Keeping Your Cell Phone Safe from Security Threats!

I was reading an email sent to us from Keller Williams corporate regarding Phishing Scams and thought that I should share this information.  According to the email:

To avoid phishing scams:

  • Never reply to email asking for personal information
  • Only divulge personal information when you initiate the service call
  • If you receive a request to wire money, pick up the phone and talk with someone to validate
  • When in doubt, do not click a link (Open a separate web browser and log directly into your official account - not via a link)
  • Download some smartphone apps to keep mobile transactions safe

The email also contained a link to those particular smartphone apps as follows:

In the technological age we are in, there is no telling what people will do to try to gain your personal information!  Keep yourself and your information safe!!

This Month in Real Estate and our Monthly Update!!

Welcome to our monthly update!  This will give a breakdown of where we stand within our market as of the month of May of 2015 compared to 2014 during the same month!!

First things our "This Month in Real Estate" video put out every month by Keller Williams corporate!!  It will give you some information regarding how the real estate market is doing across the nation!

Now for the good part!  Here are our May 2015 board numbers as well as our Keller Williams Market Center numbers for Craven, Pamlico, and Jones Counties:
  • The Neuse River Region Board of Realtors (NRRBR) is up 10% compared to May of 2014
  • Keller Williams is up 22% compared to May of 2014
  • ONE out of every FOUR homes sold within the NRRBR is sold by a Keller Williams agent and 1/3 of those transactions are double-sided.  This means that a Keller Williams agent is representing both the seller and the buyer.
  • Keller Williams currently has 75 homes pending, which is more than the next three closest companies combined, which have 31, 28, and 14 homes pending!
Keller Williams is doing really well this year and we are not even half way through the year yet!  We can't wait to see what is in store for us for the rest of the year!!

Interested in buying or selling a home, we can help!!
