I purchased the 99$ exam prep master, it's all quizzes but there isn't any courses to take or read, is it still considered the 75 hour that's required? Or i have to purchase the "packages"

Asked by: realestatenewbie333
You need to purchase the actual course. Exam prep is solely to prepare you for the experience of the state licensing exam. Every NY package we offer has the course you need. Select which package based on how much and what type of additional support you want.

Do I have to work for a licensed broker in order to take the sales test?

Asked by: Longbow
You will have to work for a licensed broker and list that broker on your application, but you should be able to take the test without a broker in place.

Do I need a Ny state ID in order to be issued the real estate licens. I am not talking about the card but rather the licens and its number.

Asked by: JOEY
You don’t have to have a NY license or ID to be licensed. You will need to use the DMV for the photo on your real estate license. The NYS Division of Licensing webpage has the specifics for you. https://www.dos.ny.gov/licensing/photoid.html

If I take this 75 hour course and move to Washington, will I have the necessary credentials to take their exam and get my license out in WA? Or will I need to re-do all the coursework if I move ? In a nutshell is the 75 hour course valid in all 50 states?

Asked by: Apas
The 75-hour course is valid only in New York. Each state has unique licensing requirements so the education is different from state to state. That being said, Washington does allow some agents licensed in other states to skip taking the Washington course. See this page from the Washington commission to see the details: https://www.dol.wa.gov/business/realestate/brokerslicense.html

Morning, is it possible to obtain a license if you're from abroad? My son is 16, Belgian ,going to school here but is determined to start classes in NY when he finishes school in Belgium at the age of 18.

Asked by: Thomas
There are no residency requirements to start classes at our school, but he should verify with the NY Board to make sure his residency situation meets their licensing requirements.

Most states do not recognize out of country licenses - out of state maybe, but not outside the U.S. However, you can always confirm directly with the NY Real Estate Commission at (518) 474-4429.
