Reminders for Managing Brokers Terminating and Adding Agents

Managing brokers, below are guidelines for terminating an agent’s license through CAR, as well as adding/terminating an agent’s license for IDFPR if their portal is not working.

Notifying car of agent’s license termination

While IDFPR has changed their internal process for the termination of licensees from your roster, the Chicago Association of REALTORS® still requires that a signed off license is accompanied with each termination request.

As it generally takes the IDFPR time to process terminations and for their system to update your roster, having the signed off license is necessary for CAR staff to immediately be able to terminate that licensee from your roster. Additionally, we add the copy of the signed off license to the member’s account as proof you have made this termination request.

Should you have any questions, please contact our Member Care staff at

Notifying IDFPR of new/terminated licenses if portal is down

If IDFPR’s portal is not working properly, here’s how to submit requests:

  • Email a copy of a Sponsor Card to IDFPR:
  • IDFPR will enter the change into the system pending the payment.
  • Mail a copy of the sponsor card with a paper check.
  • IDFPR will process the payment and the change will become permanent.

If a NEW Applicant submits an application and the Managing Broker receives an email asking to approve them, they should simply forward that email to writing that they APPROVE the addition of the person in question.

Similarly, terminations may be emailed to
