What year did Minnesota DOC require a real estate license to do property management?
“A rental service shall obtain a real estate broker’s license before engaging in business or holding itself out as being engaged in business. No person shall act as a real estate salesperson on behalf of a rental service without first obtaining a real estate salesperson’s license on behalf of the rental service.”
This was new language inserted to the previous version of the statutes with the Governor’s signature on the amendment bill making the new bill law as of May 15th, 2004 at 9:45 PM. (You can verify that by scrolling to the bottom).
Minnesota did increase the experience requirement to obtain a brokers’ license in 2011. The new requirement is you must have at least three years experience out of the last five in order to take the brokers’ exam in the state of Minnesota.
