Ask people who have been and still remain with the firm. There is a huge difference in a good training firm and a social organization.

What state are you about to be licensed in?

Even the NC REC is telling firms to not place Provisional Brokers....


Yes, I am from NC, and thank you, great advice!
Was honestly going to wait, but will take your advice.

It is smart to get it out of the way, since you have to do it sooner or later.
Every year, some number of provisional brokers miss the deadline for their classes and have to retrench.

Cart before the horse here. You should be focusing on the test and pass it before looking ahead and worrying about what broker to go with. Pass the test and they will be calling you for interviews.

Okay, I've finished all the classes, printed my certifcate, looked to schedule a test, and it appears that in California, at least.. I must apply for my license before testing.. Somehow that seems insane to me. Do I doubt that I can pass the exam, no.. But, now to have to wait 6 weeks while the state vets me seems ludicrous.. This was all that I could gleen from google, and if I am wrong please tell me. My fingerprints are also already on file with the DOJ as I was a licensed professional in another field.. It took them 6 attempts to get clear prints.. Are those not good enough?? So many questions.. I'd be grateful for any answers!!!

Seems minor, but practice proof-reading anything you write for spelling and other errors.

In IL we no longer have an "agent" license (other than for just leasing). Since 2012 it's either broker or managing broker. So yes, we all have to become brokers right away.

I too agree with (tomocox)...interview with different brokers in your area...find one that offers training and not just video training-I mean in a classroom or one on one. Some people work better within a smaller company some work better under pressure with a larger one....find one that feels right to you. Once you get experience under your belt you can always move on.
