Real Estate Reciprocity

Below are states that share real estate reciprocity with New York State.

All need current certification (dated within six months, from the Real Estate Commission where license was obtained), completed application, irrevocable consent form, and the appropriate fee.

Applicants seeking a reciprocal real estate salesperson's license must be sponsored by their home-state broker who must hold a current New York State broker's license.

Applicants seeking a corporate real estate broker's license must file said corporation in the New York State Corporations Bureau (One Commerce Plaza, 99 Washington Avenue, suite 600 Albany, NY 12231) as a foreign corporation.
