Created in 1951, The Tennessee Real Estate Commission licenses, registers and regulates real estate brokers and affiliate brokers, real estate firms, rental location agents, time-share salespersons and developments, vacation clubs and vacation lodging services.

The Commission also enacts rules addressing professional conduct and standards of practice.

The mission of the Tennessee Real Estate Commission is to protect the public through establishment and administration of minimum requirements for candidates and licensees, effective professional education of licensees and enforcement of professional conduct.

Attention Licensees:

As of 3/8/2017, all E&O insurance suspensions have been processed and updated. All  licensees who do not reflect current and sufficient E&O insurance have been placed in a suspended status and suspension letters are being sent in accordance with Tenn. Code Ann. 62-13-112(j)(2).

Pursuant to T.C.A. 62-13-112(k) & Rule 1260-01-.16, a licensee shall be reinstated without a penalty fee if, within thirty (30) days of suspension, the licensee provides proof of insurance to the Commission which complies with the required terms and conditions of coverage. On or after thirty-one (31) days, penalty fees will be assessed and must be paid, in addition to the requirement of proof of insurance, in order to reinstate your affiliate broker’s license. If you believe this suspension was in error, please provide proof of E&O to the Commission, if the proof is sufficient, the licensee will be immediately reinstated to the date of suspension. You may view the full text of Tenn. Code Ann. § 62-13-112 by visiting the Tennessee Real Estate Commission’s website at

Please be aware that this process will not change the status of licenses that were suspended as a result of another issue, including suspensions resulting from a failure to maintain errors and omissions insurance in a previous year that has not been cured.
