Every now and then, people get frustrated when they call a real estate office to ask a very simple question about a real estate advertisement that they’ve seen, and they are told to call back later to talk to somebody with more knowledge or experience.
The reason behind the simple questions not being answered is that the State of Texas requires all people who participate in any part of a real estate transaction to have a Texas real estate license. If a real estate office secretary does not have a Texas real estate license, they can not answer many kinds of real estate questions even if they know the answer.
Becoming a licensed real estate salesperson, broker or real estate inspector in Texas can be a great reward.
For this reason, many real estate offices will not hire any secretarial help who is not licensed by the State of Texas as a real estate salesperson. Today with our economy so bad, jobs are sometimes hard to find.
For those who have a real estate license, part-time jobs with real estate brokers can often be found quicker than other types of jobs that are advertised to the general public.
To become licensed as a real estate person in the State of Texas, contact the Texas Real Estate Commission to look at their list of approved training providers for your area. Real estate training proof is required before the State will let you take a licensing exam. Texas keeps an approved list of training providers such as CELI-EDU.com so that it is easy to know who gives classes.
