Earning An NJ Real Estate Sales License

After successfully completing the course and passing the examination, the applicant must apply for a license through a sponsoring real estate broker. The New Jersey Real Estate Commission must also be satisfied as to the applicant’s honesty, trustworthiness, character and integrity.

Applicants who have been convicted of a crime, or who currently are on parole or probation, may be denied the ability to apply for a real estate license.

Persons who are citizens of New Jersey and who qualify as disabled veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces may be able to obtain waivers of the license education and experience requirements. Call the Commission’s Education Waiver Section at 609-292-7272, Ext. 50137, for details.

New Jersey does not have license reciprocity with any state.
