Frequently Asked Questions… 

Who needs a license? According to Article 12-A of the Real Property Law, “anyone who negotiates any form of real estate transaction for another and for compensation of any kind in the State of New York” needs a license.

What is the difference between a Broker and a salesperson? A Broker is the owner or corporate officer of the firm. The Broker sponsors, trains, and supervises all the real estate activities of the agents for which he/she is responsible. A salesperson works for and under the direction of the sponsoring Broker.

What happens if I take the course but am not ready to apply for my license? Your course completion certificates are valid for 8 years so if, at the end of the course, you’re not ready to apply for your license, you must hold on to your certificates until you are ready. Remember, the State exam results are valid for two years. 

If I miss a portion of the Qualifying Course what happens? According to the New York Department of State, you must complete 90% of the class time in order to pass the course. In other words, if you miss more than 7.5 hours of the salesperson’s class or 4.5 hours of the broker’s class, you will automatically fail.
