Minnesota real estate salesperson’s requirements are simple: you must be at least 18 years of age, complete a total 90-hours of an approved pre-license course of study, find a Minnesota-licensed broker to associate with, and pass the licensure exam.
Earn your Minnesota real estate salesperson license in four steps.
Step 1: Complete 90-Hour Minnesota Salesperson Pre-license Course Bundle
Take and pass three 30-hour education courses known as Course I, Course II, and Course III. These courses cover the real estate industry, real estate law, contracts, financing, property classification, and more.
You can take the courses online or through in-person classes, as long you take the courses from Minnesota Department of Commerce approved education providers.
You receive your course completion certificate for each course after passing its final exam.
Step 2: Apply for the State Exam
After completing the 30 hours of Course I, you are eligible to apply for the Minnesota Real Estate Salesperson Exam.
Visit the Pearson VUE website to find a testing center near you and to make an online exam reservation. The exam will cost $63 paid to Pearson VUE by credit card, electronic check, or voucher. You may also call (833) 273-1946 to schedule your exam.
Refer to the candidate handbook for more testing information.
Step 3: Take and Pass the State Exam
The Minnesota state exam is divided into two sections. The general section covers national topics and is alloted 2.5 hours to complete. The state portion covers Minnesota-specific topics and is alloted 1.5 hours to complete. You must take and pass both parts of the exam with a score of 75 or higher.
Immediately upon exam completion, candidates receive a score report marked as “pass” or “fail.” You must pass both exam sections to pass the overall exam.If you fail one section, you can retake just the failed portion.
There is not a limit to the number of retakes for the Minnesota Real Estate Salesperson Exam.
Step 4: Find a Sponsoring Licensed Real Estate Broker
You must be associated with a licensed real estate broker to qualify for a Minnesota real estate salesperson license. Find a real estate broker who will sponsor you and submit your real estate license application on your behalf. You must apply for your license within one year of passing the state exam. Some application questions may require further documentation from you.
The initial real estate salesperson license fee totals $110.
The Department of Commerce will notify your real estate broker once your application has been approved. Congratulations! You are now a Minnesota 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.

Real estate agents have no limits to how much money they can make. The more leads you source and close, the more money you can earn!
Stop working a boring 9-5 desk job. Real estate agents set their own schedules. By law, your sponsoring broker can’t dictate when and where to work!
With you creating your schedule, you decide how to commit your time. Slowly transition from your day job or use your license to earn extra income on the side by working part-time. Or, dive into full-time and create your dream job.
Holding a real estate license allows you to sell or lease all types of real estate throughout Minnesota. This includes residential and commercial real estate.
All students have 12 months from the time of purchase to complete the RealEstateU 90-hour Minnesota Real Estate Salesperson Course (including the course exams).
All courses are eligible for a refund within 30 days of purchase, and only if the student has not completed more than 50% of the course. All refunds issued are subjected to a $20 admin charge. Please read our Terms and Conditions for more details.
