FAQ: How can I get my CO real estate license through reciprocity?

How can I get my CO real estate license through reciprocity?

How to earn a Colorado real estate broker license through reciprocity depends on your license status and how many years of experience you have as an active real estate salesperson.

If your license in your other state is currently active and has been for at least two years, you will need to pass the state portion of the Colorado real estate broker exam, complete the fingerprint background check, and submit a certified license history that is dated to within 90 days of your broker application. If you have at least two years of active experience, you can qualify for an independent or employing broker license. If you have less than two years of active experience, you will qualify for the associate broker license.

If your license has expired or if you have held a license for less than two years in another jurisdiction, you will need to submit proof of education. For a real estate salesperson, you need to complete 120 hours of education, which is broken down into the specific requirements here. You also need to pass the national and state portion of the Colorado real estate broker’s exam, complete a fingerprint background check, and provide your certified license history dated within 90 days of your application.

As someone with less than two years of active experience as a real estate salesperson or broker, you'll qualify for Colorado's associate broker credential.
