for multi family it’s not required BUT you’re supposed to be working under a licensed broker. If you’re leasing or managing single family homes, you’re required to be licensed. According to the law in NC, anyone who signs a lease or accepts a security deposit is required to be licensed. Most companies operate in the gray area knowing that the employee will be in trouble not them. Knowledge is power so do with it what you will.

her question was about apartment property managers not single family homes. The site can absolutely accept deposits and sign leases. There’s no way attorneys would represent apartment communities in eviction cases if leases weren’t valid because a licensed agent on-site was required. I’ve been in the industry in NC for 25 years so yes, knowledge is power.

Yes, Texas is happy to allow people to work. It's up to them and their employers if they actually do any.

To be site manager in MO there are no requirements. If you have the title property manager and work for a company that has a real estate brokerage license then the PM must have real estate license so the on site managers in our company have the title resident manager instead. I am tax credit compliance so have to have my HCCP

Washington, DC (District of Columbia)
Possible Virginia, depending on corporate structure

Virginia and Maryland do not require licensing or certification. Washington, D.C. does require licensing or certification. However, the support documentation can be helpful, and most residential/commercial companies will pay for the test and/or training if you express interest.
