Who is the course for?
Any individual over the age of 18 can take the Real Estate Salesperson test–you don’t require any college credits, high school diploma, or GED. Most individuals who obtain a real estate license for the first time don’t have a background in real estate, and it’s not necessary.
A real estate career appeals to a wide range of people, including those changing careers, currently employed individuals looking for a passive income, students, and retirees. To many, the advantage of the real estate field is that it doesn’t mean they must give up their current role or studies.
The 75-hour qualifying course introduces you to the laws you must follow. The real estate brokerage firm you subsequently join will train you in its marketing, sales, rental and other activities. The skills required are similar to those needed for any type of profession: perseverance, hard work, and the desire to succeed.
