Are you ready to begin your new career as an Ohio real estate agent? The CE Shop has everything you need to get started and set up for success.

Hi, I’m Erica with The CE Shop, here to tell you that getting your Ohio real estate license is as easy as following these four steps.

Step 1: Education

First-time licensee candidates in Ohio are required to take 120 hours of Pre-Licensing education. The CE Shop works with Davis College to offer the full 120 hours online in a convenient do-at-your-own-pace format.

Step 2: Sponsor

To start a new career in Ohio real estate, you must have a broker sponsor you through the licensing process and to provide you with a launchpad for your new career. This broker will be your career and education mentor, and will provide you with an inside view of the day-to-day operations of being a real estate agent. It’s important to find a good fit when picking a broker to work with because it’s a key factor to becoming successful.

Step 3: Application

The Ohio Department of Commerce manages state licensing exam scheduling and facilitates the licensing application process. For more information on scheduling your salesperson exam and submitting your application license, refer to PSI’s Ohio Candidate Information Bulletin.

Step 4: Licensing Exam

Once your application is approved, you’ll receive information from the state about scheduling your licensing exam. The exam consists of a National portion and a State portion and the passing score is a minimum of 70%.
