BROKER LICENSE

BROKER LICENSE

The initial license for real estate sales in Illinois is a Broker license. Before you can take the state exam and apply for your license you must complete 90 hours of state approved courses. At Sure Win we provide 2 options to complete them.
  1. The SURE WIN 90 hour Hybrid Class - Choose this if you learn better in a class environment. Our program consists of 1/2 class and 1/2 self study. We review all the materials in class so you can solidify your knowledge and understanding.
  2. The SURE WIN 90 hour Self Study Course - Choose this if you want to learn on your own with a printed book. We provide a hard copy text book to review and then you complete chapter quizzes online for credit for the 75 hour Topics section. When completed you schedule your 15 hour Interactive class.
Also, SURE WIN provides to all students who pass our 90 hour Broker License school exams a CompuCram online exam prep program FREE (a $79 value) to better prepare you for the state exam. Active and retired military personnel contact us for a $50 discount on Broker License courses.
 
BROKER POST-LICENSE

BROKER POST-LICENSE

For the first renewal after obtaining a Broker license you are required to take a 30 hour Broker Post-License course. The state mandated course consists of 2 sections. The first section is a 15 hour Topics course that can be completed by self study, online, or in class. The second section is a 15 hour Interactive class that requires attendance in person or by live webcast. 
 
MANAGING BROKER LICENSE

MANAGING BROKER LICENSE

The upper real estate license in Illinois is a Managing Broker license. This is the license needed to sponsor yourself and others plus to manage and operate real estate offices. To get a Managing Broker license you are first required to be an active Broker licensee for 2 out of the last 3 years then complete 45 hours of a Managing Broker courses and pass the state exam.
 
ILLINOIS RECIPROCAL REAL ESTATE LICENSING

ILLINOIS RECIPROCAL REAL ESTATE LICENSING

Currently Illinois has reciprocity (some states call it mutual recognition) with Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Iowa, Nebraska, South Dakota, and Wisconsin. What this means is if you have a valid real estate license in any of these states you can get an Illinois real estate license simply by passing the State portion of the Illinois State exam (currently a 40 question test). To help licensees pass the test, Sure Win has put together a self study program to provide materials specifically for passing the Illinois exam.
 
FLORIDA RECIPROCAL REAL ESTATE LICENSING

FLORIDA RECIPROCAL REAL ESTATE LICENSING

Illinois currently has reciprocity with Florida (they call it mutual recognition). Due to the numerous requests Sure Win has found a comprehensive program specifically suited towards helping Illinois licensees get their Florida real estate license. While there is no education requirements, taking the test without any preparation could be costly as they charge for each time you take the exam. We have found a fully narrated interactive online program that not only teaches you what you need to know to pass the exam, but it also walks you through the process from beginning to end, step by step, explaining everything you need to do and take care of before and after the exam. For additional information and a link to the education program click on this link.
