I think it's a bad idea. I do believe the state has already accomplished that through the Department of Licensing and Regulation.

I haven't seen this done. Though, I think it would make good sense to do it.
I've never seen it done, if I owned a brokerage I would to protect my brand/business. In most states before you get licened they do somekind of Check, in Nevada it even involves giving finerprints and and FBI background check so everyone is at least not a serious criminal.
It is a sign of the times and sadly I think it is necessary these days.
This is probably a smart business practice but I have not seen the precautions in practice.
I dont believe they do, but it would be a great idea.
it's a very good idea....we don't do it.... we needed to dismiss one agent in the past....slick character!!! he didn't want any marketing on him....I think he was on the lam....
No need for me. The state handles background check.
Our state licensing commission runs a background check when a license is issued and every 2 years when they are renewed. If it were not for them doing this then yes I think it is a good idea for a broker to do it.
Arizona DRE does that
Not that I'm aware of. No opinion on the question.
I've never done it.
In North Carolina, the real estate commision requires a background check before they give you your broker's license.
To tell you the truth, I have no idea and have never asked. I'm somewhat neutral on this subject.
