What Does A Georgia Real Estate Agent Do?

Real Estate Agents in Georgia help clients to purchase, rent, or sell property. This includes finding buyers and sellers, providing advice and helping to negotiate on price, and referring home inspectors or mortgage professionals - all within federal and state rules and regulations. Further, they are required to represent the best interests of their clients, whether they be buyers or sellers.

Additionally, depending upon whether representing the buyer or the seller, agents can recommend an appropriate selling price, market the property, negotiate offers, attending and/or reviewing the home inspection and appraisal, provide feedback on comparable sales.

How To Earn A Georgia Real Estate License

Below are the recommended steps for passing your real estate agent exam and earning your Georgia real estate license.
  • Step 1: Review Georgia's State Licensing Requirements
    Since real estate licensing is state-specific, you want to make sure you qualify or meet the basic requirements for the state in which you want to be licensed. In most states, you have to be at least 18 years old, pass a background check, and pass your state's exam. Click your state from the table above to find your state's requirements - and suggested licensing courses.
  • Step 2: Register For The Georgia Real Estate Licensing Course
    Our real estate training courses are designed to meet the state pre-licensing requirements, as well as prepare you for your state exam. Once you are done, you will be ready to take your state's real estate licensing exam. Click you state from the table above for information on where and how to register for your exam.

    Note: Once you complete your course, be sure to obtain your official transcripts or certificate of completion from the school, which is required for your real estate license application.
  • Step 3: Study For Your Exam!
    While exams often require you to know terms, definitions, and rules, real estate licensing exams are often more than just memorization, so make sure you understand the concepts and take as many of the practice exams that come with your real estate pre-licensing course materials as possible.
  • Step 4: Pass Your Real Estate Licensing Exam
  • Step 5: Submit An Application To Get Your Georgia Real Estate License
    Once you pass your exam, the next step is to apply for your real estate license. This usually includes completing an application and paying a licensing fee.
  • Step 6: Determine Where You Want To Work
    New agents can work either individually, with a broker, or with a team. Those who want to work individually should make sure they have a good business plan and ample funding to carry them until their sales start rolling in. Separately, working with a broker could reduce up front costs while also providing a mentor relationship. Whichever option you decide is best for you, be sure to get trained!
  • Step 7: Get Training For Doing Listing Presentations, Handling Objections, And More!
    While your real estate exam typically includes terms, definitions, and laws, it does not teach you how to sell real estate. For that, you'll need training on how to handle listing, FSBO, and expireds presentations, overcome objections, and more. Luckily, Training Center has lots of real estate training courses to help you succeed. Simply click one of the recommended courses below or select a topic from the search box below.
Good luck earning your real estate license!
