What’s it take to get a Real Estate License?

The process to get a real estate license is fairly simple. In Virginia, the law requires that you complete a 60-hour Principles & Practices of Real Estate course. The course may be taken in a variety of formats. But, it must be approved by the Virginia Real Estate Board and it must be offered by a state certified school. Our courses satisfy these requirements.
