delaware real estate commission
As you may know, real estate licensees must complete defined amounts of continuing education (CE) to meet requirements set forth by the Delaware Division of Professional Regulation and administered by the Delaware Real Estate Commission (DREC). The primary objective of the Delaware Real Estate Commission is to protect the public from unsafe practices and those which tend to reduce competition or fix prices for services. The Commission must also maintain standards of professional competence and service delivery. The Commission is charged with the following:
- Develop standards for professional competency.
- Promulgate rules and regulations.
- Adjudicate complaints against professionals and, when necessary, impose disciplinary sanctions.
The Commission issues licenses to real estate brokers, associate brokers, and salespersons. It also licenses real estate main and branch offices.
