How to Become a Real Estate Agent in New York

Real estate is a lucrative career in the state of New York. Indeed says the average agent earns north of $90,000 a year, plus real estate professionals get to enjoy flexible schedules and a solid career outlook since people will always need somewhere to live. Ultimately, all of these factors might be enough to tempt you into becoming a real estate agent in New York.

The process, while a little involved, is pretty manageable. You just need to take five steps to get properly licensed as a real estate salesperson by the New York Department of State. Here are your to-dos. 


You need to be at least 18 years old and you need to have a current New York State photo driver’s license or non-driver ID card.


In order to get your salesperson license, you need to complete 75 hours of qualifying education. That sounds like a lot, but you can take it online and at your own pace to make it convenient for you. That means you can work on your hours at night from any device with an internet connection. In other words, you won’t need to take any time off from your current job or schooling. However you choose to take your 75 hours, make sure you get them from an education provider that has been approved by the state. If you don’t, the hours won’t count toward the 75 you need.


Once your hours are finished, you should be briefed on the topics you’ll need to know to pass your New York real estate salesperson exam. In fact, state-approved education providers are required to center their curriculum around the exam content. This test is a multiple-choice, one-and-a-half-hour exam. To schedule your test, you need to create your account in eAccessNY. Keep that account info handy, because you’ll use it to see your exam results shortly after your testing day. You won’t get a numerical score for your exam. Instead, when you log in to eAccessNY, you’ll see that you either passed or failed. If you failed, don’t stress. You can take the exam again. You’ll just need to pay the $15 exam fee each time.


As a real estate salesperson, you can’t work independently. Instead, you need to find a broker — basically, a real estate professional with a higher level of licensure — to supervise you. This is a lot like finding an employer. Look for real estate brokerages in your area that are hiring to find the one that will sponsor your real estate salesperson application.


Once you’ve finished your 75 hours, passed the exam, and found a broker to hire you, you’re ready to apply for your salesperson license. You can do that through the eAccessNY account you set up earlier. As you do, be ready to pay the $55 application fee. Do these five things and the Department of State should approve your application without any hiccups. Then, you’ll be well on your way to a rewarding real estate career.
