I know a lot of you out there have asked this question before, and there are more who will ask the same question again. I’ll just answer it here so I can refer to this post whenever the same question pops-up.
To answer the question “What are the requirements for the Real Estate Brokers Licensure exam?”, let me quote Section 14 of the RESA Law IRR which is about the qualifications of applicants for examinations below:
“SEC. 14. Qualification of Applicants for Examinations. In order to be admitted to the licensure examination for real estate service, a candidate at the time of filing his/her application, shall establish to the satisfaction of the Board that he/she possesses the following qualifications:
