This course must be completed before applying for your license. It can be taken before or after your exam date, but must be taken after the successful completion of the 48-Hour Missouri Salesperson Pre-Examination Course.

Choose a Broker to support you through the process.

How do you choose the right Broker? Brokers are not one-size-fits-all, which is why it’s important to do your research before choosing the brokerage that is right for you. Remember that you represent the Broker that you choose, but they also represent you. You can start by asking these questions and decide if it aligns with what is the most important to you.
