FAQ: What documents are required for my WA real estate license application?

What documents are required for my WA real estate license application?

It is highly recommended to set up a SecureAccess Washington account to enable you to complete and submit your application online. Your broker license application should include the following components:

  • Completed application
  • Certified completion of pre-licensure education. This is available electronically once you completed and passed the 90-hour pre-license education requirement.
  • Criminal background report. The FBI and state police electronically provide their background reports as part of your online broker application.
  • Payment of $146.25 application fee.

If you have requested a waiver for any part of the state real estate license exam or the required pre-license coursework, your transcripts, copies of your degree, and certified license history should be a part of your application, as applicable.

If you have a history of convictions or criminal activity, you should provide an explanation of each conviction as well as any appropriate court records and details. This should be in addition to your criminal background report.
