“The reason I stay here is because of the camaraderie and support. I just feel so much love every time I get into a room with all of my colleagues. A lot of the success I have comes from an array of tools and services provided by McColly. It also comes from Corporate and the programs that they offer us free of charge like the Performance Plus Deferred Compensation, which is an investment program that's become my retirement fund.”

Steps to becoming a

Real Estate Agent

1. Your very first step in your new career is to take the 90 hour pre-licensing Broker course. (You must be 18 years of age and have received a high school diploma or equivalent to apply for a license.)

2. Pass three 100 multiple-choice question tests with 225 points or average 75%.

3. Pass a State Examination with a 75% given by the state testing facility. The state exam currently is $61.00.

4. Once you are ready to process your license with a company, you will pay a fee to the Indiana Professional Licensing Agency to process your paperwork and activate your license. You will have one year to do this or the commission will hold your license inactive until you decide where to place it.

5. Start interviewing with companies you are interested in. It’s good to choose companies that are going to put you through some sort of training and be in an office where you have a manager and mentors who can guide you through transactions.

6. Once you choose a company, you will need to join your local board of Realtors. (You will need to find out commission splits and any other fees during your interview with different companies.)

7. Ask what is expected of you. This will help you determine if you have chosen the right company.
