Yes you need to be an agent or broker to be a property manager in Pennsylvania. You are representing someone with regard to real estate. So, it makes sense that you need to be licensed.
Becoming an agent is not difficult, but to get your license you need to work for a broker who supervises you and they will take a healthy cut of whatever you earn.
That’s my interpretation of the law too in PA. You can only manage your own properties without a license.
You not only need a license to manage for others, you have to work under a Broker. After a certain period of time and meeting certain requirements, you can upgrade to a Broker license and then work on your own.
