Keller Williams is asking each market center to implement a “Mock Disaster Drill” in the near future.  We want to be prepared in case of a real emergency or natural disaster so we will have mock drills periodically.  Once we receive notification from KWRI, you could receive a text, email, phone call and/or Facebook notification so you can mark yourself “safe”.  We are testing our disaster relief plan to be sure we can contact each of our agents to check on your welfare so please let us know you are safe as quickly as possible.  Thank you for your cooperation!

If you have not noticed the new signage behind our front desk, our AED has arrived!

image

What is an AED you ask?
 
An AED, or automated external defibrillator, is used to help those experiencing sudden cardiac arrest. It’s a sophisticated, yet easy-to-use, medical device that can analyze the heart’s rhythm and, if necessary, deliver an electrical shock, or defibrillation, to help the heart re-establish an effective rhythm.
 
Our AED is located in an alarmed cabinet behind the front desk in case of an actual emergency.  Some people in our office have been trained and are CPR certified so if you are as well, please let us know. 

WINE DOWN TODAY!

Join us in the downstairs Bistro for Beer, Wine, and light snacks!

Light Bulb Agent Tips

Agent Tip of the Week!

Do You Have a Question About TREC’s Laws or Rules? Here’s a Few Tips for Help

Did you know that TREC’s Standards and Enforcement Services (SES) staff are available to answer certain legal questions by email or phone?

SES carries out the Commission’s mission to protect Texas consumers by enforcing the laws and rules that regulate real estate brokers and sales agents, real estate (home) inspectors, residential service (home warranty) companies, and timeshare providers. SES also implements the relevant standards and reviews applications for licensure and determinations of moral character to assess the honesty, integrity, and trustworthiness of applicants.

We know you sometimes have questions about TREC rules or laws related to the specific areas SES handles and they are available to help. You may call SES directly at 512-936-3005 or you can also email your questions directly to enforcement@trec.texas.gov.

Tammy Bunk has added contact information for SES to our Tech Page at www.KWMetroNorthTech.com

Areas for which SES can help

  • Compliance-related questions about laws and rules
  • Complaint procedures and requirements.
  • A pending case if you’re the complainant or respondent (have the file number, please, so that the call or email may be referred to the responsible party)
  • A closed case (have the file number, please, so that the case may be referred to the correct person)
  • The general areas over which the Commission has jurisdiction
  • License eligibility requirements related to background issues such as criminal history
  • Advertising – only if you’re a broker.  Calls or emails from a sales agent are referred to the sponsoring broker because the broker must ensure that each sponsored sales agent complies with TREC advertising rules.

Where can I find an answer before calling or emailing SES with a question?

The Commission has an extensive FAQ page that answers many questions. You can search by category or do a word search on the webpage to find your topic. You can also search on their website for a relevant article or form. Use the “Site Search” feature that is on the top of most pages of their website.

They also have disciplinary history information available and it’s searchable by name, license type, dates, cities, case number, and violations. You can also see a specific license holder’s disciplinary history by looking up the license holder using the “license holder search” feature and then selecting the “print license history” button.

They have extensive information on their website about filing a complaintthe complaint process, a detailed complaint overview manual, and FAQs on the complaint process (search by the category “How Are Disputes Handled?” or do a word search with “complaint”).

What else should I do before calling or emailing?

One of their staff attorneys can better assist you on a call or email when you provide the following information:

  • Your license number (if you’re a TREC license holder)
  • If you email them, please provide a call back number so their staff attorney can reach you for any needed clarification to better answer your question.
