How does one acquire a Pennsylvania Real Estate License?
A person wishing to acquire a Pennsylvania Real estate License must be at least 18 years of age, have 4 educational credits in real estate (Real Estate Fundamentals and Real Estate Practice), and have successfully completed the State Licensing Examination. After one has passed the State Licensing Exam, a sponsoring broker is required for issuance of the salesperson's license. Acquiring the educational credits is mandatory before one takes the exam. After one has passed the Exam, one may wait up to three years before activating the license. Failure to do so within three years would mean that the prospective licensee must re-take the Exam.
