Individuals actively licensed in all other states may start the process by providing a certificate of full licensing history from the state where they were first licensed and are currently licensed. Send the history document (original only, not a copy) to us within 30 days of its issue date by your home state along with a cover letter, personally signed, with your mailing address and complete contact information, including an email address. Send to the Education Administrator, Maryland Real Estate Commission, 1100 North Eutaw Street, Baltimore, MD 21201. Do not fax or email this information. If qualified, you will be sent all information needed to register for the exam, and if you do not qualify you will be so advised. Education and experience from a home state are reviewed for transferability, individually for each applicant. Waivers may be offered only to active licensees.
