To become a real estate agent in Florida, you must be at least 18 years old and have a high school diploma or GED in order to become licensed in Florida. That’s it! This makes Florida one of the easiest states to become a real estate agent in.
Florida requires all would-be real estate agents to successfully complete a 63 classroom-hours of pre-licensing courses.
As in other states, the exam for the pre-license gives you the opportunity to submit an application for a Florida Real Estate License.
Your application will consist of:
You’ll have to complete another 45 hours of state approved continuing education
at least 45 classroom hours.
Nope! If you are a Florida lawyer you are exempt from pre-licensing requirements, but you still have to do the post-licensing requirements.
Real estate and broker courses are valid for two years after the course completion date.
Not immediately. You have to pay your dues. Some Florida Brokers will require you to be a Realtor. A Realtor is a real estate agent (or broker) who agrees to work within a set of guidelines that the Board sets. These guidelines are mainly just good ethical behavior that are more clear and spelled out than state licensing authorities.
