Someone correct me if I’m wrong but I thought you couldn’t have a real
estate license if you had a criminal record.

In Maryland an elected delegate who committed real estate fraud lost his
license in one county but not another. He is trying to have the
interest rate on his repayment of penalty reimbursement money to the
state reduced by submitting a bill to the House and Senate which was
passed with no negative votes.

Criminal records can be expunged for a variety of reasons.

Convicted felons can have their civil rights restored by application
of such. Then they can own a gun and more.

As the former owner of a real estate brokerage firm in Iowa I can't
speak for other states but outlined below is a checklist of things you
will need to do in order to get your Iowa Real Estate license. Note that
it does not speak of a criminal record disqualifying a person.

- A salesperson must be assigned to (work for) a licensed broker or firm
and cannot conduct business independently.

- Be a person 18 years of age or over. (You may actually sit for the
exam before you are 18, but you MUST be 18 before you make the
application for a license, which must be within six months after you
pass the exam.) An applicant is not ineligible because of citizenship,
sex, race, religion, marital status, or national origin, although the
application form may require citizenship information.

- Be a person whose application has not been rejected for licensure in
this or any other state within twelve months prior to the date of
application, and whose real estate license has not been revoked in this
or any other state within two years prior to the date of application.

Sorry but I left out the background check which speaks to the following
and you should note that it says "may be denied", not "will be denied".

"An applicant for a real estate salesperson license who has been
convicted of forgery, embezzlement, obtaining money under false
pretenses, theft, extortion, conspiracy to defraud, or another similar
offense, or of any crime involving moral turpitude, in a court of
competent jurisdiction in this state or in any other state,
jurisdiction, territory, or district of the United States, or in any
foreign jurisdiction, may be denied a license by the commission on the
grounds of the conviction."

That would mean half of all Americans couldn't be real estate agents...

I guess anything is possible. It is possible to be president of the US and
not be a citizen.

Go figger.
