Louisiana Real Estate Licensing

As the leading full-service real estate company in the region, GARDNER, REALTORS is committed to assisting you to achieve the highest level of success with your real estate career.  

To help you obtain your license, our Career Development Specialists and Sales Managers will recommend a nearby school with an excellent pass rate and evaluate whether you qualify for a GARDNER Scholarship (covers a significant portion of upfront mandatory pre-licensing costs, post-licensing Fast Start Training and other various start-up costs).

 
You must meet the following Louisiana Real Estate Commission (LREC) Salesperson’s base requirements:
  • Be at least 18 years old

  • Have a high school diploma (or GED equivalent)

  • Agree to submit a criminal background history (upon exam application)

 
If you meet the above LREC base requirements, you are ready to choose one of two Louisiana State Certified Real Estate Pre-Licensing School options:
  • Attend a Live Classroom Session - set schedule/time commitment

  • Take an Online Class - flexible schedule/time commitment

Once you complete the 90 hours of pre-licensing education, you will submit your license application to the State of Louisiana, and once on file, you can contact PSI Examination Services to schedule your test.

An optional step at this time is to attend an Exam Prep Course through a Pre-Licensing School or attend GARDNER’s Exam Cram.

 

You are now ready to take the Salesperson exam, which consists of the following two sections:
  • Louisiana State Exam

  • National Exam

You need to pass both sections with a score of 70% or better in order to submit the Pass Report to the LREC.

Once you pass both sections of the exam, you are ready to be sponsored by a licensed Real Estate Broker such as GARDNER, REALTORS. You will need to provide proof of your errors and omissions insurance to the LREC before your license will be issued to your sponsoring Broker.

*If you have real estate credits from your College/University coursework, you can send a written request, along with an original transcript, to the Louisiana Real Estate Commission for review toward the salesperson pre-licensing education requirements.
