My name is Janelle Martin and I'm a new member located in Orlando, Florida. I've had a great interest in real estate for some time now and am looking for a way to get some experience on a part time basis. I don't have my license yet, but plan to attend classes and hopefully receive it by December 2017. An agent mentioned a Showing Assistant position to me and I found it to be one that I would enjoy. Do I absolutely have to be licensed to do that? Any other suggestions on getting my foot in the door prior to licensing? Thanks in advance for your help!
Good post. I am looking to get my real state license too, but I had not heard of a Showing Assistant. Seems like a good way to get your foot in the door and learn from someone more experienced. From what I've quickly read up on it doesn't seem like you need a license. Look Here.
You might ask the agent, who told you about being a showing assistant, if you need a license for that job.
I just posted a question on how to get a license online and one site suggested to me was: Real Estate Express or check with your Real Estate Commission of Florida.
In the forums, I've also seen Larson and Climer recommended as good real estate schools in Florida.
@Jeremy Roll The agent that I spoke with did mention that you don't need a license as a Showing Assistant. But I've seen some postings that require a license due to the MLS requirements for the job. I guess it's a matter of preference. Thanks for the links for reading!
