No, although many many years ago my mother and my ex had a $100 bet they could pass the real estate exam without taking a course.  They both passed.  Laws changed a few years later requiring the course.

My dad was a real estate broker for many years. Then he got his teaching credential became a teacher and then a principal. I must say after graduating from college, I became a teacher... I hated it and got into sales. Now I am in the real estate industry as a reverse mortgage loan originator.

No, I don't. Growing up behind the "Iron Curtain", I didn't even know anyone who owned a home.

However, I am raising 2 REALTOR Princesses and have high hopes that one or both of them will follow in my footsteps (if not, that would be perfectly fine, too... I'll wait for the grandkids).

I am affiliated with a small, family brokerage, now in its 3rd generation. LOVE it.

My dad is a 50 year Realtor and has seen it all. He did not want me to get into it full time saying it's a very tough business and only a few do well.

He's changed his tune quite a bit.
