  • The Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation announced an alternative to paper documents to improve speed of renewals and lower costs.
  • Real estate professionals can obtain their e-license online and download as a PDF or screenshot to a smartphone or tablet.
  • The IDFPR.com/getmylicense site allows professionals to update contact information and renew their license, which is required by the state every two years.

The real estate market’s adaption to the technology age sometimes seems slow and arduous, but the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation (IDFPR) recently made a simple, yet big change to bring the state’s industry into the 21st century.
