Florida State Reciprocity

Real estate commissions and boards across the country are adopting policies for a real estate agent in one state to more easily become licensed in another state.

Florida has mutual recognition agreements with seven states: Alabama, Arkansas, Connecticut, Georgia, Illinois, Mississippi and Nebraska. Mutual recognition allows out-of-state licensees to apply as a sales associate or broker in Florida exempting them from the pre-license education requirement.

They are still required, however, to take the 40-question Florida Laws section of the state exam.

Florida Real Estate Continuing Education (CE) and License Renewal Requirements:

  • Real estate professionals in Florida need to renew their licenses by March 31st or September 30, every 2 years. 
  • The renewal date that applies to you depends on when you initially took your licensing exam and should be indicated on your real estate license. By this date, licensees need to complete 14 hours of real estate CE, consiting of:
    • 8 hours of specialty credit
    • 3 hours dedicated to an update of Florida laws
    • 3 hours of an ethics and business practices course 
    • These courses may be conducted in a classroom or via a distance education provider
