How to Become a Licensed Real Estate Agent in Texas

Before you can get your license to sell real estate properties in Texas, you need to satisfy all the qualifications and requirements set by the Texas Real Estate Commission.

To become a real estate sales agent in Texas, you must be:

  • A United States citizen or a lawful permanent resident
  • A Texas resident
  • 18 years of age or older

You are required to complete 180 hours of real estate courses from a TREC-approved education provider, pass the state exam, and become sponsored by a licensed broker.

Applicants must also pass a background check and meet TREC's standards for honesty, trustworthiness, and integrity. Those with a history of illegal or unprofessional behavior should request a character evaluation from TREC before applying for a real estate license or enrolling in courses.

Step 1: Complete Your Pre-Licensing Education

Before you can apply for a Texas real estate license, you need to complete six 30-hour courses from a qualifying education provider.

Step 2: Submit Your Application

You can file your application with the Texas Real Estate Commission online or by mail. Filing online on the TREC website is the easiest and most cost-effective method. You will also need to pass a background check and get your fingerprints taken at a location authorized by the Texas Department of Safety. Be prepared to pay the supplemental fees TREC charges for the exam and licensing process.

Step 3: Take the State Exam

Once you complete 180 hours of qualifying real estate courses and TREC approves your application, make an appointment to take the state licensing exam. While the pre-licensing course tests can be completed online, you need to take the state exam in person at a testing center.

Step 4: Find a Sponsor

After you meet the above requirements and pass the state exam, TREC will issue you an inactive real estate license. To earn your active license, you need to get sponsored by a broker who is licensed in Texas. When a broker accepts your request, TREC will issue you an active license, which allows you to work as a Texas real estate agent.
