South Dakota Real Estate Commission

The Real Estate Commission is a regulatory body charged with administering the Real Estate Licensing Act, the Timeshare Act, the Condominium Act and the Subdivision Act.

The mission of the Real Estate Commission is to protect the interest of the public when engaged in a real estate transaction. It is the commission's responsibility to enforce standards for education, licensing and practice of real estate brokers, salespersons, auctioneers, property managers, residential rental agents, timeshare agents and home inspectors, and for registration of condominium, timeshare and subdivision projects.

Important Notice: We will no longer be processing any new applications or renewal applications for the group Errors & Omissions (E & O) policy through the Rice Insurance Services Company (RISC). New applicants and licensees renewing their E & O will need to contact RISC directly to purchase the group E & O policy. Learn how to renew your group policy.

New Licensees – Please read carefully



Background checks are a requirement to become licensed with the SDREC – however fingerprinting is currently on hold in a majority of states until further notice. This will cause a delay in the licensing process. Please send in your completed application (minus the fingerprint cards) to meet the 60-day requirement. Applicants will be notified once fingerprinting is available.
