Mission Statement

To protect the public interest, which embraces both the interests of the regulated real estate licensees and the interests of consumers who use their services and products.

We affirm that safeguarding the public interest in the selling, purchasing and leasing of real estate and developing responsive policies and procedures which are feasible and not unduly burdensome to regulated real estate licensees is a public and private trust. We approach our activities with a deep sense of purpose and responsibility. The public and regulated licensees can be assured of a balanced and sensible approach to regulation.

The Commission Structure

The Commission consists of five members appointed by the Governor: one from each of the four congressional districts and one member at large.

The law provides that at least three members shall have been real estate brokers for five years and at least one member shall have never engaged in business as a real estate broker and shall not be so engaged while serving on the Commission. This combination of industry and public members results in a well rounded, functioning unit.

Each member is appointed for a four-year term. Term expiration dates are staggered, resulting in one appointment each year for three years and two appointments in the fourth year. This ensures some continuity within the Commission.

The Commission appoints a director who is responsible for employing and directing the agency staff and implementing policies set by the Commission.
