Why not disclose? I’ve been licensed a few times in two states. Although I downplayed it, I never noticed that disclosing the license had any effect on negotiations or affected the seller?s opinion of me in any way. Even now, when I tell RE agents that I’m a former licensee, it cuts down on the B.S.
If you plan on stealing from widows and orphans, or the elderly, it might not be a great idea to keep the license.
The big turn-off for me was that I never wanted to do floor time for a broker, and it was harder to play a dumb RE innocent when I was stamping the contracts with disclosure information.
