What brokers should know about having multiple offices
06/23/2016 | Author: TAR Legal Staff
Can a broker have multiple offices? If so, is there a limit on how many branch offices a broker can have?
A broker can have more than one branch office, and there is no limit on how many a broker can have. However, a broker must obtain a branch office license from the Texas Real Estate Commission for each location at which the broker or her agents meet with clients and customers to transact business.
To obtain a branch office license, brokers must complete an application and pay a $50 application fee for each office. Branch office licenses must also be renewed and expire when the main office license expires.
