SB 473 - Under this act, the Missouri Real Estate Commission may cause a complaint to be filed with the Administrative Hearing Commission against any licensed or previously licensed real estate broker, salesperson, broker-salesperson, appraiser, or appraisal manager for advertisements or solicitations which include a name or team name that using the terms "realty", "brokerage", "company", or any other terms that can be construed to advertise a real estate company other than the licensee or a licensed business entity with whom the licensee is associated.

The Commission may consider the context of the advertisement or solicitation when determining whether there has been a violation of this act.

This act is identical to provisions in the truly agreed HB 476 (2021) and provisions in CCS/SS#2/SCS/HB 273 (2021) and is similar to HCS/HB 695 (2021), HB 1124 (2021), and provisions in HCS/SB 9 (2021) and HCS/SB 330 (2021).
