  4. Hi Ronnie,

    If you have at least 5 consecutive years practice as a licensed real estate appraiser or 10 b years as a real estate broker, you are qualified to take the exam. I recommend you take review classes so you stand a good chance of passing. Contact the PRC for more details.

    Good luck!

  5. Sir, good day! I’m currently working as real estate consultant in a real estate company here in makati for 3 years, what am I suppose to do for this coming licensure exam for real estate consultant? I want to grab this opportunity. Do I need to study first or do I have the chance to take the exam without going to school first? Please give me the details. Thank’s a lot.

  6. Hi Chris,

    If you are referring to the real estate consultant exam, yes, you need to be a practicing broker or at least can prove that your license has been active/renewed for 10 years and have been a practicing or have a real estate appraiser license for 5 consecutive years prior to the consultant’s exam.

  7. Hi Sir, to be eligible, don’t I need at least 10 years experience as a broker? I am currently doing office work and never had experience with real estate but is interested. Thank you .

  8. Hi!

    Thanks for this info. I know several people who would be interested to take the exam and this would be great news to them.
