Delaware Licensing and Renewal

The primary objective of the Delaware Real Estate Commission (DREC) is to protect the public from practices that are unsafe and which tend to reduce competition or fix prices for services.

The commission also maintains standards of professional competence and service delivery. The commission approaches the fulfillment of this mission by meeting three objectives:

  • Development of standards for professional competency
  • Promulgation of rules and regulations
  • Adjudication of complaints against professionals and, when necessary, the imposition of disciplinary sanctions.

The commission issues licenses to real estate brokers, associate brokers, and salespeople. It also licenses real estate main and branch offices. If you have any questions about licensing, please contact the Delaware Real Estate Commission (DREC).

Pre-Licensing Preparation 

You can purchase your 99-Hour Delaware Real Estate Pre-Licensing package from The CE Shop. This online interactive course teaches you everything you’ll need to take the real estate licensing exam, using real-life inquiry-based scenarios.

You can also take courses from a variety of in-person schools. Here is a list of all the Delaware-Approved Pre-licensing Course Providers.
