  5. Pass a state licensing exam
  6. Submit to a background check

Your first step will be to register with the Oregon Real Estate Agency as soon as possible. It may take several weeks for an application to be processed, so starting this step as soon as you can will decrease licensing wait time.

Submit fingerprints for a background check.

Choose how you will work as a property manager.


Choose how to work:

  • Independently
  • For another licensed property manager
  • Under the supervision of an Oregon principal real estate broker

As an Oregon property manager, you can choose to work independently (either by using your own name or a registered business name), work for another licensed property manager, or work under the supervision of an Oregon principal real estate broker.

If you work on your own, log into the Oregon Real Estate Agency's eLicense website and choose the "Operate under my own license" registration (for your own name) or "Registered Business Name Application" (for registering a business name). If you are going to be working under another property manager or principal broker, then that individual will have to log into their eLicensing account and associate your property manager's license with their business.
