The Real Estate Commission, originally
established by Chapter 351, Acts of 1939
had its membership expanded by Chapter
617, Acts of 1961, its composition rede-
fined by Chapter-506, Acts of 1966, and its
composition further redefined by Chapter
653, Acts of 1971 and Chapter 851, Acts
of 1974. The Commission is composed of
eight members, appointed by the Governor
with the advice of the Secretary of Licens-
ing and Regulation, and the advice and
consent of the Senate. One member repre-
sents the Eastern Shore; one, Central Mary-
land; one, Baltimore City; one, Southern
Maryland; one, Western Maryland; and two,
the State at large. The at large members
must not be engaged in the real estate busi-
ness. All members must be citizens and resi-
dents of the area for which they were
appointed for not less than five years, and
they must have been actively engaged in
the real estate business for ten years prior
to appointment, except the at large mem-
bers. The Commission selects its own Chair-
man and licenses all real estate agencies,
brokers and salesmen doing business in
Each applicant for a real estate salesman's
or broker's license must complete courses
relating to principles of real estate in order
to> qualify for examination

The Commission has the power to revoke,
refuse, or suspend licenses of any agency
or person for violating the real estate laws
or for unethical conduct. The Real Estate
Commission, by Chapter 648, Acts of 1971
administers the Real Estate Guaranty Fund
of Maryland, which in essence bonds all
licensees (Code 1957, 1972 Repl. Vol.,
Art. 56, sees. 212-232).
Staff: 13.
The Real Estate Hearing Board was orig-
inally created by Chapter 89, Acts of 1968.
The Real Estate Commission of Maryland
may appoint, with the approval of the Sec-
retary of Licensing and Regulation, three of
its members to sit as a real estate hearing
board. The Commission designates one of
its members as the chairman of the board,
while all members of the Commission serve
on this board on a rotating basis.
The Commission may refer charges or
complaints made by itself or other persons
under the provisions of Section 224 of Ar-
ticle 56 of the Code to a real estate hearing
board for hearings on these matters. The
board holds hearings on all matters referred
to it and submits its findings and recom-
mendations to the Commission. The exercise
or performance of all powers, authority,
duty and functions vested in the Board by
the law are subject to the power and au-
thority of the Secretary of Licensing and
Regulation as set forth in Article 41 of the
Code and elsewhere in the laws of Mary-
land (Code 1957, 1972 Repl. Vol., Art. 56,
sec 224A)
