2. Set Up Email Alias

Real Estate One provides an email alias to all of it’s sales associates. You may receive an, or an email address that can be used to alias your existing email address.

To set up an email alias, send an email request to

alias [at] realestateone [dot] com

that contains the email address that you would like the alias to forward to and what you would like your email address to be. It must be a combination of your first and last name or initials.

“An email alias is not an actual email account.”

An email alias is not an actual email account; it just forwards all messages to your existing email account. You will still need to have an actual email account to use an alias.
