3 Steps to Getting Your Illinois Real Estate License
Complete pre-licensing education.
As a prospective agent, you must take pre-licensing courses from an approved real estate licensing school. Upon completion, obtain your official transcripts or certificate; this is required to finalize your license application.
Pass your real estate exam.
Once you’ve passed the final pre-licensing exam, schedule your state licensing real estate exam. Likely, you’ll encounter questions not covered in pre-licensing curriculum, so look for exam prep programs that highlight practice questions for your state.
Launch your real estate career.
Congratulations! You’re officially a real estate agent! Now you can begin working with a broker who will put you on solid ground, ensuring success right out of the gates.
