Dear Agents, as a PA Licensee, it is your responsibility to comply with the Penna. Code in association with Printed, airtime, electronic or any other form of media or advertising for your business and marketing. It is our office policy that you assume the responsibility to have your cards, advertising and marketing approved by me or the R.E. Commission. If you do not, and you are cited for non-compliance you will be indemnifying and reimbursing KW Realty Midway for any fees and costs for your violations. This would result in a withholding of collecting any such fees from your compensation or commission.
The PA Code REQUIRES you to List our office Brokerage name and phone number along with your name as the agent on any form of advertisement. It must be of equal or larger size than your agent name and number.
Citations by the commission, if charged, start at $250-500.00 for a 1st time offense, and increase by any further citations to $750.00 then $1,000.00 up to $10,000 maximum.Fines are commensurate with the citations.
Any citations charged to you are logged as”disciplinary history” on your license. What that means is that the Department of the State has to report this to ancillary companies such as Errors and omissions and agencies such as Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. This could not only cause your office fees to increase, but your ability to practice real estate could be limited, thus effecting your potential income.
As a fellow real estate agent who cares about your success and understands how challenging it can be to compete in our industry, I also want to protect you against any damages or unnecessary costs that could be avoided.
I welcome you to contact me with any further questions and to reach out to me should you need assistance prior to making any marketing or advertising decisions.
