Yes, if he/she is licensed in those states. I know many agents that work 2-3 states, especially in DC.

  First question:   Probably.  But I would see a real estate attorney, and/or check with the Real Estate Commission in each state that is involved in the story.

  Follow up question:  if he isn't licensed in the state, then he cannot legally do business in the state (at least here in Florida).  So, no.

If I'm reading this correctly, you are asking if Broker Bob is a Broker in Alaska and Nevada can you hang both your Nevada and Alaska licenses with him?  I believe so, but have never investigated.  It may be that they have a different company name for each state.

Robert Vegas Bob Swetz works in those two states from my example and may be able to better answer the question.

 

As to the follow-up, your broker must be licensed in that state for him to do business.

Quinn, I'm a broker in two states and I have agents who are under my license in both states. I'm not sure what operating means if you are not performing real estate transactions. Even finding a rental for someone is a real estate transaction. In that case, you need to be affiliated with a broker in that state.

You must be licensed in the same state(s) as your broker in order to work in those states.

If you are licensed in California but not Nevada and your broker is licensed in both states, you would not be able to work in Nevada unless you obtained a Nevada license.

Quinn Eliason Yes, as long as both you and the broker are licensed in these States. If you do not do real estate transactions you do no have to be licensed. I don't see the point to this though unless you are doing non-related licensing activities.

Both you and the broker need to be licensed in those states, he as the broker and you as an agent. So the answer to the first question is yes, subject to licensing; to the second, no. You can be affiliated with a different broker in another state if that broker has a local broker license and you have a local agent license.
