FAQ: Does Pennsylvania offer reciprocity with other states?

Does Pennsylvania offer reciprocity with other states?

Yes, Pennsylvania offers reciprocity with the following six states:
1) Arkansas
2) Georgia
3) Louisiana
4) Maryland
5) Massachusetts
6) New York

In order to receive a reciprocal license, you must maintain your principal office in one of these six states, and you must hold a current, active broker or salesperson's license in the state.
If your principal office moves from one of these six states to Pennsylvania, you must notify the Real Estate Commission within 30 days and have your license updated from a reciprocal license to a standard license.

If you apply for reciprocity, you do not have to complete the 75-hour Pennsylvania pre-license course, or pass the state exam.

It takes approximately 2-3 weeks to apply for and receive a reciprocal license with Pennsylvania.
