Welcome to your exciting new career in real estate! We’re here to give you the best foundation possible to set you up for long-term success. Let’s review which course will get you started.
A real estate career begins with a broker’s license. According to Illinois law, a broker’s license is necessary in order to provide assistance to others which is in any way intended for the sale or lease of real estate, for compensation. This includes the representation of clients in the negotiation of real estate sales contracts or leases, as well as the issuance of advertisements for the sale, purchase or lease of real estate.
The required 75 hours of Pre-Licensing is broken up into two parts: the 60 Hour Broker Pre-License Topics course and the 15 Hour Applied Real Estate Principles, interactive course. This course satisfies the 75 hour broker licensing requirement.
