Active License Experience
Principal broker applicants must have three years of active licensed real estate experience.

If a license has been held in Oregon, no proof of experience is required. The Oregon Real Estate Agency has a record of the active license.
Out-of-state experience must be verified by a certified licensing history document, dated within the past year, from the state agency responsible for licensing real estate persons in that state and must show the actual period of time the out-of-state license was active.

Waiver of Experience Request
If an applicant does not meet any of the standard experience requirement options for principal broker licensing but has other real estate-related experience and/or education, a waiver of the required experience may be requested from the Oregon Real Estate Board. A request submitted for review by the Board should consist of the following information:
  • A completed Experience Waiver Request form outlining the related experience/education and why the waiver is justified. A resume and letters of recommendation may also be included.
  • Written verification from a previous or current employer of any unlicensed real estate related experience to substitute for actual licensed experience.
  • Official transcripts or original completion certificates verifying any additional real estate related education taken either in Oregon or in another state.
To request an Experience Waiver Request form, please contact the Agency at (503) 378-4170 and ask to speak to the Licensing Division.  An original request for waiver and eleven copies must be received in the Real Estate Agency no later than 21 days prior to the scheduled Board meeting.
