Choose a sponsoring broker.

To apply for an active Georgia real estate salesperson license, a licensed Georgia real estate broker must sponsor you. Choosing the right broker to work with is a very important step in becoming a real estate agent and developing your career. Here are some questions to consider when seeking a sponsoring broker to work with:

  • What is their reputation, both locally and nationally?
  • What kind of real estate agents are they looking for?
  • Are they technologically advanced and up to date with the latest systems?
  • How do they support their agents with education and training?
  • What kind of commission structure do they offer?
  • Do they offer benefits?
  • Do they provide their agents with leads and marketing material?
  • Is there room to grow with the brokerage?



Background check.

Prior to taking the licensing examination, the candidate must obtain a copy of their criminal history or Georgia Crime Information Center (GCIC) Report from any sheriff’s office or police department. The report is valid for 60 days and must be brought to the exam center.



Register and pass the Georgia Salesperson Licensing Exam.

GREC has contracted with Applied Measurement Professionals, Inc (AMP) to administer the exam and facilitate the license application process. For more information, please refer to the Georgia Real Estate Candidate Handbook provided by AMP.



Apply for your license.

After you pass your licensing exam, you may apply for your license at the AMP testing center. Please see the Georgia Real Estate Candidate Handbook for details on the application process and required supporting documentation.
