Get the facts before you move

Now on your path to learn more about real estate, you may have come to several conclusions.  You may just want to take a real estate course for your own education and do not want to obtain a license or you are truly serious about a possible career and want to take the course and pass the required state examination to obtain your license.

To get the Florida real estate license, you must:

  1. Take and pass a mandated 63 hour pre-license course. “Practice and Principles of Real Estate”.
  2. Make application and submit to a background check through the State of Florida and upon approval, schedule and sit for the state license exam. 
Here are some links to get information and costs to  take the 63 hour course.
