Who needs a license?
If your firm uses assumed names, you must have an assumed name license for each location in addition to your firm license.
An assumed name for a real estate firm must:
Be authorized by the designated broker
Have the same Unified Business Identifier (UBI) number as the firm
Be different than assumed names used by other licensed real estate firms
Not imply the firm is a public agency or a government, nonprofit, or research organization
How to apply for a license
Check to see if the name you want is available before submitting your application:
Obtain assumed name approval from Real Estate Regulatory. The request must be submitted by the person who is endorsed as the Designated Broker of the firm. Send a brief cover letter with your name, contact information and desired assumed name by fax to 360.570.4982 or email to firstname.lastname@example.org. You will receive notification within a minimum of 5-7 business days.
