How to Get a Real Estate Salesperson’s License in Maine

You can qualify for a Maine sales agent license if you:

If you meet this basic qualification, follow these (4) steps to earn your Maine real estate sales agent license.

Step 1: Take the 55-hour Sales Agent Course

All new sales agents must take a 55-hour sales agent qualifying course from an approved course provider. The course teaches about essential industry topics like the Maine Real Estate Commission, agency reMEtionships, and real estate practice. See the minimum guidelines for the Sales Agent Course.

During the course, you will take three quizzes and one final exam. Passing the course requires a grade of at least 75%. You have one year after finishing the course to take your state licensing exam.

Step 2: Schedule your state exam

Maine Real Estate Commission contracted with PearsonVUE to administer the state licensing exam. Schedule your licensing exam online at or call 877-543-5220.

You must make your reservation at least 24 hours before your intended test date. Refer to the Candidate Information Bulletin or the website for test center information.

Your exam fee is $85 paid directly to PearsonVUE using a credit card, debit card, voucher, or electronic check.

Step 3: Pass the state licensing exam

Bring to the testing center your Course Completion Certificate from the Sales Agent course and two forms of identification. One form must be government-issued, photo-bearing, and have your signature. The second ID must have a signature.

The Maine Sales Agent Licensing Exam has:

  1. General (or national) portion. You have 2.5 hours to answer 80 questions.
  2. A state or Maine MEw portion. You have 1.5 hours to answer 40 questions.
  3. Up to five “pre-test” questions that do not count for your score.

The Candidate Information Bulletin contains content outlines and the number of questions per topic.

You will receive the score report at the test center. Passing is a scaled score of 75 and above.

Passing candidates get a report marked “pass” and information on the application process. Failing candidates receive a numeric score, diagnostic information, and retake instructions.

Step 4: Apply for the sales agent license

You have one year after passing the Maine licensing exam to apply for your license. Maine has the option to apply online or to submit a paper application.

The Sales Agent license application requires:

  • Your agency affiliation information and broker authorization
  • Sales Agent Course Completion Certificate
  • Sales Agent Exam Score Report

The license application fee is $121 and includes your criminal records check fee. Make any checks payable to the “Maine State Treasurer.”

An approved sales agent license is valid for two years and is nonrenewable. You must work towards earning your associate broker’s license.

Once the MREC approves your application, you are licensed as a practicing sales agent. Congratulations!

My husband spotted the Real Estate U Groupon deal and he said I should look into it. Honestly at first I thought it had to be too good to be true. But after reading reviews and doing some research I said: “What the heck?!” For the price I really didn’t have much to lose.

I’m so happy I took the leap of faith! I loved the audible learning and that I could literally bring it with me wherever I went! I finished in 3 months! Trust me when I say if I can do it you can do it. I’m a very busy mother of 3 and they all have extracurricular activities, but somehow I buckled down and finished.

I did take a live test prep class at a local real estate school just to cover all bases. I reviewed all the quizzes from all the chapters to prepare. My advice would be to take your time when you test. I was so nervous but I took my time because I knew the material I just had to take my time!
Passing on my first try felt amazing!

I would not be here had I not had the amazing opportunity to complete the real estate licensing course via Real Estate U! I highly recommend the Real Estate U course. In fact my oldest son has decided to take the course as well!

I am currently working as a part time real estate agent for Century 21 APD Associates, in the beautiful city of El Paso, Texas. I wanted to get into real estate to become my own boss and I am looking forward to building a 6 figure income. I closed my first deal in October and looking to close on my second this December.

To obtain my license I chose RealEstateU. The courses were extremely helpful in passing state and national exam on my first try. I like the fact that I could study at my pace and I was able use my mobile to access my courses when on the road or when waiting on doctor appointments with my children.

I was able to go back and listen again and again to the parts that I did not get from the beginning. This is something that wouldn't have been provided by being in a classroom setting. If you are looking to obtain your license just be persistent and don't give up on your dream! I was able to invest in this course and more than tripled my return on the first home which I sold short after I obtained my real estate license.

If this is something you think you'll enjoy try it out and take the risk. Why not risk on something that has the potential to double or triple your income on the side. Jump on the opportunity of getting your license, which honestly is the easy part. And then go all in on the process helping clients and customers get what they want, which is a great home buying/selling experience.

I (still am) a licensed auto insurance claims adjuster for a major insurance company. I held that position for 7.5 years. My family dynamic was changing and myself or my husband needed to be home more for our blended family of 5 children.

Real Estate allows me to regulate my schedule so I can dedicate time to my children and their activities. I will be working for LIV Realty in Frisco, TX and will be working full-time. My goals moving forward are to continue learning, networking and growing towards my own business. I plan on becoming a broker one day.

I loved the ease of the course. I was able to navigate easily and picked up where I left off each day. If I had any questions I received a response back very quickly from the RealEstateU support team. I was able to study and retain information easily. The workbook and the glossary were easy to follow and allowed me to print them to take with me in the event that I was not able to use my laptop. I loved that the course was accessible from a cell phone as well. We had a planned trip across the United States and I was able to study on my cell phone as we travelled 9 states. I have already recommended the course to a few of my friends!

Thank you so much for your help over the last few weeks. I rushed to get through the course because I am so excited to start working in the field as a NYS realtor. I thought this would have a negative impact on me toward the end when I was ready to test, but I feel I retained a lot of the info and am happy with the results.
