Becoming a commercial or residential REALTOR® means making a commitment to professionalism that goes beyond regulatory requirements, becoming a member of your local real estate board and upholding the REALTOR® Code of Ethics. Find out how to join the profession.


Successfully complete the Real Estate Council of BC’s (RECBC) Real Estate Trading Services Licensing Course offered through the University of British Columbia’s Sauder School of Business.


Begin talking to real estate brokerages, like Reign Realty, to find a brokerage that is the right fit for you to join when you are licenced. Make sure this brokerage is a member of a local real estate board. Give us a call at 604-404-4888.


Register for RECBC’s Applied Practice Course for either residential or commercial trading services. Once you begin the course submit your licensing application to RECBC. Make sure you understand all the information that is required as part of the application (including an original criminal record check and brokerage certification).


Congratulations, if your application is approved, you’re now a real estate agent. Once you have received your licence, you must complete all remaining components of the Applied Practice Course within six months.


. . .but not yet a REALTOR®. To officially become a REALTOR®, your next step is to join your local real estate board. Joining a board also makes you a member of BCREA and the Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA).


Maintain your real estate license and REALTOR® designation by completing RECBC mandatory licensing courses, like Legal Update, and 18 hours of professional development through BCREA and/or your member board every two years.
