  • What is the difference between a real estate agent and a real estate broker?

    • A real estate agent doesn't have as much education and experience as a real estate broker. They can eventually go back to school and continue serving as an agent for a few more years before pursuing a real estate broker license. Many real estate agents work under a real estate broker.

  • Do I need a Bachelor's degree to be a real estate agent?

    • Real estate agents do not need to have a college degree. You need to be at least 18 years old, have a social security number, and meet a few other basic requirements.

  • What jobs can I get with a real estate license?

    • Other jobs to consider if you have a real estate license include leasing agent, commercial or residential sales, real estate broker, property manager or a showing assistant. Your knowledge of real estate will be beneficial to any of these career options.

  • Do I have to sit in a classroom to take my real estate courses?

    • Absolutely not! You can learn and study when it fits your schedule and from the comfort of your own home, your favorite coffee shop, on your lunch break or when your kids are napping. There are many programs that offer online classes as well as in-person options.

  • How do I work as a part-time real estate agent?

    • Many people find that working part-time as a real estate agent allows them to have the flexibility they need without sacrificing their current commitments. You’ll need to complete all your state’s requirements for licensure, obtain your license, and then find a brokerage that is on board with your part-time schedule.
      Make sure your chosen schedule is compatible with your clients’ availability, which is usually evenings and weekends. Being available during the times most convenient for your clients will result in happier clients and more sales.

  • What does the daily life of a real estate agent look like?

    • The daily life of a real estate agent is varied and looks different from day-to-day. One day you might be meeting with clients and showing properties, and the next you might be in the office completing paperwork and answering emails. Every day as a real estate agent will present you with exciting opportunities to learn and grow your leads. Many agents thrive from being able to have a hand in every aspect of their business, from answering phone calls to setting up open houses.

  • Can I be a real estate agent in more than one state?

    • Yes. Each state has its own requirements for real estate licensure that you’ll need to fulfill in order to become licensed in that state. But first, check to see if the additional state you’re looking to become licensed in has a reciprocal agreement with your current state—meaning you could potentially get to skip a few steps in the process.

  • How many years do I have to be a real estate agent before I can become a broker?

    • For a real estate agent to become a real estate broker they must:
      1) have two years of full-time licensed salesperson experience within the last five years or two years of full-time equivalent non-licensed experience, or 2) have a degree from a four-year university with a major or minor in real estate.

  • How do real estate agents get hired?

    • Real estate agents must join a brokerage and successfully market themselves in order to start getting clients. This may involve developing a social media presence, attending networking events to meet potential clients or working as an assistant to a successful agent.

  • How much does a real estate agent make?

    • The average yearly income for a real estate agent can range from $49,500 to $150,000.* One of the large benefits of real estate is that you are not limited to an hourly wage or a yearly salary. There is no limit to your potential income.
