Real Estate Agent School :: A Career In Real Estate
The first step in starting a real estate career is to sign up for real estate agent school, also known as pre-licensing real estate courses.
Every state in the US has a different licensing authority, which means you need a real estate license specific to the state where you want to work. If you want to work in more than one state, you’ll have to have more than one license (that’s rare except in cases where people live close to a border, like Washington DC / Northern Virginia).
There are a variety of real estate agent school options, and most of them are delivered in an online format these days. There are still some classroom options, but most people prefer the convenience of the online schools because they allow you to work at your own pace.
Different states also have different terminology when it comes to levels of licensing. Some states call all of their licensees “brokers” and other states separate “salesperson” from “broker” because they have different requirements for the different levels. In the states where there are different levels, they usually require several years of experience and/or more thorough education in order to obtain the higher level of license. Most people start with the entry-level license and that’s as far as they ever need to go. The higher level of license is usually reserved for those who want to open or manage their own real estate brokerage, which only makes sense after you have a few years of experience anyway.
