How to Become a PA Real Estate Agent

Classic Properties Real Estate Agents 35 Years in NEPA Business

Homes across NEPA are selling quickly, and the market is ripe for new agents to get into the mix! With passion and determination, success is unlimited in this profession. But first...you need the right tools, the right training, and the right team. Also...you're going to need your Pennsylvania Real Estate License! 

Have no fear, we're breaking down the process into 3 simple steps! 
In Pennsylvania, you can complete the required training, obtain your real estate license, and start a new career in just months...or even weeks if you're ready to start right away! 

1.    Attend a Real Estate School

To become licensed REALTOR®, candidates must be high school graduates, at least 18 years old, and complete 60 hours of real estate courses, including Real Estate Fundamental and Real Estate Practice.

Real estate education classes can be completed at a school/class held near you or even online! After taking courses in basic real estate knowledge and passing their final exams, you'll then need to pass your State Real Estate Exam to get licensed.

2.    Take the State and National Licensing Exam

The exams are administered together at PSI Exam Center, 1127 Lackawanna Trail Rd. Clarks Summit, Pa 18411. Upon completing your licensing classes you will be provided with transcripts and further information on how to schedule your exam.

3.    Apply for Your License

To apply for a license you must be associated with a Pennsylvania licensed Real Estate Broker (like Classic Properties!). Your Broker will guide you through the application process and have to sign off on your completed application. The following documents are needed to apply for a license:

  • Completed application
  • Class transcripts          
  • Test results(state and national)
  •  Criminal background check
  • Cost = $107

    Typically, it takes 3-4 weeks to be approved and issued a license. Candidates cannot begin working until they are issued their license number.
