Starting in Real Estate

Getting Your License

The Utah Division of Real Estate determines the qualifications and requirements of all applicants for an Utah real estate license. In general an applicant must be at least 18 years of age, provide evidence of honesty, integrity and truthfulness and not have been found guilty of violating any of the laws of the Utah Revised Code pertaining to real estate. Salesperson candidates must complete 120 classroom hours of study at a degree granting institution. These classes include Real Estate Principals and Practices, Real Estate Finance, Real Estate Appraisal and Real Estate Law. After the successful completion of the aforementioned classes, the applicant must pass a written State of Utah examination. In order to take the examination, the applicant must file an application that is signed by the applicant and sponsoring broker. (request information on fees and class schedules by email).

Getting Started

Most new Sales Associates are concerned about where their listings and sales will come from. Finding clients is like farming. The more seeds you spread and the more you fertilize and cultivate your farm the greater the harvest. RE/MAX Associates offers more tools to help you reap a bountiful harvest than any other company in the market. We have the training and individual mentoring to help new associates get started quickly. How Quickly? That is up to the individual and what they put into the business. We believe that it is possible to have your first transaction within 30 to 45 days.

Basic to a successful real estate career is the ability to get in touch with buyers who want to buy and sellers who want to sell. Both are considered “prospects”, and prospects constitute the life’s blood of the industry. Prospecting is the activity that relates to success. You will be encouraged and expected to participate in productive and profitable prospecting activities. We have unparalleled systems and tools to help you in the process. Additionally, your personal web page will deliver inquiries to you.
