law: DRE commissioner's regulation 2773 are you complying? - 10/29/12 03:15 PM
DON'T MISS THE SHOW!
Just a quick reminder to catch our internet radio show tomorrow - The Vondran Legal Hour - where we will be discussing regulation 2773 and a general overview of the requirements for real estate licensees.  If you have not heard about the law, it was passed in 2009, and requires real estate licensees to disclosure their real estate license number on certain print advertising.  I have seen a general lack of compliance on this so just thought I would touch on the topic briefly.
You can access the link to the DRE Advertising Regulation 2773 show here.
