Florida Statute 475.11 lists the following people exempt from needing a license:
"(2) Any individual, corporation, partnership, trust, joint venture, or other entity which sells, exchanges, or leases its own real property; however, this exemption shall not be available if and to the extent that an agent, employee, or independent contractor paid a commission or other compensation strictly on a transactional basis is employed to make sales, exchanges, or leases to or with customers in the ordinary course of an owner’s business of selling, exchanging, or leasing real property to the public; "
It sounds like if you are the principal/owner then you would be off the hook, but if you were just an employee hired exclusively to do RE transactions on a commission then you would need a license. I am not a lawyer.
