I am a salesperson. Can I advertise under my broker’s assumed name that includes my name? (updated Jan. 17, 2014)

Yes, if you also include in the advertisement either your broker’s name or another assumed name of your broker that does not include a salesperson’s name. Otherwise, the advertisement would imply that the salesperson is the person responsible for the operation of a real estate business.
