Guidelines for Broker Licenses
Colorado license law acknowledges three levels of responsibility and authority.
- Associate Broker: This is the entry level license for real estate brokerage An Associate Broker may hold an inactive license or be employed and supervised by an Employing Broker. No previous active real estate licensure is required to practice at this level of responsibility.
- Independent Broker: An Independent broker can be inactive, self-employed (without employing other licensees) or practice under the supervision of an Employing Broker. Two years of active licensure are a prerequisite for this level of licensure.
- Employing Broker: An Employing Broker can have an inactive licensure, practice independently or employ (and is required to supervise) other licensees.
If you are licensed in one of the 49 other U.S. States, Colorado will accept an application for licensure with limited examination and or pre-licensing education requirements. If you are licensed in one of these jurisdictions and would like to apply for a Colorado license, review the Colorado Real Estate Broker License Application in order to determine licensing requirements, and follow the instructions on the application.
