There are two portions of the exam.  One is a national portion that is of course the same in every state and the second is a state portion that gets more specific with the needs of your state.  Also, states can require you to pass certain courses and/or have a number of credit hours before sitting to take the exams.

The national portion consists of approximately 80 questions (as of date of this post) that include the following topics:

  • Real Property Characteristics and Definitions
  • Property Valuation
  • Buyer and Seller Contracts and Relationships
  • Federal Laws in Real Estate
  • Financing the Transaction
  • Property Management
  • Brokerage Operations
  • Real Estate Calculations
  • Ethics
  • and more…

Preparing for your exam can be stressful so we’ve added a section on this site to help with the math portion and will other sections as we grow.  This site was built to help everyone interested in a career in real estate.  Whether you are preparing to sit for the exam or a seasoned professional we can all learn more and benefit from other people’s experience.

Well, I hoped that this site has helped you determine how to become a real estate agent in your state.  I’d love to hear how your journey is going so please leave me a comment when you have a minute.
