By Anne M. Petit, Superintendent, Ohio Division of Real Estate & Professional Licensing

Due to many factors, including a high volume of deficient applications, we are currently experiencing longer than normal delays in processing new salesperson license applications. Processing time for a salesperson application is now 2-3 weeks from the time the Division receives it.

Please communicate this information to your applicants – and other affiliated licensees – to help set expectations on timeframes. Calling the Division only takes staff away from processing applications. Unfortunately, with the pandemic, our process is further hindered, and we’re unable to meet our usual turnaround times.

For fastest processing, work with your applicant to ensure that these guidelines are followed:

The entire staff is working hard to gain ground and get applications processed faster – we need your help. Thank you in advance for your help in getting through this in good shape, together!
