How should I proceed if I have a prior conviction?

You may still obtain a Pennsylvania real estate salesperson's license if you have a prior conviction; however, you must disclose any past criminal activity with your license application, and submit the required documentation.
The Real Estate Commission does not pre-review cases to determine if an applicant's past criminal activity will prevent them from obtaining a license.
