In SD you have to take 100 hours for the Real Estate class and after passing the test you then have to take the state and national test which is about 3 hours long. Its well worth it! I have been a Realtor for nearly 4 years and enjoy meeting new people and the freedom that comes along with it!

In Connecticut, you need 60 hours. You don't need a college education; however in the commercial real estate field, it's good to have a business degree. I don't know many successful commercial real estate sales people that don't have a degree.

Hey Bent...you seem to spend a lot of time on the real estate forum... which leads me to believe you enjoy real estate.... or at least talking shop. Why don't you get your license as it only takes 64 hours? Then you too ... can call yourself an "elite" realtor and join the club...lol...

I just love your posts...most entertaining!....Sunny

Thanks, but no thanks...I feel I can do it on my own with help if I really need it, but i don't want to be a part of the bunch. I still have hope that the bad once will leave the field and the good once will stay so we finally will be able to find the good once.

I guess the bad once have stand in line for a job at the new to open mall in my town. This was in the newspaper that realtors and mortgage brokers were in line to get a job at Macy's and Dillards....so we know what kind of advise we will get in these stores.... (maybe only in this area, I don't wnat to insult anybody and have worked in retail myself....but reading the article in the newspaper with so many "professionals" trying to get a job in these shops, I was thinking...wow)

In Florida, not only don't you need college, you don't even need high school. All you need to take the test is proof that you attended 64 hours of real estate classes. Pass the test and you are an instant expert know it all on building construction, design, framing, plumbing, electric, HVAC, real estate contracts, finance, mortgages, banking, taxes, insurance, consulting, dispute resolution, neighborhood conditions, schools. And hope you learned enough during the morals and ethics sessions.

You don't get to call yourself a REALTOR® by passing a test and getting a real estate license. A REALTOR® is a member of the National Association of REALTORS® (yeah, I think the all caps are stupid, too, but it's a registered term and has to be used that way, and with the ®, legally); not all real estate agents belong to NAR.
