Reciprocity means that if you are already licensed in real estate in another state and in good standing with the licensing body of that state, Georgia will issue you a license without requiring you to go through the prelicense process again.
Depending on the policy of your original licensing state, Georgia may issue you a license straight off with no additional requirements OR they may require you to take and pass the state portion (50 questions) of the licensing exam.
Why make you take the state exam?
Each state has its own unique license laws, regulations, customs and practices. Understanding these differences is necessary in order to conduct yourself and your business within the guidelines for each state in which you are licensed.
