Managing Your Business in eLicense
eLicense, online license management system
As a principal broker or property manager, you will have two separate accounts in eLicense, the Agency’s new online license management system. You will use one to manage your personal license. You will use the other to manage your business account, whether you have a registered business name or you are doing business under your licensed name.

Business Processes You Manage Under Your Personal Account
License Transfers and Associations (Add/Remove Licensees)
The license transfer process will no longer be started by licensees transferring to your business. To transfer or associate a license:
  • Log in to eLicense under your personal license account. 
  • Select "Add/Remove Licensees" from the left-hand menu.
  • A list of current associated licensees will be displayed. Select "Next" to continue.
  • Select "Add," then search for the licensee you wish to transfer. 
  • Select "Add" next to the licensee you wish to transfer to your business. 
  • Confirm your selection.
  • At this point, you can select more licensees to transfer to your business, or select "Next."
  • From the "Remove Associations" box you can remove a licensee from your business. (See Inactivations below.)
  • Fill out the Supervision Attestation.
  • Review your request, then select "Proceed to Payment" to pay the $10 transfer fee for each active licensee transferred. (First time licensees or reactivating licensees have no fee, so you would then select "Finish.")
Each transferring licensee will receive an e-mail confirmation. If applicable, each licensee’s previous principal broker or property manager will receive an e-mail notifying that the licensee is no longer associated with them.
 
Any principal broker or property manager working under your registered business name will have access to transfer new licensees to the business.

Inactivate a License (Add/Remove Licensees)
When you are no longer supervising a licensee, you can inactivate the licensee’s license.
  • Log in to eLicense under your personal license account. 
  • Select "Add/Remove Affiliated Licensees" from the left-hand menu.
  • From the "Add Associations" box you can transfer licensees to your business. (See License Transfers above.) Select "Next."
  • Select "Edit" next to the licensee you would like to inactivate.
  • Confirm your selection by choosing "Inactive" from the "Association Status" dropdown menu, then select "OK."
  • At this point, you can select more licensees to inactivate, or select "Next."
  • Fill out the Supervision Attestation.
  • Review your request, then select "Finish" to process. (If you have also transferred a licensee to your business, then select "Proceed to Payment" to pay the $10 transfer fee for each active licensee transferred. There is no fee for first time licensees or reactivating licensees.)
Each licensee you inactivate will receive an e-mail confirmation. 
 
Licensees can also inactivate their own licenses in eLicense under their personal license account.

Clients' Trust Account Management
You must notify the Agency within 10 business days of opening or closing a clients' trust account. (ORS 696.241) You now do this online by logging in to eLicense under your personal license account.
 

Business Processes You Manage under Your Business Account
  • Change Your Main Office Address 
  • Open a Branch Office 
  • Close a Business or Registered Business Name (Note: Licenses associated with the business will be inactivated automatically.)
If you are a principal broker and property manager operating under your own licensed name or a registered business name, you will need to log in to eLicense under your business account login to change your main office address, open a branch office, or close a business.

What do PBLN and PMLN mean?
PBLN stands for "principal broker license name" and PMLN stands for "property manager license name."
 
eLicense requires that some processes be done under your personal account, and some under your business account.
 
If you conduct professional real estate activity under a Registered Business Name, there is already a separate business account. If you do business under your own licensed name, the Agency has created a separate business account for you using the terms "PBLN" for principal brokers and "PMLN" for property managers.
 
Principal brokers and property managers who want to work under their own licensed name in the future will need to register for a PBLN or a PMLN to establish a business account.
