+Kevin Vitali of EXIT Group One Real Estate explains the illusion many buyers have that they will save money if they buy a home with only the listing (seller) agent involved. Example: You meet the agent at an open house.
Do you think you'll save money?
Read the things you give up when you are not represented by your own agent.

Great additional resources and a lot of common sense advice you've never thought of and won't unless you have good representation on your side. A must read if you are considering your first home purchase.

Great work here +Kevin Vitali. Important for any buyer considering a purchase.

h/t to +Wendy Weir - she shares the best posts! Thank you Wendy!

I've been waiting for someone, anyone to curb the extremists influence on social media. Seems +YouTube is taking the problem head on by redirecting keyword searches to truths about the search rather than only the radical point of view. Bravo Youtube, +Jigsaw and +Moonshot CVE for creating the Redirect Method
h/t +Peggy K for the share
YouTube redirecting searches for violent extremist videos to content debunking recruiting narratives

Over the past years, +Jigsaw partnered with +Moonshot CVE to conduct extensive research to understand how extremist groups leverage technology to spread their message and recruit new members. From there, they created the Redirect Method, which uses curated video content to redirect people away from violent extremist propaganda and steer them toward video content that confronts extremist messages and debunks its mythology. Today, YouTube is rolling out a feature using the model proven by the Redirect Method: when people search for certain keywords on YouTube, we will display a playlist of videos debunking violent extremist recruiting narratives.

Do people you don't know try to contact you via Hangouts? Annoying isn't it. Here's how to stop some of the unwanted attention.
+Peggy K's post and video will help make your life much easier here on +Google+. Thanks a bunch Peggy!

Control who can contact you through Google Hangouts

If you only want people you know to contact you through Hangouts, set it so that people with your Google Account email, phone number, or in a particular Google+ Circle can contact you directly, and no one else can send you an invite.

If you want anyone to easily converse with you on Hangouts, you can set it so everyone can start a Hangout conversation with you directly.

Or if you want something in-between, set it so that people must send you an invitation.

to change the settings:

1. Sign in to Hangouts at, the Chrome Hangouts Extension, Gmail, or in the mobile app.

2. Open the Settings

3. Select "Customize Invite Settings"

4. Select "Custom"

5. Set who can contact you or invite you:
> If they have your Google account phone number
> If they have your Google account email address
> If they are in a particular Google+ Circle
> Everyone else

Watch the videos to see how to do that:
