In-Class Georgia Brokers Course

just what is a broker?

In Georgia, a broker is the advanced level of licensure in real estate. Under the law, a real estate company can have only one broker – referred to as a Qualifying Broker. The broker is the person responsible for all the actions of the licensees who work for the brokerage. It is under the broker’s authority that licensees are able to work in real estate.

then what’s an associate broker?

But not all licensees with a broker’s license run or manage a brokerage firm. Anyone with a broker’s license who wishes to continue working for another broker is called an Associate Broker.  An associate broker has met all the requirements for a broker’s license and can become a qualifying broker at any time by simply changing status with the Georgia Real Estate Commission.

what does it take to become a broker?

Georgia license law requires that a licensee seeking to obtain a broker’s license must have been actively licensed as a salesperson for 3 out of the past 5 years. The candidate must take and complete a 60-hour course as well as take the state broker’s license exam. Much of the exam is similar to the prelicense exam and covers the concepts of real estate, ownership, laws, regulations etc. But, the broker’s exam has sections such as ‘Information Gathering’ and ‘Decision Making’ designed to test the applicants actual experience in the field.
