How to Designate My Email Address as Private

Did you know that licensees must provide an email address/phone number to the Commission? Are you aware that you can designate your email address/phone number as private?

Commission Rule 58A. 0103 requires all licensees to notify the Commission of any changes to their email addresses/phone numbers within 10 days of the change.  This applies to provisional and full brokers, whether on active or inactive status.

Although brokers must provide their email addresses/phone numbers to the Commission per Rule 58A .0103, a broker may designate their email address as private. To designate an email address as private in your license record, you should complete the following steps:

  1. Go to the Commission website (
  2. Scroll down to Licensees.
  3. Select Licensee Login.
  4. Enter your license number and PIN (the last four digits of your social security number unless you have changed it).
  5. Select View/Update Your License Record.

6. Scroll down to Other Contact Information (see screenshot below)

7. Delete any entries in the boxes next to Public Phone and Public Email to mark your email address and/or phone number as private.

8. Add your information in the Private Phone and Private Email sections.

9. Select the submit button.


NOTE: If an email/phone number is designated as private, the North Carolina Real Estate Commission will not share your information, unless it is required under federal law or valid subpoena.
