We have owned a condo for > 5 years.  The last 2 years it has been a rental property ( investment property).  Under normal circumstances, we would get the capital gain exclusion of 500K.

However, my spouse is classified as a real estate professional and we are married/filing jointly.  Does that mean we lose the capital gains exclusion ?

No, you can still get the exclusion, but you will need to recapture the depreciation you took while it was a rental.
