However, such broker-salespersons are still licensed by the Department of Real Estate (DRE) as real estate brokers. Only by written agreement with another broker are they acting as broker-salespersons. Section 2726 of the Commissioner’s Regulations requires that “… every real estate broker shall have a written agreement with each of his salesmen, whether licensed as a salesman or as a broker under a broker-salesman arrangement.” Even though a broker may act as a broker-salesperson in a relationship with another broker, for Department of Real Estate licensing and record-keeping purposes the licensee is still a broker. This means that a broker-salesperson should still communicate with DRE using only appropriate broker forms and applications. :KHQ XVLQJ WKH SURSHU EURNHU IRUPV QR UHIHUHQFH VKRXOG EH PDGH WR WKH name RU ¿FWLWLRXV QDPH of the broker for whom the broker-salesperson works. That type of information is irrelevant as there is no reference in the DRE records that such a working relationship exists. It is also imperative that a broker-salesperson speak for himself or herself, meaning that any requests for record changes be made by the broker-salesperson and not by anyone else on his or her behalf. A broker-salesperson should never use salesperson forms or applications when renewing or making changes to a broker record. Doing so will cause delays in processing whatever is requested. Remember — a broker is always a broker regardless of any working relationship that may exist with another broker.
