The answer to this question is “yes” if a broker has delegated to you in writing the responsibility to assist the broker in complying with The Real Estate License Act and Commission Rules. When this delegation exists to supervise sales agents sponsored by the broker, your name must appear on the Information About Brokerage Services form as the “Licensed Supervisor of Sales Agent/Associate.” A sales agent or broker may act as a delegated supervisor.

Even with a delegated supervisor, the sponsoring broker does not relinquish overall responsibility for the supervision of license holders.

By supervising the work of a sales agent, you are helping the sponsoring broker comply with The Real Estate License Act and Commission Rules. Even with a delegated supervisor, the sponsoring broker does not relinquish overall responsibility for the supervision of license holders. This means it is not a defense when TREC receives a complaint about a transaction involving a sales agent to state that the broker’s responsibility was delegated to another license holder.

Section 535.2(e) of Commission Rules requires the sponsoring broker (or designated broker for a business entity) to provide the name of each delegated supervisor to the Commission. The current form, Notice of Delegation of Supervising License Holder, is available on our website, www.trec.texas.gov. You may also give the required notice to the Commission by logging into My License Online Services.

A delegated supervisor is required to take the six-hour Broker Responsibility course before license renewal, pursuant to Section 535.92(a)(3)(C) of the Rules.
