Exclamation They better be licensed no matter what they call themselves

They can call themselves whatever they want but they better have a real estate license if they are helping someone with real estate in exchange for a fee, commission or other valuable consideration, at least that is what the licensing law says otherwise they are practicing real estate without a license. Yeah it's kind of a big deal.

I am a leasing agent, recently told by my management company that i have to have a real estate license to continue to work there as their leasing agent. Is this true in Michigan? My management company has a licensed Broker and my manager I work with has her real estate license. I have completed the 40 hour course, paid all the dues and have attempted the exam more times than i should have at my expense! I am finding that the exam has NOTHING to do with my job and am confused on why I have to have a license to lease apartments and get prospects???

I copied the below directly from the state web site. If the management company is managing or leasing property owned by others, you need a license.


"A real estate salesperson is defined as an individual who for compensation or valuable consideration is employed either directly or indirectly by a licensed real estate broker to sell or offer to sell, to buy or offer to buy, to provide or offer to provide market analyses, to list or offer or attempt to list, or to negotiate the purchase or sale or exchange or mortgage of real estate, or to negotiate for the construction of a building on real estate, or to lease or offer to lease, rent or offer for rent real estate, who is employed by a real estate broker to engage in property management, or who sells or offers for sale, buys or offers to buy, leases or offers to lease, or negotiates the purchase or sale or exchange of a business, business opportunity, or the goodwill of an existing business for others, as a whole or partial vocation.

Property management is defined as the leasing or renting, or the offering to lease or rent, of real property of others for a fee, commission, compensation, or other valuable consideration pursuant to a property management employment contract."
