The Florida Real Estate Commission, also known as FREC, is made up of seven members and meets monthly. The commission meeting is usually the third Wednesday of the month and the Tuesday immediately preceding the third Wednesday. The FREC administers and enforces the real estate license law, Chapter 475, Part I, of the Florida Statutes. The Commission also passes rules that enable it to implement its statutorily authorized duties and responsibilities. These rules are contained in Chapter 61J2, of the Florida Administrative Code.
