The Real Estate Commission of Maryland was
constituted in 1939 to license all real estate brokers
and salespersons doing business in Maryland
(Chapter 351, Acts of 1939). In the major 1988
revision of the law regulating real estate brokers, the
Commission was renamed the State Real Estate
Commission (Chapter 563, Acts of 1988). The
Commission adopts regulations for licensing real
estate brokers and salespersons, formulates a code
of ethics for the business of real estate, and sets
standards for hearings conducted by itself or the

Real Estate Hearing Board. Each applicant for a
real estate salesperson's or broker's license must
complete courses relating to the principles of real
estate in order to qualify for examination.
The Commission may revoke, refuse, or suspend
a license and reprimand or fine a person up to
$2,000 per violation for unethical conduct or for
violating the real estate laws. Since 1971, the Com-
mission has administered the Real Estate Guaranty
Fund of Maryland (Chapter 648, Acts of 1971).
The Fund, in essence, bonds all licensees.
The Commission is composed of nine members
appointed to four-year terms by the Governor with
the advice of the Secretary of Licensing and Regula-
tion and Senate advice and consent. Five members
are licensed professionals including real estate
brokers, associate brokers, or salespersons. Four
members are consumers. Of the professional mem-
bers, one each represents the Eastern Shore,
Central Maryland, Baltimore City, Southern
Maryland, and Western Maryland, and three repre-
sent the State at large. The at-large members cannot
be engaged in the real estate business. All members
must have been citizens and residents of the area for
which they were appointed for not less than five
years before appointment. Excepting the at-large
members, they also must have been actively
engaged in the real estate business for ten years
prior to appointment. Authorization for the Com-
mission continues until July 1, 2002 (Code Busi-
ness Occupations and Professions Article, sees.
16-101 through 16-702).

REAL ESTATE HEARING BOARD
The authority to create the Real Estate Hearing
Board was given to the Commission in 1968 (Chapter
89, Acts of 1968). With the approval of the Secretary
of Licensing and Regulation, the Real Estate Com-
mission may appoint three of its members to sit as a
real estate hearing board. The Commission refers
charges or complaints made by itself or other persons
to the Board for hearings. The Board hears all matters
referred to it and submits its findings and recommen-
dations to the Commission. The Commission desig-
nates one of its members as Board chairperson.
Authorization for the Board continues until July 1,
1992 (Code Business Occupations and Professions
Article, sees. 16-325,16-326).
