I think you are in IRVINE, so call a local company and they can help. I strongly recommend calling a Keller Williams agency.
Best of luck! Not easy but rewarding...

You may want to sit down with a couple of agents and find out what's really involved in starting out. It's not easy and takes years to build your business. And it's not cheap either. You have to pay brokerage fees, MLS fees, realtor association fees, errors & omissions insurance...then more if you pay for advertising, signage, websites, marketing materials, etc.
I suggest people get their license and then work for an experienced agent as an assistant first.
