eligibility requirements about becoming a realtor


According to Alabama real estate license law, any individual wishing to practice real estate in the State of Alabama must first earn a salespersons license. There are certain qualifications that must be met and a specific licensing process that must be followed to earn a salespersons license.

Qualifications for a Salesperson:

Any individual seeking an Alabama real estate license must:

  • Be trustworthy and competent so as to safeguard the interests of the public;
  • Cannot have had a real estate license rejected or revoked in any state during the previous two (2) years for any reason except failure to pass the state       exam;
  • Be nineteen (19) years old or older;
  • Be a United States citizen OR an individual legally present with appropriate documentation OR an alien with permanent resident status;
  • Must be a high school graduate or equivalent
  • Not been convicted of a felony or a crime involving moral turpitude

Now, if an individual isn't sure he or she will meet those requirements due to past incident with the law, the Alabama Real Estate Commission offers a "pre-screening" process to determine eligibility.
