The Broker Responsibility Working Group (BRWG) met October 12 and discussed requirements for obtaining and renewing a broker’s license, as well as property management issues.
BRWG Recommends Requiring Course for All Broker License Applicants and at Renewal
The group recommends that the Broker Responsibility Course be required for license holders prior to obtaining a broker’s license, and that all brokers are required to take Broker Responsibility Course upon a broker’s renewal. This would require a statutory change. The Commission will discuss this recommendation during the TREC Workshop on November 8.
BRWG Asks Staff About Solutions to Identify Property Managers
The group discussed broker oversight of property management activities through additional education and instructed staff to explore ways for a broker to identify which agents they sponsor are allowed to practice property management. These initiatives require more input from the Commission and will continue being discussed at forthcoming meetings.
