I am interested in obtaining a real estate broker license in NC as well as an appraiser's license. I don't necessarily plan on doing either as a career but I am very passionate about real estate and do invest in real estate on the side so I figure it wouldn't hurt to educate myself.

How many hours of classroom do I need for each? How long are the exams? How much do classes and exams cost? Does anyone have a recommendation on where to take classes in the Charlotte area?

Thanks!
Anu

Hi, I recently completed my classes online! I took mine through recampus. If you search online for your state real estate commission's website, it will list different options for you to take your class online, if you choose to. I waited to be in real estate for a long time until I found a company that allows me the opportunity to make residual income. Good luck!

Anu,

Here is the book from the NC REC.

Licensing Process Overview.

The list of approved schools.
I took prelicensing and broker's classes from J Y Monk, and they have classes in the Charlotte area.
I liked going to an idependent school, rather than to a real estate firm school, assuming that I would feel no recruitment pressure. I don't know if firms do that, but I didn't want it.

I took my prelicensing at my local NC community college (Wayne County). It was two nights a week for four months. It only cost $65.00. It is not the most sucessful way to go (the community colleges have a terrible pass rate) but the cheapest and I did it after my day job. We had a beginning class of 25 and finished with 9. If you miss more than one class you are out. Out of the nine only two of us passed the final exam. With the low cost a lot of folks don't have much motivation to work hard. I did pass the state exam first time 9 months later (I procrastinated) I did take the one day cram course a couple weeks before my state exam.
