Real estate agents are licensed to help people buy, sell, and rent real estate. They are ultimately responsible for bringing buyers and sellers together and are paid a commission—usually a percentage of the property’s sale price. Real estate agents are also called real estate associates and real estate salespeople.

The requirements for becoming a real estate agent vary by state (there’s no federal license). In general, however, real estate agents must:


● Be at least 18 years old

● Be a legal resident of the INDIA

● Complete their state’s required pre-licensing class

● Take and pass the state real estate license exam

● Complete a background check

● Be sponsored by a licensed real estate broker

● Complete the continuing education classes required to maintain the license
