Receive emergency updates from Teton County

The Gillespie Real Estate Team has recently learned about a message alert system called NIXLE through Teton County Emergency Management.  This system allows local emergency services in Teton County to send an immediate email or text message to subscribers to the system.  This enables you to know firsthand what is going on in the valley whether it’s an accident, closure on Teton Pass or an earthquake.

There are two ways you can subscribe to the NIXLE system:

1. Visit and click “sign in here” in the upper right corner, then click “register now for free”. (Tip: If your actual address won’t register, just use the intersection of N Cache and W Broadway as your address.)

2. Text your zip code to 888777 from your cell phone. If you do this, you will only receive text message alerts. If you follow the weblink in the text message, you can access more detailed information which is included in the email alerts.

NIXLE is a completely free service that costs nothing for subscribers or for taxpayers. We hope you will find this service useful and please feel free to forward this message to friends, family and coworkers who also may wish to receive timely emergency information via text message and/or email.

(Note: Local emergency services to not have access to your information, as it is held on a private and secure server managed by the National Law Enforcement Telecommunications System.)

Cool information. If you are a seller this is very important information. Jackson Hole real estate is no longer a “local” market and to be honest it has not been one for 10 years. Here at Sotheby’s – Jackson Hole Brokerage we have the best agents with the most experience yet we are all local! Our competition will talk about local company with some exposure to the nation and international clients but no one can reach the customer base that Sotheby’s International Realty can. Christy and I feel honored to be here and we utilize the skills, the knowledge and the history many of the agents at Sotheby’s have to offer.
