Rules Tip

Branding is not allowed on photos or virtual tours. That means no names, contact info (digital or otherwise), URLs and/or links, QR codes, office logos, for sale signs, etc. Photos and virtual tours are included in emails of properties send out of connectMLS and IDX feeds, so they can't include anything identifying the listing agent/broker to potential cooperating agent's/brokers' clients.
