Just look around you, real estate transactions are happening all the time! Businesses are opening new locations by signing commercial leases, first-time home buyers are purchasing their very first home, apartment complexes are opening with property managers greeting their happy new tenants as they move in – the world of real estate is a huge industry with so many careers to choose from.

Due to the size and scope of the real estate industry many different real estate careers are available such as appraisers, home inspectors, title attorneys, insurance agents – and of course real estate agents and brokers.

Typical examples of career opportunities in real estate that would likely require a license include:

  • Real Estate Brokerage
  • Sales of Real Property
  • Property Management
  • Commercial Leasing
  • Commercial Management
  • Investment Consulting
  • Referrals off of Real Estate Transactions
  • Appraisal*
  • Mortgage Brokerage*
  • Home Inspection*
  • Insurance*

*Note: Some specialties may require a specific license to practice such as appraisal, mortgage, and home inspection

In most states, such as Louisiana and Mississippi, you will need a real estate license in order to work as a professional real estate agent. Since as a real estate agent you will be representing another party in most cases, there are professional duties and responsibilities you will need to learn in order to practice real estate the right way.

Real Estate School

Just like getting a driver’s license you will need a real estate license before you can really “hit the road” and get started. In order to obtain a license, you will need to complete a real estate course at an accredited real estate school and then pass a state real estate license exam by your states real estate commission .  With Donaldson Education, you can do that online or live, in person training.

In addition, there are usually license applications and other requirements that need to be completed with your state’s licensing agency.  After getting your license, some states require that you take a post licensing course and all states require continuing education or CE.

HOW TO GET A REAL ESTATE LICENSE

Your first step is usually to enroll in a real estate school and complete your real estate license requirements. Once you graduate real estate school, you will need apply for a real estate license.

Once your license application is accepted, the next step in the process is to register for your state’s license exam. Passing your real estate license exam is key, which is why Donaldson Educational Services designs all of our courses so that you can pass the test.

Finally, many states will require that you find a real estate brokerage to sponsor your license so that you can begin working in the real estate industry! The most successful real estate agents use real estate coaches to learn the techniques and disciplines necessary above what the state requires for a license.

Remember, each state has its own licensing requirements so make sure to check our site for the specifics in your home state. For pre-license requirements in Louisiana and Mississippi click below:
