Are You Aware of the New Rules and Requirements for Real Estate Professionals? Let Triton help you update your license. The new law changes the license categories under the Real Estate License Act of 2000 from Salesperson and Broker to Broker and Managing Broker. The status of Real Estate Salesperson has been discontinued. The term “broker” is what the public identifies with when it comes to the real estate licensee they work with in a transaction. The term “managing broker” clearly identifies the person(s) in the brokerage operation that have management authority and responsibility.

Broker

Frequently Asked Questions

• Increases the entry-level of licensure – now “broker” from 45 hours of pre-license courses to 90 hours of prelicense courses. • Provides that 15 of those hours shall be “situational” offerings in a classroom or interactive setting. • Requires brokers to take 30 hours of post-licensure education within the first renewal period. 15 of those hours must be situational in an interactive setting. • Requires 12 hours of continuing education (CE) each renewal period (except the first period when the 30 hours of post-license coursework are taken).

Managing Broker • The current top category of licensure – “broker” – requires 120 hours of licensure (salesperson plus 45 hours). This bill creates the new category of “managing broker,” and requires managing brokers to have 165 pre-license hours (the 120 broker hours, plus a 45 hour course of study focusing on management of an office, supervision of licensees, and administrative issues; 15 of those 45 hours would be situational offerings in an interactive setting). • Managing brokers would have to take the 12 hours per renewal of broker CE, plus an additional 12 hours of CE on broker management.

Enroll in Triton’s Real Estate Academy: Two courses are available depending on your current status. (All courses include the required 15 hour interactive component) 1. If your Illinois Real Estate Salesperson license has expired or if you have never held a Real Estate License, you can take the 90 hour Broker Pre-License class, RES E13. 2. If you are a currently Licensed Real Estate Broker, you can transition to Managing Broker by taking the 45 hour Managing Broker Pre-License class, RES E17.

Do I need to worry about the conversion right now? Please visit www.idfpr.com/ for more information on the transition process. What are the new license categories under the revised Act? Two main categories of licensure will exist under the revised Act: a) Managing Broker b) Broker There are no changes to the Leasing agent requirements. I am a real estate salesperson with an active license. How long will my license remain in effect? The expiration date on all actively-licensed real estate salesperson licenses was extended an additional year and expired April 30, 2012. I am a real estate salesperson who did not renew my license in 2009. Can I still renew my license? No, the cut off date was April 30, 2011. You will need to meet the requirements of a new licensee. Can I obtain a managing broker license and not manage an office? Yes, just the same as brokers did under the old license law. However only licensed managing brokers designated with the Department as a managing broker by their sponsoring broker can advertise themselves to the

public as a managing broker. Managing brokers that are not designated with the Department as a managing broker should advertise themselves as a “broker”. Where is more information available on the new Act? The revised Real Estate License Act of 2000 is available at www.idfpr.com/DPR/RE/REALEST. asp Select the Real Estate License Act of 2000 link. I failed the proficiency examination. How can I transition my license? You will need to provide the Division with proof of postlicense education which will be the 30-hour course for salesperson to broker and proof of passing the 45-hour course for broker to managing broker. A transition form will be available on the IDFPR Web site at www.idfpr.com/RETransition. I had a discipline against a previous license. How will this affect my ability to transition my license? Any discipline orders that exist will need to go through the Enforcement section for further review. How can I check the status of my license with the Department? By entering your license number into the IDFPR online look-up at www.idfpr.com/dpr/licenselooku p/default.asp
