Minnesota Real Estate License Requirements

In Minnesota, exams, licensing, and continuing education for real estate agents are governed by the Minnesota Department of Commerce.

There are two basic real estate licenses in Minnesota, a salesperson's license and a broker's license. Generally, a salesperson's license allows the holder to sell real estate only under the auspices of a licensed broker. (Salesperson's licenses are generally what people refer to when they say they have a real estate license.)

Real Estate Salesperson's License

A Salesperson must be licensed to act on behalf of a licensed Minnesota Broker, and may not be licensed to act on behalf of more than one licensed Minnesota Broker during the same period of time. The license of each Salesperson shall be mailed to and remain in the possession of the licensed Minnesota Broker with whom the Salesperson is affiliated until the Salesperson ends affiliation with the Broker. The term of a Salesperson license is two years, expiring on June 30. Application forms are available by clicking on the links below.

Sample Salesperson Exam

Real Estate Broker's License

Applicant must have 2 years of licensed Minnesota Salesperson experience within the 5 years prior to the date of application for a Broker license in Minnesota or another state with comparable requirements. If this experience was obtained in another state, you must first submit a "Request for Waiver of Salesperson Experience" form. Applicants who wish to be considered for a waiver of the Salesperson experience requirement must submit this form to the Commerce Department and receive approval prior to taking the Broker exam.

Sample Brokers Exam

Minnesota has reciprocal agreements with:

  • Colorado
  • Iowa
  • Nebraska
  • North Dakota
  • Oklahoma
  • South Dakota
  • Wisconsin

Anyone holding licenses from any of these states may apply for a reciprocal license, and may be able to forego some classroom work and other requirements.
