Income Property Services by Roelens offers Real Estate Broker services. A real estate broker or a real estate agent is a person who represents sellers or buyers of real estate/real property. While a broker may work independently, an agent must work under a licensed broker to represent clients.
What Is a Real Estate Broker?
A real estate broker is a step above a real estate agent. A broker generally has more training and subject-matter education than an agent, but not always. A real estate broker can work independently or hire real estate salespersons to work under them. The exact rules can vary from state to state, but most have somewhat similar requirements.
In Florida, a broker’s license is required to work by yourself. Agents have to work for brokers, but a broker can run her own business. There are three ways to get a broker’s license in Florida.
If you have a four-year college degree and have completed eight college-level real estate courses, you qualify to take the broker’s real estate exam.
If you don’t have a four-year degree, the Florida Bureau of Real Estate requires that you have at least two years of real estate sales experience and that you’ve completed eight college-level real estate courses.
Lawyers who have been admitted to the bar are exempt from the college-level course requirements, but they must pass the exam.
The broker’s exam is generally longer and more difficult than a salesperson’s exam. Brokers are held to higher standards of knowledge.
