Brokers must update licensee list before agents can renew

Just an important reminder:  Brokers must submit the names of real estate agents that are affiliated with their office on the Board of Registration website BEFORE their agents can renew their license.  The Board of Registration sent out a letter to all Designated Brokers of Record with instructions on mandated reporting that must be done on the DPL Website (Division of Professional Licensure).  The Broker of Record must sign into the Board of Registration site as the licensed brokerage (if LLC or INC) or as themselves as Broker (if sole proprietor or partner) to make the update.  Please see a copy of the letter for instructions.

Dear XXX,,

The Board of Registration of Real Estate Brokers and Salespersons (hereinafter, the “Board”) is in the process of updating our tracking of affiliated brokers and salespeople at
licensed brokerages. We are writing to you as you are the broker of record for the above­ referenced real estate brokerage and, as such, you are responsible for notifying the Board
of all affiliated individual licensees, whether broker or salesperson. See 254 Code Mass. Regs. § 3.00(7).

As part to this changed process, your notification to the Board of all current affiliated salespeople and brokers will be made through the electronic licensing record for the brokerage, not through your individual broker’s license, as has occurred in the past. As we are changing this process, you must re-enter this information under the licensed brokerage
on our system via accessing this link: Once logged in go to manage, licenses, permits and certificates.

Under the brokerage license chose amendment and select the appropriate affiliation amendment option.

The Board believes that tying the affiliations to the licensed brokerage will provide a more simplified process; particularly, if a new broker of record is nominated by the brokerage,
that designation can be changed directly on the brokerage’s electronic licensure record without requiring any further reentry of affiliated individual licensees. In addition, affiliations can be updated (added or deleted) again directly by accessing the brokerage’s licensure record.

For your convenience, here is the information to link the brokerage license to your portal if you have not already done so. We suggest having one account specifically for the brokerage for the above-mentioned reasoning of if a broker of record changes.

Agency: DPL
Record Id: xxx
Authorization Code: xxx

If you have not received a letter or you require assistance, please contact the Board of Registration at 617-727-2373.  Please note that staff at the Board Office cannot provide you with this information or perform these updates on your behalf.  Thank you!
