An applicant for a Louisiana Real Estate Broker’s License must:
1. You must have an active Real Estate Salesperson License (or equivalent) for four years in any state/jurisdiction
NOTE: You do not have to currently have your real estate salesperson license. You just need to have an active license for four years. Effective 8/1/16 the two years immediately prior to the broker license application need to be in active status. Though a salesperson license must be held for four years, it does not have to be a Louisiana License.
2. You must have obtained a high school diploma or GED
3. 150 Hours of approved course work in courses specified by the LREC (includes a 30 hour broker responsibility portion)
4. Comply with all application procedures required by the LREC including a background check
5. Pass the Real Estate Broker Licensing Examination
6. Provide proof of valid errors and omissions insurance (e&o)
If you are currently licensed in another state as a salesperson or broker or have taken college courses in real estate related topics, some of these requirements may be amended.

In Louisiana, there is no state residency requirement to have a Louisiana Salesperson’s License or Louisiana Broker’s License. You are only required to be a United States Citizen or a Legal Alien.
