There are actually two sets of requirements that have been outlined by the Massachusetts Real Estate Board’s website. One is for the real estate salesperson, and the other for the real estate broker. For consideration toward becoming a real estate sales person you would have to be at least 18 years old to apply for a real estate sales person’s license in Massachusetts. In addition to that, you need to complete at least 24 contact hours of real estate training in an institution authorized by the Real Estate Board. If you are a law student of an accredited law school you do not need to do these 24 hours but like everyone else, you would need to sit and pass the examination for real estate sales persons. Afterwards, you may go ahead and apply for real estate jobs in Boston.

To become a real estate broker is a little more intense as you would need to have been employed or affiliated with an established real estate firm as a sales representative for at least one year before you apply. To also qualify you need to also show proof that you have been living in the State of Massachusetts for at least one year. You will also need training in real estate and for that you are required to complete at least 30 hours of classroom instructions at an approved institution that offers training for brokers. This training is a precursor to the State Real Estate Examinations that you must pass. Once you are successful with your real estate exams you will need to present a surety bond in the sum of $5,000 with any of the approved bond providers. If you are an attorney at law, you do not need to go through the classroom hours, or take the examinations, but you are required to apply and pay the application fee. With your license you can vie for any of the real estate jobs in MA.

Continuing education is vital for license holders and within the 24 months between license renewals, you are required to complete at least 12 hours of further education that is provided by any of the approved training institutions across the state. Do not rely on online courses or correspondence programs as these do not qualify for consideration as continuing education. Your service as a real estate sales person or broker is important for persons who are Building a Home and need help with land acquisition, and others who are buying or selling their properties on the real estate market.
