Real Estate Courses Overview

Salesperson Courses – The Massachusetts salesperson real estate license allows one to work under a real estate broker and take part in both residential or commercial real estate sales and rentals. Learn more about our Massachusetts salesperson courses if you’re interested in obtaining a Massachusetts real estate license.

Broker Courses – The Massachusetts broker license identifies you as a real estate agent with at least one year of experience and allows you to open up your own real estate sales office and work for yourself.

Continuing Ed Courses – Massachusetts State law requires that real estate brokers and salespersons complete 12 hours of approved real estate continuing education if they wish to maintain their real estate license on an active status. Real Estate Continuing Education is required within 24 months before your renewal date. Real Estate Continuing Education Courses are available at our real estate school or online.
