What to expect from a career in real estate…

What are the steps to becoming a real estate agent?

Three Courses

Before the state will assign you an exam date to take the Real Estate Sales Associate or Broker license you will need to complete, with a reputable real estate school, three pre-requisite courses.

State Exam

Once you have completed your three pre-requisite courses you can apply for an exam date with the state. The state will offer you a few locations at which to take your exam.

Broker Affiliaton

Once you have passed your Sales Associate license you will need to select a brokerage with which to “hang” your license. This is a big decision as not all brokerages are the same. The first step in this process should be to identify a brand – like Coldwell Banker. Next you will identify a brokerage – such as Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage. There are many brokerages under the Coldwell Banker brand, but Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage is the largest and is owned and operated by NRT LLC, who in turn is owned by Realogy Corporation.
