Criminal felony- Can i get a real estate Realtor license?

Fort Myers, FL |

i Have 3 felony charges. I served my full sentence. One felony was Cocaine possession the other one was kidnapping and the final one is carjacking? When i was in prison i took real estate classes now that i'm out i would like to get my license. i served a 6 year 8 month sentence. Is there anyway with my criminal history to obtain a real estate Realtor license?

  1. That decision would be made by the Board of Realtors under the Secretary of State who decide all licensing issues with regard to Realtors. Realistically, I don't like your cances, especially with a kidnapping conviction. You should contact the Realty division under the Secreatry of State for a definitive answer.


  2. Contact the Florida Department of Business Regulation
