The new Massachusetts state requirement went into effect on June 1, 2011.  Since June 1, 2011, students must complete the new Massachusetts state requirement of 40 hours of classroom instruction. You can read the full text on the Mass.gov site as Chapter 307 of the Acts of 2010 .

  At Annex Real Estate School, we use the latest editions of professional real estate textbooks from Dearborn Publishing , not "class manuals" or just "instructor notes".  You will also get your own copy of the Massachusetts Real Estate License Law, Rules and Regulations. The new schedule and information about the classes and Applications are posted on the Annex Real Estate School Website.

Annex Real Estate Schoolhas been providing Massachusett Pre-Licensing and Continuing Classes for Real Estate Salespersons and Brokers since 1991.  Annex Real Estate School is the proud recipient of the  2012 and 2013 Best of Quincy Award in the Real Estate Education category.

The information given here is only a synopsis of the official requirements.  Please refer to the latest edition of the  Massachusetts Real Estate Candidate Handbook for the latest, complete requirements. You will receive your pesonal copy of this Handbook at the completion of your studies at an accredited Massachusetts real estate school like Annex Real Estate Estate School. Properly completed, it will become your 'ticket' to the Massachusetts real estate licensing examination.  Specific questions should be directed to your Real Estate School's Director, Instructor and/ or to the Massachusetts Board of Registration of Real Estate Brokers and Salespersons.

The calls and emails that we receive at  Annex Real Estate School are generally from people like yourself who would like to start a new career by selling real estate. They say "I would like to become a real estate broker" or... "I would like to become a Realtor®". Most people don't realize that each of these words has a specific meaning. What is the difference between a salesperson, a broker and a Realtor®? 

THE PROCESS TO GET YOUR MASSACHUSETTS REAL ESTATE SALESPERSON LICENSE :

In Massachusetts, the first step in your real estate sales career is to become a licensed Real Estate Salesperson, a licensee.     ( unless you are a Massachusetts attorney* )   As a Real Estate Salesperson, you cannot go into business or work on your own. As a Real Estate Salesperson, you must work for and under the supercision of a Massachusetts licensed Broker.

A  Realtor ®, is a licensed person, a licensee, a Salesperson or Broker, who has joined the professional trade group called the National Association of Realtors.  As a member of that Association, you will be entitled to use the Realtor designation "Realtor ®". Please understand that all you need to sell real estate is your license and a real estate office where you will work. If you go to work in a Realtor® office, then that office has pledged that all of the sales associates in that office will join the Realtor® association.


In addition to your personal qualifications, you start by taking the first step by completing  state mandated hours of  classroom instruction at a Massachusetts Approved  Real Estate School, like  Annex Real Estate School These classroom hours increased to forty (40) on June 1, 2011, when S121, the bill, approved by the Massachusetts legislature and signed by the Governor became effective.) Every real estate school must follow the curriculum that is approved by the Mass Board of Registration, and have an approved Real Estate Instructor in the live classroom.

Do not be scammed. Online instruction does not qualify you to take the Massachusetts real estate licensing examination.  You may take online courses but they will not be counted towards your certification.

[Massachusetts has recently allowed and approved some online instruction for those already licensed to meet their Continuing Education requirements. Be sure you are taking your online Continuing Education from a Massachusetts authorized Real Estate School.  You can read the offical requirements for Massachusetts online Continuing Education at the site of the Mass Board of  Registration.  ]

After completing your required pre-licensing salesperon education at a state approved school, your next step is to take the state examination. The examination is given for the state by a testing service,   Pearson Vue (formerly Promissor). Your class instructor will explain to you the steps to apply for that state examination.


Once you have passed the examination, "Congratulations!"  You are now a Massachusetts licensed Real Estate Salesperson and can  go to work in a Massachusetts real estate firm under the supervision of a Real Estate Broker.  Upon obtaining your Massachusetts Real Estate License you can then go to work for a Massachusetts Real Estate Broker. As a graduate of Annex Real Estate School, you may apply for an interview at Century21 Annex Realty.

What are some of the personal qualifications you need to meet prior to taking the examination?

        a) You must be at least 18 years old and have a valid Social Security number.

        b) You must be have three personal acquaintances, Massachusetts residents, who are not in your class and not members of your immediate family, vouch for you.  In doing so, they will sign in your Candidate Handbook  that they know you, and that you are a person of "good moral  character".  

       
 c) Also, the Board does not license applicants who are currently on probation or who are on parole.

As you might expect, there are some exceptions to the procedure rules..Massachusetts attorneys, law students in an accredited Massachusetts law school, and non-residents.


If you are a Massachusetts Attorney, you may apply for a Massachusetts Real Estate Brokers License without the pre-licensing class and examination.

The second exception applies to law students who have successfully completed a course in Real Property at a Massachusetts, accredited law school.  You may substitute that course for the mandatory pre-licensing course, and apply to take the Massachusetts Real Estate Salesperson examination.

The third exception applies to residents of another state, who are licensed in another state and wish to become licensed in Massachusetts  .  There are various rules of reciprocity that apply.  (Non-residents can also follow all of the steps and meet the same requirements as a Massachusetts resident, and get their Massachusetts license).

You should read about these special circumstances on the pages of the Massachusetts Board of Registration of Real Estate Brokers and Salespersons, and find the page on Reciprocal Licensure, Attorney Licensure, and Waivers.  (This last link is a PDF).


At Annex Real Estate School, your Instructor will go over all of the requirements with you and fully explain the licensing process.
