The Alaska Real Estate Commission consists of five real estate brokers and two public members. These members are appointed by the Governor and confirmed by the legislature. Their mission is simple: protect the public interest by licensing practitioners
and enforcing the established standards, promoting professional excellence in the real estate industry, and supporting and encouraging licensees.
One of the ways the Commission upholds its mission statement is by adopting regulations to implement the law governing the real estate market in Alaska. The Commission is also responsible for approving educational courses and instructors, taking disciplinary
action against those who violate the licensing laws, and making final licensing decisions.
The Commission meets quarterly, and the meetings are open to the public where there is the option to take part in the public comment period. Their website, commerce.alaska.gov contains much more information about the Alaska Real Estate Commission, as
well as a subscribe option to receive their electronic mail on news topics like meeting agendas, position statements, and a notice of regulation changes. Through their website they also provide all the necessary application forms you may need to apply
for licensing, apply to take their education courses, current statutes and regulations, and much much more.
