Department of Licensing Changes


The DOL is ending their Olympia Office Counter Services.
Starting January 1, 2016, the Real Estate Programs will no longer offer counter services at the Olympia Office.  Because of this change, initial license applicants will use their application as an interim license. The department will no longer provide a separate interim license for initial, renewal or other purposes.

What should you do?

Until the new e-licensing is implemented, please mail your licensing documents and payments to:

Real Estate Licensing
Department of Licensing
PO Box 3917
Seattle, WA 98124-3917

If your documents are complete, your license will be effective on the postmark date.
Please do not mail licensing documents and payments to the Olympia Offices. They will not be processed.

You can still renew your broker or managing broker licenses on-line at:

Can you still call if you have questions?
Yes!  For questions or to establish an appointment with one of our representatives, please call:  (360) 664-6500 or email
