The Texas Real Estate Commission has rules about the way license holders can provide the Information About Brokerage Services form in emails or on websites. Here’s one way to provide the form link once it’s been completed with your information:

  1. Fill out the blank IABS form with the appropriate information.
  2. Save the form to your computer.
  3. Upload the PDF to a cloud-based service, such as Dropbox, Google Drive, or Microsoft OneDrive.
  4. Use the cloud-based service to create a hyperlink to provide access to the PDF via the Internet. For example, on the Dropbox website, click the Share button next to the file and copy the link that Dropbox generates.  
  5. Post that link in your email and any business website or on any other social media outlet.

Does it meet the criteria?
The link to the form on your business website must meet three criteria:

  • It must say Texas Real Estate Commission Information About Brokerage Services,
  • The linked text must be in at least 10-point font, and
  • The link must be in a readily noticeable place on your home page.
