Why become a real estate agent?
If you’ve ever considered a fresh start in a lucrative career, there has never been a better time to become a real estate agent. As a real estate agent, you have the opportunity to help people with one of the biggest decisions of their life – buying a home! In addition to helping people, here are a few of the many reasons why becoming a licensed real estate agent could be the right fit for you:


You have the fulfilling task of helping people with their home buying or selling experience.


The economy ebbs and flows, but at the end of the day, there will always be customers in need of your services and support to buy and sell homes.


Make your own hours that work for you and your schedule.


You’ll have the chance to meet new people and be social in your community on a daily basis.


Take your career to the next level by becoming a licensed real estate broker. Be your own boss and build a team of your own.


The average salary for a real estate sales agent is $55,860*. Depending on your personal business goals, the sky’s the limit when it comes to your earning potential.


House flipper, property manager as well as any company that expands and builds new office sites, or has a land acquisition department.

*Bureau of Labor Statistics (2018)

How can I be sure a career in real estate is for me?
Real estate is, above all else, a customer service business. You will be involved in what will be one of the biggest purchases/sales in someone’s life. We would encourage you to sit down and review your career objectives and what you want to get from your career. Discuss those issues and goals with someone who knows first hand what the industry is like and then make your decision. See our Career Night section for more details.

Class Offering Questions

Do I have to take all the classes at once?
After purchasing classes from Hondros College have 6 months to complete them. All can be completed at any one of our multiple locations statewide, online, or mix & match to create your own custom schedule. Get started now!
What is the difference between online and Livestream learning?
Our online learning format is “self-paced,” meaning you can take courses on your own time, at your own pace. Livestream learning is instructor-led in real-time via Zoom.
Are there any similarities between online and Livestream learning?
Yes! Both online and Livestream learning feature our expert-developed course material that you can take from the comfort of your own home.
What are the benefits of the online learning format?
With our self-paced online learning format, you’ll go at your own speed through the courses. You’re not on a set schedule, so you can choose to take the courses anytime and anywhere with an internet connection. Our online course format features written material with recorded video of our experienced instructors mixed in to keep you engaged.
What are the benefits of Livestream learning?
Our Livestream courses are most similar to the classroom learning experience, as they are taught by an instructor via Zoom in real-time. It’s a great option for students who benefit from an interactive instructor experience. With Livestream learning, you’ll attend class virtually with other students at scheduled times, just like you would in the classroom!
How do I know which learning format works best for me?
When making the decision between online and Livestream learning, it’s important to think about your learning style and schedule. If you need the flexibility of learning when and where you want, our online option is the format for you – if you find that you learn better from an interactive instructor and have the time in your schedule to attend class, Livestream learning is for you.
Do I have to choose one or the other – Livestream OR online?
Great news, Hondros College gives you the ability to learn through a combination of both online and Livestream courses to complete real estate pre-licensing education.
Can I take real estate pre-licensing courses instead of buying a package?
While we recommend purchasing a package with everything you need, you do have the option to purchase individual courses. You can access real estate individual course options at this link or through our pre-licensing page here https://www.hondros.com/programs/real-estate-salesperson/ohio/pre-licensing/.
