As a New York real estate school, we frequently get asked how to contact the NY DOS. Some refer to it as the Real Estate Commission, others refer to it as the Real Estate Department, but officially it is the NY Department of State. Most answers to licensee questions are already answered on the DOS website (links below), so be sure to check there first. It may be more efficient than waiting on hold. Below are helpful links and contact details:
NY DOS Real Estate Salesperson website.
NY DOS Real Estate Broker website.
For help with renewing your real estate license online via New York’s elicense portal or general information, call the NY DOS customer support number at (518) 474-4429. We recommend calling first thing in the morning before “the line” gets too long.
NY DOS email: email@example.com
We wrote a separate article outlining the latest real estate license renewal requirements for ALL New York real estate brokers and real estate salespersons. Don’t let your real estate license expire!
