Reasons to Get a Brokers License

Champions School of Real Estate Catalog Why Get A Real Estate Broker's License
  1. "It is the only designation that the general public, your customer, recognizes." "Experienced agents and new people should get their broker's license as quickly as possible."

  2. "You can advertise on your cards and marketing materials, Broker-Associate." Most sales agents get a broker's license but prefer to associate or stay with their firm. They do not get it to open their own firm although they certainly could with a broker's license.

  3. The consumer only recognizes the word, "broker" and often asks the question of the agent, "are you a broker?" It doesn't mean they have less confidence in you; it does mean they recognize that word as being a specialist in the industry.

  4. You want to be a specialist. The law of marketing is if you can't be first in an area, be a specialist in an area.
  • You must be a active licensed real estate salesperson for a minimum of 48 months before taking your Texas State Broker's exam.
  • You must achieve a total of 3600 experience points in 4 years of the last 5 years
  • The educational requirement for obtaining a Texas broker license is a total of 900 hours, 270 of those hours must be in core subjects (MCE does not count as core).
  • All of the pre-license (core hours), SAE (core hours) and MCE (related hours) courses count.
  • A College degree may give you the maximum credit of 630 hours related hours. Even a number of courses taken in college without a degree can add up to a lot of related hours.
  • Everyone has to have a minimum of 270 Core hours.
*TREC will not evaluate for Broker's hours needed until the person has a Salesperson's license; however, any licensed agent can go on the www.trec.state.tx.us site and check how many hours they have accumulated from all their approved TREC classes.
