eAccessNY is an occupational licensing management system for New York real estate professionals. It provides real estate brokers, salespersons, and the public, with access to 24-hour online services through the Department of State (DOS) website.
For those who hold a current or recently expired real estate salesperson or broker license, an eAccessNY account has been created for you by the DOS. Most licensees have received a temporary password from the DOS. Some have not. But everyone must first activate their account to perform online transactions. Whether you have received a temporary password or not, go to the DOS website:http://www.dos.state.ny.us/, and click on the Real Estate Professionals page to activate your account. You will create an ID and password. Licensees can use eAccessNY to renew their licenses and access other information.
If you are new to real estate licensure, you will need to create an ID and password in order to take your real estate exam, whether you intend to become a salesperson or a broker. Once your account is created you can apply to take your state exam. You can also apply for a real estate license online once you have completed your requirements. The DOS has created very easy instructions to help you through the activation process.
In addition, all real estate course providers should create an eAccessNY account. This account allows course providers to download certain forms, and renew continuing education courses.
