Scholarship Details

How are we able to offer a scholarship?

We get this question a lot.  Here at AgentAdvice, transparency is important to us, so we’re happy to share with you how we can afford to reimburse students.  We’re recruiters that work with the best and fastest growing brokerages in the country, and when we help place agents with brokerages, they will often pay us a placement fee.  So we’re betting on you being a great agent prospect, and if we can make obtaining your real estate license more affordable, then hopefully you’ll return the favor and come back to us every time you’re ready for a new brokerage.  It’s that simple, and we’re happy to invest in you.

How does the reimbursement work?

Email us ( once you receive confirmation from the state that you’ve passed the state exam, and one of our recruiters will reach out to you to get to know you and determine which of our brokerage partners would best fit your career goals.  We’ll schedule the interview at a time that works for you.  All you have to do is attend the interview, and our support team will reimburse your credit card for the amount that you’ve paid us within 2 business days. We’re pretty good at matching agents to brokerages, but we will reimburse you even if you choose to work for a different brokerage.  No other strings attached.

Tip:  If you’ve already started a different course at your own expense, or prefer to pick your own school at your own expense, we’d still love to help you.  Just reach back out when you’re licensed, and we can connect you with our hiring team, however, we’re unable to reimburse your course costs at this time unless you purchase the course directly from us. is not the provider of the course, and all state certifications, ongoing support questions, etc. will be provided by and fulfilled directly through the school.

We are unable to offer this scholarship reimbursement to everyone – it is only available for people who have received an email notice from us stating that they are eligible.  If you’d like eligibility information, please send your resume to

About the Opportunity

We partner with brokerages like Keller Williams, RE/Max, and EXP Realty who are looking to add new agents to their brokerages.  We are looking for mainly full-time agents, though some of our brokerages are also hiring for part-time agents.  As an agent, you’ll set your own hours and ultimately drive your own success.  If you have strong people skills, a positive attitude, and a desire to succeed, real estate may be a great fit for you.

Once you’ve completed your course, please contact your recruiter for partner options in your area.

Real estate agents are independent contractors, which means your income potential is unlimited. Unlike other “jobs” where you just get the same paycheck each week, you are your own boss of your own business.

Generally, full-time real estate agents in our program make $40,000 – $60,000 in their first 1-2 years, while our experienced and top real estate agents can make $200,000+.

How to Get a Texas Real Estate License

Before you can earn a Texas real estate license, you will have to meet the official requirements.  You have to be 18 years or older, a Texas resident, a Permanent Resident, or a US citizen, and you have to meet the Texas Real Estate Commission’s integrity, trustworthiness and honesty standards.

To become a Texas real estate agent, you will have to undertake a Texas Real Estate Commission (TREC) background check.  All of these are prerequisites with education to become a real estate agent in Texas.

Additionally, you have to have to meet these additional requirements

  • Complete 180 hours of pre-licensing education.  Register for the required class and complete the mandatory 180 hours.
    Secure a sponsoring broker.  Before you can practice in the state, you have to be sponsored by a real estate broker with a Texas license.
  • Submit fees and forms to TREC. Once your 180 mandatory hours of licensing education have been completed, you can submit all necessary documents to TREC.  You have the opportunity to select an inactive or active initial license.  If you want to practice real estate, you’ll have to apply for the active license.
  • Submit fingerprints.  Schedule the fingerprinting and license examination.  Once you get a letter of approval from the Texas Real Estate Commission, which directs you to the CIB or Candidate Information Brochure, you will be able to schedule an exam.  You will also be able to submit for review your fingerprints.  You typically have a year from the application date to pass the licensing exam.
  • Prepare for the state licensing exam.  You must pay attention and study for the licensing test as this will be the final barrier to you becoming a real estate agent in Texas.  Many students take a separate “test prep” course shortly before taking the state exam.
  • Take the State Exam. Once you have passed this exam and the necessary documentation and fingerprints are on record, you will be able to receive your Inactive or Active Salesperson License from the Texas Real Estate Commission by email.

I really liked the CE shop! It was online, which was very convenient, and it was very intuitive! It is very informative & entertaining. Technical support is also helpful. I did run into a few questions and technical issues, but they would respond right away & get those issues taken care of. The pricing is great. Because of this class, I was able to pass my exams on the first try.

The website was easy to access, and the program was very affordable. I felt that it was good overall, super helpful, easy to use, and passed my exams the first time. I am always recommending and sharing my experiences with the CE Shop. It was that good.

It’s very flexible. You can be on it as much as you want, as long as you want, and whenever you want, which is great. If you do decide to go with CE Shop or other online schools, I’d suggest you work on the courses at a specific time and date. That way, you finish quickly before the courses expire. In other words, try to get it done a fast as possible. I did think the curriculum was good, but I think more video interaction would be better for future agents. It’s the most affordable online program, and I highly recommend it

When I first started taking the courses, it was confusing as far as getting the hang of the system. It took me a while to understand, & I did have difficulty when it came to the state exam. I had to purchase an additional course through CE Shop to retake it & passed the second time. I think it just really depends on how well a person understands the system they use.

CE Shop was easy to do and convenient. It does have a lot of information, so you’ll need to take your time, focus, and do what you need to do. Technical support was great, there was one time that I had a problem, and when I reached out, they fixed the issues within an hour. They were great, and pricing was very affordable. I have been recommending it to other potential real estate agents.
