Do I have to be a managing broker to be the manager of a company?

Yes, you must have the managing broker eligibility to be the responsible broker (manager) of a company.

When does a broker need the managing broker eligibility on their license?

If a broker does not want to be affiliated with a company (sole proprietor) or wants to be the designated manager of a company, they must hold the managing broker eligibility.

Will you issue my new license if I haven't found a broker to work for yet?

If you do not have a broker with which to affiliate, your license will be placed in an “Unassigned” status.  Once you have found a broker to be affiliated with, you may submit a reassignment form or transfer your license to a company or managing broker using our online transfer system.
