Real Estate LinkedIn Posters

I've started to increasingly use LinkedIn as a source of industry news and commentary.

I am open to suggestions for good Real Estate professionals to follow. Some market research guys are interesting, as are some veteran principals.

Any recommendations?

I just try to follow brokerage firms, REPE shops, REITs, and management companies in my sector. 

Alas, LinkedIn is becoming a cesspool of lame, schmaltzy, and irrelevant emotional posts by HR people telling us to be more progressive on a host of social responsibility/corporate political correctness issues. There are plenty of vaguely entrepreneurially-titled individuals who write...............long get you to unroll via the "Read More" button................with shocking initial statements.........that end up being safe, non-controversial motivational pablum. And don't forget the virtue signals, which are so strong on there now that they interfere with most electronic devices. People like to pat themselves on the back for being nice to random homeless people, helping the elderly, or being the ONLY ONE in the office who chose to mentor a poor, illiterate, narcoleptic transsexual/<insert minority> who was on final written warning until their LinkedIn savior intervened, taught them life skills, and can take credit when the aforementioned ends up as CEO.

It's becoming a shitty platform. I've used it effectively to see what other firms are doing and to develop contacts, and have had luck with cold outreach to learn about different job opportunities over the years. But using it is getting to be tiresome and irritating on a daily basis.

I have done the same and found it to be the most useful place for news. It did take a long time to unfollow everyone not in the industry, though.

Yeah bro and don't even get me started on the clowns that post their motivational drivel about how owning a home is the most incredible value creation opportunity in life and how you're setting yourself behind if you rent. yawn next

If you know enough to sort through those kinds of self-bragging posts, then LinkedIn can be a great source of news.  It's just that few people are self-aware enough to admit when they don't know enough to have it be valuable.

It's like any other social media.  99% of the people posting are either self-obsessed idiots not worth listening to, or running a grift and therefore not worth listening to.  If you can focus in on the 1% of content that is useful, it's great!  Very few people can...

Yea basically dooms day. Guy is a knuckle head. Pathetic. Imagine posting the stuff he posts at a firm if he were at a firm like Starwood. Impossible.

I laughed out loud at this. 

Side note: what do we think of all the people who announce their layoff and then kiss the ass of the company that laid them off? I suppose it makes you look "good", i.e., palatable to other potential soulless corporations, if you can say positive and thankful things about the last overlord who abused you. I hate it. If someone lays you off, you have the right to hate their guts. 

Just once, I kind of want to see someone make an honest "open to new opportunities" post where they open up with both barrels on the last firm they worked at.

I don't think those corporations would read that shit anyways but from an opinion perspective, writing that up is equivalent to saying thank u to the guy that fucked ur wife

Not specific for RE but Michael Cembalest from JPM PB posts once a month or so with a quick version of his eye on the markets which are one of the best reads out there. LinkedIn is the only place I have found to get them consistently if you're outside JPM, so well worth it if you're already on there. Similar to a Howard Marks but not as old, shorter, and more interesting imo.
