Don’t wait until April 30 to renew broker licenses

The time to renew broker licenses is now. Although the online renewal process is expedient, it is always a good practice to plan for unexpected obstacles. Illinois REALTORS® should allow enough time to work around any issues that may occur.

Here are some reasons not to put license renewal off until the last minute:

  1. Website servers may have technical issues when there is a high volume of traffic all at once.
  2. If internet access is compromised, it may take time to gain access elsewhere.
  3. If there is a problem with the transaction, it will take time to contact the appropriate parties to address the issue.
  4. There is NO leeway on the April 30 renewal deadline. Regardless of the reason, a broker’s license will lapse if it is not renewed on time.
  5. It takes just a moment to follow this link to IDFPR and renew right now!

For those who choose to print and mail a paper copy of the renewal fee and payment, it must be postmarked no later than April 30, 2016  and mailed to: Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation, 320 West Washington St., P.O. Box 7086, Springfield, IL. 62791.
