Getting a Real Estate License

The Kansas Real Estate Commission, requires that you must be at least 18 years old, be a high school graduate or GED recipient and have completed the following steps to obtain your real estate license:

  1. The first step is to complete a 30 hour Principles of Real Estate class. This class must be taken from an accredited real estate school. Many have daytime and evening classes to accommodate your schedule. There are also home study classes available. After completing this class, you will receive a certificate of completion and candidate handbook. You must have your certificate of completion prior to registering for the real estate exam.
  2. The next step is to complete the licensing examination. The exam is administered by Pearson Vue Professional Centers. They have various testing times available and you can register by phone or online. The candidate handbook gives you instructions for pre-registering.
  3. There are two portions of the test; the general and the state. The questions are multiple choice with 80 questions on the general portion and 30 on the state. You must pass both by 70%. If you pass one and not the other you may retake the portion that you did not pass by rescheduling your test. The full $75 fee will apply each time you take the exam.
  4. When you begin your Principles of Real Estate class, you will receive instructions and materials necessary to get fingerprinted and you must then submit your fingerprints to the Kansas Real Estate Commission who will do a background check with the KBI and FBI. This can be completed at any time and should be done as soon as possible so as to avoid any delays in getting your license.
  5. Your next step will be to complete the 30 hour Kansas Real Estate Practice class.
  6. At any time before or during this process you will need to decide with which company you want to associate. Be sure to make appointments with brokers and go on these interviews early.

 

Interview Process

We would love the opportunity to meet you in person. Please contact us at call 316.292.3991 and it will be our pleasure to set up a time us meet.

 

Sample Questions for Your Broker Interview

  • What kind of training do you provide? 
    • The classes that you take to get your real estate license only partially prepare you to sell real estate. It is imperative that you associate with a company that has an outstanding training program. Be sure to ask then for a calendar of training times and topics.
  • What office services does your company provide?
  • What is your advertising policy?
  • Are there monthly, technology or transaction fees?
  • Do you have an office Policy and Procedures Manual?
  • Do you have office meetings and when are they?
  • What are the commission split options?
  • Is your company paperless? 
  • What technology do you provide?

Once you pass the licensing examination, you will need to submit everything with your fees to the Kansas Real Estate Commission (KREC). Your broker and office staff can help you complete this. You will receive your license in approximately two weeks. Once your broker receives your license, you may begin your new career in real estate.

“J.P. Weigand has been a wonderful extension of my Real Estate career which began under the guidance and direction of my father, Ed Clarke.

After 24 years I am still having a great time growing my business within a company that embraces my ideas and allows me to innovate. The residential industry has changed over the last 38 years and the Weigand organization continues to look for ways to be exceptional in their deliverance of service in a highly competitive environment...

Weigand Referral Company

We know that you’ve worked hard to develop and nurture your business relationships. Do you have a large network from which you would like to benefit even after retirement? The Weigand Referral Company was formed to give real estate agents who want to keep their real estate license, but are not actively listing and selling, another option. An agent may hang their license with this company for a small administrative fee, and a yearly fee billed in January. It is the agent’s responsibility to keep their real estate license current with the KREC by attending any required continuing education, and paying any license renewal fees. They may not list and sell as long as their license is hung with this company. They may only give referrals and accept referral fees for doing so. Why give up all of those relationships that you’ve worked so hard to develop over the years? We have professional, highly trained agents that will take care of your sphere of influence as if it were their own so that deals are closed and you get your referral fee and maintain your reputation.
