CUSTOMER SERVICE SPOTLIGHT...
Florida Real Estate Commission licensees can now expedite the licensing process by self-printing their real estate licenses. Applicants who have passed the state's licensing examination can now print their license from their secure online account with DBPR. This feature enables real estate licensees to begin working sooner by eliminating the previous seven to 10 day timeframe it took licenses to arrive by mail. In addition to new licenses, existing real estate licensees can now renew online and print their license at their convenience. Watch this short video for more information.
