2nd Email Request for Change in Social Media Username

(member’s email address)

RE: Incorrect Use of the Term REALTOR® - 2nd Request


I wrote you a few weeks ago regarding the use of the term REALTOR® in a username for your Twitter/Facebook page. Did you have any questions regarding the use of the REALTOR® marks? Please note that the username is still active and we have not had any response from you regarding this issue. The Association requests that you stop all use of the username.

We request that you promptly provide us with your assurance that you will comply with this request.
