Real Estate Salesperson Researching Program Requirements to Become a Real Estate Broker

Set Yourself Apart—Become a Broker

Update: As of April 5, 2019 the admissions deadline for the OREA Broker program has been extended from April 30, 2019 to the end of May 2020. View the follow-up post.  

If you’re a registered salesperson and are following the Humber program updates, you’ve realized this is a very strategic time to get your Broker licence. Here’s what you need to know:

  • It is still unknown when the new Humber Broker Program will be available. According to our sources, a qualifying exam will be required before enrolling in that program. This may be unsettling to some, as it is not required in the current OREA Broker Program!
  • Now is the time to make a decision. The last day to register for the existing OREA Broker Program is April 30, 2019 the end of May 2020. You must accept the enrollment contract by that date, but you don’t have to pay the course fee(s) until you decide to register for the course(s). You have until November 28, 2020 to complete the program.
  • A salesperson (who has completed the Salesperson Registration Program) can become a broker by successfully completing one additional elective and the Real Estate Broker Course.
  • Once the education requirements are complete, you will have one year to register as a broker with RECO. At point of Broker registration, you must have a minimum of 2 years experience as a salesperson.
    Special Note: You can take the Broker courses BEFORE having 2 years experience as a salesperson, but you just can’t register for Broker status until you have achieved that experience level.

Passit currently offers study guides for the Principles of Appraisal and Principles of Property Management elective courses. We are working on Passit for The Real Estate Broker Course to ensure you have a trusted and reliable sidekick for your final OREA exam! We have tentatively set a summer 2019 release date. You can sign up to receive an email as soon as more info is available. Visit orea.com for Broker Program details.

    Hi I am currently giving my RE exams. Anticipating a finish date of May 15th, 2019. Can i enroll in the brocker program before finishing my RE Registration?

      Hello! You will need to be registered as a real estate salesperson before you can enroll in the Broker Program. Once registered as a salesperson you’ll need two years of experience to apply for Broker Registration with RECO but you can take your courses in that timeframe. We recommend contacting OREA to verify your eligibility and the necessary timeframes for broker registration so you can be strategic about your plans once registered as a salesperson.

    I am ANXIOUSLY awaiting this course study guide! I’ve used Passit for all but one of my previous courses (You guys don’t have a Principles of Mortgage Financing course, or I’d be batting 1.000), and I’ve found the study guides to be invaluable! I have registered for the Broker Education Training. I will use Passit for the elective, and I won’t register for the Broker Course until you have released the Passit study guide for it! Looking forward to summer 2019! No delays, please!

      Hi Mayssoun, we’re glad you’ve found Passit awesome for your previous courses! Unfortunately the Broker Passit Guide isn’t available yet. We wish you all the best on your exam! Stay calm and focused, remember to read the questions slowly and carefully. Even when you think you instantly know the answer, take the time to read all the answer options and eliminate all the incorrect options. Good luck!

Would like to know if it’s imminent and I will bump my exam date…I had Passit for all but the Mortgage Financing and had to buy a lesser program for that. Really want the Broker Passit…

  9. I am excited to hear that Passit is releasing the Real Estate Broker Course. I used Passit for all my exams. What a big help! Hope I didn’t miss out on any new updates regarding its launch. By the looks of it, it has not yet launched. My exam is scheduled late September, so I am excited for the launch of this program guide very soon!
