    • Have a valid and active sales associate license for at least 24 months within the past 5 years.
      • You must be with a broker or government agency during this period of time

Completing the required education:

The required 72-hour pre-license course can be completed in class or online.  When it comes to getting your broker’s license, we strongly recommend choosing a school with a history of training individuals for success.  The broker’s exam can be difficult if you do not properly prepare for it.

Compass Real Estate Academy has been preparing Florida real estate agents and brokers for success since 1970.  Most agents and brokers have taken their pre-license, post-license, or continuing education with Compass Real Estate Academy at some point in their careers.

Online Education:

The 72-hour broker pre-license course can also be completed online.  We caution anyone taking this course online to do their research.  There are many providers of online education, and some fail to deliver the quality course that you need to successfully pass the exam and get your license.

Getting your real estate broker’s license:

Once your state application has been approved and your education is complete, you can schedule your state exam with the testing center PearsonVue.  Test takers must score at least a 75% or higher on the state exam in order to obtain a broker’s license.  Once that score is achieved, you are considered a broker and are on your way to growing your real estate career!
