Arello approval number: TBD
To qualify for a real estate salesperson license in Montana, first you must be at least 18 years of age. You must have received credit for two years of a full curriculum of study at an accredited high school or its equivalent.
If you meet these basic requirements, proceed through the following (6) steps.
Step 1: Complete 70 hours of pre-licensing education
All new salespersons must take 70 hours of pre-licensing education from a state approved course provider. The course of study must include the topics outlined in Rule 24.210.660, which cover real estate practice, real estate law and ethics, real estate finance, and other topics.
The course completion certificate is valid for two years.
Step 2: Schedule the state licensing exam
Montana uses PSI services to administer the state licensing exam. Online scheduling is available at www.psiexams.com. You do have the option of telephone scheduling by calling 855-898-0716.
The exam fee is $106. The fee is nonrefundable. A list of test centers and more information is in the Candidate Information Handbook.
Step 3: Pass the state licensing exam
Bring two forms of identification. One ID must be a valid, government-issued identification such as a driver's license, state ID, or passport. The second ID must have your signature and preprinted legal name.
Your Montana salesperson exam contains:
The Candidate Information Handbook has an outline of the content tested and the percentage of questions asked in each topic area.
Immediately upon the completion of your exam, you receive the score report. A passing score is good for one year. If you do not pass, PSI will provide you with a diagnostic report.
Step 4: Be hired by a Montana licensed broker with a supervising broker endorsement
All salespersons must work under the supervision of a Montana licensed real estate broker with a supervising broker endorsement. The supervising broker endorses your application.
Step 5: Purchase Errors and Omissions Insurance
All new licensees must have Errors & Omissions insurance before their license can be activated. The Montana Board of Realty Regulation (MBRR) offers a group professional policy through Rice Insurance Services Company (RISC) that costs as low as $168.
You may purchase professional liability coverage outside of the group program as long as your coverage meets the state requirements. You need to provide the proof of coverage to the board.
Step 6: Apply for your Montana real estate salesperson license
Your real estate salesperson application requires documentation of:
The license application fee is $150. Online applicants can pay with a credit card or a bank account. Paper applications must include a check or money order.
The MBRR communicates primarily by email. Once they review and approve your application, congratulations! You are a Montana real estate salesperson.

My husband spotted the Real Estate U Groupon deal and he said I should look into it. Honestly at first I thought it had to be too good to be true. But after reading reviews and doing some research I said: “What the heck?!” For the price I really didn’t have much to lose.
I’m so happy I took the leap of faith! I loved the audible learning and that I could literally bring it with me wherever I went! I finished in 3 months! Trust me when I say if I can do it you can do it. I’m a very busy mother of 3 and they all have extracurricular activities, but somehow I buckled down and finished.
I did take a live test prep class at a local real estate school just to cover all bases. I reviewed all the quizzes from all the chapters to prepare. My advice would be to take your time when you test. I was so nervous but I took my time because I knew the material I just had to take my time!
Passing on my first try felt amazing!
I would not be here had I not had the amazing opportunity to complete the real estate licensing course via Real Estate U! I highly recommend the Real Estate U course. In fact my oldest son has decided to take the course as well!

I am currently working as a part time real estate agent for Century 21 APD Associates, in the beautiful city of El Paso, Texas. I wanted to get into real estate to become my own boss and I am looking forward to building a 6 figure income. I closed my first deal in October and looking to close on my second this December.
To obtain my license I chose RealEstateU. The courses were extremely helpful in passing state and national exam on my first try. I like the fact that I could study at my pace and I was able use my mobile to access my courses when on the road or when waiting on doctor appointments with my children.
I was able to go back and listen again and again to the parts that I did not get from the beginning. This is something that wouldn't have been provided by being in a classroom setting. If you are looking to obtain your license just be persistent and don't give up on your dream! I was able to invest in this course and more than tripled my return on the first home which I sold short after I obtained my real estate license.
If this is something you think you'll enjoy try it out and take the risk. Why not risk on something that has the potential to double or triple your income on the side. Jump on the opportunity of getting your license, which honestly is the easy part. And then go all in on the process helping clients and customers get what they want, which is a great home buying/selling experience.

I (still am) a licensed auto insurance claims adjuster for a major insurance company. I held that position for 7.5 years. My family dynamic was changing and myself or my husband needed to be home more for our blended family of 5 children.
Real Estate allows me to regulate my schedule so I can dedicate time to my children and their activities. I will be working for LIV Realty in Frisco, TX and will be working full-time. My goals moving forward are to continue learning, networking and growing towards my own business. I plan on becoming a broker one day.
I loved the ease of the course. I was able to navigate easily and picked up where I left off each day. If I had any questions I received a response back very quickly from the RealEstateU support team. I was able to study and retain information easily. The workbook and the glossary were easy to follow and allowed me to print them to take with me in the event that I was not able to use my laptop. I loved that the course was accessible from a cell phone as well. We had a planned trip across the United States and I was able to study on my cell phone as we travelled 9 states. I have already recommended the course to a few of my friends!

Thank you so much for your help over the last few weeks. I rushed to get through the course because I am so excited to start working in the field as a NYS realtor. I thought this would have a negative impact on me toward the end when I was ready to test, but I feel I retained a lot of the info and am happy with the results.

How much income do you want to have a year? With real estate, the more transactions you find and close, the more money you can make!
You decide your schedule and set your hours. By law, your supervising broker can’t tell you when and where to work!
Use a real estate license as a side gig. Or, transition into the career as you build a clientele. Of course, you can launch straight to a full-time career and realize all the possibilities in real estate.
