How do I become an Agent/Advisor?

  1. Personal Interview: Interview with career counselor who can help guide you in the process and decisions concerning a career in Real Estate.
  2. Massachusetts requires a 40 hour pre-license course. Anyone seeking a sales associate's license must complete a pre-license course.  We are affiliated with the Harris Real Estate School and offer the course in our Amherst, 200 Triangle Street office.  The cost of the course including the book and materials is $250.  Contact  413-549-3700 for further details. A certificate of successful completion of this course is required to take the exam to become a licensed sales associate.
  3. State License Exam: Massachusetts requires the completion and passing of a state Salesperson's exam.
  4. Application for the License: After the successful completion and passing both the Massachusetts and the National exam (taken at the same time) you will receive your license. If you do not pass the exam, you may retake them until you pass.
