Obtaining a Real Estate License

Obtaining a real estate license is not difficult, if you know what to expect, and can fulfill the requirements. How you get a real estate license will vary from state to state, but will usually involve minimum age requirements, certain education and/or experience requirements, applications and fees, and other state-specific details. Licensing requirements typically involve coursework and passing a state test. Some states also require post-licensing coursework after you earn your license; and most states require continuing education throughout your career to keep your license active.

It's important to know the relevant information from your state before you get too deep in preparing for your real estate exam. We have outlined the requirements below for the states we serve along with links to our real estate schools for you to start the process.
