I am Already Licensed in Another State - Can I Practice in Texas? (Reciprocity)
License Reciprocity Statement
Texas does not have reciprocity with any other states with regard to real estate licensure. A Texas broker may share a commission with a foreign license holder so long as the foreign license holder does not engage in activities requiring a license in Texas. All negotiations conducted within Texas must be handled by a Texas broker.
Becoming Licensed in Texas
To become licensed in the state of Texas, an out of state license holder must meet all current Texas licensing requirements, which can be found on the "How to Become a Licensed Individual Real Estate Broker" section of the website. An applicant may not have to take the national portion of the licensing examination if the applicant maintains an active license equivalent to the license being applied for and has already passed a comparable national examination that is accredited by a nationally recognized real estate regulator association such as ARELLO.
