An applicant for a broker license must meet all requirements for licensure before submitting an application to the Department. Successful broker license exam candidates will be provided an Associate Broker License Application with their passing score notification. Other types of broker license applications (individual, LLC, Corporation, Partnership, etc.) can be found on our Forms & Publications page. An application must verify required real estate experience and successful completion of all required education. Some applicants will be required to provide other documentation depending upon their background.
An individual may be licensed as either an Individual Broker, which denotes operation as a sole proprietorship, or as an Associate Broker, an individual who qualifies as a broker but who is licensed to a broker or another broker entity type, LLC, partnership, corporation broker. If Individual Brokers are using a business name (e.g., John Doe d.b.a. Doe Realty), an assumed name certificate must be obtained from the county clerks office and filed with the application. An Associate Broker cannot operate with an assumed name. If the brokers license will be held by an entity, at least one owner or principal must apply for an associates brokers license to that broker.
