FAQ: How do I apply for my PA real estate salespersons license?

How do I apply for my PA real estate salespersons license?

You can apply for your Pennsylvania real estate salesperson's license online using the state's PALS system.
You must complete the following steps to submit your application:
1) Sign in or create an account at www.pals.pa.gov
2) Once you log in, scroll down to the bottom of your dashboard and click on "Apply for New License", then select "Real Estate Commission" and "Real Estate Salesperson - Reciprocal" or "Real Estate Salesperson - Standard".
3) Answer the survey questions and click on "Next" to open the application.
4) Complete the application, upload the required documents, and click on "Send to Broker".
5) Once you click "Send to Broker", your prospective employing broker will be notified to log onto the PALS account associated with the broker office license. The broker of record will review and approve your application, certifying that they are willing to hire, train, and supervise you.
6) Once your employing broker has approved your application, log back into your PALS account, scroll to the bottom and locate your "My Queue" section. Click on "Review" to re-open the application and complete the legal questions. Click on "Submit" and then review the application before clicking on "Add to Cart". You will now pay for the application and submit it to the Commission.

At this point, the Commission will need one week to review your application and notify you if any additional information is needed.
If your application is approved, the Commission will mail a copy of your license to your employing broker's main office within 7-10 business days.
