The first step: Get a license
In order to become a Realtor you must first obtain a real estate license. This is a list of web-sites for each province where you can find all the information you require on licensing. Licensing requirements involve coursework and passing a provincial test. You will also take post-licensing coursework after you earn your license; and most provinces require continuing education throughout your career to keep your license active.
If you're looking for a career that enables you to control your workday and offers a direct correlation between your effort and reward - with unlimited potential on the reward side - real estate sales might be a good fit. It's not easy. But when you surround yourself with other serious professionals you realize an immediate benefit - because you see first-hand the habits and strategies that work and you're motivated to emulate the success you're witnessing. That's a core of the RE/MAX Concept. Add in all the other RE/MAX advantages, and you can see that for some, RE/MAX isn't just where you want to be at the peak of your real estate career, it's also where you want to be at the start.

"100 Days to Greatness": Real estate boot camp
Regardless of the reason that a newly licensed agent joins a RE/MAX brokerage, some brokerages encourage, or even require, the new agent to complete the "100 Days to Greatness - RE/MAX Edition" program via the RE/MAX Satellite Network. This proven program is also used by agents coming from other brokerages who want to follow a specific strategy to ensure their performance is of RE/MAX caliber.
