What to bring with you to your appointment for State Board Testing at the Pearson VUE Testing Center

You MUST bring the Rowlett Real Estate School completion certificate for the required course to the exam center NOT the "wall certificate".   A copy of the completion certificate is accepted. 

You MUST bring two forms of valid non expired identification with you to your appointment.  One must be a photo bearing government issued identification.  Signatures are required to be on both forms of Identification.  

If you do not have the required items with you, you will be considered absent and will be denied access to the examination room.  You will forfeit  the full examination fee.  

Upon arriving, you will be asked for the items above, and will be given a form to fill out.  You will then be asked to stand in front of a camera for a picture that will appear on the pass/fail end of test form. 

You will be asked to put your personal items in a locker and you can only take a non-programmable calculator in the testing room.  No food, drink, candy, or gum is allowed in the testing room.  No items are allowed in pockets of clothing, and Kleenex will be furnished if needed.  The testing room is monitored by cameras and a staff member will escort you in and out of the room.  The security rules are strictly enforced.  A pencil and a sheet of paper will be furnished for notes and math problems.

You will be escorted by a staff member into the testing room to a user friendly computer based terminal that will be used for the exam.  The staff member will give a brief explanation of how to use the testing equipment.  You will be given a total of 3.5 hours to complete the examination.  Use the time wisely.  The computer allows you to mark the questions that may need more time to answer and then go back to them once the easier questions are answered.  Remember, the goal is to answer as many questions correctly as possible, and this allows better use of the time.  There is no penalty for guessing. 

What happens if I pass or fail?  The test is graded immediately upon completion at the test site. 

PASS:  Pearson VUE will give you a notice stating “PASS” and this will serve as a temporary license until the actual license is received by mail – approximately 3 weeks.  The license will be considered inactive until you are employed by a broker/owner.  The passing score will not be indicated on the notice.   

FAIL:   Pearson Vue will give you a notice stating “FAIL” with a breakdown of the score for the categories of law, principles and practices, and math.  The breakdown will advise you of the areas that need to be studied before retaking the test.  

The incorrectly answered questions may be reviewed by making an appointment with the testing service, but you must wait at least 24 hours to call for scheduling the review.  A fee of $35.00 is charged for the review.  

The test may be retaken, but you must wait at least 24 hours to call to reschedule.  A fee of $31.50 is charged to retake the test.

    Mutual Recognition

Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation mutual recognition resources.

Florida has entered into a mutual recognition agreement with eleven (11) of the following states, Alabama, Arkansas, Connecticut, Colorado, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Mississippi, Nebraska, Oklahoma and Tennessee. Qualified residents from these states may get a Florida real estate license by passing a forty (40) question examination. The exam tests knowledge of Florida real estate license law, statutes and administrative rules. The exam is the same for sales associates or brokers.
There are no requirements that an applicant must attend a course for this exam, but we do suggest the following methods of preparation.

Self Study the Sales Associate's course text.

Florida Real Estate Principles, Practices & Law -Linda Crawford

Attend a sales associate class during the License Law segment.

This consists of the first twenty-four (24) hours of our Sales Associate Licensing Course.
This can be accomplished by attending the first three (3) classes. .

The License Law Course fee is $159.00. It includes the Sales Associate text above.
For scheduling, refer to our Pre Sales Associate License Course schedule for starting dates and classroom locations.

Attend the Sales Associate State Exam Cram Course

Mutual Recognition rules apply only to individuals whom are NOT Florida
residents as defined by Florida Statute 475

What if I am licensed in a state other than those with Mutual Recognition?

If you are a licensed real estate Sales Associate or broker who have real estate experience in another state that is not mutually recognized. Then you may apply the experience toward a Florida real estate broker license if you have held an active Sales Associate, or a current and valid broker license for at least twenty-four (24) months during the past five (5) years.

Florida Career Info:

 

This is truly a great career that you can start in only a few weeks...

 

Florida Real Estate Sales can be an extremely rewarding career. As a Sales Associate, you are essentially your own boss, but with a manager who makes sure you have plenty of support. Your earning power is unlimited and you can set your own hours.

 If you have great people skills, a proven sales ability, consider yourself to be a self-starter and the idea of becoming an entrepreneur appeals to you, you just might want to consider a career in real estate. Beyond just selling houses, today’s real estate profession offers a number of different career choices, each focusing on a different aspect of the business.

For anyone interested in breaking in to real estate sales, the first step is to get licensed. The licensing exam is actually the culmination of a training course, and includes both general and state-specific information.

Once you obtain your license, you must go to work for either a commercial or residential agency, as a real estate agent. You cannot sell real estate on your own until you are a licensed broker. As an agent, your job will be to represent the seller and find a buyer for his or her home. Commercial real estate agents represent business owners selling or leasing office buildings, stores, malls and other types of commercial property. A successful agent will learn as much as he or she can about the potential buyer and match his or her needs with appropriate property. Knowing what the customer wants and how much he or she can realistically afford to spend helps make sales happen. A big part of the job is attracting buyers to the properties that you have listed. This is done through advertising, canvassing, and following up the leads.

Although agents work for an agency, they are essentially an independent entity, and split any commissions with that agency. Because real estate agents are paid on a commission-only basis, you will, most likely, not see much in the way of income for the first six months. Use this training period to build your contact file and learn as much as you can about the market in which you are working. Remember, although you are working for a specific broker, you are actually running your own business and are responsible for generating your own income. The effort that you put forward will directly affect your earning potential.

As a beginner, expect to start at the bottom and work your way up. You will be assigned the “graveyard” shift and be expected to make cold calls and follow up on leads. The name of the game is obtaining listings. When a property is sold, the agent who sells it splits the commission with the agent who listed it. If you sell a property that you have listed, obviously, you will make more money. You also may spend some time with another agent or broker, attending open houses and other events.

As you build your reputation, you will get more referrals - both buyers and sellers - and potential customers will call you directly. Over time, your skills will get sharper and your closing ratio will increase. As your sales increase, obviously, so will your commissions. It is at this point that many people make the decision to take the next step in the business and become a broker.

The duties of a real estate broker are similar to those of an agent. Brokers list and sell property but their duties also include supervising agents, advertising, and detail work of the agency. In order to open an agency, the proprietor must be a licensed broker. To become a broker, you must take advanced real estate courses as required by your state, and then pass another exam. As with agents, each state has its own rules and regulations regarding becoming a real estate broker.

People will always need houses in which to live. A career in real estate offers individuals the chance to control their own financial destiny as well as to build entrepreneurial skills. There’s money to be made. All it takes is drive and ambition.

The next step to a Great New Career is, you need to become licensed.

Rowlett Real Estate School's pre-licensing course provides all the preparation you need. And we'll prepare you for the state test in as little as 2 weeks. You will receive a quality educational experience including all the knowledge and expertise necessary to fulfill all of your state's licensing requirements.

Best of luck as you complete your educational and career goals. I will work hard to fulfill your future needs.

Sincerely,

~Captain Wayne Rowlett~

Executives from leading real estate professional associations and privately held firms, estimates that the American real estate industry supports approximately nine million jobs. With the real estate industry under pressure from a slow economy, franchising could be the ideal survival strategy for smaller, independent real estate brokerages. A franchise provides the power of brand name backing, and all the benefits that entails – comprehensive training, state-of-the-art technology, partnerships with leading vendors, and lead generation.
The National Association of REALTORS reported in its 2007 Member Profile that nearly 44 percent of all REALTORS are with a franchised real estate company.
Respondents to the Association’s Profile also attribution their success rates to franchise association 79 percent claimed that the affiliation strengthened their ability to acquire listings. And 89 percent believed that their franchise affiliation improved their firm’s brand name recognition.
When weighing the “pros and cons” of becoming part of a real estate franchise, many of the reasons that justify other franchise industry value propositions apply.
Affiliating a smaller real estate firm with a larger franchise organization offers these advantages:

Proven track record of success for the Franchisor company

Brand name recognition Training in current best practices and technology Operational support Marketing and advertising support Group purchasing power Partnerships with related vendors, such as home inspectors, mortgage lenders etc. Decreased risk For those whose dream is to work in the real estate industry, but who are concerned about the current downturn, a franchise operation could be the best way to own your own real estate business.
