Section 16 does not prevent REALTORS ® from making general announcements that describe their services and the terms of their availability, even if some recipients have agency agreements or other exclusive relationships with another REALTOR®. General telephone advertising, generalized mailing or distribution to all interested parties in a geographic area or profession, business, club or other group is considered “general” for the purposes of this Standard. (Modified 1/04) The fact that an interested party has retained a IMMOBILIER AGENT® as an exclusive representative or exclusive broker in one or more previous transactions does not exclude other REALTORS® to seek the future activity of that interested party. (Modified 1/04) Section 16 does not prevent REALTORS ® from contacting another broker`s client to offer another type of real estate services or entering into a contract that has nothing to do with the type of services currently provided (for example. B, real estate management as opposed to brokerage activity) or offer the same type of service to real estate that are not covered by the exclusive contracts of other brokers. However, information received through a multiple listing service or other cooperation offer should not be used for customers of other REALTORS® who may submit such service offers. (Modified 1/04) First, phone calls or personal calls from property owners, which have been listed by a real estate shield, a collection of multiple listings or other information service as exclusively with another REALTOR®, and before providing interested parties with essential services (such as the letter of an offer to purchase or the submission of a CMA), REALTORS® interested parties will ask if they participate in an exclusive representation agreement. REALTORS® cannot knowingly provide relevant services related to a potential transaction to interested parties that are participations in exclusive representation agreements, unless the stakeholder representatives or their prospects are directed. (Adopted 1/93, modified 1/04) After a few years of experience in real estate sales, a seller may decide to have a license as a real estate agent (or principal/qualification broker) to own, manage or operate his own brokerage. In addition, some states allow university graduates to apply for a brokerage degree without years of experience. Higher education graduates fall into this category as soon as they have also taken the courses prescribed by the state. California allows licensed lawyers to become brokers if they pass the brokerage exam without having to take the courses required for an agent.

As a general rule, you need to have more course work and a state brokerage exam on real estate law. Once the brokerage license is received, a real estate agent may continue to work for another broker with a similar capacity to that of the past (often called an association broker or associate broker) or take responsibility for his own licensed brokers and other sellers (or brokers). Becoming a branch manager may or may not require a brokerage license. Some states allow licensed lawyers to become real estate agents without doing a review. In some countries, there are no “sellers” since all licensees are brokers. [9] The fact that an exclusivity agreement has been entered into with a REALTOR® does not prevent or prevent other REALTORRs® from entering into a similar agreement after the expiry of the previous agreement.
