Are agents who work from their homes required to have branch-office licenses?

The Texas Real Estate Commission no longer requires branch-office licenses.

Section 1101.552 of The Real Estate License Act, which required a broker who maintained more than one place of business to obtain a branch office license for each additional office, was repealed during the 2019 legislative session.

There is no longer a process in place to apply for branch-office licenses. If you have a branch-office license, you will not need to renew it when it expires.
