" It Is the Division of Licensing of Department of State of New York State that issues and regulates Real Estate License"

That could be the "name" ... and it would be the place to call. But, smart guy, It would be the place I CALLED and the people I spoke when when I did the exact same thing and used my NJ licensing class hours to attain my NY license.

The link on te post below explains "reciprocity" that means you are looking to get the same benefits of being licensed from one place to another with no testing, just lets say it is even..

No NY & NJ does not do that.. You need to pass the NY test to get your license.

If the people below answering with a blanket "no" would just read what you are asking they would realize they are wrong. Yes, you can take the test and use your class hours towards NY class hours... I did it myself. You need to take the NY test and have proof that you did the classroom hours in NJ and have it approved.

Unfortunately, there is no reciprocity from New Jersey Real Estate Licensing to New York State Real Estate Licensing. Here's the link that establishes reciprocity with NYS.

You must check with local real estate commission to find out the RE laws and regulations in that particular State!!

John is correct in saying there may be inaccurate answers here. However, I am not aware of any "NY RE Commission" for the last 11 years that I am working in NY. It Is the Division of Licensing of Department of State of New York State that issues and regulates Real Estate License. Click on the link below and you will get the answer....

There is no need to get NASTY here, it is you who said "...you will get a bunch of inaccurate aswers..." and your answer was not quite "accurate". NY does not reciprocate with NJ. May be they did it before when you got yours but not now.

You can use your schooling towards your NY license. I did it myself and the courses were acceptable to the NY RE Commisssion. Unless agents here have done this procedure as I have, you will get a bunch of inaccurate aswers. You need to CALL the NY Re Commissin and tell them what you want to do and they will tell you what is necessary.

I am licensed in NJ and I called the NY RE Commission and was told I needed a copy of my school transcript fron the school that shows you took the course and passed the school test. Then I contacted the NJ RE Commission and get proof that I am a NJ licensed Realtor. Then I sent all this information to the NY RE Commission was waived for the class hours, then I took and passed the test in NY. No problem.

You need to call the NY RE Commission to verify your particular situation. very nice people.

You then need to hang your license with a NY Broker.

Not too sure if you can just use your class time towards your NY license alone. NY used to be less class hours for a RE license than Nj, But there are differences in the laws and procedures you need to review and understand.

(I did let my NY license lapse)

Good Luck.

Unfortunately, a NJ real estate license doesn't transfer over to NYS/NYC. A NJ r.e. agent must take the 75 hr course to be licensed in NY.

Good luck,

You should check and verify with the New Jersey real estate commission to see if there is a reciprocal agreement in place between NJ and NY.
