Fantastic Friday and Welcome to Rosemary’s Rubies! 

Best wishes to Erin Fulton as she begins a new position as administrative assistant for our very own agent, Lois Lyles.  I am blessed to have worked with Erin and she has been an asset to our leadership and staff.  We will still see her smiling face since she and Lois will office in our market center.

Light Bulb Agent Tips

Agent Tip of the Week! 

New Form Changes!
Please pay attention to Paragraph 21 of the Residential Real Estate Listing Agreement.
I. If Seller is a “foreign person” as defined by federal law, a buyer may be required to withhold certain amounts from the sales proceeds and deliver the same to the Internal Revenue Service to comply with applicable tax law. A “foreign person” is a: (1) nonresident alien individual; (2) foreign corporation that has not made an election under section 897(i) of the Internal Revenue Code to be treated as a domestic corporation; or (3) foreign partnership, trust, or estate. The definition does not include a resident alien individual. Seller notifies Broker that Seller  is  is not a “foreign person” as defined by federal law. If Seller is unsure whether Seller qualifies as a “foreign person” under federal law, Broker advises Seller to consult a tax professional or an attorney. J. Broker advises Seller to refrain from transmitting personal information, such as bank account

Paragraph 20 of the One to Four Family Residential Contract is amended to clarify “applicable law” and an “affidavit” when a Seller is a “foreign person”:


If Seller is a “foreign person,” as defined by Internal Revenue Code and its regulations, or if Seller fails to deliver an affidavit or a certificate of non-foreign status to Buyer that Seller is not a “foreign person,” then Buyer shall withhold from the sales proceeds an amount sufficient to comply with applicable tax law and deliver the same to the Internal Revenue Service together with appropriate tax forms. Internal Revenue Service regulations require filing written reports if currency in excess of specified amounts is received in the transaction.

Tammy’s Tech Tip! 

Tammy’s Tech Tip this week is about a tiny little tool with a big purpose! If you use Windows 10 and have not been introduced to the “Snipping Tool” fondly renamed by me as “the snipper” – you need to meet! A very quick way to copy all or part of your screen and save it in a file. It has more options than just a “print screen” – More options, fewer steps! Do you ever need to change some file type into an image file? Show someone screenshot of all or part of your screen? This makes those tasks and many others very quick and easy. Go to link for a great description. The quick version is to go to your Windows 10 search bar, type in “snipping tool” and select it. Here are some great instructions!



Tech Reminder

The Rook: The Power of Branding on Social Sites, Tuesday, April 10 at 1:30 – 3:00

Training Room A, please RSVP on the intranet calendar.

Learn about the power of the internet and social media marketing.  Statistics show that almost all home buyers & sellers are using the internet & social media, yet most Realtors are still unaware of how to take advantage of some of the most effective internet marketing tactics. Technology can also be a point of frustration for Realtors because while most understand that technology and internet marketing is important, they either don’t understand how to use it to get leads or they simply don’t know where to start and get completely overwhelmed. This course will break down these powerful marketing tactics and by the end of the course, the agent will pick one or two marketing strategies that suit their business and leave with an action plan. By implementing this action plan, the agent will get more leads which will result in more closings.
