In Utah there are 3 types of licenses available. They are as follows:
Sales Agent - Sales agents are typically licensees that are just involved in helping people buy and sell properties.
Principal Broker - Principal Brokers direct and supervise a real estate office with agents working under them.
Associate Broker - Associate Brokers are licensed Brokers that do not direct or supervise an office like a principal broker does.
The following pages will give you a basic understanding of each type of license. Also the National Association of Realtors® has outlined this very clearly on their website. Click the link below to see their explanation.
