Alberta Real Estate License Parking

What is “Parking”?

License and Registration

The Real Estate Council of Alberta (RECA) licenses all real estate professionals in the province. Contrary to popular belief, real estate brokerages DO NOT license brokers, associate brokers, or associates (agents). Real estate brokerages ONLY register the licenses of industry members, and ALL licenses are held by RECA.  If your Alberta real estate license is inactive and not registered, it is parked with the real estate council.  If you’re asking yourself; “how do I park my license?” you need to contact us for details about licensing and registration.  There are limits as to how long you can be licensed and not registered before your license expires, call or message us, we’re here to help!

REALTOR® license?

Some industry members state they have a “REALTOR® license”, however, they are incorrect because the word “REALTOR®” is NOT a license designation and it only indicates that a provincially licensed real estate professional maintains membership with the Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA). Using the trademarked name shows that an individual belongs to a national trade association and a local real estate board.  In short, “REALTOR®” does NOT indicate the class of real estate license or the jurisdiction agents are licensed to trade real estate in.
