@Kenneth Wiley At least where I'm from, there is a pretty low cost to get in. Around $1,000 to get started, and around $1,000 in yearly fees after that. Most if not all of that can be put on a credit card. Hope that helps.
Not sure where she is, but in NY she would have to get her Salespersons license and work under a broker for at least 2 years. After she has completed X deals, then she can take the broker class and apply for the broker license. Total cost for all that ($800 maybe less). Now the actual act of joining the board, a supervising brokerage and selling those X houses is a completely different animal which may cost in the 10's of thousands easily.
Hope it helps some.
Maybe if she can't afford a RE license, she should rethink stuff.
There's a lot more in startup costs of marketing yourself as a broker.
