Real Estate Commission

Our Mission

The mission of the Alaska Real Estate Commission is to protect the public interest by licensing practitioners and enforcing the established standards, to promote professional excellence in the real estate industry, and to support and encourage licensees.

Who We Are

The Alaska Real Estate Commission consists of 5 real estate brokers or associate brokers and two public members. Commission members are appointed by the governor and confirmed by the Legislature. The Division of Corporations, Business and Professional Licensing, whose office is located in Anchorage, staffs the Commission.

What We Do

The Commission adopts regulations to implement the laws governing the practice of real estate in Alaska. The Commission also approves education courses and instructors, makes final licensing decisions and takes disciplinary action against people who violate the licensing laws.

The Commission meets quarterly and offers a public comment period at each meeting. Agendas for upcoming Commission meetings are available on this web site.

We encourage you to review and use the various options presented on this web site.
