Do you have to be a realtor to manage properties?

Realtor? (by John... [MI]) Posted on: Mar 2, 2009 3:56 PM

In some states, you must be to manage properties for other people. Hopefully, someone from CO can reply -- or check your state laws directly using the links above.

In every state that I'm aware of... yes.

To manage property and receive payment, you must either be licensed or an employee of the rental home owner. --209.181.xx.xx

REALTOR is the title of those agents who belong to the has NOTHING to do with their having real estate licenses or not.

Colorado requires an RE license to handle the money component of property management. If you handle money for rent or deposits you need a license and escrow accounts. People get around the license requirements by having the owners handle money. The best route is to get a license. The new RE Division director is aggressively going after folks to protect the public. So it is not a good time to be on the shadow side of the law.

ms requiers that you be a RE broker in order to handle money for rent/deposits...HOWEVER, this was challenged in court a couple of weeks ago. the judge told the broker that his court was above real estate law and that only the owner or their attorney could represent them, and then he made them leave..... --74.240.x.xx

Manage you own properties or other's properties? And, it is a state-specific question. I doubt any state requires a RE license to manage one's own stuff.
