About Us

The West Virginia Real Estate Commission was created in 1937 with the purpose of protecting the public interest from the unauthorized, unqualified and unregulated practice of real estate brokerage (agents and firms).

The West Virginia Real Estate Commission is an independent state governmental agency.  It should not be confused with the West Virginia Association of REALTORS® (or its local Boards), which is a trade organization whose members are known as "REALTORS®".

The West Virginia Real Estate Commission is not authorized to give legal advice or answer questions on legal subjects other than the West Virginia Real Estate License Law and Legislative Rules.
