The Southern Nevada region is producing nearly 4,000 residential real estate transactions per month and this number has remained the regional standard for most of this year, according to the Greater Las Vegas Association of Realtors. Most industry professionals expect this number to linger well into 2014 long as interest rates remain at record lows.
In such an active real estate market, qualified, licensed real estate agents are in demand, according to local trade groups and real estate companies.
Jan O’Brien is the general manager for Nevada, Realty ONE Group. Real Trends has called O’Brien one of Nevada’s foremost experts in real estate licensee qualifications and the local marketplace.
She said real estate agents today need to bring their A game to today’s marketplace.
“Today’s real estate practice is all about work ethic, adaptability and negotiation skills,” she said. “Our agents start on the right foot and continue with a path that yields success. Many licensees are often provided with weak academic training in the preliminary stages of licensing and then left to fend for themselves once licensed. Realty ONE Group refers initial prelicensing students to Key Realty School, as licensees who start on the right path usually continue on to be successful agents. Prospective licensees need to start with Key, and then work with a successful brokerage that provides the business training, innovative tools and broker support while leveraging a real estate model that maximizes profitability.”
Nevada requires those pursuing a real estate license have initial prelicensing education called real estate principles and law.
Key Realty School has offered this original prelicensing course to thousands of real estate professionals in Nevada.
Real Estate applicants complete the prelicensing course work through online or classroom training and then pass the Nevada licensing exam before completing an application. After passing the licensing exam, the applicant selects the brokerage and company name he or she wishes to practice under and completes the licensing process.
