Yes. Property management is expressly considered a real estate activity requiring a real estate broker's license under existing Nevada real estate licensing laws. If a property manager is going to lease, rent, list, collect rents, procure prospects or negotiate, assist, or offer to perform any of those acts, he or she will need either a salesperson's OR broker's license. In addition, he or she must obtain a property manager permit.
YES. For example, no broker's license is required if the property manager does not engage in leasing activities, or if they are strictly on-site managers.
For more information about these and other Nevada property management requirements and exceptions, please contact the Nevada Real Estate Division.
Before hiring a property manager to manage your Nevada rental property, you should always check that he or she is licensed appropriately. You can check the license status of Nevada property managers at the Division's online license lookup webpage.
