Q). How do I get a Real Estate License in Hawaii?
A). It’s just a few simple steps:
Sounds simple enough, but let’s look at the details:
Finding a certified Pre-licensing school is relatively easy. However, finding a school which is conveniently located and offers classes that fit your schedule can be quite difficult. Therefore, many students are opting to take the class online, as it allows much more flexibility. The cost of pre-licensing courses vary from school to school, but you would probably be looking at $400 to $500.
*Don’t forget to ask us about our 100% tuition reimbursement program!
In the meantime, you will need to create an eHawaii account (https://login.ehawaii.gov/lala/).
Once you pass the school’s final exam, you will need to take the Hawaii licensing exam. The exam is administered by PSI (https://www.psiexams.com/hire). The fee to take the exam is $61 per attempt. After passing the State exam, you can then sign on with a Broker. Costs to be associated with a Broker vary widely, especially the cost of Errors and Omissions Insurance (E&O). In some offices, this fee could be as much as $2000 per year. Many also charge for their training program.
So you see, your upfront investment is about $827-$1,117. This does not include the cost of advertising yourself.
At Aloha Properties, we do not charge any training fees to our agents. We also offer a Pre-licensing school tuition reimbursement plan for all newly licensed individuals. Our E&O insurance fee is just $40 per month. We will provide you with guided support in starting your business and can also make affordable, full color, low cost, advertising pieces in-house. Best of all, our Broker is readily available to you when you have questions or need help. You’ll like our friendly agents and staff.
