Calif. Business and Professions Code §10159.7
Amended by S.B. 710
Effective date: August 29, 2016

On signs and advertisements requiring a responsible broker’s identity, a California Bureau of Real Estate (CalBRE) licensee may identify a responsible broker by the:

  • broker’s name under which they are licensed and do business; or
  • both the broker’s name and CalBRE license number.

Editor’s note — This law fixes an error made by the legislature which indicated both the responsible broker’s name and CalBRE license number were required on all advertisements using a fictitious business name or team name. This clarification means signs already printed with just the responsible broker’s licensed name do not need to be reprinted to include the responsible broker’s CalBRE license number.

However, A.B. 1650 expands the type of advertisements requiring identification of the responsible broker, beginning January 1, 2018.
