How to get your NC Real Estate License

Here are the steps on how to obtain your NC Real Estate License:

Sample of a real estate license

Step 1. Successfully complete an approved 79 hour pre-license course. Here is a list of approved schools through the North Carolina Real Estate Commission (NCREC).

Step 2. Submit your course completion form and $30 to the NCREC. You will also need to obtain a criminal back ground check from Carolina Investigative Research, Inc. You can go to the NCREC website here and the Carolina Investigative Research website here.

Step 3. Register for and pass the NCREC State exam. A fee of $66 for the exam is made payable to PSI exams. Go to the PSI Exam website here.

North Carolina is a great state to have your real estate license in. The population in North Carolina continues to increase with many people from all over flocking to move here and purchase real estate. By having your North Carolina real estate license, you can now earn a portion of the real estate commission when they decide to buy or sell real estate in North Carolina.

If you work in another industry, or are retired, it is still wise to get your real estate license. You can place that license with us in which you are now active and can collect part of the real estate commission as we are a real estate referral company. When you know of someone looking to buy or sell any type of real estate, not just in North Carolina but anywhere in the world, we can refer it out to a top agent who will handle everything for you and pay you back top dollar as a referral fee. Go to our website to get more details.
