Legal Question

Asked on: 6/27/13, 12:47 pm

I am a licensed California real estate broker. I recently left the company I was working for and want to start selling properties on my own. I have a standard purchase and listing agreement form which meets DRE requirements. I have heard from broker friends, but cannot find documentation anywhere else, that even with a brokerís license I cannot sell property in my own name but would have to create a corporation, or fictitious business name. Is that true? I am about to sign up a few listings and was planning on just putting my DRE license number and contact information rather than anything else. Does that suffice?
