Obtaining a real estate license is an advantageous opportunity that opens new doors.
All laws and regulations involved with obtaining a license come from the New Jersey Real Estate Commission. Currently, all applicants who wish to receive their license as a broker, salesperson, or broker-salesperson must fulfill the educational requirements for licensure established by law and pass an examination conducted under the supervision of the REC. The REC is empowered to revoke licenses and/or otherwise sanction individuals and firms for violations of the license law.
According to the Commission, all applicants for licensure as a broker or salesperson must meet the standards for good character and fulfill the educational requirements for licensure established by law. In addition, the Commission is authorized to conduct investigations, hold hearings and revoke licenses and otherwise sanction individuals and firms for violations of the license law or its administrative rules.
The laws and mandates set forth by the New Jersey Real Estate Commission are separate from the regulations of the Realtor® organization, though all New Jersey Realtors® must first be licensed real estate professionals with the state.
