Light Bulb Agent Tips

Agent Tip of the Week! 

 

What are the duties and obligations of an intermediary?  

Section 1101.559(a) requires the intermediary to obtain written consent from both parties to act as an intermediary. A written listing agreement to represent a seller/landlord or a written buyer/tenant representation agreement which contains authorization for the broker to act as an intermediary between the parties is sufficient for the purposes of Section 1101.559(b) if the agreement sets forth, in conspicuous bold or underlined print, the conduct that is prohibited under Section 1101.651(d) and the agreement states who will pay the broker. If the intermediary is to appoint associated licensees to work with the parties, the intermediary must obtain written permission from both parties and give written notice of the appointments to each party. The intermediary is also required to treat the parties fairly and honestly and to comply with TRELA. The intermediary is prohibited from acting so as to favor one party over the other, and may not reveal confidential information obtained from one party without the written instructions of that party, unless disclosure of that information is required by TRELA, court order, or the information materially relates to the condition of the property. The intermediary and any associated licensees appointed by the intermediary are prohibited from disclosing without written authorization that the seller will accept a price less than the asking price or that the buyer will pay a price greater than the price submitted in a written offer.

 

PLEASE NOTE:
Each Keller Williams office is independently owned and operated so if you are working with an agent in another Keller Williams office, it is not an Intermediary relationship.  Also it is not Intermediary if a transaction involves an agent with another office that is brokered by Anne Lakusta.

Light Bulb Agent Tips

Agent Tip of the Week! 

Should you help a former client?
Scenario:  Your clients closed on their new home, moved in, and everything was going well …  until a few days ago when their air conditioner died.  The buyers called you to complain and to ask what you are going to do to fix it.  While you want to preserve a good relationship with your former clients, consider the following factors before you act.
 
Are you even allowed to help?  First, talk with me or Stacey Buettner since your broker is ultimately responsible for your actions and may not want you to get involved.  In addition, remember that you no longer represent the buyers since they completed the transaction for which they hired you-in this case, the purchase of a home.  This would also apply to tenants once the Lease Agreement is signed with the landlord.
 
Watch your words!  If you do get involved, avoid phrases that imply you’ll solve or fix the problem.  Instead, focus on being a resource for them to help themselves-never assume responsibility for what happened
 
Who is the best person to ask?  In the above scenario, tell the new homeowners to contact an HVAC technician or call their home warranty company (if applicable) to assess the problem.  Be careful if recommending a certain service provider, as the buyers may blame you if they have a negative experience.  Instead, you can provide a list of professionals in the area they may want to contact, while taking care not to favor one over another.  You can add them to your HomeKeepr app so they can access service providers.  If the homeowners contend the system failure was the result or negligence by the seller or the seller’s agent and they try to discuss this with you, suggest they consult an attorney.
 
At closing, you could provide your buyers a list of people to call in case of plumbing, heating, etc. problems that may arise if they do not have a home warranty.  Remind them that your job was to help them find a suitable home and accordingly, you have done that.  Ask them to keep copies of home inspection reports and any repair receipts that were provided prior to closing.  Always have a final walk through prior to closing and have the form signed.  If there is a leaseback after closing, remind your clients to deal directly with each other not the agents.
 
You never want a former client to be upset, but providing services or advice outside of an agency relationship can be risky.  If you have never encountered this exact scenario, please feel free to discuss how you should handle a similar situation with your brokerage leadership.

Facebook not showing your images properly?

Clear Facebook Cache!

Have you ever tried to create a Facebook post using a link/url? However instead of posting the image you intended to post, an older or different image was showing up? The solution most likely is to clear your Facebook cache. If you want details, read each step, if you want the quick solution, go to step #3.

  1. What is cache (pronounced “cash”)? The general definition per Merriam-Webster is “a hiding place especially for concealing and preserving provisions or implements”. How this translates to cache when referring computer technology is that it is memory in your computer/browser/program/website, etc. that stores information that has either been recently used or is frequently used. This can be instructions or data, such as images, coding or other types of information.

  2. How can this affect your Facebook posts? If you are adding a post using a link/url if there previously was a different image associated with that link, Facebook cache may be storing the previous image and wanting to associate the old image with your link instead of the newer one.

  3. The solution is to go to this debugging link and paste your link into the “Input URL” area, then select the button “Fetch new scrape information”, then copy the “Fetched URL” link and paste this into you Facebook post. This will have the updated image you were intending on posting.

Fantastic Friday and Welcome to Rosemary’s Rubies! 

The flu season is already upon us and we want everyone to stay healthy. Many of you have asked about having another flu clinic in our office this year. 

Kroger Pharmacy will be set up in The Bistro this Tuesday, October 16th, from 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. (after Partner Meeting).  
 
If you would like a flu vaccination, please bring your insurance card or credit card.  If your medical insurance does not cover it, the cost is $25.00.  You will need to complete a vaccine consent form and I have put some at the front desk for you to complete ahead of time.  I thought I would share this chart so you will know some of the differences:
image (84)
Please stay home if you have flu symptoms or running fever!
If your children are sick and unable to attend school, please keep them home as well.  We do not want a flu epidemic in our market center.  Hand washing is vital to prevent the spread of germs and we will be posting some reminders around our office.

Light Bulb Agent Tips

Agent Tip of the Week! 

How long does an “agent” have to deposit the earnest money once a binding contact has been negotiated?
 
The earnest money must be deposited by the close of business of the second working day after execution of the contract by the principals, unless a different time is agreed upon in writing by the principals to the transaction. [Rule 535.146(b)(3)]  
 
Per paragraph 5 of the 1-4 Family Residential Contract:
  
EARNEST MONEY: Within 3 days after the Effective Date, Buyer must deliver $_____________ as earnest money to _______________________, as escrow agent, at _______________________________________________ (address). Buyer shall deliver additional earnest money of $____________ to escrow agent within _____ days after the Effective Date of this contract. If Buyer fails to deliver the earnest money within the time required, Seller may terminate this contract or exercise Seller’s remedies under Paragraph 15, or both, by providing notice to Buyer before Buyer delivers the earnest money. If the last day to deliver the earnest money falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday, the time to deliver the earnest money is extended until the end of the next day that is not a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday. Time is of the essence for this paragraph.

Light Bulb Agent Tips

Agent Tip of the Week!

Are You Sure No One is Listening to Your Private Conversation?

If you’re on the go, it may be easiest to take a call about the next negotiation step while in line for your morning coffee. But be careful … while those around you may not hear the other side of the conversation, what they hear you saying may be more than what your client wanted known.

Even in-person conversations can be critical moments for confidentiality. For instance, imagine you’re debriefing outside a home you just viewed with your clients. Would you want the neighbor walking her dog to overhear how they would offer more than asking because they love the house?

Always be mindful of who can eavesdrop on your crucial conversations especially in the office. If your client—or an assistant or other agent—wants to start a discussion about a delicate topic, suggest you pause until you can get to a more private place.

Megan’s Memo! 

GUESS WHAT TIME IT IS!!! 

It’s Kelle Contest Time!!! 

We are going to be doing “Kelle Bingo” through the end of October. Every Monday, we will announce the rules (straight line, four corners, blackout etc) for the week in order to qualify to win. At the end of each week, all you have to do is send me your card with the screenshots of the tasks that you have accomplished and you will be entered into a drawing to win a prize! DO NOT THROW AWAY YOUR CARD! You will need all of those spaces for the eventual blackout goal that will be announced for the last week of October!

Dotloop Contacts

Have you had to type a clients information in again and again? Here is the solution!

If you have a client selling, and you have entered their personal information (email, phone number, address, etc.) in the “seller’s loop”, then they also purchase a home with you and you create a “buyer’s loop”, typically their information does not populate into the second loop. Here is how to solve that problem.

An overview of people and contacts (from Dotloop Support Documentation)

Whenever we add anyone to a loop we will enter their first and last name, their email address typically, and their role. Once you have selected the appropriate role, more information will be presented to fill. dotloop takes this information and uses it to autofill your documents for you, but it also adds this person’s name and email address to your CONTACTS. This is important because any time you add that same individual to a loop in the future, dotloop will predict their information after you key in a few characters of their name or email.

To have a clients information autofill in a “buyer’s loop” after they have been entered into a “seller’s loop”, all you need to do is go to the Dotloop “People” section (menu item at the very top), on the left menu select “Contacts”, then find contact and change that contacts role from “Seller” to “Buyer”. Per Dotloop Support, this will not change anything in the seller’s loop for this client, but it will allow this person’s information to be auto-filled into the buyer’s Loop.

You can also update any contacts information here in the contacts, as needed.

Fantastic Friday and Welcome to Rosemary’s Rubies! 

I hope everyone has had a chance to review our revised Independent Contractor Agreement (ICA) that was sent out on 8/23/18 along with viewing Stacey’s video.  Before the holidays hit and we all get extra busy, please sign and return the new Independent Contractor Agreement to me at your earliest convenience.  If you don’t have the email that I sent on 8/23/18, please let me know so I can resend the new ICA to you.  There are also paper copies at the front desk.  Our broker does require that everyone sign the ICA by the end of the year.  If you will sign and return to me as soon as possible, I will be most grateful.  
Pretty Please!!!!!

Light Bulb Agent Tips

Agent Tip of the Week! 

Keller Williams REALTY® is a full service brokerage and NOT a discount brokerage.  If a client is purchasing a home from you and you are willing to discount on the sale of their current home, you are welcome to do so on a case-by-case basis.  You can never advertise a discount to the general public but a discount can be offered on an individual basis.  A most recent example is a KW agent that publicized a 1% Listing Commission on their yard sign and this is NOT allowed.  Please do not promote discounts on any mass marketing or advertising materials.  To your benefit and the integrity of our brokerage, there is value to being part of a full service brokerage.  There are discount brokerages out there and Keller Williams REALTY® is NOT one of them!

  Please keep in mind that The Real Estate License Act (TRELA) has regulations for transactions and there are minimum services that must be performed by all brokerages including limited service brokerages.

Search our KW DMN Closed Facebook Group

How many of you know that you can search our KW DMN staff/agent closed Facebook group to find what you need? Are you looking for a vendor referral such as a plumber or staging professional? Are you looking for an open house opportunity or a “Coming Soon” that have been posted in our group? Or even better, are you looking to find the latest technology announcements and updates that have been posted? Go to the group search bar on the left side of the page (see image below) and search for what you are looking for. It is that easy!

How does this help?

If you are needing a recommended plumber, you can search and see what agents have said in the past. If that question has not recently been asked, go ahead and post it again. If it has been posted recently, you have an immediate answer! This helps you to get faster answers and it also keeps our group feed cleaner.

If you are wondering about the latest technology information? I (Tammy), as well as the rest of our staff, have been putting #tech in our posts about the latest technology announcements. This helps you not miss the latest updates. Realize that Facebook algorithms not only apply to your personal Facebook news feed but also applies to our Group. Do a search to not miss out on the latest information!
