Steve’s Answer

2 years would be ideal as this will give you basic Business Administration and Personal Interaction skills when dealing with Buyers and Sellers in the market. Suggest a AAS in Business Administration (or Marketing, Management, Accounting) degree in your local community college. Suggest you shadow a local real estate agent for a week or a couple of days to get some confidence that this is the type of work you would like to pursue.

I'm a P.T. Realtor in Texas and I've enjoyed doing a few deals which have been lucrative.

Follow your passion and enjoy!

Technically you don't need any college. You need to take a course and pass an exam - it was 2 weeks in NY state about 15 years ago. Likely varies by state but the licensing course covers what you need for the test. All that being said, maybe go talk to a broker in your area about the pros and cons of working in the field. There are colleges that offer courses in it now. If it is an interest, and you are ambitious, and you are a people person & you enjoy sales it would be a great way to learn about the market and potentially make some money and low barrier to entry if you are hardworking and smart.

Audra recommends the following next steps:

Speak with broker or agent in your geographic area

You do not need to have college courses to become a real estate agent. In most states you take a 40 hour course pass the state exam. After you join a board and you maintain your license by taking continued education classes every year.

You dont need a degree to be a realtor. Self study and a good business acumen coupled with mentorship. Real estate licenes are self study in the US.
