New remax.com and syndication issues..

posted Dec 20, 2015, 6:44 AM by Brian G. Walsh   [ updated Dec 20, 2015, 6:44 AM ]

It's unfortunate but with change comes problems..  When writing descriptions for your listings try to eliminate the use of quotes, slashes and if at all possible apostrophes (at least for the time being).  When listings are sent to remax.com these characters are causing jibberish to be added to descriptions which in turn causes the flawed descriptions to be sent to Trulia, Zillow & remax.com.  There have also been issues with the photos not getting over to remax.com.  Best to warn sellers of potential hiccups in case they are the type to be watching for listing and keep an eye out at these different locations yourself within first 24 - 48 hours to see if there are any issues and if so let me know and I will do my best to correct.  Thank you!

The skinny little boy from Lakewood, Ohio has done it again..  It has not been announced officially but we can add 35 photos to our listings in the MLS.  The MLS is sending 1024 X 768 res images now instead of the smaller 640 X 480 images.  And let's not forget, we have up to 1,500 characters to describe the property, too.  I have to hand it to Carl DeMusz for making all these things happen!  Thank you!

Why people buy?

I watched this VIDEO dealing with why people buy from certain companies, vote for certain candidates and/or get behind certain issues.  I believe in what this gentleman has to say and also believe it may be helpful to those of you who are interested in finding another means of conveying to clients why they should climb on board with you.  Happy to discuss further with any of you that might find this to be helpful.  Thank you.

You can download a program called GWX Control Panel and stop it from happening.  Here is link to program and I am happy to help you with it if you like.  Best to wait until the kniks are worked out of Win 10 if possible (probably another year).  Thank you.  http://ultimateoutsider.com/downloads/GwxControlPanelSetup.exe

Brokerage license number required on new closing disclosure statement..

posted Dec 1, 2015, 5:35 PM by Brian G. Walsh   [ updated Dec 1, 2015, 5:35 PM ]

You may be asked for our brokerage license number by the title company or lending institution as it is required on the new closing disclosure.  It is not the company MLS ID, it is the company's identification number with the State of Ohio which is: REC.2002015785  Thank you.

Rosewood Grill is now open and will open for lunch on Monday, October 19th..

We sincerely appreciate your patience throughout the construction including the many fire alarms and other distractions.  For those of you who park in the rear of the complex, thank you!  For those of you who park out front, it would be extremely helpful if you could park in the rear.  The spaces out front will be more important then ever once Rosewood starts serving lunch as we will still need room for the bank clientele and customers and clients coming in and out of the offices.  Thank you.
