VII. Brokerage Office Business Practices

Creating Team Names

A group of licensees, who are engaged by the same brokerage and who work together to provide real estate services, may ask RECBC to approve a team name which may be used in advertising. RECBC will not approve a name which might give the impression of being an incorporated company or a real estate brokerage. The team name must be approved by RECBC before it is used in any form of real estate advertising. Licensees wishing to create a team must first provide the following information to the RECBC’s Licensing Department:

  • the proposed name of the team;
  • the names of all related licensees who will be members of the team; and
  • the names of all unlicensed people who will be working directly as part of the team.
