No. As of May 5, 2017, the State of Maryland does not require Property Managers to be licensed in any way, including a real estate license. This is something that the Maryland Real Estate Commission (MREC) would like to become a reality, but it has not been enacted into law by the General Assembly in Annapolis. At this point, it is highly unlikely that such a law could be enacted until the 2017 legislative session. DMS Properties, LLC ... Residential Real Estate Services is an advocate of such legislation and will lobby for its passage if it is ever introduced.
What this means, technically, is thatproperty managers are not subject to the laws administered by the MREC. Presumably, the only recourse for homeowners who wish to file a complaint regarding property management services (if the property manager is not a licensed real estate agent) would be in the Courts.
DMS Properties, LLC ... Residential Real Estate Services requires that everyone who affiliates with us be Real Estate Agents licensed by the State of Maryland if they will serve in a role where they deal directly with homeowners, landlords or tenants. We believe that the mandatory training that is required makes us better at what we do to serve our clients.

Residential Real Estate Services, you can review the carreer information that we have posted or Contact us today.

If you are a homeowner looking for property management services, we recommend that you hire a Property Manager who is a Real Estate Agent licensed in Maryland.
