I know that Texas Real Estate Commission rules require a broker to maintain written policies and procedures for the broker’s sponsored salespersons. I recently got my broker’s license, but I don’t sponsor any agents. Am I still required to have a manual?
No. Only a broker who sponsors salespeople or is a designated broker for a business entity must maintain up-to-date written policies and procedures. A broker who sponsors salespeople is subject to this rule regardless of how long the broker sponsors the salespeople. A broker who is the designated broker for a business entity is subject to this rule whether or not the business entity sponsors salespeople.
