What is the name of your state?What is the name of your state? CALIFORNIA
I'm as new as they come to this forum but am appreciating all the great advice. However, it seems as though my subject is quite unique...
In 1999, I passed the real estate principles course, applied for the R.E. exam, passed the exam, submitted the application and the $700 fee to the CA dept of R.E., and was denied my license due to my past criminal history which included a conviction for passport fraud in 1989-90 and various other smaller offenses, but the fraud being the prominent case that, I believe, was the reason for my denial.
I was told that I could appeal... I didn't. I just gave up on trying and left the profession.
Now, 6 years later, I'm back in the profession and hoping to try for a license again.
Knowing that I'll probably get denied again, I hope I could get a few questions answered:
1. Is it possible to get a restricted license?
2. If so, what rules usually apply to a person with a restricted license?
3. I'm working to stay afloat right now... If I need legal assistance, is there a cheaper route I can take than paying retainer to some attorney and getting gouged for the little money I currently make.
4. Would anyone out there like to help me on this in a pro-bono status with promise to pay when my pipeline starts filling and cash starts to flow?
Please let me know...
