Available Licenses

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.

Keep in mind that not all licensees are Realtors® or members of the National Association of Realtors®. Members of the National Association of Realtors® are known as Realtors®, whereas an agent that is not a member of this association is simply called a real estate agent. You will learn more about this in the Who's Who in Real Estate lesson.
