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

A salesperson applicant in Massachusetts must be at least 18 years of age and have a valid social security number or tax identification number. There are no other general requirements.

Qualified candidates can earn a Massachusetts real estate salesperson license in (6) steps.

Step 1: Complete the 40-Hour Massachusetts Pre-license Education Course

Massachusetts salesperson license applicants must take an approved 40-hour pre-license course before being approved for the state licensing examination. A board-approved real estate school must administer the course.


Once you pass the course final, you will be issued a Massachusetts Board of Real Estate Educational Certificate form essential for your application. Your education is valid for two years from the certificate date.

Step 2: Obtain (3) Character Endorsements

Massachusetts requires all candidates to submit three candidate endorsements from people not related to the applicant. The endorsements also cannot be from classmates in the real estate course.

Step 3: Send in Your License Application

Massachusetts requires all applicants to be approved by the Board of Registration of Real Estate Brokers and Salesperson. First you must mail in all applicable documents to the state’s testing vendor, PSI.

The documents you need are listed and found in the Candidate Information Bulletin. All documents must be included in your application when you mail it in. PSI will not process incomplete documents. The application fee is $85.

Mail your application to:
PSI Examination Services
ATTN: Examination Registration MA RE
3210 E Tropicana Ave.
Las Vegas, NV 89121

Step 4: Schedule the State Exam

Once your license application is approved, you can schedule the exam. To schedule an exam online, go to Online scheduling is the easiest and fastest way to book your exam. For other registration options, see the Candidate Information Bulletin.

The exam fee is $85 paid to PSI via credit card, debit card, voucher, or check. If you are an active duty military or veteran, the fee is $54.

Refer to the Massachusetts Real Estate Candidate Handbook for information on examination schedules, site locations, exam security, reporting, and preparation.

Step 5: Take and Pass the State Exam

The Massachusetts state exam has a general portion and a state portion. The question numbers vary according to each exam form.

About the salesperson real estate exam:

  1. The state portion is 40 questions and you have 90 minutes.
  2. The general portion asks 80 questions and you have 150 minutes.
  3. The exam may include 5-10 "pretested" questions that will not count towards your score. These questions are not identified.
  4. A passing score is 70%.

You can see the specific breakdown of the number of questions asked in each topic area in the Candidate Handbook.

Immediately upon exam completion, you will receive a score report marked “pass” or “fail.”

Step 6: Receiving Your License

If you pass the exam, you will receive your Massachusetts Salesperson License immediately at the test center, as long as you’ve met the licensing requirements and paid the licensing fee. All candidates must be prepared to get their license at the testing center.

Licensing fees are prorated and are calculated at the test center. Salesperson fees typically range from $103-150. PSI also charges a $12 licensing fee.

License fees can be paid by credit card, personal check, cashier’s check, or money order made payable to “PSI.”

Once you leave the test center with your license in hand, congratulations! You are a Massachusetts 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.
