You’ve come to the right place if you’re wondering how to get your real estate license. The steps vary from state to state, but usually involve minimum age and education/experience requirements, as well as application and other state specific fees/details.

Most states and provinces require a sales agent to have already received their real estate license before joining a brokerage, while in a few, a new agent must obtain a sponsoring brokerage prior to pursuing a license. Licensing requirements involve extensive coursework and passing a state exam.
