Choosing to become a REALTOR® opens up an exciting career that is both personally and financially rewarding. To start your journey, we recommend visiting the Real Estate Council of BC website to learn what it takes to get licensed.
As well, we recommend interviewing real estate brokerages in the area you wish to focus, to determine which would be the best fit for you. There are many criteria to consider during this stage, including what services and supports are offered for the fees charged – each brokerage is different. When starting out, you will be making a significant investment in your marketing materials based on the brokerage you choose and though you can switch at any time, it’s smart to make an informed choice at the beginning of your career.
If you join a brokerage that is a member of the Fraser Valley Real Estate Board, you will become a member of our Board, the BC Real Estate Association, the Canadian Real Estate Association and a REALTOR®. This membership provides you with a wide array of key business tools and supports, including the MLS®, education and professional standards. All members pledge to uphold the REALTOR® Code, which is a higher standard than licensing requirements.
