There are two levels of real estate licensing in Massachusetts: Real Estate Broker and Real Estate Salesperson. Individuals must be actively licensed as salespersons for three years prior to becoming brokers.
Candidates for either license must complete the mandatory 40-hour course offered through an approved school. Students who finish will receive the Examination Candidate Information Bulletin certifying their education and containing the application for licensure. Individuals have up to two years to pass the examination. The examination fee is $85 for the salesperson candidate and $106 for the broker candidate. Active duty military and veterans pay $54.
Students should continue to study. It may take up to four weeks for PSI to review and approve the applicant, who may then schedule the examination. The Commonwealth of Massachusetts will issue its license at the test center to individuals who successfully complete the examination.
The cost of this first license includes a $12 PSI licensing fee plus a Massachusetts licensing fee that is prorated to fall in the following range: $103 to $150 for salesperson and $142 to $200 for broker (exact amount to be known on exam day). Those who fail may re-take the examination any number of times before the two-year expiration. The re-take fee is $54.
From this point, the Massachusetts Division of Occupational Licensure and its Board of Registration of Real Estate Brokers and Salespersons will govern the licensee's professional activities. Welcome to our world.
Designed for busy adults, the Bill Morgan Real Estate Academy usually presents its popular 4-day program over two weekends. As mentioned above, students will receive the needed handbook explaining the examination and containing a short application form. Our long days do include breaks and one hour for lunch.
Enroll securely online at the ENROLL page. Walk-ins are welcome but are urged to REGISTER in advance. Payment by cash, check or credit card may be made on-site. The cost is $385 for the Salesperson course and $400 for the Broker course.
