How Many Years is Your Real Estate License Issued For?

Real Estate License

Real estate license, was written by Elizabeth, for another website about a decade ago. That got me to thinking about when I first obtained my original license, in about 1980. That was almost four decades ago, so a really long time ago, lol. Enjoy the article. It is as relevant today as it was when written. Many people see my name tag, especially at the grocery store. They ask me about our licensing requirements. This post below beautifully illustrates the answers.

” I’m working on an article about real estate agents who leave the business or, for whatever reason, decide they can’t make it in real estate. I’m suspecting that last year’s fallout numbers will not even come close to this year’s attrition figures. Which in many ways is a good thing because it weeds out the ineffective and non-producers.

The word on the street often heard with regards to agent experience is “Don’t Hire an Agent With Less Than Five Years of Experience.” I’ve been wondering about that statement. I think you hear that more in California because licenses need to be renewed every four years. So if a buyer or seller is working with an agent who has five years’ experience, they can be relatively assured that the agent has been in the business long enough to at least renew a license.

But it makes me wonder about agents in other states. So here are two questions for those of you who care to answer: For how long is your real estate license active, meaning how many years before you need to renew it? And in which state(s) do you work?
