Having a career in real estate can be both exciting and scary and it can be very rewarding with the potential of high earnings, freedom with time, helping others achieve their goals of home ownership and an intellectual challenge that can bring satisfaction. Here are some characteristics and or disciplines we feel one needs to succeed in real estate:

Step 1: Obtaining an Indiana Real Estate License:
If you are considering a career in real estate then obtaining a real estate license is your next step. You must be able to meet the following requirements to obtain a real estate license in Indiana:
- be at least 18 years old (high-school graduate or hold an equivalency diploma)
- have no conviction for a crime having a direct bearing on your ability to practice competently
- Complete a 90 hour pre-license broker class online or take an in person class. The course includes 3 tests. You must have a cumulative score of 225 points or more to receive your completion certificate.
- Once you pass the course, you will take an in-person, Indiana state pre-licensing exam through the state testing facility – Pearson Vue (www.pearsonvue.com).
- Upon passing the state exam you need to decide on the Real Estate Company or Real Estate Team to affiliate with and apply for your real estate broker license with the Indiana Real Estate Commission.

Here are some suggestions of real estate schools approved to offer pre-licensing education (you can choose between in-person, online or a hybrid of class options).
