How to become a real estate agent?

Updated: Jun 14

Real estate agents specializing in luxury real estate often do business with, very wealthy individuals. We are talking about persons with assets of $30 million or more. These are some of the richest people in the world—a relatively small group, but still growing.

Being a real estate agent offers a great variety. With different customers and different houses, you're not going to do the same thing every day. You can meet and work with many people, be your own boss, and enjoy the satisfaction of assisting buyers and sellers through one of life's key milestones.

The New York State Department (NYDOS) requires completion of the following steps to order a real estate salesperson's license in New York City:

Understand what your government requires.

Select a real estate school.

Complete your pre-licensing coursework.

Study for your real estate pre-licensing exam.

Apply for and schedule your state real estate exam.

Choose a broker.

Take your license examination.

Become a member of professional real estate organizations.

Complete the required real estate course after obtaining the license.

Start your real estate business.

Getting into real estate might be a rewarding career. Not only financially, but you also have the opportunity to meet a lot of people and work on various properties every-day.

It is very satisfying when you can help your customers find their dream home or find good buyers for their property.

Honesty, hard work and constant concern for your customer's best interests are key to your long-term success.
