Can an agent share a commission with an agent who is licensed in another state?

Question:  Can an agent share a commission with an agent who is licensed in another state?
Answer:  Yes. A broker licensed in Texas can share a commission with a broker from another state as long as that broker is licensed under the laws of the state in which they practice. For example, a Texas agent can share a commission with an agent licensed in California as long as the agent in California has the appropriate license to practice real estate in that state.  The one requirement is that the Texas licensed agent must be the person handling all the negotiations in the state of Texas.
