Since you can't use it in a web address, I really doubt you can use it in a phone number (though I totally dig what you're going for there).  Your best bet is to go to the source and ask the NAR (or check out their website for a listing of what is and is not allowed).  Good luck, would love to know the result.

No.  NAR protects everything remotely related to the word "realtor".

My question to you is...

Why the heck would you want something that makes you one of the Zillions of realtors out there? 

I have been in business for more than 25 years and have never referred to myself as a realtor or marketed anything with that title.

You can have the phone number (NAR doesn't own the phone companies), but if you advertise it with the name REALTOR, you will get a Cease and Desist letter from NAR... even if you are a member.
