Welcome to your one stop shop for information on real estate licensing. The specific steps for acquiring a real estate license may vary from state to state, but typically involve minimum age and educational requirements as well as state-specific application requirements and associated fees. In many states, new sales agents are expected to secure their real estate license prior to affiliating with a brokerage. In others, new agents may be required to secure sponsorship from a brokerage before pursuing their license. In ALL cases though, licensing requirements include extensive coursework and passage of a state exam.
Keller Williams Realty associates in both the United States and Canada are required to maintain memberships in their local, state, and national Realtor associations. On top of that, some local real estate associations may require additional training and/or certifications on legal and ethical issues as well as the use of their systems. Finally, most Keller Williams market centers have adopted free KWU coursework and/or fast-start programs that new agents must complete within their first 90 days. If it seems like a lot – it can be – but it’s all designed to make sure you’re protected and trained to give you the best shot at success.
