There are two distinct approaches to marketing in real estate: the old school, conventional methods, and the new school, digital strategies. While some agents prefer traditional techniques, others have embraced the power of digital marketing.

However, instead of viewing these two approaches as conflicting, there are significant opportunities for collaboration. In this article, we will explore how old school agents and new school agents can work together to achieve mutual success.

Leveraging Experience and Trust

Old school real estate agents possess a wealth of experience and a broad network of contacts built over years in the industry. They have established trust within their communities, making them valuable assets for new school agents.


By partnering with experienced agents, newer agents can tap into their knowledge, gain access to established client bases, and build credibility in the industry.

Integrating Traditional and Digital Methods

Rather than viewing traditional and digital marketing as mutually exclusive, a combination of the two can be a winning strategy. Fans of traditional marketing can benefit from new school techniques by incorporating digital platforms into their marketing efforts.


This might involve using social media to showcase listings, creating online virtual tours, or leveraging email marketing campaigns. By embracing digital tools, old school agents can expand their reach and engage with a wider audience.

Collaborative Advertising

Old school agents often have established relationships with local newspapers, magazines, and other traditional advertising outlets. By partnering with new school agents, they can leverage these connections to promote their listings through digital channels.


This collaboration also allows new school agents to tap into the existing advertising infrastructure, gaining exposure to potential buyers who still rely on traditional media sources.

Both Schools of Real Estate Agents Can Learn from Each Other

Experienced, old school agents bring years of industry knowledge, while digitally engaged, new school agents are well-versed in the latest digital marketing trends. By collaborating, both parties can learn from each other's strengths.


Traditional marketing agents can gain insights into the digital landscape, such as search engine optimization, social media marketing, and online lead generation.


Simultaneously, digital marketing agents can benefit from the wisdom and experience of their tenured counterparts, honing their negotiation skills and building stronger client relationships.
