Broker Responsibilities: Office Sign

  • At each office of the broker, a sign must be erected and maintained with the business name of the broker and that states he is a real estate broker (Ohio Revised Code Section 4735.16(A)).
  • If the words “Realty”, “Real Estate”, or the trade name “REALTOR” or the ® trademark appear on the sign or in the broker’s business name, the Division considers that to be sufficient to meet the duty of identifying the broker as a real estate broker on the office sign.
  • There are no regulations in Ohio law which mandate the size of the office sign.
