How To Become A Florida Real Estate Broker


Are you a natural leader who looks for opportunities beyond the horizon? Maybe it is time for you to earn your Florida Real Estate Broker License.

Becoming a real estate broker in the State of Florida is as much of an opportunity as it is a privilege. While some people live an exciting life and feel fulfilled professionally as a real estate sales associate, others want more out of their real estate career. Here’s an overview of the requirements to become a Florida real estate broker:

  • To become a real estate broker in Florida, a candidate must be at least 18 years old and must have earned a high school diploma or GED equivalent.
  • Your candidacy to become a Florida real estate broker requires you to have held an active real estate sales associate license for a period of at least 24 months (2 years) during the past five years, including individuals from other states or nations, and have completed the Sales Associate post-licensing course. Note that working for an Owner-Developer does not count toward this minimum requirement.
  • Candidates must have completed the required 72-hour real estate broker pre-licensing course, available from Classic Real Estate School.
  • A candidate must submit an application to the State of Florida’s Division of Real Estate upon completion of the pre-licensing course. A fee is associated with the processing of your application by the DRE.
  • A candidate must pass the Class Exam with a grade of at least 70% AND the State Exam with a grade of 75% to qualify for a broker’s license.

Individuals who pursue a four-year degree in Real Estate from an accredited college of university may not be required to have some or all of the above-mentioned requirements.
