How can I become a future real estate agent?

I can study or read articles online or even books that involves tips for practice. This mean I will be able to set myself up in advance for when I get older I can prepare myself for the test!

Thank you comment icon In my experience, real estate doesn't have a lot of books. I found looking at the State real estate commission is good. They send quarterly newsletters that keep you up-to-date on changes. Some corporations will share their own newsletters, but those are hit-or-miss. Robert Butler

Real Estate courses could be available at your nearby college. When I was in college, I chose Real Estate as my minor and discovered that the content was incredibly useful. One of the classes was specifically designed to get us ready for the licensing test, which was quite helpful.

Ann’s Answer

There are real estate schools to prepare you for the exam. Some are weeks long, some are on weekends. It is a rewarding career - I have friends in the business. Things to consider:

You will be an independent contractor, so benefits won't be included if you're an agent.

It takes a long time to develop your "book of business", so you may not make any money for a while once you're licensed.

After you've been in this role for a while, if you want, you can become a broker which requires more training and certification/licensing.

And as mentioned by others, google how to become an agent in your state.

Good luck!

Deborah’s Answer

To be completely transparent, I am not a real estate agent. However, I suggest that you search "how to become a real estate agent" on Google, along with the name of your state. Each state has unique requirements, and you can find articles explaining these requirements, how to meet them, and links to online courses that can help you prepare.

Before doing that, you might want to visit open houses and strike up conversations with real estate agents who are present. You can ask them for advice and guidance.

It's worth noting that many people have transitioned from other careers, such as law or business, into real estate. So, you might find it helpful to read non-specific books on topics like contract negotiations, sales techniques, negotiation strategies, and closing deals. Additionally, consider exploring real estate and property law books or articles. You can search "real estate law" on Google and see what resources are available.

WARREN’s Answer

You could contact many of your local Real Estate offices and ask them if they are looking for any help for the summer. You could answer phones, support closings, take photos of properties, etc. That would be a great way to learn the business from the ground up.

Eileen’s Answer

A great way to learn the ropes is by finding an experienced real estate agent who needs some extra hands. You can offer to help them with various tasks in exchange for the opportunity to learn from them. Some of the tasks you can assist with include cleaning and setting up homes for open houses, organizing data, sending emails and regular mail for marketing, and even managing their website. This hands-on experience will give you a fantastic insight into the world of real estate and help you build valuable skills."
