Frequently asked questions about the real estate brokers licensure exam

I expect another barrage of questions from those who might be interested with becoming licensed brokers so I came up with this list of frequently asked questions:

If you simply want to start investing in real estate, you can actually do that without the need to be a licensed real estate broker. Checkout this post to learn more:

    • hello sir jay;
      I am from Leyte. an employee in the office of the municipal assessor for more than 20 years. Unfortunately, I was not able to avail the automatic eligibility due to lack of information & I am very much willing to be a licensed real estate appraiser. Is there still a chance for me to avail the registration w/out examination? If none, Can you recommend any nearest review center who conduct review on real estate appraiser? or is there any online reviewer that you can recommend me? tnx!

  1. Dear Sir:
    I wish to pass the exam of RE Appraiser this July of 2013 before BS-REM will finished their first batch.
    is there any online reviewer that you can recommend me?

    Thanks.

  2. The last day of filing for the exam is Feb 25, 2013, however this is a non-working holiday. Is the PRC open to accept exam application that day? Thanks!

    Reply
    • Hi Brian, it turns out February 25, 2013 is a special public holiday, but only for schools, so the PRC should be accepting exam applications on that day. Good-luck!

  3. Hi Sir Jay!

    Required ba na magkaroon ka ng formal review before you can take the real estate brokers licensure exam or pwedeng self-study na lang yung review na gagawin mo?

  4. If you are a private practitioner as appraiser for more than 10 years, i’m I qualified to registration without exam. Is that law entitled only to government appraiser.

    Reply
    • Yes, that only applies to government appraisers as per Section 20 (c) of the RESA Law IRR.

      I have quoted the whole of Section 20 of the RESA Law IRR below for your reference.

      Section 20, Rule III of the RESA Law IRR

      SEC. 20. Registration Without Examination. Upon application and payment of the required fees, the following shall be registered, and shall be issued by the Board and the Commission a certificate of registration and a professional identification card without taking the prescribed examination:

      (a) Those whose, on the date of the effectivity of R.A. No. 9646 or as of 30 July 2009, are already licensed as real estate brokers, real estate appraisers or real estate consultants by the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) by virtue of Ministry Order No. 39, as amended: Provided, that they are in active practice as real estate brokers, real estate appraisers, and real estate consultants, and that they have undertaken relevant Continuing Professional Education (CPE) or Continuing Education Program (CEP) to the satisfaction of the Board: Provided, further, that the following practitioners shall be allowed to register:

      1. Any holder of a valid DTI license who has earned fifteen (15) Continuing Education Program (CEP) or CPE credit units;

      2. Those who had failed to renew their DTI License prior to 30 July 2009 but who have earned twenty-four (24) CEP credit units from accredited service providers as per M.O. 39 or CPE credit units from CPE Council Accredited Provider from 2007 to July 30, 2011;

      3. Those who had passed the 2009 & 2008 licensure examinations given by the DTI but who had failed to obtain their license upon the effectivity of the R.A. No. 9646 and who have earned fifteen (15) CEP or CPE credit units;

      4. Those who had passed the 2007 licensure examinations given by the DTI but who had failed to obtain their license upon the effectivity of the R.A. No. 9646 and who have earned eighteen (18) CEP or CPE credit units;

      5. Those who had passed the DTI licensure examinations in 2006 and prior years but who had failed to obtain their license upon the effectivity of R.A .No. 9646 and who have earned one hundred twenty (120) CEP or CPE credit units;

      Provided, finally, that real estate practitioners falling under the above-described categories who fail to comply with the necessary CPE requirements within two (2) years after the effectivity of R.A. No. 9646, on or before 30 July 2011, shall be required to take the Board licensure examination for real estate service practitioners;

      (b) Assessors and appraisers who, on the date of the effectivity of R.A. No. 9646 or as of 30 July 2009, hold permanent appointments and are performing actual appraisal and assessment functions for the last five (5) years, have passed the Real Property Assessing Officer (RPAO) examination conducted and administered by the Civil Service Commission (CSC) in coordination with the Department of Finance (DOF), and have undertaken relevant CPE to the satisfaction of the Board; and

      (c) Assessors and appraisers who, on the date of the effectivity of R.A. No. 9646 or as of 30 July 2009, hold permanent appointments and have at least ten (10) years actual experience in real property appraisal or assessment and have completed at least one hundred twenty (120) hours of accredited training on real property appraisal conducted by national or international appraisal organizations or institutions/entities, duly certified by the Department of Finance (DOF) or any other pertinent national government agencies or Government Owned and Controlled Corporations (GOCC) as the case may be, recognized by the Board and relevant CPE credit units to the satisfaction of the Board.

      Those falling under categories (b) and (c) shall register with the Board after they shall have complied with the requirements for registration as real estate appraisers, and have completed twenty four (24) CPE credit units. Provided, that those seeking to be licensed to a new credential level shall be required to take the pertinent Board licensure examination for real estate service practitioners.

      Those so exempt under the aforementioned categories shall file their application within two (2) years from the effectivity of Republic Act No. 9646 or until 30 July 2011. Provided, that the renewal of the professional identification card is subject to the provisions of Section 17, Art. III of R. A. No. 9646.

  6. Dear Mr. Castillo,

    Please give us some information, if you have any when to expect any resolution by the PRB-RES for release within this year regarding the registration of Appraisers without examination who have filed their applications more than a year ago.

    Thanks.

  7. hi sir

    i would like to ask if you happen to know the next real estate brokerage exam for 2013 after the march 2013 exam. i was so late for the review.

    thank you

    Reply
    • Hi Shiela, they normally conduct this only once a year. The next will most probably be on March 2014. You can still catchup for the review on January, I’m sure there will be new CRESR’s on January 2013. Goodluck!

  8. I checked the prc website and it listed Lucena as one of the site in real estate broker examination but your list deleted Lucena as one of the venue. Is Lucena still one of the Venue for real estate broker examination? thanks
