How do I start a career in real estate? How can First Team help me do that?
Embarking on a career in real estate is an exciting journey, and First Team is your ideal partner to navigate this path. Our expertise lies in guiding new agents, like yourself, to successfully launch their careers in this dynamic field. The first step towards achieving your real estate license involves completing three essential real estate licensing classes. These classes are designed to equip you with the knowledge and skills necessary for the industry. Following this, your journey continues with the state real estate exam, a gateway to your promising career in real estate. With First Team by your side, you'll have the
support, guidance, and resources needed to thrive and succeed in the real estate world.
What real estate licensing classes do you offer?
Embarking on a career in California real estate begins with a crucial step: completing three foundational classes – Real Estate Principles, Real Estate Practice, and Legal Aspects of Real Estate. We are proud to partner with ADHI Schools, a leading educational provider renowned for their exceptional quality and commitment to student success in real estate education. Their comprehensive online program offers not only the required licensing courses but also thorough exam preparation, ensuring you are well-prepared for your real estate journey.

The beauty of this partnership lies in the flexibility it offers. You can start your courses at any time, making it easier to integrate this important education into your busy schedule. ADHI Schools' program is meticulously designed to cater to your learning pace and style, enabling you to absorb and retain the critical knowledge needed for a successful career in real estate. With  ADHI Schools, you're not just taking classes; you're setting the foundation for a thriving career in the real estate industry.
What happens when I’m done with licensing school?
After completing licensing school, you will be ready to begin the state application process. You will send your application through eLicensing and register for the California real estate exam.
What is the California real estate state exam like?
Salesperson Exam: 3 hours. 150 multiple-choice questions.
  • The examinations are given in a multiple-choice format. Answers are selected from four choices.
  • To pass the examination, you must correctly answer at least 70% of the questions.

Am I able to work with First Team as an agent once I get my license?
Absolutely! Joining First Team as a new agent is a fantastic choice. Once you complete your licensing education, a world of opportunities opens up for you here. We pride ourselves on our exclusive Power Curve training and mentorship programs, designed specifically to kickstart your career in real estate.
