Is there anything I need before getting started?

To get started on the entire licensing process, you'll need to make sure you meet the state’s qualifications to become a real estate salesperson. If you're in the clear to take our courses, make sure you meet the minimum system requirements.


1. Make sure you're qualified to become a real estate agent first.

Before you begin taking your pre-licensing courses, you'll first need to make sure you meet the State of New York’s qualifications for becoming a real estate salesperson.


Here are the requirements you need to meet:

  1. You can get started on your pre-license course work, but you’ll need to be 18 years old to apply for your real estate salesperson license.
  2. You are a US Citizen or a legal, permanent resident.
  3. You have no felony, sex offense, or sexually violent offense convictions.

If you have any misdemeanors or felonies on your record, check out this article to learn about your options.


Another thing to keep in mind are all of the startup fees for becoming a real estate agent.


2. Meet the system requirements to take our courses.
