What are the differences between a real estate salesperson and a real estate broker in California?

A real estate salesperson is an individual who is starting a career in the industry. This is the first license that can be obtained in the real estate sales profession and is an “entry-level” designation. As a licensed California real estate salesperson, you must now work under a licensed California real estate broker. 

After you have acquired experience as a salesperson, you will qualify to get a real estate broker license. Once you obtain your California real estate broker’s license, you can then open a brokerage firm and have salespersons work under you in your company.
