Hi,

I'm a new agent and am trying to figure out some basic information to get out of the gate. I was able to obtain the domain name franksegarra.com. I'm thinking about using this url and frank@franksegarra.com as my email address verses the url and email from my broker. I think doing this will help me start to build my own brand.

I would appreciate any comments or opinions.

Thanks,
Frank

Is that permitted by you State Commission . . . . or by your Broker ?

It is. Other agents have done it in the office.

You checked with your state to make sure it is?? Because, from my experience, most other agents are wrong. So if you're saying that your own URL is permitted just because other agents are doing it then definitely take the time and check with your state.

And... if you are allowed it's a GREAT idea. You could always forward your URL to your broker site (or if they give you one), and if you ever switch brokers you just update where your URL forwards to.

I don't know Florida law but it is permissible in MN.
The number one agent in our Brokerage (1100 agents) uses his name.
www.krislindahl.com
If you go to the website then you see the Brokerage name is bigger than his name, per Commerce Dept. rules.

For the OP, this is an observation that should never be forgotten the whole time you do anything with real estate brokerage. The amount of mis-information propagated by the typical real estate agent is mind-numbing.

For what it's worth, I stopped being one of those through making big mistakes and having a willingness to learn from them.

I'll just add that all our naming conventions are approved by our legal counsel.
Ask the council at your Brokerage if you can use your name for your email and website.
