Who Is A Real Estate Salesperson and How is a Salesperson Different from a Broker

If you are new to this industry without prior related experience, this is your first course of study. This course will prepare you for the New York Department of State Real Estate Salesperson's Exam required to obtain your license.

To get your Real Estate Broker's license, you must work full time as a Real Estate Salesperson for a minimum of two years before you can obtain your broker's license. This work is done while associated with and supervised by a licensed RE broker who is your sponsor.
