Obtain a Real Estate License
To obtain a real estate license, you must first qualify for and pass a written examination. Those who pass the examination are provided a license application which must be submitted to and approved by the Department of Real Estate. General license requirements include: At least 18 years of age, proof of legal presence, and full disclosure.
The salesperson license is required of individuals who conduct licensed real estate activities as described in the Real Estate Law under the supervision of a licensed broker. A license may also be obtained by a person who does not immediately intend to be employed by a broker. However, a salesperson without an employing broker may not perform acts requiring a real estate license. The completion of three college-level courses is required.
The broker license requires a two-year minimum of full-time licensed salesperson experience within the last five years or the equivalent, along with the completion of eight college-level courses.
Detailed licensing information can be found at the Department of Real Estate.
