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

In Maryland, an applicant must be at least 18 years of age and have demonstrated good character and reputation.

If you meet these basic requirements, you can earn your Maryland salesperson’s license in (5) steps.

Step 1: Complete Pre-license Education

Maryland requires salesperson applicants to take 60 hours of pre-licensing education. The 60-hour pre-licensing course must be taken from an approved and state-certified real estate school. The pre-license course can be taken online or in person.

Step 2: Schedule Your State Exam

Your course provider will send your testing eligibility to PSI upon successful completion of the course. Your testing eligibility is good for (1) year after passing the course.

After PSI receives your eligibility from your course provider, you will get an email with scheduling instructions. Find the testing schedule, locations, and exam information on the PSI website or the state Candidate Handbook.

Online registration is the easiest and fastest way to set up your state licensing exam. You can also call (855) 744-0318 for registration assistance, submit a standard mail or an email registration.

The Maryland Salesperson Exam costs $44 and is payable directly to PSI.

Step 3: Take and Pass the State Exam

The Maryland state salesperson exam is divided into a national and state section with a total of 110 questions worth 135 points. The passing score on each section is 70%.

The Salesperson Pre-licensure Exam includes:

  1. National section of 80 questions with a time allowance of 90 minutes.
  2. State section of 30 questions with a time allowance of 30 minutes.

You are notified on-screen immediately upon completion of the exam if you have passed or failed. The exam report will also be sent to the Maryland Real Estate Commission.

You must pass both portions of the exam before applying for your license. You have one year from the date on your course completion certificate to pass both sections of the state licensing exam.

Step 4: Choose a Sponsoring Broker

You’ll need a sponsoring licensed real estate broker to receive an active real estate license in Maryland. The application will require you to submit the intended broker’s registration number and branch office location, if applicable.

Step 5: Submit Your License Application

You have one year from passing the state licensing exam to submit your licensing application before it expires. The Maryland Real Estate Commission uses an online application process..

You’ll receive an email 3-5 business days after passing the state exam with your registration number and application instructions. The original license application fee is $90.

Once you appear in the state database, congratulations! You are now a Maryland real estate salesperson.

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.
