Fantastic Friday and Welcome to Rosemary’s Rubies! 

Rain, Rain, Go Away, Come Again Another Day, We Have Open Houses Saturday and Sunday.  Let’s chant and hope it won’t keep the buyers away!  
 
I pray our family and friends on the East Coast and everywhere are safe due to the hurricane and storms.  We are coordinating a Hurricane Relief fundraiser “Pasta With A Purpose” on Monday, October 8th, from 6:00 – 7:30 p.m.  More Information will be posted in the near future. 
 
Weather forecast predicts cloudy and muggy weather will continue today through the weekend with increasing rain chances each afternoon. Scattered showers and isolated storms will be possible by mid-afternoon. So keep the umbrella handy if you have outdoor plans. While rain chances will remain low this evening, the opportunity for more showers and storms will increase as we head into the weekend. The heaviest rainfall totals will be across Central Texas.

Light Bulb Agent Tips

Agent Tip of the Week! 

Should an agent present the first offer received so that the seller accepts or rejects it before presenting the second offer?

The listing agent represents the seller and has a duty to present all offers in a timely manner to the seller. There is no prohibition against a license holder presenting more than one offer at a time to a seller. A seller may receive, review and negotiate several offers simultaneously.*

Light Bulb Agent Tips

Agent Tip of the Week! 

Can a license holder offer to give a $50 gift card to an unlicensed person for referring a potential buyer or lessee?

Although a license holder may not pay an unlicensed person valuable consideration for referring a potential lessee or buyer, gifts of merchandise with a retail value of $50 or less are not considered valuable consideration. [Rule 535.20(a)] Therefore, a $50 gift card that is only redeemable for certain merchandise (e.g. a gift card to a restaurant or department store) is not defined as valuable consideration and is permissible. A gift card from a bank (e.g. Visa or American Express), however, which can be converted to cash is not permissible. Any amount of cash or a credit or bonus toward rent owed is also not allowed as a reward for a referral.

Red Rubies Image

Fantastic Friday and Welcome to Rosemary’s Rubies!

 

Our office is closed this Monday, September 3, in observance of the Labor Day holiday.  
Celebrate the long weekend by doing something special for all of your hard work.  I am looking forward to a 3 day weekend that includes some rest and relaxation.  Labor Day is celebrated on the first Monday in September every year, marking the end of summer, unofficially. (The official last day of summer is September 22.)  It’s a day when we honor the American worker and we tip our hat goodbye to Summer.  From parades and festivals to barbecues and football, the American worker first celebrated Labor Day in New York in 1882 with a picnic and a parade.  What are your plans to celebrate this Labor Day?

Light Bulb Agent Tips

Agent Tip of the Week!

 

Can an individual sales agent use an assumed business name in advertising?

No. Any name used by an individual sales agent, other than the name on the license or a registered alternate name, is considered a team name under TREC rules and must meet the team name requirements. [Rule 535.154(a)(5)] 

 

What is the difference between an assumed business name and a team name?
 

Assumed Business Name (also known as a dba) is another name for the broker’s business that can be used by all sponsored sales agents and brokers associated with this broker. Another name that indicates a broker’s line of business, e.g.  property management or commercial, is also an assumed business name of the broker, even though it may not be available for use by all sponsored agents and associated brokers. [Rule 535.154(a)(4)]

Team Name is a name used only by a team or group of one or more sponsored sales agents or brokers associated with this broker. Team names must end in “team” or “group” and cannot contain the words “brokerage”, “company”, “associates” or other similar terms. [Rule 535.154(a)(5)]

 

 
Who registers an assumed business name, team or alternate name?
 
 

Assumed Business Name: Broker [Rule 535.154(d)(1)]

Team Name: Broker [Rule 535.154(c)(3)]

Alternate Name: Individual License Holder [Rule 535.154(b)(1)]

Remember — all these types of names must be registered with TREC before use in advertising.

Rosemary’s Rubies August 24th 2018

Red Rubies Image

Fantastic Friday and Welcome to Rosemary’s Rubies! 

We have a new Independent Contractor Agreement (ICA) that we will be asking all agents and broker associates to sign soon.  We want to share with you the changes, so that you may ask any questions and feel comfortable with the agreement.
 

Our Team Leader, Stacey Buettner, sent out a video explaining the changes this past Wednesday.  I sent out a follow up email yesterday so please check if you have not seen or had time to review these emails.

 
Here are a few things of note – and of course we encourage you to read the entire ICA:  
* This new agreement emphasizes our Independent Contractor status.  This is important for tax purposes and we want to be sure you understand – so ask questions if you do not!
* This new agreement also is very specific about registering any names you use in your business.  TREC is taking this very seriously and it’s important that we be clearly identified as your brokerage.  
* Note that TREC requires us to be clear about what you have authority to do – and specifically property management is restricted at our brokerage.  Plus, we do want our agents to be experts in the transactions they are involved in – so if you are outside of your specialty area – then please talk to our Team Leader.
* Unfortunately, any agreement must include some details about what happens if you/we get sued – and they are in Paragraph 5(A).   
* You also must have the correct auto insurance coverage and us as your brokerage must be included as an additional insured.  
* Probably most importantly for you as an agent,  Paragraph 6(A) re-assures that you may take your business with you if you leave. AND it adds that a team agreement should be in writing and may override this agreement.

If you prefer to sign the new ICA and return to me, please be sure to sign both pages 7 and 8.  You can send to me through Dotloop, email or drop it by my office.  Thank You!

Light Bulb Agent Tips

Agent Tip of the Week! 

Educate Yourself and Your Sellers About The Use Of Keyboxes and Lockboxes!
 
 
TAR-1101 Listing Agreement, Paragraph 7C and 7D: A keybox is a locked container placed on the Property that holds a key to the Property. A keybox makes it more convenient for brokers, their associates, inspectors, appraisers, and contractors to show, inspect, or repair the Property. The keybox is opened by a special combination, key, or programmed device so that authorized persons may enter the Property, even in Seller’s absence. Using a keybox will probably increase the number of showings, but involves risks (for example, unauthorized entry, theft, property damage, or personal injury). Neither the Association of REALTORS® nor MLS requires the use of a keybox. (1) Broker  is  is not authorized to place a keybox on the Property. (2) If a tenant occupies the Property at any time during this Listing, Seller will furnish Broker a written statement (for example, TAR No. 1411), signed by all tenants, authorizing the use of a keybox or Broker may remove the keybox from the Property.  D. Liability and Indemnification: When authorizing access to the Property, Broker, other brokers, their associates, any keybox provider, or any scheduling company are not responsible for personal injury or property loss to Seller or any other person. Seller assumes all risk of any loss, damage, or injury. Except for a loss caused by Broker, Seller will indemnify and hold Broker harmless from any claim for personal injury, property damage, or other loss. 
 
If a property is occupied, you must use a keybox that registers the party accessing the key.  It must provide timely access to the property.  Electronic keyboxes not only register the key user, but also are programmed to allow access only during specific hours (default is 8:00 am – 9:00 pm).  A combo lockbox does not provide the security required for the occupants (owner or renter) as once the code is given out, the property can be accessed at any time, by any person who has the 4 digit code. 
 
In a nutshell, all occupied properties must use an electronic keybox!

Light Bulb Agent Tips

Agent Tip of the Week! 

I am asked this question frequently:

 

Does TREC consider promotional items and sponsorships to be advertising?

 

Yes.  If a sales agent’s name or team name is on them, the broker’s name must also be present (in at least half the size).  A broker’s name alone is okay.  TREC Rule 535.155(b)(1)

 


image (64)

There have been some revisions to our Policy and Associate Handbooks.  You can find the newest copies on our Market Center Intranet, Documents folder, Policies and Procedures.

 


 

image (66)

Using “Realty” In Team Names

At the Commission Meeting on Monday, August 13, 2018, the Commission adopted changes to the advertising rules (§535.155) allowing Broker team names to include the term “realty,” so long as the other requirements for team names are met. For example, a team name must still end with the word “team” or “group.” A team name of “John Doe Realty Group” is allowed, but a team name of “John Doe Realty” is not. The Commission adopted these changes based on feedback received from license holders, so we thank you for your input!

TREC has many resources available to license holders on the TREC website, including several online town halls, our article entitled “What’s in a Name? Advertising Name Types under TREC Rule 535.154” explaining the name types and which ones to use, and our FAQs on Advertising.

WELCOME VENUS MENDOZA, ASSISTANT TEAM LEADER!

Venus Mendoza.jpg

Born and raised in San Antonio, Texas, Venus is an alumna of the University of Texas at San Antonio. She began her real estate career with Keller Williams in 2012 as an assistant to a luxury real estate team. She served the luxury team in a variety of roles and finally as a sales agent and trainer. She and her Fiance moved to Dallas in early 2017 and she most recently served as a Keller Williams Productivity Coach at a neighboring market center.  
 
Venus is driven by her mission to inspire and motivate those around her to build their own legacies worth leaving. She continues to mentor young women at her alma mater and is why her role as an Assistant Team Leader at Dallas Metro North is an ideal fit. 
 
When she is not helping agents build a business worth owning, Venus spends her time with her Fiance, Robert. You’ll likely find them spending time outdoors with their two dogs, traveling, or planning their dream wedding! Venus finds joy in cooking, reading, and is also very passionate about health and fitness. 

Please join us today at 4:00 p.m. for a special Wine Down so everyone can meet and greet Venus.  Let’s give her a BIG KWDMN WELCOME!

Light Bulb Agent Tips

Agent Tip of the Week! 

 

When Can An Agent Say That They “SOLD” A Property In An Advertisement?
 
 
Any agent who worked with the seller or the buyer in a transaction that resulted in the sale of a property may correctly state in an advertisement that they “SOLD” the property.  If the license holder did not participate in that specific transaction, he cannot state or imply that his actions resulted in the sale of the property.  An example of a misleading advertisement of this nature would be if a license holder sent out “Just SOLD” postcards with her contact information and a picture of a recently sold property that she did not help to sell.  She didn’t state that she SOLD it but an average person reading the card could surely and reasonably imply an erroneous claim of involvement.  Another potential example of a misleading advertisement is a license holder who included a list of “Recently SOLD Homes” in his advertisement that included many properties where he had no role in the transaction, but he failed to make it clear in the ad which-if any-of those transactions he was involved in.  Under Texas law, a license holder may not “create a misleading impression” in their advertisement.

Be cautious of your discussions in public areas around the Market Center especially in the bullpens.  If the topic is unprofessional or questionable, please refrain and have those discussions in private or away from the office.  Some could be offended so please keep our KWDMN atmosphere and culture positive and professional.
