All REALTORS® Must Renew Licenses With LREC by December 31

The Louisiana Real Estate Commission and Appraisal Board has posted 2017 License Renewal packets to your LREC email address. If you have not received it in your email you need to go the the LREC website, login, and review your status.

All licenses, both real estate and appraisal, must be renewed by December 31 in order to remain active and have MLS services in January 2017. Please note December 31 falls on a weekend and the LREC may be closed part of the week prior to that weekend. We strongly encourage members to take care of license renewal well in advance of December 31. 

LREC cannot process 14,000 applications overnight.  Until a license is properly processed, you may find yourself without services. This is because E&O insurance compliance is part of the process, and no one can practice real estate or appraisal without an active license.

To check your status go to the LREC website.  If you need help call LREC at (225) 925-1923.  

Please remember NOMAR is not LREC.  We cannot process anything for you related to your license or E&O.
