Hello,

If you had this case set aside, it should show on your criminal history as a dismissal on a background check. That's better than a reduction. Note, however, that whether you go on to get this reduced or not, depending upon the wording in the application for your real estate license, you may still be required to disclose the fact that you had been formerly convicted of a felony offense. Nothing is ever completely hidden from the government.
