Go interview 5 to 10 Brokers, every office will have different plans, pick the plan that gives you the most hands on training. The commission split will be greater but the first year of training from a good office will set you up for the rest of your career. ... more

You have to go through all the licensing classes and then take the State exam. Just like you would to become a Salesperson. Once you complete everything you have the option of getting yourself activated by the Real Estate Commission on whichever license you choose "Salesperson" or "Referral Agent".

But be aware, it's not cheap. You have to pay for classes, fingerprinting, and activation of license.

Also, you will have to do it for both States - you can not get 1 license for both.

If you ever do this and go into a Referral situation there is absolutely only 1 company to call. NEW JERSEY REFERRAL AGENTS - They are the BEST! Agents from other companies are fleeing to them. Check out their site!

This blog will give you some insight,

In response to your question regarding no listings. This is how all agents begin in the business. You have to get the right start and training, and then you will get the listings. You have MANY opportunities to do this through open houses, phone calls, door knocking, your sphere, craigslist, online, facebook and more. You may also have the opportunity of working with a successful team to start out as a buyer's agent, lead caller, assistant or something else.

Watch the video series in the link.

There are a few agents in my office that are licensed in both states. Some work for different brokers in each state. I remember when I took my broker class in NJ I could have used some of the class hours towards my NY license. But I still would have needed more class work in NY and take another test in NY. Best wishes ... more

Nader, the most thorough and respected I have found are Brian Kappock, Chuck Harrington or Robert Matule. Just depends on size and location of project. Larry
