Who is the course for?

In order to qualify for licensure as a real estate salesperson, an applicant must have satisfactorily completed a 75-hour salesperson qualifying education course in real estate approved by the Secretary of State, and have passed a qualifying examination administered by the Department of State. An applicant who completed the 45-hour salesperson qualifying course prior to July 1, 2008 may complete the 30-hour remedial course in order to qualify for licensure.

A Real Estate Salesperson (Agent) is hired to facilitate a property purchase, sale or rental transaction on behalf of their client for compensation under the guidance and supervision of a sponsoring Broker.

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.
