How do I get started?

In Kansas, your real estate career will start by obtaining a Kansas license. To get a Kansas license you must first complete the Kansas 30-hour Principles of Real Estate course. This course focuses on such areas as titles, fair housing, property rights, ownership, etc. Next, you must complete the 30 hour Kansas Practice course. This course introduces you to contracts, property types, financing, working with buyers and sellers etc. Both of these courses must be taken through a Kansas accredited school. Together, these courses establish the base level of knowledge required for our in-house training to build upon. After successful completion of these two state courses, you must take and pass the Kansas Real Estate Saleseperson test. At this point, you would join with a broker and become an agent of that broker. The broker is now responsible for your actions as they relate to real estate.

In real estate as in most true professions, your training and education will never stop. Our industry is exciting and always changing, as a result, personal growth is essential for success.
