We Must Have a Copy of Your License

The business office must have a copy of your license on file. This is a DRE mandatory requirement. A black & white copy will suffice. If you haven't done so already, please ensure that we receive a copy of your original or renewed license certificate as soon as possible. 

Every time you renew your license, you are required by the DRE to send us this current version showing your new expiration date and designating Realty Benefit as your broker affiliation.

Important: TDS and AVID Disclosures!

TDS is required by the DRE unless the real estate transaction is an REO, Probate or Trust sale - in such case, it will be exempt. It's the Listing Agent's responsibility to confirm exemption and ensure exempt status is indicated on all appropriate sections of the TDS. The agents and the buyer must still acknowledge and sign-off on page 3 of the TDS.

An AVID is required by Realty Benefit on every transaction. It does not matter whether the transaction is an REO, Probate, Trust or Standard sale - ALL Realty Benefit agents must complete an AVID in ALL cases. In other words, whether you are the Listing Agent or Selling Agent, you must fill out your own AVID. You must not rely on the other agent's AVID to satisfy this requirement.

Training & Education: Webinars & Face-to-Face Classes 

There are a host of webinars and face-to-face classes provided through O.C.A.R. and C.A.R. We strongly recommend that you periodically review the O.C.A.R. and C.A.R. websites to locate additional resources under the sub-category Education. You can also access many of these resources on the Agent Support website under Training & Education.

Don't Forget About C.A.R. Legal Hotline 

The C.A.R. Legal Hotline offers members the incredible benefit of receiving free confidential legal advice over the telephone on a vast array of real-estate related topics such as contract interpretation, arbitration, litigation, tax issues, commission disputes, disclosure requirements, fair housing issues, laws governing homeowners' associations, and so on. Click here and then go to the Legal Hotline Access link. C.A.R. login required.
