The first step: Get a license
In order to become a Realtor you must first obtain a real estate license. This is a list of web-sites for each province where you can find all the information you require on licensing. Licensing requirements involve coursework and passing a provincial test. You will also take post-licensing coursework after you earn your license; and most provinces require continuing education throughout your career to keep your license active.

Home of the Best Agents®
Most agents join RE/MAX after already achieving some level of success in real estate sales. But RE/MAX also attracts agents who are just starting their real estate careers. This usually occurs under one of the following scenarios.
Typical agents starting their real estate careers with RE/MAX:
- A RE/MAX Broker/Owner sees potential in an individual who has achieved sales or other success in another profession.
- A RE/MAX office brings in an enthusiastic new licensee who has the motivation, commitment and desire to succeed in real estate sales.
- An existing RE/MAX agent who has his or her own sales team, or is developing such a team, adds a newly licensed agent to the team to serve as an assistant or to serve as a buyer or listing specialist. The team leader often sees benefit in being able to train the new licensee in the specific marketing, sales and service strategies of the team.
- An existing RE/MAX agent brings in a newly licensed spouse, child or other relative to help with the business, or to be groomed to ultimately run the business.
- Some agents or agent teams bring in unlicensed assistants who are new to the business. In most states, unlicensed assistants are strictly prohibited from performing a number of duties connected to a real estate transaction. Sometimes, these unlicensed assistants pursue licensing so they can serve the team as a licensed assistant or buyer or listing specialist. Ultimately such individuals might transition into a role as an independent agent within the same brokerage.
“100 Days to Greatness”: Real Estate Boot Camp
Regardless of the reason that a newly licensed agent joins a RE/MAX brokerage, some brokerages encourage, or even require, the new agent to complete the “100 Days to Greatness – RE/MAX Edition” program via the RE/MAX Satellite Network. This proven program is also used by agents coming from other brokerages who want to follow a specific strategy to ensure their performance is of RE/MAX caliber. Even some existing RE/MAX agents go through the program to refocus their efforts on growing their business.
Designed for RE/MAX, 100 Days to Greatness is an intensive training program that taps the resources of one of the most successful and highly regarded coaches in the industry: Brian Buffini. No travel is required.
