I have no idea! I know that many states are no longer allowing 'real estate' or 'realty' in the name, among others.

Check with your state real estate commission before applying for a name with the Secretary of State.

Since I am not in the market to be looking for a team to represent me, I cannot answer that question. Most teams have the agents name paired with team or group. I feel no attraction.

I would go easy on the "tribe" label unless you are a First Nation settler or whatever is PC. Clan makes me think of Scots fighting for their homeland to free it from occupation like in Wallace in "Braveheart". Unit sounds like R2D2. Or Frank Zappa's Moon Unit child name. Didn't he have a kid named Dweezil too? Group sound big and impersonal. The Guy With The Hawaiian Shirt that looks cold... Team sounds like you have the real estate field covered nicely. Go team!

They need to do that here in NH has team names are out of control who work under a broker. Usually the big companies where it does look like a company within a company. The law says the brokerage name has to be displayed predominately but they are getting away with their name larger than the brokerage name???
