How to get my real estate license
How I did it: This one is easy and well worth the trouble. Go with an online education provider such as Van Ed, BootStraplearning or Kaplan. They are all about the same in quality - go with the one that gives you the best price. You can easily finish up the education requirement in less than a month if you go the online route (vs. 3 semesters the community college route!) Pass the test, find a broker and you are in bidness!
The commission that I received for purchasing my own house more than paid for all of the expenses I had incurred obtaining my license. I do this part time
Lessons & tips: The commission that I received for purchasing my first house more than paid for all of my expenses obtaining my license and real estate is a side job for me - I now earn most of my commissions through referrals - finding an agent for people I meet (usually .25% of the sales price).
Resources: I got my requirements through BootStrapLearning.com because they had the best deal at the time (ask for a discount if you can't find a coupon). If you are looking to make a career of real estate start out with a large broker that has a GOOD sales program. Sales training strategies and time management are critical to be really successful.
