Broker Information

What does it mean to be a broker?

What Is a Broker?

A person who acts as an intermediary between sellers and buyers of real estate/real property and attempts to find sellers who wish to sell and buyers who wish to buy. In the United States, the relationship was originally established by reference to the English common law of agency, with the broker having a fiduciary relationship with his clients.

GDWCAR Policy states that staff will not offer Broker Advice to agents, they will be referred back to their brokers.

Texas REALTORS® Model Brokerage Policies and Procedures Manual

This manual, available to members for $99.99 plus tax, gives brokerages instant compliance with TREC requirements to maintain written policies and procedures.

My Responsibilities

Ensuring all licensees are accurate on the roster with the association

It is your responsibility to ensure that you are monitoring the licensees in your office regularly. Make sure their license is current by checking at this site.

If you are not current with this task you may be charged REALTOR® dues and MLS Fees for licensees that are no longer under your supervision. If these items do not get paid you are subject to being deactivated as a REALTOR® and in the MLS. This would result in your entire office being unable to practice.

Texas REALTORS® Broker Responsibility Guide

Texas REALTORS® has compiled a guide to highlight statutes and rules that need to be addressed in a broker’s office policy manual. Using the guide will give brokers a frame of reference and an outline from which to base their written office policy manuals.
