Getting Started as a Realtor

Listed below are the steps required in the normal progression to become active in our business:

1. PERSONAL INTERVIEW

An interview with the Broker/Owner, Ray Buncy, will be required prior to sponsorship for the license application. At this time Ray will explain in detail all the cost involved  in getting your real estate career started. This interview should take place prior to enrolling in the NYS 45-hour qualifying course. A resume from the applicant at this stage will be most helpful.

2. NYS 75-HOUR QUALIFYING COURSE

Register for the NYS 75-Hour Qualifying Course. The cost varies depending on the school. Upon completion of this course, you will receive a certificate from the school stating you have fulfilled New York State's requirements. This certificate also acts as your license application. The application needs to be completed and signed by you and your Broker prior to submission.

3. NYS LICENSE EXAM PROCESS

On any given Tuesday, except holidays, you may "Walk-in" to a test site to sit for the exam. You do not need an appointment.

Location: 65 Court St., Buffalo, NY
Dates: Tuesdays at 9:30AM & 1:30PM (except holidays)

4. APPLYING FOR THE LICENSE

Upon passing the exam, applicants will bring their fully completed real estate sales person application, the "pass" notice, and the application fee to  the Yorkshire Office. Your final license certificate will be mailed directly to the broker and a pocket card will be sent to you.

5. RECEIPT OF YOUR SALESPERSON'S LICENSE

You will be notified  when your license is in. At this time, you will meet with Ray Buncy  to review your real estate goals and complete some required paperwork.

6. APPLICATION TO THE BOARD OF REALTORS

Board policies require new licensees to make application within 30 days of licensing. New member board fees and MLS dues will be explained in detail during your initial interview with Ray.

7. BOARD ORIENTATION COURSE

Each board requires their members to complete a short orientation course that reviews policies, fair housing, etc.  The fees for this course are included in the membership dues to the Board of Realtors.

8. INDEPENDENT CONTRACTOR AGREEMENT FORM

Each new agent hired by his/her respective Board to complete the "Statement of Understanding" that spells out the rights and responsibilities of the broker and the Salesperson.

9. CONGRATULATIONS

When you reach this step, you are well on your way to success in the real estate business!
