How do I retire my real estate license?

Kristen -

If you wish to stop practicing real estate for any reason but do not want to give up your real estate license, you may place your license in retirement. In order to retire your license, you will complete the application online at Please upload the completed TREC-1 form with the application. If you have not registered an account already, please do so to proceed. 

While in retirement, you cannot participate in any real estate transactions; however, you may receive commissions from transactions completed prior to retirement. In addition, retired licensees MUST continue to renew the license by paying the renewal fee prior to the expiration date.

While retired, an active E&O insurance policy is not required nor is the licensee required to complete continued education.
