Sales Agent License Requirements

Individuals who perform any act of real estate services in Texas need a Sales Agent License and sponsorship from a licensed broker. Sales agents must be licensed by the Real Estate Commission and can act on behalf of a real estate broker and their clients. Purchasing the sales agent package and selecting Texas will provide you with national exam prep questions as well as Texas-specific sales agent practice questions.

Minimum Requirements to Apply for the Sales Agent License

  • Basic: To apply for a license, you must be 18 years of age or older, be a US citizen or lawfully admitted alien, and complete 180 hours of pre-license educations. You will also need to pay all applicable fees, have your fingerprints electronically taken, complete a background check, and provide all required documentation.
  • Education: Sales Agent candidates must complete one hundred eighty (180) hours of real estate education in real estate principles/fundamentals from an approved real estate school in Texas.

Texas does not have a specific reciprocity agreement with other states, but if you currently hold an active license in another state and passed the national portion of an exam that is ARELLO approved, the national portion of the exam may be waived.
  • Honesty: License applicants must be honest and truthful. Conviction of a crime may result in the denial of a license. The failure to reveal a criminal conviction on an original license application may also result in the denial of a license. You may want to consider a request for a fitness determination if you are unsure whether you will meet the qualifications from the Texas Real Estate Commission.
  • Fees: The Texas application fee is $205 and the Texas exam fee is $54. There may be supplemental fees for fingerprinting, recovery, and paper processing.
