You can find out most everything you need to know through DBPR (Department of Business and Professional Regulation)... check out their website... you can call as well.

You can check the state license board ask the agent their license number and verify also a good way is to call the brokers office and verify their contact phone number or I am a huge fan of google.com if you suspect something is off, get the persons  cell number and google that number- most agents do a lot of business on the internet such as websites, blogging and the cell number should pop up . Best of luck to you

Since not all agents are Realtors, the best way to know if the agent in question is "legit" is to check their license status through your state's licensing authority.  The easiest way to do this is to do a web search (Google, Yahoo, Bing, etc) for your state's name followed by "Department of Real Estate".  This will usually bring up the right department for you where you can search for the person by name and see if they are licensed.  Remember to check the expiration and status of the license. I'm licensed in three states, but my Texas license is on inactive status which means I cannot currently sell real estate in Texas and be within the law.

Hope this helps!

Your local board of REALTORS will supply you with up-to-date information on all of your local registered (legit!) agents!  Good luck my friend, give me a call if you have any questions.

The fastest way to check here in the Springs is to go to the PPAR.com website (Pikes Peak Association of Realtors).  If they are licensed, legit and working here in the Springs you should be able to find them here.

You can contract your state Real Estate Commission.  They will be able to tell you if an Agent is currently licensed.

Best of Luck
