This one’s for the n00bs. Here at Keller Williams Chervenic Realty, we have many new agents that are unfamiliar with the many important and useful features that eEdge and Market Leader have to offer. In this video, I show you how to get to the most useful elements of your KW tools. It’s not difficult. You simply need someone to show you how to find ‘em.
Watch this video to learn some shortcuts to get to KWLS, where you can brand your listings with your contact information that will be syndicated to all of the real estate websites…except Realtor.com (I have a video for that too.) Click here to watch the Branding in Realtor.com video. You will also learn the easy way to get to your eEdge Admin panel where you can manage your eEdge website, manage your email, and many other things. I’ll be adding detailed videos about all of these elements in the near future. For now, learn your way around. Explore things on your own. I’m sure you’ll have some questions. No problem. You know where to find me. I’m in Stow. In my shiny laboratory.
Do your branding. Take advantage of all of your tools. Take action. DO SOMETHING!
As always, please like, share, recommend, pin, and all of the other things that you can do in social media.
Realtor.com is one of the Internet’s popular real estate websites.
As a Keller Williams agent, you have access to a powerful tool. KWLS. KLWS through Listhub will syndicate your branded listings to the vast majority of the most visited real estate websites. Realtor.com, however, isn’t one the sites that KWLS will update. Realtor.com gets it’s data directly from MLS. So, if you’re branding your listings with KWLS you can duplicate that AND MORE in Realtor.com.
Keller Williams Chervenic Realty provides enhanced accounts for our agents at Realtor.com. The enhanced account allows a Real Estate agent to add additional information to their listings. Go to http://solutioncenter.realtor.com/ControlPanel/Login.aspx to log in to your account. You’ll need to choose the appropriate MLS. Those of us at KWCR and nearby areas in NortheasternOH will choose. . . um . . . NortheasternOH. Pick the one you use. Enter your license number and password and get to it. If you don’t have an account yet, you’ll need to jump through some hoops to get one. You’ll have to look up your NERDS number through the sign up process, or just get it from the mailing label on your copy of the NAR magazine that you might get. Whatever.
Make sure that your profile is filled out as accurately as possible. WRITE A SHORT BIO. Upload your professional photo. Verify the data. Follow along with the video. . . use the pause button if you want to. Replay as needed. Of course, you should watch in one of the higher resolutions. Click the little gear in the lower right corner and choose the highest resolution. You’ll be able to see a more vivid video. On top of that, you should watch my videos in ‘full screen’ just click the button at the lower right. It’s kind of a picture frame looking symbol.

In my last post, I showed you how to brand your listing photos using Microsoft Office’s Publisher program. Well, I heard from some of you that you don’t use Publisher. I don’t use Publisher myself. I prefer a solid image editor. Photoshop is my go-to image editing program – but Photoshop is expensive and can be complicated. Today, I’m going to turn you on to a FREE online image editing website that works much like Photoshop. It’s Pixlr.com, and you can learn to use it quite easily. Watch my video below to learn how to brand your listing photos.
Branding your listing photos can give you an edge against the competition. Do you have a problem with getting both sides of the deal with your listings? I didn’t think so. Watch the video below to get a clue. If you use Publisher and haven’t watched my video tutorial about how to use Publisher to brand your photos, you can click the link to watch it.
Here’s my video tutorial about Pixlr.com. For best results, click the ‘Full Screen’ symbol at the bottom right of the player and click the little gear symbol and choose 720p for High Resolution. . . and don’t forget to subscribe to my YouTube channel!

The Keller Williams Listing Service, that we lovingly know as KWLS, is a valuable tool for marketing your listings. Using the KWLS, you can add your contact information to your listings. The tweaks that you make in KWLS will be distributed to most of the important Real Estate websites. The only major site that doesn’t update from KWLS is Realtor.com. That doesn’t mean that you can’t brand in Realtor.com, you just have to do it manually. I urge you to read my previous article Branding Your Listings in KWLS for an easy lesson in using KWLS for branding your listings.
This tutorial shows you how to use Microsoft Office Publisher to add a logo and your contact information to your listing photos. It’s easy to do and is a great alternative to the expensive and complicated Photoshop image editor. I hope that you make the most of this training. To borrow a phrase. . . JUST DO IT!
