What is Mutual Recognition?

Mutual Recognition is the term for the agreement between the state of Florida and ten (10) other states whereby an active real estate licensee in one of these nine states may apply his or her real estate education and experience to obtaining an equivalent license in Florida.

In simpler words, if you:

  1. Hold a current real estate license in good standing* in one of the 10 states,
  2. Are not a resident of Florida at the time of your application,
  3. AND Submit an application and fingerprints with payment...
    You will be eligible to take the Florida Real Estate Mutual Recognition Exam.

*NOTE: Applicants must have obtained the Real Estate license by having met the education and examination requirements of the state with which Florida has mutual recognition. Licensees cannot claim mutual recognition if they obtained their license, in the mutual state, by reciprocity.

The 10 recognized states are:

  • Alabama
  • Arkansas
  • Connecticut
  • Georgia
  • Kentucky
  • Illinois
  • Mississippi
  • Nebraska
  • Rhode Island
  • West Virginia

Alabama and Arkansas broker license applicants need 2 years of experience in the past 5 years as a real estate broker.
