One of the most complex and significant financial events in peoples’ lives is the purchase or sale of a home or investment property. Because of this complexity and significance, people typically seek the help of real estate brokers and sales agents when buying or selling real estate.
Real estate brokers and sales agents have a thorough knowledge of the real estate market in their communities. They know which neighborhoods will best fit clients’ needs and budgets. They are familiar with local zoning and tax laws and know where to obtain financing. Agents and brokers also act as intermediaries in price negotiations between buyers and sellers.
The Real Estate Program at Cisco College provides all courses required for salesman and broker licensure and renewal by the Texas Real Estate Commission. Students may pursue a 19-semester hour certificate program and then continue study leading to hours needed to meet broker license requirements.
