Texas Real Estate Brokers license requirements

Managing Real Estate Broker with Tim Riddle Broker Associate,Marsha Hardin Real Estate

 I was just reading the other day that they have changed the requirements for going from a salesman license to brokers license in Texas.  You use to have to have your salesman license two years before you qualified to take the brokers test, They raised it where you have to have a salesman license four years before your elgible for brokers license. Any thoughts?  Sure couldnt hurt the business at all.

Tim, I hold a Texas Broker's License and I think this change is good for Texas real estate.   The more experience a Broker has prior to getting the license, the better.  Holding a Broker's License means being held to a higher accountability.

I've been complaining about this same issue forever. To much Stupid out there taking responsibility for other agents, making us all look bad. LOVE THE CHANGE.

I agree with both of you !! I have seen some brokers that didnt know anymore than a new agent. Its good to upgrade our standards. Without standards you have nothing
