Why Did I Not Receive My Massachusetts Real Estate License Renewal Paperwork?

The last few weeks we’ve been receiving many phone calls from agents asking us, “How do I renew my license?” , “When do I renew my license?” and “When does the Board send out the renewal paperwork?”. The first question that we ask is “When is your birthday?”. The Board of Real Estate Brokers and Sales Persons will mail out the renewal forms 2 months before your birthday. If they have not yet received the forms, we always ask if they have moved. The Board does not check to see if your mailing address has changed. It is our responsibility as Real Estate agents in Massachusetts to update our mailing address with the board.
