The Texas Real estate Commission adopted rules that change the requirements to obtain a real estate broker license in the state of Texas.
The Commission approved these changes to strengthen the qualifications for becoming a broker in the state of Texas. In the past, in addition to certain education and examination requirements, two years of “active” status as a sales agent were needed to qualify for a broker license, regardless of whether the sales agent had gained any actual experience during the two year period.
A point system will be used to quantify active experience in real estate transactions. Broker applicants will be required to document that they have obtained at least 3,600 points of active experience with evidence of specific transactions and a verification statement from the applicant’s sponsoring broker at the time the experience was earned .A complete explanation of the point system can be found on the TREC Commission website.
