TREC Compliance for KW Websites for Agents
Agents in Texas are required to display two specific links on their agent websites or face legal action. Ultimately, agents are responsible for managing their individual websites as they see fit, however we have included basic instructions to enable agents to be in compliance.


1. Log into mykw.kw.com.

2.On the myKW black menu bar, click Technology > KW Websites.




3. On the KW Websites page click the 'Go to my Website' button.

4. At the top of your website administration page, select Site Settings > Menu.




4. On the Menu Configuration page select the “Custom URL” from the drop down list under the current menu items.



5. Click Add.
 
Complete the fields that appear as follows:

Label: Enter 'Texas Real Estate Commission Consumer Protection Notice.'
URL: Add the link to which you want to direct the menu item. For the consumer protection notice the link will be

http://trec.texas.gov/pdf/forms/miscellaneous/cn1-2.pdf#search=%27consumer%20protection%20notice%27


Tooltip: (optional) Add text to be displayed when a visitor hovers over the menu item.




6. Repeat the above steps but change the label and the url to what is reflected below this.

Label: Enter 'Texas Real Estate Commission Information About Brokerage Services.'
URL: The blank form link for the information about brokerage services link will be

http://trec.texas.gov/pdf/contracts/iabs1-0.pdf#search=%27Information%20About%20Brokerage%20Services%27

However, for the link you use the form must be filled out. Download the blank form, and fill it out. Your Market Center Leadership team will be the best people to assist with this. After the form is filled out, it will need to be hosted in Google docs, Dropbox, or another website that a link can be pulled from.

*Note: your Market Center may host, or may consider hosting this form somewhere everyone in the market center can access it. Speak with them about this option.*

Add the hosted link that is filled out with the correct information in the URL box.

Tooltip: (optional) Add text to be displayed when a visitor hovers over the menu item.





6. Click the green 'save' button at the bottom of the page.
7. The new menu settings will take effect immediately on your website.





Following the above instructions will make the KW agent Placester site compliant for the Texas Real Estate Commission,
