Licensee Name Required in Real Estate Advertisements in Maryland
A real estate licensee may not use any name in any advertisement except the name which appears on the wall license or pocket card. All advertisements MUST include a first name and a last name. If a licensee wishes to use a nickname as a first name, the licensee may apply to the Maryland Real Estate Commission to trade under a nickname other than the full legal of the licensee.
For example, my name is Calvin Roy Kelley. I go by Roy and had to apply to trade as Roy Kelley.
Licensees need to be careful with the use of their name in blog signatures.
