Tips for Pre-Licensing and Success in Real Estate

Tips for Pre-Licensing and Success in Real Estate

I will share valuable tips for those considering getting their pre-licensing and entering the real estate industry. As a real estate team leader with Re/Max Presidential and 23 years of experience in South Florida, I have inspired and guided many successful real estate agents. Whether you choose to attend a real estate school or take an online course, building relationships and understanding exam strategies are crucial for success. Let's delve into these tips in more detail.

Attend a Real Estate School:
Opt for attending a physical real estate school rather than solely relying on online courses. Real estate is a people-oriented business, and by attending a school, you can network with classmates and ask questions directly to the instructor. Building relationships and developing communication skills early on is essential for future success in the industry.

Read Exam Questions Carefully:
Whether it's a school exam or the state licensing exam, always read the questions multiple times. The wording of questions can be tricky, and by reading them thoroughly, you can avoid falling into common traps. Take your time and ensure you understand the questions before selecting an answer. Often, the real answer may differ from your initial assumption.

Complete State Application Early:
Once you join a real estate school, immediately begin the process of obtaining permission from the state by completing the required fingerprinting and application. Many individuals make the mistake of delaying this step until after completing their schooling. Unfortunately, this can lead to a significant backlog and unnecessary waiting time. By taking care of the application early, you'll have it approved and ready when you pass the school exam, allowing you to smoothly transition to the state exam.

Allocate Sufficient Time for the State Exam:
During the state licensing exam, allocate the full three hours and avoid rushing through it. Resist the temptation to finish early and leave the computer. Instead, take your time, carefully read each question multiple times, and mark any questions you're unsure about for later review. Changing answers hastily can lead to unnecessary mistakes. Utilize the full time available to ensure you approach each question with focus and attention.


By following these tips, you can navigate the pre-licensing process and set yourself up for success in the real estate industry. Attending a physical real estate school, reading exam questions carefully, completing the state application early, and allocating sufficient time for the state exam are key steps to achieve your goals.
