First, you need to have a high school diploma or equivalent. Then, make sure in the 10 years preceding your application, you completed 120 hours of approved real estate education. You should receive the education at an institution that offers at least a two-year program with the following classes available:

  • Ohio Real Estate Law, including instruction in civil rights, housing discrimination and desegregation problems (40 hours)
  • Real Estate Appraisal (20 hours)

Acquire A Sponsoring Broker

Before you even think about submitting an application, you must be sponsored by a broker. That way, if and when you become a realtor, you will have someone to guide you through the ins and outs of the position.

Submit a completed Salesperson Examination Application

The application comes with a $60 fee, and you need to also bring proof you completed all necessary requirements to the Ohio Division of Real Estate and Professional Licensing. They will, in turn, process your information and send it to the testing center for further steps.

Schedule Your Test

After your application has been processed, you will receive a Candidate Information Bulletin with instructions for scheduling your test.
