Out-of-State Real Estate License for Arizona

If you’ve recently moved to Arizona, you may qualify for the state’s Out-of-State License Recognition for real estate agents. Getting Arizona’s Out-of-State recognition is a big step, so to help we've collected and answered some frequently asked questions below.

What Is Arizona's Out-Of-State License Recognition for real estate agents?

Arizona’s Out-of-State License Recognition is a universal licensing program. Also known as HB 2569, it is the first such law in the U.S. and was passed in 2019. For real estate agents, that means if you have recently moved to Arizona and have been licensed to practice real estate in another state for at least one year, Arizona will recognize your license at the same level. There are other steps you must meet to qualify for the license recognition program, but it’s meant to benefit those who already have a real estate license and have moved to Arizona.

Individuals in Arizona who are seeking to qualify for Arizona’s Out-of-State License Recognition, according to the Arizona Department of Real Estate (ADRE), must:

  • Be an Arizona resident.
  • Be currently licensed in another state and have held that license for at least one year.
  • Have passed a real estate license examination in another state.
  • Be an applicant who has not had a license or certificate revoked or voluntarily surrendered in any other state or country.
