A candidate must be eighteen years of age and complete a state-approved course to be eligible for a salesperson license. The new law, effective June 1, 2011, requires 40 hours of approved pre license classroom training which must be completed before taking the state exam. Prior real estate knowledge is not required to participate in the course.
The course is in a live lecture format as the Board does not allow online classes for Pre License training. The material is designed to assist you in understanding each subject so that you may successfully pass the license exam; but just as one would for any other exam, it will be necessary to do study work on your own time. Students are urged to bring a notebook, pen, highlighter and basic calculator. Once you receive your salesperson license, it may be used for either residential or commercial property – for sales or rentals. You may hold the license for future use or go to work for a broker.
The State Exam:
After a student completes the pre license course, we will provide you with the Candidate Information Bulletin that includes the education certificate necessary for the exam and the toll-free phone number to schedule an appointment. The student decides when and where to take the state exam. The testing centers are located in Auburn, Charlestown, Fall River, Lawrence and Springfield. Schedules vary but generally there are test dates on Monday thru Saturday at least one of the centers. Exam appointments should be made once a student finishes the course. Students have 2 years from the date you finish the course to take and pass the state exam.
The state exam consists of two sections of multiple choice questions — the general portion and the Massachusetts Law portion. A score of at least 70% is required on both sections to pass. The exam fee is $85.00. Exam results and licenses are issued on the spot!
