Whether you're switching careers or you're going after your dream job, becoming a real estate agent in Indiana is a pretty straight forward process.

As long as you are at least 18 years of age and have a high school diploma or equivalent, you're ready to start. We've laid out the 5 simple steps to become a real estate agent in Indiana below. Good luck!


Complete & Pass a State-Approved 90-Hour Pre-Licensing Course

The IAR-owned Real Estate Certification Program (RECP), is an Indiana-approved education provider. We recommend RECP because they offer the Broker course in-person as well as online. That way you can take it on your own schedule if you'd like! Click here for more information.


Pass the Licensing Final Exam

After completing the course, meeting the minimum time requirement of 90 hours, and passing the practice exam, it's time for the final exam. You need a score of at least 75% to pass. Register for the exam here.



Choose a Broker

To be a licensed real estate agent, you have to be affiliated with an active Indiana sponsoring broker. This is an important step as this person will serve as your guide when you being your real estate career. Take some time doing some research. You'll want to find someone you trust and would enjoy working with, as well as someone who provides you with opportunity to grow, benefits, and support.
