- Educate Yourself. Future commercial agents must take pre-licensing courses and meet their state’s requirements. Some states may set the number of hours to complete while others look for college-level course experience. Be sure to examine your state’s requirements.
- Choose a Brokerage. Agents must find a broker before graduating who will help them get their first clients. Many of the industry’s finest brokerages compose the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices network. These brokers have a top reputation, understand the commercial marketplace and provide ongoing training to ensure their agents are the best.
- Obtain Your License. Once graduated, you must pass state and national exams. Typically, a criminal background check is required before the state issues a license.
- Build a Client List. Ask family and friends if they or anyone they know is planning to sell or buy or need commercial space in the near future. Networking is a critical part of becoming a successful commercial agent.
