Do I Need a Real Estate License to Practice Business Brokerage?
This is the number one question we receive. Many states do require a Real Estate License to practice Business Brokerage. Every state requires an individual have a Real Estate License if real property is being transferred. The big question is the transfer of a lease for the real property and the need for a Real Estate License. Every state has a Real Estate Commission or Division of the State Government that establishes the laws and Requirements for Licensure in that state. For your convenience, (link below) we have a contact list for each state. Please contact your state’s Real Estate Commission to Inquire about all licensure requirements. Faculty and Staff of the School of Business Brokerage™ cannot make the determination of what licensure is required in any state.
