State Real Estate Agent Requirements

Pass a background criminal history check. Now this does NOT count out all felons, but it will make it harder. Your state Real Estate Commission, will be harsh if you have a felon that is recent and/or associated with fraud. You may have to hire an attorney to represent your case to the board. You will be finger printed and your finger prints will be sent to the FBI & State agencies. Think about it, you have access to peoples homes and valuable, so the government must be strict.

You must also be over the age of 18 years of age.
