Why do I need to be fingerprinted?

The Tennessee Real Estate Commission requires all applicants for an affiliate broker license to get fingerprinted as part of a background check required of all applicants. Applicants are requested to use electronic fingerprint submission. While fingerprinting is not required in order to take the state exam, it is required for as part of your application for affiliate broker.

IndentoGO will automatically transmit your fingerprints to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation as well as the Federal Bureau of Investigation for processing. The Tennessee Real Estate Commission will receive the background report once complete.

You will need to attach a copy of the receipt from your electronic fingerprint submission to your affiliate broker application.

Instructions for how to proceed with electronic fingerprinting can be found on the Commission’s Electronic Fingerprint Submission document.
