Dear Sandar

Officially, the steps are taking the RES course, followed by taking the RES exam and joining an agency who will apply to CEA for your license to operate as a salesperson.

However, the right approach is to speak to Managers in agencies who are recruiting and find out as much as you can from them about the industry and also how they can help you to be successful.

Never make the mistake of joining a friend or relative. You must feel comfortable with the manager and is able to learn from him/her. There must be synergy as it's a long term partnership.

In my team, most of our partners made a mid career switch into real estates. We are family focused and we intend to grow old together. We have very independent producers and we also have team projects to support those who prefer to work as a team.

We are learning and growing together, the most important thing is, we are committed to each other's success. If you like such an environment, give me a call at 968 55070.

Hello ,

The basic criteria to be eligible is -

2. must have 4 O'level passes.

Then, you will need to register at the Council for Estate Agencies(CEA)and enrol for the new council course & exam, Real Estate Salesperson (RES) (and pass the exam). www.cea.gov.sg. Then, you may join any agency of your choice.

Alternatively, if you do not possess 4 O'level passes, you have to take and pass a test, called - WPLN (Workplace Literacy & Numeric skills) conducted by WDA (Workforce Development Agency) before you can register for the RES course, conducted by CEA.
