New To Real Estate? You’ve Come At A Great Time.

Time For A Change

If you are looking at a real estate career for the first time, the timing could not be better. The market, after experiencing challenges for the last few years, is rebounding very well in the Triangle. (click here to view Market Trends in your zip code). We are seeing historically low interest rates as well as an increase in the number of homes for sale after several years of low supply.

These factors have combined to stabilize the market and to level the playing field between buyer and seller. We are finding that our new associates are having success in capturing business and are excited about the opportunities that a real estate career offers to them.

In order to obtain a real estate license in North Carolina you must first take a 75 hour broker prelicensing class. Successful completion of that class will allow you to take the North Carolina Real Estate exam. Once you have passed the state exam, North Carolina will issue to you a provisional Brokers License which will allow you to list and sell real estate anywhere in the state.

The provisional status is removed once you have taken 3 additional broker postlicensing courses. These courses have to be completed within 3 years of the date that you are licensed in North Carolina.

The Fonville Morisey Real Estate School offers all of the courses that you will need to obtain a real estate license. We have four convenient locations serving the Triangle: Raleigh (Corporate) School, Cary (Preston) School, Clayton (Triangle East) School, and our Durham (Southpoint) School.

At this time all Prelicensing, Postlicensing, and Continuing Education Courses will be taught using a live conferencing application called ZOOM ( The NC Real Estate Commission has adopted TEMPORARY RULING that no final Exams will be given in PRE and POST Classes at this time. Live-Virtual Classroom Attendance will be monitored. Click here to view our Live-Virtual Classroom Requirements.
