Real estate is a rewarding, interesting, and versatile career. It’s also one of the easier professions to get into. Real estate agents represent property buyers and sellers throughout a sales transaction. Because of the important position of trust and responsibility agents hold, state real estate regulatory agencies require licensees to pass real estate courses and licensing exams and commit to a high level of ethics and accountability.
To conduct real estate activities in California, you must have an active California real estate license. To get licensed, you take a course, file an application, and pass a test. But of course, it’s not quite that simple.
