Is there anything I need before getting started?

Before you get started, it is important to make sure that you are eligible to earn your real estate salesperson license in the state of North Carolina.

You must:

  • Be at least 18 years of age
  • Be a United States citizen, a non-citizen national or a qualified alien under federal law, or have a lawful presence in the U.S. and be authorized to work in the U.S. in the real estate brokerage field. [Note: A holder of a U.S. Permanent Resident Card (“Green Card”) is a “qualified alien.” Work authorization in the U.S. for most other aliens requires a U.S. immigration visa (rather than a visitor visa) and/or an Employment Authorization Document from the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service that permits work in the real estate brokerage field.];
  • Have a Social Security Number
  • Satisfy the Commission that the applicant possesses the requisite character for licensure. Click here for more information on the Character and Fitness review.
