What are real estate licensing requirements in NY?

Can anybody tell me what the requirements are to become a licenced realtor? Overview summary?

Answer #1


Licensing requirements vary from state to state, but all require prospective salespeople and brokers to pass a written exam.

Some states allow students to take pre-licensing educational courses accredited by the state licensing agency before they qualify to sit for the exam. In other states, students can take these educational courses within a specified time after being licensed.

In order to obtain a broker’s or sales agent associated license, more than half the states specify special education and/or experience or their equivalents.

Good luck!
