Finally, the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) has made it official, the next Real Estate Brokers Licensure Exam will be on March 27, 2011. My lawyer (who also happens to be my wife) sent me a copy of PRC’s Schedule of Licensure Examinations for Year 2011 and I have verified it with PRC’s official website.


If you will read the schedule from the PRC, it is clearly indicated that the date for the Real Estate Brokers exam shall be March 27, 2011, which falls on a Sunday.

I wish all aspiring real estate brokers, appraisers, and consultants the best of luck!

To our success and financial freedom!
