John’s Answer

I know people with bachelors degree and people with just a high school diploma who are real estate agents. There IS a test you have to pass, but the test is the smallest part of being a real estate agent. Being a real estate agent involves running your own business or franchise usually.

If you are interested in becoming a real estate agent, you might want to reach out to people who are recruiting for the job and just ask what they look for. Look on Indeed or you can try just googling it.

Boyd’s Answer

I have MANY friends who are real estate agents. I myself am a loan officer, and the path is much the same, and loan officers and real estate agents work hand in hand a lot.

To be a real estate agent you just take a course, which you can complete online self-paced, or in person. You just research the requirements for the state you would like to be licensed, as the state requirements are all different and require different hours. Once you take and pass the course, you must pass the state test, then you can submit for licensure. But you must find a real estate brokerage to work under as this brokerage holds your license so you can do business as a realtor.

To be a realtor does not require any advanced degrees. It can benefit you to have a degree as you can learn very valuable knowledge that will help you succeed in the industry, such as marketing, advertising, communication, etc. but you can certainly learn those things outside of the classroom.

Hope this helps!

It depends on each state but usually you need to study 40 hours then pass a test to get your license. I suggest you use a Keller Williams broker their training is the best and will help you be successful. Often they will pay for your school and test.
