If you meet these qualifications, earn your New Jersey real estate salesperson's license in five easy steps.
Step 1: Complete the pre-license course
Start by signing up for the New Jersey 75-hour Pre-license Salesperson Course. Select a course from the state's list of approved education providers.

You have one year after completing your pre-license course to schedule your New Jersey state licensing exam.

Step 3: Take and Pass the State Exam
The New Jersey Salesperson licensure exam is a comprehensive exam of 110 questions worth 110 points. You will have four hours to complete the exam.
Students must pass the exam with at least a 70% score (77 questions) to pass the overall exam. Your score will immediately show on screen and be emailed to you.
Step 4: Get Fingerprinted for a Background Check
All New Jersey salesperson applicants must be fingerprinted using the LiveScan process. You must get fingerprinted within a year of passing the state exam to make a timely filing for your license.
Start by filling out the required Universal Form. Online scheduling is highly recommended for booking your fingerprint location and time. You will directly pay IDEMIA a $66.05 fee for the background check.
Step 5: Find a Sponsoring Broker to Apply for Your License
In New Jersey, all salespersons must work under the supervision of a Managing Broker. Your Managing Broker will submit your license application.
You must provide your Broker with your Applicant ID number. This ID number is found on your testing score card that proves you successfully passed the state exam. The Broker will go to the Online Licensing Services portal to submit the application.
When you submit, have all your paperwork ready to go. The NJREC does not accept partial submission of materials. These materials include:
Once the New Jersey Real Estate Commission approves your application, you and your broker will receive an email confirmation. Congratulations, now you’re legal to practice real estate in New Jersey!

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.

Real estate agents can make unlimited income. Your pay depends on the number of deals you handle; the more deals you source and close, the more you make!
Stop working in a dead-end 9-5 job. By law, your sponsoring broker can’t tell you when and where to work! Choose your own schedule and set your own hours.
Use your license to earn side income by working part-time. Or, slowly build a real estate business as you move from your current career. You can always go immediately full-time and make real estate your dream job.
Holding a real estate license allows you to sell or lease real estate throughout New Jersey.
