    Realtor Facebook page - personal, group or fan?


    I'm about to set up a new facebook page for our real estate business (my husband and I).

    My gut instinct is to create a new personal page as one of the most important features we are going to use is the ability to interact on a personal level with clients.

    But before I do so, I thought I'd get some opinions on whether to do this or do a group or fan page.

    Business - Fan page. You can later get a tab with your listings, email signup, and a custom FBML tab with your bio page or testimonials, or a landing "tab" for whatever your awards/accomplishments or just about any thing you can think of!

    Fan pages also have metrics. A group would be better if it was something like for a realty group at the state level. Not a bad way to build your authority on the subject, but could take a lot of your time & effort.

    You can have a personal account and fan page. The personal account can be the administrator of your fan page, can add friends, talk to them etc.
    Unless you have reasons not to do it, you should have the personal account with your real name(s)

    There are a lot of ways to communicate with a fan page. I still recommend having your personal profile of course, but everything business related can just go on the fan page then.
