Broker Responsibility is a mandatory continuing education six-hour course for anyone who sponsors or is responsible for the acts of salespersons.
The course is written by the Texas Real Estate Commission and Texas A &M University’s Research Center and is updated every two years. The purpose of the course is to address the regulatory aspects of the management, operation, and supervision of a real estate brokerage firm in Texas.
The course includes the scope and authority of the broker, what the broker can authorize a salesperson to do or not do, the broker’s fiduciary duties, and additional topics such as handling trust funds, property management, advertising, record keeping and written policies. Instructor: Dawn Lavka
