1.) How do I obtain a Real Estate License in New Hampshire?

New Hampshire Real Estate licenses are issued by the New Hampshire Real Estate Commission. Licenses are up for renewal every two years from date of issue. License renewal(s) requires a total of 15 credit hours (four – 3Hr. Elective Courses and one – 3 Hr. CORE Course).

2.) Who is a REALTOR®?

A REALTOR® is a federally registered collective membership mark which identifies a real estate professional who is a member of the National Association of REALTORS® and subscribes to its strict Code of Ethics. A real estate licensee is not necessarily a REALTOR® and therefore is not held to this same standard.  

3.) How do I become a REALTOR®? 

Once one completes the licensing process and joins a real estate agency and that agency is a member of a local NH real estate Board, he or she must join a Board in which the agency belongs.  The application can be found under "Membership/ Applications." Upon completion of the application, submit with application fee, and prorated dues to GMNBR within 30 days of joining an agency.

Upon GMNBR’s receipt of the application and applicable fees, the application will be processed and entered into GMNBR’s’ database.  A NRDS # (National REALTOR® Database Systems) will be assigned – this number will stay with you as long as you are an active REALTOR®  regardless of agency or state.  Notification will be sent to NNEREN (Northern New England Real Estate Network) which oversees MLS (Multi-Listing Service) verifying agency association and receipt of a Board.  You will then be registered and sent a two-part Orientation schedule.  

Orientation Program:  A two part program that must be completed within 120 days of application submittal.  Part #I is presented by the New Hampshire Association of REALTORS® (NHAR) in Concord, NH and Part # II is presented by GMNBR followed by an Induction Ceremony.
