Given the fact that California is home to some of the most highly sought after real estate properties, I have decided to launch an information website about various aspects of real estate in California. Some of the issues I would like to address in this site include investing in real estate, selling real estate, government involvement in real estate, and the role of real estate agents.

I have dedicated this page to government involvement in the real estate market in California. Therefore, I will be providing some information about the California Department of Real Estate, as stated by the department itself.

Historically, the California Legislature enacted the nation's first real estate license law in 1917. Providing for the licensing and regulation of real estate licensees, this law continues to serve as a model for similar legislation in many other states. The California Department of Real Estate (DRE) continues to enjoy a nationwide reputation as a leader in real estate licensing and regulation.

One particularly helpful aspect of the Department of Real Estate in California is how they help the consumer. For example, this real estate governing agency provides consumers the opportunity to research the license statuses of real estate agents, real estate brokers, and real estate corporations, right through its website.
