Oregon demands a license to be able to conduct professional real estate activity within the state. Oregon’s entry level license it the Real Estate Broker license. Oregon does not have a Salesperson license. Applicants for licensure must accomplish these ten steps:
Enroll in an Agency approved pre license course;
Submit your license program on the Agency sometime before completion of your coursework;
Complete your approved pre-license training course;
Confirm along with your course provider that you have submitted your license by giving your provider your Agency ID number; Your course provider will upload your electronic eligibility file and then needed private info to PSI, the licensing exam proctor.
Pay and schedule for your licensing examination using the PSI web site;
Sit for the licensing exam at the PSI location you decide on and pass your examination;
At the PSI test facility, pay for fingerprinting as well as the needed background check;
PSI is going to send your fingerprints electronically for the criminal background check; and Print the license of yours at the Agency web site once these items are completed by you.
Your approved pre licensing course will contain 7 topics of study:
Real Estate Law;
Finance; and Property Management.
The applicant’s course provider must be certified by the Oregon Higher Education Coordinating Commission as a profession School and have approved vocational instructors to tell the course.
Oregon-approved courses can be shipped in a classroom, by correspondence, or over the Internet. Internet as well as correspondence facilities should have their course delivery method approved by the Association of Property License Law Officials (ARELLO).
The Agency may argue your background check you have:
had a criminal conviction;
had a state license revoked or perhaps suspended;
been disciplined by an experienced body;
filed for bankruptcy;
fallen behind on kid support payments, or have been involved in civil legal actions that would give the impression you are less than honest.
Oregon grants licenses on a case-by-case basis. This simply means that applicants will be granted a chance to explain any negative background check findings.
Oregon has licensing agreements with Alabama, Alberta, Colorado, Georgia, Idaho, Montana, Nebraska, South Dakota and Wyoming. If you keep a resident real estate license from one of these jurisdictions, you must contact the Oregon Real Estate Agency for special conditions and information about obtaining an Oregon real estate agent license. In most instances, you’ll still be needed to complete the Oregon educational requirement, although, you could collect waiver on the national element of the state licensing exam.
