Tip of the Week – Agent License Number

With recent TRID requirements, you’ll likely need to occasionally look up another agent’s license number. NorthstarMLS and its shareholder Associations do not have a license number database that we can ensure is accurate. Your best bet is to use State online resources: the Minnesota Department of Commerce’s Pulse Portal, or the Wisconsin Credential/License Search. Click here to see a printable PDF with instructions. We have also outlined the steps for you below.

MDC Pulse Portal
1. Go to www.pulseportal.com
2. Choose Program: Minnesota Department of Commerce
3. Choose Board: Real Estate
4. Click on search Licensees

5. Put in Last and First Name, Click Next to run the search

Wisconsin Credential/License Search
1. Go to: https://app.wi.gov/licensesearch
2. Click on Health/Business Individual/Credential

3. Put in last and first name of agent you are searching for
4. Click the Search button to run the search (Note: Agent and broker searches are separate, so if you can’t find the name of the person under agent, try broker.)
