Aaron’s Answer

I'm a licensed Qualifying Broker in Alabama, meaning I am the Broker responsible for all of the agents whose licenses I hold. Each state has different requirements ranging from 45 to maybe 120 hours depending on the state of hours of Pre-license classes in order to sit for the state exam. In Alabama our rules are changing starting in 2023 from 60 pre and 30 post license , to 60 pre1 , 45pre 2, then temp license held by a Broker, with 3 months to get a predetermined set of items signed off on in order to obtain an Original Sales Persons License.

Aaron recommends the following next steps:

Look up the Real Estate Commission for the state you are in and check the Licensing requirements.

Dwayne,
Mr. Iyer's answer (his posting) is quite a good answer. Please check it.
But there's a second part to this question that was unanswered (of even unasked), which is how to get started in the BUSINESS of real estate.
By this, I mean, it's not enough just to get a license to start "selling" real estate. The real estate profession is extremely competitive and getting the training to learn how to be successful and make a living is extremely important.
To be clear: the process of getting a license does not prepare you for actually making a living - the actual "selling" of real estate part. Getting a license is just teaches you the regulatory side of real estate, not the business side.
Please start by picking up a book called "21 Things I Wish My Broker Had Told Me."
Secondly, ask for a meeting with some of the top companies in your area's managers, Don't be shy. Ask them flat out what their company would do to help you be successful.
The best companies will have extensive training programs in place to help their new agents succeed. Mentorship and solid, ongoing advice will be critical to your success.
If you connect with good people, the profession can be very rewarding.
Best of luck.
Thank you comment icon Amazing feedback I will purchase the book ASAP Dwayne
