I normally don’t like shameless self-promotion, but I thought in this particular case due to the gravity of the situation, it was warranted.  Also, this post is about a month overdue, but I did not feel like posting it at the time due to the loss of our dear black lab “Moose”. 

After ten years in the Real Estate business, late last year in a conversation with one of my old brokers from my previous brokerage in our initial interview with each other it was proposed that I may look into getting my Texas Real Estate Broker License.  I did a little research and discovered that based on my previous experience and education that I met all of the requirements to obtain my Texas Real Estate Broker License except for one core Brokerage real estate course. 

Perhaps if I had known that before, I would have sought out my broker license years before, but never the less.  I ordered my Brokerage course and set out on completing it.  It was a sixty-hour course and would require some time commitment on my part.  Unfortunately for me at the time I ordered my course late last year, unbeknownst to me that I would have three, yes three medical surgeries in about a two month time span at the end of the year.  So my course start date was basically delayed till the beginning of this year.

I completed my course work in March/April of this year and turned in my application to the Texas Real Estate Commission.  It was approved shortly after and I set out studying for my Texas Real Estate Broker Exam.  As luck would have it, earlier in the year, the Texas Real Estate Commission decided that they would make the test harder for individuals to pass by raising the passing score for broker applicants.  They also increased the overall difficulty of the test in general.  

In order to pass the Texas Real Estate Broker Exam, an individual most show knowledge in several different areas of Real Estate.  This exam assesses the individual's knowledge and understanding of the complex federal laws and regulations related to handling real estate transactions, the real estate laws and regulations of the state of Texas, and the basic principles and standard practices associated with carrying out real estate transactions. 

The specific topics covered in the state section of the exam include topics such as:  commission duties and powers, licensing, standards of conduct, agency and brokerage concerns, contracts, and specialized real estate concerns including community property, foreclosures, landlord and tenant issues and concerns, and a variety of similar topics. 

The specific topics covered in the national section of the exam includes topics such as:  property ownership, land use controls and regulation, valuation and market analysis, financing, laws of agency, required disclosures, contracts, transfer of property, legal and ethical concerns in real estate practice, real estate calculations, and specialized real estate concerns including the management of business opportunities, commercial properties, leasing properties, and subdivisions.

So after much preparation over the last several months I was able to pass both sections of the Texas Real Estate Broker Exam at the end of July and received my Texas Real Estate Broker License shortly after, at the beginning of August.

I look at the last 10-11 years of my real estate career as the equivalency of a Bachelors degree in Real Estate, and by acquiring my Real Estate Broker License as my Graduate degree in Real Estate.  Now it’s time to move on to my PHD in Real Estate, we will see where that road takes us.

What does this mean to my clients and customers? It means that I am more committed than ever to serve your best interest and look out for all your real estate needs.

Stay tuned for my upcoming post, How to pass your real estate salesperson or broker exam the first time, and also my decision on where to hang my hat, (real estate hat) that is.
