BRE Publishes an Advisory to Agents Regarding the Use of “DRE” in Disclosure Materials

Effective July 1, 2013, the California Department of Real Estate became the Bureau of Real Estate (“BRE”).  One issue that has arisen is whether licensees need to update their marketing materials (i.e. business cards, advertisements, etc.) to change their DRE license number to refer to the BRE.  The BRE has issued an advisory recommending that on or after July 1, 2013, licensees use “BRE” and no longer use DRE.  However, the BRE has agreed not to cite licensees solely based on the use of solicitation materials that reference the DRE.  However, it is recommended that licensees use reasonable effort to use up their existing business cards and marketing materials and change to the BRE as soon as practicable.
