To qualify for an individual real estate broker license, an applicant must:
- Be at least 18 years of age
- Be a United States citizen, a non-citizen national or a qualified alien under federal law, or have a lawful presence in the U.S. and be authorized to work in the U.S. in the real estate brokerage field. [Note: A holder of a U.S. Permanent Resident Card (“Green Card”) is a “qualified alien.” Work authorization in the U.S. for most other aliens requires a U.S. immigration visa (rather than a visitor visa) and/or an Employment Authorization Document from the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service that permits work in the real estate brokerage field.];
- Have a Social Security Number
- Satisfy the Commission that the applicant possesses the requisite character for licensure. You’ll prove this by submitting a background check with your application. Click here for more information on the Character and Fitness review.
