What do I have to do to become a real estate agent?

Questions about a career in real estate in MassachusettsYour first step is to take the real estate pre-licensing course. This course consists of 40 hours of classes covering information on property rights and ownership, condominiums and coops, contract and deeds, financing, brokerage, appraisal, fair housing and consumer protection laws, and Massachusetts license law. The costs for this course runs about $350. When you have completed the course you will receive a certificate which entitles you to take the Massachusetts Real Estate Salesperson's exam. The exam consist of approximately 120 multiple choice questions. When you pass the exam you immediately receive your license and you may join a real estate firm. Some firms may hire you before you receive your license, but you cannot conduct any real estate business nor talk to any customers or clients about real estate until you have passed the exam and are licensed. Total cost to become a real estate agent including classes, testing and license fee is approximately $500. If you come to work for Armstrong Field Real Estate after obtaining your license, we will reimburse you for the cost of your pre-licensing course.
