  • These credits must be in the form the six TREC mandated core real estate courses. If you don’t have the proper amount of education requirements, most of the providers have courses you can take to satisfy those requirements. 
  • The 1st step is a Principles Course or pre-license course(s). This courses will teach you all about real estate including rules and regulations in your state, how to conduct a sale, etc. 
  • The 2nd step once you have completed the mandatory licensing courses is to study for the state required exam.  This second step is the most important step as you need as much information as possible when you take your state exam. 
  • The last step is to register to take your final exam with the state. This is where all of your hard work and preparation pays off. Texas has a minimum passing score that must be reached in order for you to get your license.

  • With the real estate industry booming , you’re choosing a lifelong career and one where you can be successful as long as you work hard. I’m sure you have heard about friends and family members opening a real estate business together.

  • The job outlook is strong and as long as people are buying and selling houses, leasing residences or commercial properties you’ll have a great career. 
  • Agents typically earn a commission for every house they sell or lease. Either they are helping a buyer find a home or they are helping a seller sell their home.  Some of the wealthiest individuals in the world all hold a stake in real estate.
