Real Estate Sales is a small business and should be approached as such.
--After you pass the test, be prepared to spend about $1600 for licenses. Supra Key, Application, and Realtor Membership fees. http://lasvegasrealtor.biz/becomerealtor/
--Then you will have to provide for your own business cards, gas, lunches, higher insurance cost , and desk fees, Most realtors do not pick up a paycheck for at least two months.
- When you feel financially stable to take this on, look for a broker who has a structured training program. Ask to see the calendar. Some brokers will tell you they will train you. In reality they do not have time.
- Like any business the more you understand, and more you prepare, the better you will do.
My suggestion would be researching several companies (some offer real estate training).In this Research, look for regarding (splits, desk fees, referrals, presence in the city, etc.) I would then begin to branch out to a number of different affiliates that you are familiar with (church, book club, friends & family) I am working a great deal with renters, who didnâ€™t believe they could obtain conventional financing. I would be happy to explain further, this could have a great impact on future business of yours.

I can see you have received many good answers. I think everyone covered all the bases. I will just add that a great company to consider is Realty One Group. I am at the 10075 W. Charleston office. They offer some great plans and have staff trainers. If you need more information contact me and we can talk.
This is easy. I would suggest a search for Real Estate Schools and compare price and training schedules. Most will cost around 300 to 1000.00
However testing, background and fingerprinting is extra.
Once you obtain your license you need to consider the expense of GLVAR dues and other out of pocket expense.
Then comes the HARD PART. Choosing a broker. Most any broker will hire you. IT'S A TOTAL NUMBERS GAME.
New REALTOR need to look for proper training and splits vs. just splits. You should interview with several brokers before making the decision.
Feel free to check out my web site on the above matters and contact me if I can help you.
Personally, I think you gain from going to class becuase you can begin your networking skills. So much of real estate is who you know. :) It will also help you give you insight into which realty agency you want to work with.
If you ever have any questions, feel free to call or write.
