I am licensed in another state and wish to become licensed in Virginia. Can I apply through reciprocity?

Yes.  Applicants for a salesperson license must (1) pass the State portion of the examination, (2) submit verification of completion of a 60 hour course called “Principles of Real Estate” and (3) submit letters of certification from other jurisdictions where licensed.  Also, in order to apply through reciprocity, the salesperson MUST hold a current salesperson license in another state.

Applicants for a broker license must (1) pass the State portion of the examination, (2) submit verification of experience (actively engaged as a salesperson or broker for 36 out of 48 months preceding application for licensure), (3) submit original transcripts or certified copies of transcripts from the educational institution where the applicant completed 180 classroom hours of broker pre-licensing courses substantially equivalent to Virginia’s real estate education requirements, and (4) submit letters of certification from other jurisdictions where licensed. Also, in order to apply through reciprocity, the broker MUST hold a current broker license in another state.
