Differences Between Your TREC Records and MetroTex Membership Records

We receive emails and calls every day about changes to brokerage sponsorship, email addresses, and phone numbers. Some members tell us they have updated that information with the Texas Real Estate Commission (TREC) so why don’t we have it? TREC is the state licensing entity and MetroTex and the MLS are REALTOR® entities. It is a REALTOR® member’s responsibility to update both TREC and MetroTex since neither communicates with the other on changes automatically. TREC does not provide information to us and we don’t provide information to them.

Obviously, sponsorship changes must be reported and updated with TREC first and then the new brokerage will need to supply our membership department with a Status Change Form to notify us of their new sponsorship so your REALTOR® membership records can be updated. Once our membership record is updated, the information is automatically updated to our MLS, Texas REALTORS® and the National Association of REALTORS®.

Email or phone number changes to your individual REALTOR® membership record may be done through your MetroTex Account Access. You can log into your MetroTex Account Access by visiting MyMetroTex.com and select “Account Access” at the top of the page. Your user ID is the same as your MLS user ID: your license number with a zero added as the first digit. Once the information is updated under your Account Access, then that information transmits to the MLS.

If you have any questions related to membership changes, please contact the Membership Department at membership@dfwre.com.
