How do I become a licensed real estate broker in Oregon?
To become a licensed real estate broker in Oregon, you need to begin by registering for an account in eLicense and apply for a broker license. When you apply for a broker license, you will need to pay a $300 nonrefundable application fee. Once your application has been processed, you will receive an Applicant ID number in your email.
Following your application, you will need to complete 150 hours of broker pre-license education. This needs to be done at an Agency-approved real estate school, like Portland Community College (PCC). When you sign up for the classes, you will need your Applicant ID number as well as your full name. Only after you have completed the classes will you have permission to take the license exam.
The classes you take through PCC will teach you about real estate and prepare you to take the exam. Once you have finished the education portion, you can schedule and pay for your licensing exams. After you have received passing scores on the national and state portions of the exam, you will need to pay and get fingerprinted for your background check while you are at the testing/exam center.
