In Florida, you must be licensed. There are very good schools which teach the course. I would recommend giving IFREC a try the website is http://www.IFREC.com You must take the course, pass the test, and be licensed.

Good luck to you.

Each state is different in how they handle this. Some require a broker's license and others do not. Check this site for more info on our state:

Just like Real Estate you need to take a certified course and get registered in your state (and each state is different). Check with your local state department. Most colleges offer the Property Management Course.
