What do I have to do to get my real estate license in Louisiana, and how much does it cost?
here's the answer to all your questions:
Prerequisites for becoming a real estate agent in Louisiana are pretty straightforward. New agents must:
be over 18 years old;
have a high school diploma (or GED equivalent);
complete 90 hours of pre-licensing education from a certified instructor in Louisiana;
pass a criminal background check;
pass standardized testing; and
sign up with a Louisiana real estate broker and provide proof of errors and omissions insurance.
One huge “hack” you need to know about: the LREC will often accept college coursework or other education in lieu of some or most of the pre-licensing education requirement. For many, this could mean shaving off 40-60 hours of pre-licensing education requirements. To get credit for prior coursework, simply submit your school transcripts to the LREC with a letter requesting credit. Here is the LREC’s contact information
