Below is the login for the Oregon First Knowledge Compendium, or KC. This is where you can search for articles on how to write an oil tank decommissioning clause so it properly protects your buyers, or find Oregon First logo files and flyer templates, or download pamphlets to give your seller clients to help them comply with Oregon’s smoke or carbon monoxide detector laws, etc. It’s a treasure trove of information for all kinds of situations that come up in our industry.
Below is the link to access the leads you receive from Oregon First, plus the accounts of your clients and customers who’ve signed up with you to receive updates of properties as they come on the market. Be sure to toggle to Team Member in the top box.
Below is the link to access the FREE digital signature program that all Oregon First agents get when they sign up with us. It benefits you and your clients by making it fast and easy for them to sign documents. It’s online, so it can be used anywhere, from any computer or mobile device.
Oregon First has created a Google Group for all our agents so they can communicate easily with each other. We call it havesandwants. This is where you can learn from, and share knowledge with, your fellow agents. Get referrals to good electricians, mortgage brokers, movers, inspectors, etc. Offer to hold someone’s listing open for them. Find out what other people’s experiences were with a particular auction site or bank in a short sale situation.
- Post to havesandwants by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
- Search the havesandwants database HERE
There are a few rules to remember when using havesandwants:
- You log in with your Oregon First email account, Gmail, or a personal Google account for the email address you use with havesandwants.
- When you answer someone’s question, remember to use “Reply All”. That way your information gets sent back to havesandwants and helps grow our database of agent knowledge.
- Please don’t post about charities or school events. We want to keep this about the real estate business, only.
- Whether you are looking for a vendor or recommending one, be sure to include the general location where the vendor works.
Your Oregon First Email Account
Oregon First gives all our agents their own personalized Oregon First email address. The address is always oregonfirst.com/firstnamelastname. There is no charge for this service, and agents are advised to keep separate email addresses for personal and business matters.
- Check your email at mail.oregonfirst.com.
- If you need help setting up your company email account on your device, we’re here for you! Call or email any member of our Agent Services Team.
Transaction Management Platform
Oregon First uses an online transaction management system that allows you to access all your files from any computer. Since it contains a free digital signature function, your transactions can be completely paper-free, depending on the comfort level of your clients. This system also automates including emails and texts into the official file, and keeps track of all file related discussions you have with your managing broker.
