Agents… Keep Your Pocket Card Handy

QuestionDid You Know . . . . 

. . . the 2012 Virginia General Assembly approved House Bill 609 that was then signed by the Governor and became effective July 1, 2012?

Department of Professional and Occupational Regulation (DPOR); duties of regulatory boards.  Requires a licensee of a regulatory board within the Department of Professional and Occupational Regulation to furnish, upon the request of a person to whom the licensee is providing or offering to provide service, satisfactory proof that the licensee (i) is duly licensed, certified, or registered and (ii) has obtained any required bond or insurance to engage in his profession or occupation. The bill defines the term licensee “regulant” and contains technical amendments.

In other words, you must keep your current Virginia Real Estate License pocket card with you at all times and show it upon request to any client, customer, or prospect.
