I wish I had asked this question before choosing the school I did when I became a licensed real estate agent! I chose a well known and popular real estate school for
my pre-license education and my experience was a horrible one! The Instructor was there for a paycheck and not because of a passion for teaching. He was more concerned with his current real estate business and not my future, for which I invested several hundred dollars. I knew I could do better and I was not even licensed yet! Zenith is MY school, MY passion, and I teach every single class. I am very much invested in YOUR success because YOUR success is also MY success. I am not interested in becoming so large that I have multiple classroom locations with extra instructors. I keep my class sizes to a minimum so that you won't get lost in a crowd and I can make sure that you understand the topics needed to pass the state exam. I am just as much invested as you are in your future!

No, there is no requirement to have the state application and fingerprints submitted before taking a pre-licensing course. However, the earlier you can accomplish these two things, the quicker you can schedule a state exam date.
You can submit the application online by visiting Department of Business and Professional Regulation website. You will need to create an account and apply using the Application for Sales Associate License Form # DBPR RE-1. The state application fee is $62.75 and it will take approximately 2-4 weeks for the state to process and approve your application. You can check the status of your application here. You must submit your fingerprints electronically before your application can be approved. The DBPR suggests getting your fingerprints made 5 days before submitting your application for licensing.
Now register for our course, of course! After you successfully complete your course at Zenith, you must bring your course completion slip with you to the state exam.
