The birthplace of country and blues has become far more than the agrarian state it once was. Tennessee's major urban centers are important cities with significant economies. And Tennessee fully supports economic growth and development -- which may be why it doesn't impose too much regulation on business. Unlike many states, Tennessee gives counties and cities significant leeway to decide on their own regulations -- often making state licenses required only at the discretion of local jurisdictions.
In Tennessee, real Estate businesses including Agencies, Brokerages and Leasing Companies need state real estate licenses. State authorities ensure these businesses are properly registered for accountability and that principals understand applicable laws and regulations. In many cases, cities and counties add additional licensing requirements.
