Fantastic Friday and Welcome to Rosemary’s Rubies!
Our latest graduating Ignite class was one of the largest we have had. Congratulations to our Ignite class of July, 2017!
As we add more agents to our market center, we strive to offer more training opportunities to better equip and accommodate their needs. Our market center is the place to be for helping agents get into production as quickly as possible. Our new licensee coaching program, CORE, is proving to be a successful program. A special thank you to Cinda Knight and Claire Garlick for their valuable time and expertise that they are contributing to this program. We are also offering a mini Ignite boot camp this Saturday, July 15th. If you would like to attend, please RSVP by 5pm today on the Intranet Training Calendar or with Megan at the Front Desk!

Agent Tip of the Week!
TREC to emphasize enforcement of Information About Brokerage Services form rules
Posted on July 11, 2017 by TAR
Is your IABS form filled out and posted to all your business websites?
“We’re emphasizing IABS rules because far too many license holders are still not in compliance,” says Texas Real Estate Commission Chairman Avis Wukasch. “Also, now that the requirement for license holders to identify themselves in advertising as a licensed broker or agent has been eliminated, it makes the proper display and delivery of the IABS notice even more important for consumer protection.”
Texas law requires all agents and brokers to provide written notice regarding information about brokerage services at the first substantive communication with a prospective client. The Information About Brokerage Services form is the required method to provide that information to those parties.
Do you have a website?
Even if you deliver the required form in person or via email to prospective clients, you’re required to post a completed IABS form on the homepage of your business website. “Completed” means that all applicable fields are filled out—blank forms don’t count.
What counts as a business website?
If the URL is listed on your business card, yard sign, or ad, it’s a business website. TREC says it’s “any website used to attract or conduct real estate brokerage activity”—that includes Facebook business pages. If you have more than one business website, a link to your completed IABS form must be provided on the homepage of each one.
Where to get more compliance information,
