In Georgia, exams, licensing, and continuing education for real estate agents are governed by the Georgia Real Estate Commission.

There are four real estate licenses in Georgia:

Salesperson - if acting on behalf of a broker, a salesperson may perform any real estate brokerage act that requires a real estate license in Georgia. In order to be active in real estate brokerage, a salesperson must be affiliated with a sole proprietorship, a corporation, a partnership, or a limited liability company that is also licensed as a broker.

Broker - a broker may perform any real estate brokerage act that requires a real estate license in Georgia. In order to be active in real estate brokerage, an individual broker must be affiliated with a sole proprietorship, a corporation, a partnership, or a limited liability company that is also licensed as a broker.

Associate Broker - if acting on behalf of a broker, an associate broker may perform any real estate brokerage act that requires a real estate license in Georgia. In order to be active in real estate brokerage, an associate broker must be affiliated with a sole proprietorship, a corporation, a partnership, or a limited liability company that is licensed as a broker.

Community Association Manager - if acting on behalf of a broker, a community association may only manage one or more community associations. Community associations include such organizations as condominium associations and homeowner associations. In order to be active in community association management, a community association manager must be affiliated with a sole proprietorship, a corporation, a partnership, or a limited liability company that is also licensed as a broker.

Fees for Licenses

An individual applying for a community association manager's or salesperson's license within three months from the date of taking the licensing examination must pay a total fee of $170.00. Any person making application for a community association manager's or salesperson's license more than three months but less than twelve months from the date of taking the examination must pay a total fee of $340.00. Any person making application for a broker's license must pay a total fee of $170.00. These fees cover all fees due for the first four years of licensure.

GCIC Requirement for all Applicants
All applicants MUST obtain and bring to the test center (not to the Commission), prior to receiving a real estate license, a copy of the Applicant's Georgia Crime Information Center (GCIC) report, also known as a criminal history.

Such reports must not be more than 60 days old. The applicant can obtain a GCIC Report from any local sheriff’s office or police department. (Depending on the law enforcement agency’s policy, there may be a waiting period to obtain the report.) If the applicant is aware of any conviction, nolo contendere plea, or first offender sentence that is not on the GCIC report, the applicant must disclose such conviction(s). The license will not be issued to the applicant without a GCIC report.

Criminal Convictions or Disciplinary Actions
Any applicant who has been convicted of a crime or sanctioned by any licensing or regulatory agency of any kind must reveal that fact on his or her application. The Commission will then conduct an investigation and review the application thoroughly before deciding whether to issue the license.

Preliminary Decision Applications
Applicants having prior criminal convictions and/or disciplinary actions may wish to apply for a preliminary decision from the Commission. Upon receiving a preliminary decision application, the Commission will conduct an investigation and then decide whether it would issue a license if the applicant fulfilled all the requirements for licensure. Thus a potential licensee can receive an indication of whether a license would be issued before incurring the time and expense of meeting the licensing requirements. There is no fee for this application.

Licensing Requirements For Georgia Residents Age Requirements
An individual must be at least 18 to be licensed as a community association manager or salesperson and 21 to be licensed as a broker or associate broker. Applicants may take the community association manager's or salesperson's examination at age 17, but cannot activate the license until they are 18. Similarly, applicants may take the broker's examination at age 20, but cannot activate the license until they are 21.

Postlicense Education Requirements
Salespersons must take a 25 hour Salespersons postlicense course in their first year of licensure. The course taken must be one specifically approved by the Commission. Failure to complete a postlicense course during the first year of being licensed will cause the license to lapse.

Continuing Education Requirements
All active licensees licensed after January 1, 1980, must complete at least twenty-four (24) hours of approved continuing education course work during each four year renewal period.

Inactive Status
Any individual who successfully passes the licensing examination may apply to place his or her license on inactive status rather than activating it with a broker. In any case, the applicant must pay the appropriate licensing fee. The salesperson postlicense educational requirements apply to a salesperson who goes on inactive status. Any licensee who places a license on inactive status must also pay renewal fees as they come due.

Experience Requirements
There are no experience requirements for a community association manager's or salesperson's license. The law requires three years of active licensure in Georgia or in another state before an applicant may qualify for a broker's license. To obtain approval of out-of-state experience, the applicant must secure a certified copy of his or her license history and education in other states from those states' licensing agencies and submit this with his or her application for licensure before taking the examination. The certified copy or copies of the license history must not be more than one year old at the time of application.

The Georgia Real Estate Salesperson, Broker, and Community Association Manager examinations are administered via computer by Applied Measurement Professionals (AMP) at four test centers throughout the state of Georgia.
