Then you won’t want to miss this.

If you’re anything like me you’ve been asking, “How do I get my real estate license?” And, that’s a great question.

In every state it’s different, and to become a Realtor in Texas it takes the longest amount of time, but it’s so worth it.

This will be a complete breakdown of how to get your real estate license in Texas so you can become a real estate agent, but this will also help you learn how to do so in any state.

Not big on reading? Then watch this video:

How to get your real estate license step-by-step.

Step 1: You need to be at least 18 years old.

The TREC commission requires everyone to be at least 18 before getting their license, and to also follow a few other criteria. You may also want to ponder getting a Fitness Determination before applying for your license.

Step 2: Register and then complete 180 hours of required pre-licensing education:

Before you can get your license you’ll need to perform 180 hours of pre-licensing prior to getting your license to become a Realtor. Here in Texas, it takes 180 to do so, but every state is different. You can take your classes online here, and you’ll save 20% using this code:

Step 3: Think about who will be your sponsoring broker

Once you complete your 180 hours (or required hours based on the state you’re in) you’ll need to have a sponsoring broker so you can hang your license and call you’re self a Realtor. I do suggest you start exploring these options prior to passing your finals test. You can learn more here about the fast-growing brokerage ever to exist:

Step 4: Submit your forms and fees to TREC

Once you completed your required 180 hours of pre-licensing education you’ll need to send over your documents to TREC.
