When a Realtor transfers her license from one brokerage to another, there is a period of time in which she cannot practice real estate (essentially, while the transfer is in progress).
Some members have received incorrect information about when they can resume practicing.
Here is what DPOR says:
- You can only resume your practice when DPOR has approved your application.
You may have been told or taught that you can practice real estate when DPOR receives your transfer application. This is incorrect.
Once again: If you switch firms, your license does not take effect until the transfer has been approved by DPOR.
