Voice Activating Real Estate

Mission Statement

Provide real estate agents, their sellers and potential buyers an out of the box showing experience.

This is something we have been working on a while and now it is time to make this available to real estate agents. We put the work in to provide you with the voice of a new era.

Real estate is an extremely competitive profession.  A profession that continues to grow in numbers even during the direst times.  The real estate industry is constantly growing and changing. I think we would all agree.  Now more than ever you need an edge, something that sets you apart from the rest of the competition.  Let’s talk about that.

So you want your clients to reach their end goal… leaving the closing table a happy client.  We want to provide you with a service that we believe will increase top of mind awareness, information, engagement and elicit a positive response.  Let us help you take your in-home marketing to the next level.

We provide everything needed to bring your listing alive converting it from bland and boring to a VOICE GUIDED HOME that every buyer will remember.  We make the process seamless for you and your client.  We do all the heavy lifting behind the scenes and you can honestly say that you are a technology trend setter with us as your partner.  We provide the in-home voice activated device, an in-home activation sign, a 6” x 24” sign rider, in-home setup and behind the scenes script, programming and so much more.  

So now it’s time to upgrade your listings and make them all VOICE GUIDED HOMES.  Give me a call (281-467-4691) or email me Scott@ScottCulberson.com for pricing and other details.

Mother’s Day 2020

Change is inevitable, but I think that we will all agree that the amount of change we have endured in such a small time is unbelievable.  Change is here and some of that change will remain.  One thing that remains unchanged is the love and devotion of your mother.  From nine months in the womb, to birthday parties, graduation and numerous first she is and always be your number one fan.  She is there to help you, to guide you, and grow you into the adult that you should be.  I know that some of us will not get to spend time with our mother today and while that is unfortunate, we love you more now than ever mom, mother, madre.  I hope all the mothers out their have a super, good, awesome MOTHER’S DAY.

Live Life to the Fullest,

Scott

VERIFYING YOUR IDENTITY FOR BROADCAST C.E. CLASSES

Preparing for broadcast/zoom/online learning can appear very challenging, especially if you are a real estate agent that wants to use their stay at home time to complete their T.R.E.C. required continuing education.  Deep breath in, deep breath out, this post will go over four ways for you to verify your identity with your online instructor so that you can receive T.R.E.C. continuing education credit. 

The T.R.E.C. rule stating that your identity must be verified for continuing education credit has been in place for years and as a matter of fact https://www.texasrealestate.com/ has been offering broadcast classes for years as well so they created a  tool to help in the identification process. It is easy to use and it is free.

  1. FAST PASS

Screenshot of the profile screen on your Fast Pass that you will send through a private chat that will serve as the TREC-required photo identification verification. You can access your Fast Pass profile on TexasRealEstate.com at https://apps.texasrealestate.com/user_profi/id_card/
once you’re logged in to the site.

Your FAST PASS will have YOUR photo and license information
  1. SCAN IN 

If you are taking a broadcast class from the Houston Association of REALTORS ® when you log into the Zoom class you will see a QR code on the screen.  You will open the H.A.R. app on your phone and scan the QR code and you’re not only checked in, but you’ve passed the TREC-required photo identification verification .  One note, your photo must be on your HAR profile in order for this to work so check on this before logging into a H.A.R. class. No charge to scan in using the H.A.R. app. My guess is other associations may have similar procedures in place.

  1. DRIVERS LICENCE

This is my least favorite way to have your identity verified, but sometimes it is the option that the instructor is requesting.  Screenshot a picture of your driver’s license and send through a private chat. That will serve as the TREC-required photo identification verification.. 

  1. ASK

Really that should be the only three ways to verify your identity in order to meet the TREC-required photo identification verification, unless I have missed  some. I personally am a big fan of the FAST PASS, it uses your real estate licensing information and all of this information is already accessible by the public and this verification method can be accepted by any continuing education instructor in Texas easily.  I do like the H.A.R. scan in method, but that only works if you are taking one of their classes. In conclusion ASK how your identity is going to be verified before you go and shell out some money for a class.  

If you have any questions you can email me at Scott@ScottCulberson.com
