Obtaining Your License: Careers in Real Estate.
Two steps are required to obtain a real estate salesperson's license in Texas: (1) selecting a broker to serve as an advisor, and (2) meeting personal requirements (at least 18 years old, a Texas resident, completion of a minimum of 12 semester hours of real estate and related courses, application, acceptable score on state exam, and payment of fees). Obtaining a broker's license requires holding a salesperson's license for two years, completion of 15 semester hours of real estate courses, application, and a satisfactory score on the exam. The Real Estate License Act of 1975 calls for incremental increases in the educational requirements for both positions through 1985. The Texas Real Estate Commission (TREC) has established guidelines to determine which non-real estate courses and subject areas can be applied to the educational requirements. During 1975-76, 83 postsecondary institutions (44 community colleges and 39 senior colleges) and 15 proprietary schools offered real estate courses in 24 planning regions in Texas--these courses were attended by 48,433 people. These institutions and the courses they offer in areas such as principles of real estate, finance, investment, property management, and marketing are listed. Additionally, the information on TREC and the salesperson examination locations are provided. (AYC)
