Wisconsin Property Management
A real estate license is required to provide brokerage services, which include the promotion of real estate rental or leasing as well as lease negotiation and drafting. Brokers must have proper agency authority (typically a WB-37 Exclusive Listing Contract for Lease of Real Property or the WRA Property Management Agreement) to provide property management services.
