Two basic types of real estate licenses are authorized in Missouri:
- Salesperson and
A salesperson works under a licensed broker and cannot:
- work for more than one broker at a time;
- have anyone licensed under him or her;
- receive compensation from anyone other than his/her broker and
- pay compensation to anyone in connection with a real estate transaction except through his/her broker.
To get a Missouri salesperson's license you must:
- Successfully complete a Missouri Real Estate Commission ("MREC") approved 48-hour course called, "Salesperson Pre-Examination Course" (This course must be finished FIRST);
- Successfully complete a MREC approved 24-hour course called "Missouri Real Estate Practice" (This course must be completed AFTER completing the Salesperson Pre-Examination Course but may be completed BEFORE OR AFTER passing the license test);
- Pass both portions of the Salesperson license test administered through PSI testing service;
- Submit your fingerprints to the Missouri State Highway Patrol and FBI approved fingerprint vendor for a fingerprint background check and
- Affiliated with a licensed broker and apply for the license.
The total cost for all of the above may vary depending on whether or not you take the courses online or in a classroom setting, the current rate for the test and how many times you take it before passing it, the current fee for the fingerprinting and the fee for the license. Contact the school to find out the current fees involved.
A broker can work on his/her own and have salesperson's and other brokers licensed under him/her. A broker may also choose to work under another broker.
To get a Missouri broker's license:
- Be actively licensed under a Missouri licensed broker for a minimum of 24 of the 30 months immediately preceding application for the broker's license;
- Successfully complete a MREC approved 48-hour course called "Broker Pre-Examination Course";
- Pass both portions of the Broker license test administered through PSI testing service and
- Apply for your broker's license.
Nonresident licensees who wish to obtain Missouri non-resident real estate licenses must pass the STATE PORTION of the corresponding salesperson or broker prelicense test. Nonresident salespersons must ALSO complete a 24-hour course called "Missouri Real Estate Practice" that has been approved by the Missouri Real Estate Commission and is offered by a Missouri Real Estate Commission approved school.
Professional School of Real Estate is pleased to offer unapproved courses to assist nonresident licensees in preparing for the STATE portion of the Missouri broker and salesperson tests. They include ONLY the state portions of our Missouri Real Estate Commission ("MREC") approved online 48-Hour Broker and Salesperson Pre-Examination courses and, since they are not required prelicense courses, HAVE NOT been approved by the Missouri Real Estate Commission.
As an accredited Missouri Real Estate School we also offer the 24-hour Missouri Real Estate Practice course.
