Nev. Admin. Code § 645.610 - Restrictions on advertising; use of name under which licensee is licensed

1. In addition to satisfying the requirements set forth in NRS 645.315:
(a) An advertisement of the services of a licensee for which a license is required under chapter 645 of NRS must not be false or misleading.
(b) Except as otherwise provided in this paragraph, a licensee shall not use his or her name or telephone number or the name or telephone number of another licensee of the brokerage firm with which the licensee is associated in any advertisement which contains the words "for sale by owner," "for lease by owner" or similar words. A licensee may use his or her name or telephone number in an advertisement for property if the licensee has an ownership interest in the advertised property and the advertisement contains:
(1) If the licensee is a real estate broker, the words "for sale by owner-broker," "for lease by owner-broker" or substantially similar words; or
(2) If the licensee is an agent, the words "for sale by owner-agent," "for lease by owner-agent" or substantially similar words.
(c) The name of a brokerage firm under which a real estate broker does business or with which a real estate broker-salesperson or salesperson is associated must be clearly identified with prominence in any advertisement. In determining whether the name of the brokerage firm is identified with prominence, the Division shall consider, without limitation, the style, size and color of the type or font used and the location of the name of the brokerage firm as it appears in the advertisement.
(d) A licensee shall not publish or cause to be published any advertisement or place any sign that makes any reference to the availability of a specific property which is exclusively listed for sale by another broker unless the licensee obtains the prior written consent of the broker with whom the property is listed. Such consent must not be given or withheld by the listing broker without the knowledge of the owner of the property.
(e) Except as otherwise provided in this paragraph, a licensee shall, in a conspicuous way, include his or her license number in any advertisements. A licensee may, but is not required to, include any:
(1) Preceding zeros at the beginning of the license number; or
(2) Letters after the period following the license number.
2. If advertising under the name of a franchise, a broker shall incorporate in a conspicuous way in the advertisement the real, fictitious or corporate name under which the broker is licensed to engage in business and an acknowledgment that each office is independently owned and operated.
3. In addition to the provisions of paragraph (a) of subsection 1, a licensee who represents a seller or lessor under an exclusive agency listing agreement or an exclusive right to sell or lease listing agreement shall not advertise any property that is subject to the agreement as "for sale by owner" or otherwise mislead a person into believing that the licensee does not represent the seller or lessor.
4. As used in this section, "advertisement" includes, without limitation:
(a) Any unsolicited printed media, sales literature, brochures or flyers and any broadcast media made by radio, television or electronic means, including, without limitation, by unsolicited electronic mail and social media, the Internet, billboards and signs; and
(b) Business cards, stationery, forms and other documents used in a real estate transaction.
