How to Obtain a Texas Real Estate Salesperson License Through KC Continuing Education offerings:

Getting your salesperson’s license:

To be eligible to apply for a real estate salesperson license, an individual must be a citizen of the United States or a lawfully admitted alien, eighteen (18) years of age or older and a legal resident of Texas.

The individual must furnish the Texas Real Estate Commission (TREC) with satisfactory evidence of completing 180 classroom hours in the following courses. Evidence must be turned in with your application.

You must complete the following courses:

  • Real Estate Principles and Practice I (30 hours)
  • Real Estate Principles and Practice II (30 hours)
  • Real Estate Law of Agency (30 hours)
  • Real Estate Law of Contracts (30 hours)
  • Real Estate Promulgated Contracts (30 hours)
  • Real Estate Finance (30 hours)

You are now ready to make application for your salesperson’s license. Follow the steps as outlined on the TREC website. A salesperson is licensed to act on behalf of a broker and may not act as a real estate licensee independently. A Salesperson may only work for one broker in Texas at a time. Texas does not require an applicant to have a high school diploma or college degree.

You can contact the Texas Real Estate Commission in the following ways:

By mail:

Texas Real Estate Commission
P.O. Box 12188
Austin, TX 78711-2188

By phone: (512) 936-3000

By web: www.trec.state.tx.us

Forms can be found on the Texas Real Estate Commission’s website. We strongly recommend that you check the website for any changes to the rules and regulations.

Pursuant to §1101.3521 of the Real Estate License Act, any person applying for or renewing a broker or salesperson license must provide their fingerprints, in a specified format, so that an FBI criminal history check can be performed. These fingerprint requirements apply only to brokers and salespersons, not to other TREC license types. Once fingerprints are on file with DPS for a TREC license, a licensee will not need to be fingerprinted for subsequent renewals. The following six courses are required to fulfill your license educational requirements. Some courses meet on Mondays and Wednesdays for five weeks.  Some courses meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays for five weeks.  No classes will be held during Spring Break (week of March 11, 2020).
