Advertising Requirements. The language in this rule regarding name identification by licensees in advertising will now require licensees who want to use a nickname, initials, middle name or maiden name to register that name with the Division. This will be required in order for licensees to advertise in any name that is different than the licensee’s name as it appears on their license, and will include even common nicknames or derivatives of a first name such as Dave, Jim, Pat, Chris, Debbie, etc. It will also allow for use of more unusual nicknames such as Buzz, Skip, Buffy, etc. The Division is in the process of finalizing a form to register such names. REALTORS will be notified and provided a link to this form as soon as it is available. The Division has indicated that licensees will be given ample time to comply with this new registration process.
