Florida Mutual Recognition/Reciprocity Licensing

Do You Have an Illinois Real Estate License and
Want a Florida Real Estate License?

Florida Licensing Details, Video Introduction, & To Order click here

In August of 2014, Florida and Illinois signed reciprocity agreements with each other (Florida calls it "Mutual Recognition"). What this means is if you have a valid real estate license in either state you can get the other license simply by passing the State portion of their State exam (currently a 40 question state specific exam). Note: If you are a Florida resident with an Illinois license and want to get a Florida license you cannot use the reciprocity program. Instead you must complete the full education requirements for licensing.

Florida licensing consists of Sales Associate and Broker. If you have an Illinois Broker license you can get the Florida Sales Associate license. The licenses are issued as inactive (cannot practice real estate). To become active you must be associated with a Broker (we know it as being sponsored). If you have an Illinois Managing Broker license you can get the Florida Broker's license. Florida Broker licensees can sponsor themselves as long as they have an office for that license in Illinois or in Florida. You do not need a Florida address. Everything can be registered and done with an Illinois address.

To take the Florida exam you first submit the application. You are required to be fingerprinted and subject to an FBI background check which can be done in Illinois. Cost is $59. You also need a Certification of Licensure from the State of Illinois.

There are locations in Illinois to take the Florida exam. Pearson Vue is the testing service Florida uses. Cost is $31.50. Upon passing the Florida exam you can apply for the license. Cost is $89. The license will be good for 18 to 24 months. All these details, plus more, and how to get them accomplished is covered in the education course.

In an effort to help obtain your Florida license, Sure Win is working with the Florida Real Estate School, one of the largest Florida schools offering online courses. They have an education course specifically for passing the Florida State exam.
