Developing professionalism through Real Estate Education
Steps To Get Your Broker’s license
Real estate is an exciting career where you will build your business yourself through clients and contacts you develop. To be licensed you will need to apply to the State and follow the steps indicated on their web site: http://www.oregon.gov/rea/Pages/index.aspx
. On their home page, go to the upper right hand corner and click on the “how to get a license” button.
Below is a copy of the screen you will see:
The broker license is the entry-level license in Oregon. A licensed real estate broker can conduct professional real estate activity as defined in ORS 696.010 while supervised by a principal broker.
To qualify for a real estate broker license, you must:
Be 18 years old. Have a high school diploma, GED or international equivalent.
If you qualify, you must complete these steps in this order:
1. Complete a Real Estate License Application in eLicense, the Agency's online license management system. When the application is processed, you will receive an applicant ID number.
2. Pay the $230 license application fee in eLicense.
4. Provide your applicant ID number and your full name to your real estate school.
Once you have completed the requirements and your background check has cleared,
your new principal broker can then log in to eLicense and associate you with the business.
At that time the Agency will issue you a license.
*Please note: License exam scores and background check clearances are each good for one year. The Agency can only issue a license while the relevant scores and background check clearance are valid.
Our online school:
We have contracted with Lexington to provide the online study material, quizzes and tests to prepare you to pass the State real estate exam. Log on to WWW.Oregonrealtyschool.com to register. The material is internet based and self-paced so you can complete the 150 hours at your convenience on your own schedule.
Note: there are seven courses with numerous quizzes, a final at the end of each course, and an overall final/mock real estate exam. Take the quizzes on your own schedule, but the course finals and the overall final need to be taken either at our Grants Pass office or our Klamath Falls office. If you live too far away for that, contact director John Jones to see what other arrangements can be made. You must achieve at least 75% accuracy on each quiz or test in order to proceed, but you can take quizzes and tests as often as needed to get the minimum score necessary to continue. My advice is to shoot for 85%; that gives you a cushion in case you are nervous when taking the State exam.
The course material, quizzes and tests have been upgraded effective January 1, 2013. Since the material is relatively new (and possibly all new to you); you may find errors. If so please highlight the entire item, copy and paste it into an Email to me. I will research the issue and clarify it for you, and make any needed corrections. You are welcome to call me 8 am to 10 pm any day with your questions and comments: 541-660-9598. When you finish all seven courses and pass the final exam, you can download your certificate from the school web site. Simply click on the “get Certificate” under “MY Transcripts”.
When you are ready to take the Exam
The testing agency is PSI, a worldwide provider of all sorts of testing, including the various Real Estate Exams for the State of Oregon. You will need to contact them to arrange for fingerprinting and to take the exam. www.psiexams.com 800-733-9267.
When you complete the entire seven courses, notify us as we will need to provide them your certificate, your state Applicant ID Number, Birthdate, address, Email address, and phone number. To avoid confusion, be sure to use the same name all the way through the entire process. It takes about a month to have your fingerprints verified. It may be possible to have your fingerprints taken and processed prior to taking the exam, but it must be done at the PSI testing site on a day the exam is being given.
