Telephone Numbers in Advertising - Real Estate Commission

The Maryland Real Estate Commission requires associate brokers and salespersons who use an individual telephone number or e-mail address in their advertising to also include in the advertisement the identified telephone number of the broker or branch office manager. Consumers must be able to reach your broker or branch office manager directly without going through you or your staff. (Phone menu options are acceptable.)

The Commission is concerned that members of the public may be unaware of how to register any questions or concerns that may arise in their dealings with a particular associate broker or salesperson. The Commissioners believe that many issues can be resolved with the assistance of the broker or branch office manager, and that this requirement will make it easier for that assistance to be obtained.
