Have you ever considered a career a real estate? If so, the Billings Adult Community Education program is offering a course on the process to becoming a Real Estate Agent. The course is offered Jan 24th, March 21, and June 20th, from 5-7 p.m.
To become a Real Estate Agent in the state of Montana you will have to pass a required course, a required sixty hours, and you will then need to take a test before you can be licensed. This course, offered by the Billings Adult Community Education, at the Lincoln Center in room 102, called Introduction to Real Estate (You can find it listed in the BACE brochure under this title) prepares its students for these initial steps toward licensure. For instance, this class will teach you what to expect from the State’s required coursework. You will learn how to sign up for the required coursework and you will then also learn the process of obtaining your license once the coursework is completed. You will learn the differences between a Real Estate Broker and a Real Estate Agent. You will learn how to choose a brokerage (a brokerage is the umbrella business servicing real estate and real estate agents), and the benefits to the different types of brokerages, so that you can find the one that best suits you and your business needs. The only required materials needed to take the course are a notebook and a pen. And before you come to the course make sure to write up a list of possible questions, so that any question that you may have, that’s not directly answered by the presentation, can be answered. Remember, this course is to prepare you for the initial steps toward becoming a real estate agent. The course benefits both the determined and the curious alike: the determined because it illuminates the finer details inherent in the path toward Real Estate licensure, and the curious, because this course may reveal that a path toward a career in real estate may not be suitable for everyone.
