License Requirements

DBPR Emergency Order - Real Estate License Renewal Extension - The Department of Business and Professional Regulations (DBPR) has issued an Emergency Order extending the deadline for REALTORS® to renew their real estate license by 30 days. This gives REALTORS® the ability to take some extra time before filing their renewal with the state. Please note that this is an extension, NOT a waiver. The DBPR Emergency Order can be viewed HERE.
