The Division of Real Estate and Professional Licensing is part of the Ohio Department of Commerce. This division is responsible for licensing Ohio's real estate brokers, salespeople, appraisers and foreign real estate dealers and salespeople. The Division is also responsible for the registration of real estate developments located in other states but marketed in Ohio.
ODRE operates licensing and examinations for all real estate salespersons and brokers. The Division has contracted with PSI licensure: certification (PSI) to conduct examinations. The State of Ohio and PSI work closely together to ensure that examinations meet local and national requirements in basic principles and development standards.
