Can You Become An Arizona Real Estate Agent With A Felony?

Will Arizona Allow Me To Become A Real Estate Agent If I Have A Felony Conviction In My Past?

Having a felony on your records doesn’t automatically mean you’ll be denied an Arizona real estate license. In fact, we’ve seen many instances where the Arizona Department of Real Estate (ADRE) grants licenses to individuals with specific felony convictions. However, it’s important to note that ADRE is the sole authority to make that determination. Our real estate school, or any other school for that matter, cannot predict ADRE’s decision or provide an answer regarding your eligibility. In our AZ salesperson course, we strongly emphasize the golden rule of real estate: “be the source of the source.” In light of this, we highly recommend reaching out to ADRE (the source) to assess your eligibility prior to enrolling in an Arizona real estate salesperson or broker course. Licensing is contingent on ADRE’s decision.

How Do I Contact the Arizona Department of Real Estate (ADRE)?

ADRE has a strong track record of getting back to people quickly. The preferred method is through the ADRE Message Center. Her you can send a quick message to ADRE and get the answers you need before spending money on getting a real estate license. ADRE can take up to 2 business days to get back to you, but we’ve experienced in many cases, a much quicker response time.
