Real estate appraiser by reciprocity

We have a new online service for managing professional and business licenses. These videos and guides can help you set up your account access. For help using the new service, please contact your professional licensing program.

We expect a processing delay for mailed applications and renewals. Renew or apply online for faster processing of your license. Thank you for your patience and we apologize for any inconvenience.

You may get a reciprocal license or certificate to practice real estate appraising in the state of Washington if you're:

  • Currently licensed or certified in another state that meets federal guidelines.
  • and
  • In good standing with that state's regulatory board.
