Real Estate Career

How to Become a Licensed Real Estate Broker?

  1. Must be 18 years of age and have received a high school diploma or equivalent.  If you are a legal alien but do not have a permanent residency card (green card) or have a special circumstance please contact the Indiana Real Estate Commission (IREC) to ensure they will process your license: 317-234-3022 or email them at
  2. Sign up for a 90 hour real estate class & pass 3 exams with at least a 75%. The Real Estate Schools typically run around $450-$800. Some of the schools that we recommend include but are not limited to:  Tucker School of Real Estate, Real Estate Certification Program (RECP), IBREA of Indianapolis, and more.
  3. Sign up to take the State Real Estate Exam.  The cost is currently around $53, but subject to change. Take your 90 hour real estate class certificate and your drivers license with you.
  4. Interview with real estate companies where you can go to build your business. We recommend going somewhere that you get a substantial amount of training and mentorship.  It’s also good to have a managing broker that also sells, so they can be current with the market trends.
  5. To process your license, you will pay approximately $60.00 (subject to change)  to the Indiana Professional Licensing Agency (IPLA) for paperwork and to activate your license. You will have one year to do this or the commission will hold your license inactive until you decide where to place it.
  6. Once you have processed your license, you will join the Metropolitan Indianapolis Board of Realtors (MIBOR). This is the most expensive part of getting into real estate.  Expect to pay somewhere between $1,000 to $1,700 per year depending on which month you join.  Contact MIBOR for more info at (317) 956-1912 or visit  You will complete an application, you should receive your email and login within about 2 days, then complete the new member orientation within 90 days.
