Are you thinking about becoming a real estate agent in North Carolina?
Whether you are changing careers or just starting in your career, the real estate industry has never been better.
Let me give you some background on what the process looks like to get your North Carolina real estate license. We are all real estate brokers in North Carolina, whereas most other states typically have real estate agents and brokers with separate licenses. The broker is the person that oversees and is responsible for their agents but in North Carolina they are referred to as the Broker in Charge.
Take our 75 hour Pre-Licensing class On Demand, pass the exam through PSI and become a real estate broker in North Carolina.
When you obtain your license in North Carolina, you will be a provisional broker. You will then have 18 months to take the required 90 hours of Post Licensing education which consists of three thirty hour classes. These Post licensing classes do not have to be taken in a specific order, although they are designed in order. Once you have successfully completed the 90 hours you will be a full real estate broker in North Carolina.
