Go talk to some of the Realtors in your area...start with the national franchises.

There are several options, so take some time to research before making any decisions on what company you may work under, and what offerings schools have to prepare you for the state real estate tests...some you can take classes on line, but I strongly recommend going to the traditional classroom setting for real estate classes.

Hi Kelly! Baird & Warner in Orland Park has licensing classes. It's a great office to work in with weekly learning experiences and a lot of support. We just added 4 new agents this month. Contact me and I can get you information on the next class. Hope to hear from you!

Hi Kelly. The state department of real estate can give you information regarding educational requirements. You can also go to a real estate school. There are many that offer online classes. Once you have taken all the required courses, you'll apply to take the state test. Once you have passed the state test, you apply for your license and then you have to locate a brokerage to hang your license. Some large real estate companies also offer free real estate training to prepare you for your license, but they usually require that you stay with them for a period of time.
I am curious to know why you want to get into the real estate business at this time. I don't mean to discourage you, but with a slowing market it's not an easy field to break in. The truth is, that most new admittees, quit within the first year. Good luck to you.
