Fantastic Friday and Welcome to Rosemary’s Rubies! 

It’s almost May everyone so do you know what that means?  April showers bring May flowers AND KWDMN FAMILY PICNIC AND RED WEEK!!!!!  I am so excited about all of our upcoming activities and not to forget our Listing Contest.  I love walking by the front hall bulletin board (thanks to Megan) and seeing all of those listings coming in.  Congratulations to Kathy Kiefer’s team as they are in the lead so far.  The month is not over so everyone still has a chance for this month’s contest.  We will announce the April contest team winner next week.  



Welcome Glad You're Here

Light Bulb Agent Tips

Agent Tip of the Week! 

If you have not changed our broker name on your Information About Brokerage Services (IABS) form, please make sure it has Anne Lakusta as broker, License #452271 (NOT Barbara Trumbull).  TREC requires you have links to a completed Information About Brokerage Services and the Consumer Protection Notice on all public websites and social media sites.  Your IABS form should be filled out completely when it is linked to your website as well as when it is provided during the first substantive communication.  If not presenting the IABS in person, you may attach your completed IABS to an email or provide a link to your completed IABS in the body of your email (above your signature line). 
  I have been notified this week that some of our agents still show Barbara Trumbull as our broker and some agents do not have their links posted properly.  Please read the following TREC tips for posting the IABS and Consumer Protection Notice:

Tips for Posting the IABS and Consumer Protection Notice

unnamed (7)

Ideal way to post IABS and Consumer Notice to comply with our rules:

Post a link to a completely filled out TREC IABS form labeled “Texas Real Estate Commission Information About Brokerage Service,” on your business website homepage, in a readily noticeable place in at least 10 point font.

Post a link to the Consumer Protection Notice labeled “Texas Real Estate Commission Consumer Protection Notice” on your business website homepage in a readily noticeable place in at least 10 point font.

Acceptable alternate ways to post your IABS and Consumer Notice:

Post an image of the completed IABS form, or the Consumer Protection Notice and label the image “Texas Real Estate Commission Information About Brokerage Services” or “Texas Real Estate Commission Consumer Protection Notice.”

  • You can save a PDF as a .jpg and post it as an image on Facebook, Twitter and Traditional Websites.
  • On Facebook, make the image a “Favorite” image so the completed form stays at the top of your images.

Remember: The TREC IABS form must also be provided to consumers at the time of your first substantive communication by personal delivery, mail or email.

 TREC has created some videos to further explain these requirements and how to ensure you are in compliance with the requirements:

Email Signature Instructions

How to update your email signature

If you are not familiar with your how to access and change your email signature, remember it is a Business Gmail account, so you change it the same way you do any Gmail account.

To update your signature, follow these instructions:

  • Open your Gmail or email

  • Click on the settings “wheel” at the top right corner just under your picture or your initials.

  • Click on Settings

  • Under the general settings tab that opens first by default, scroll down to where is says “Signature”

  • Click the button that allows you to enter a signature in the space provided.

Items to have in your signature line:

You can personalize this, like adding your name, contact info, brokerage info, etc. However there is also some required information. 

1. Wire Fraud notice – copy and paste the below wire fraud notice into your signature line. You can find it at the bottom of any email that is sent to you from our staff, also see below in yellow. 

2. Brokerage information – you always want to identify your broker. TREC is strict on being sure it is clear you are a realtor, and identifying your broker.

3. Texas Real Estate Commission Forms/Notices – you want to provide a link to your completed TREC IABS form and the TREC Consumer Protection Notice.

Example signature line:

Texas Real Estate Commission Information About Brokerage Services
Texas Real Estate Commission Consumer Protection Notice
