7 questions to help you obtain your
Real Estate License
YES! If you want (1) High income potential, (2) Flexible working hours, and (3) The ability to secure your financial future, then becoming a licensed real estate agent is an excellent career choice.
WHY? The strength of the housing market is measured long-term. The traditional motivators for people listing and selling homes such as job, marriage, and family changes, never slow down. This good news means that excellent earning opportunities are available to motivated agents.
HOW? The formula for success is easy. The agents who make the most money create a simple business plan (with the help of their real estate broker and manager) and then stick to it each day. NCI delivers the classes to help you get licensed. And, your new broker/manager will deliver the training to help you make money.
To obtain a Michigan Real Estate Salesperson’s License, a person must fulfill the following easy requirements...
Age: Be 18 years of age.
Education: Successfully complete a state-approved 40 clock hour Real Estate Fundamentals Course. NCI’s Real Estate Salesperson License Training Class is your best choice to help you pass!
License Application: After receiving a certificate from NCI, you will submit an on-line license application to the State. Your sponsoring broker (discussed later) will electronically confirm that you will be working for him or her. Upon approval, the State will give you a MIRE Number. This allows you to schedule the state real estate licensing exam with the testing company, PSI Services, LLC. Further license information is available on-line at www.michigan.gov/MIPLUS. Information pertaining to the state exam is available at www.psiexams.com.
Examination: The state exam is given via computer at five regional PSI Exam Sites in Michigan. The exam fee is currently $79. A license fee of $88 is charged by the state for a salesperson’s license. Your NCI instructor will give you a Candidate Information Bulletin in class and explain the process to you in easy-to-understand terms. The bulletin contains all of the information you need.
Residency: Michigan residency is not required to obtain your real estate license.

NCI uses Michigan Real Estate Law & Practice (MRELP) by Jack K Waller, J.D. This 2-textbook resource is the only professionally- produced real estate textbooks that are written top-to-bottom by a top Michigan expert, from an entirely Michigan perspective. NCI students who attend our real estate license preparation classes receive both textbooks. (Students who take programs from other school do not receive these industry-leading textbooks.)
MRELP are student-friendly textbooks designed to be used in the classroom and for studying at home. They define all critical terminology and concepts in an easy-to-follow format.
• The Primary Textbook contains over 460 pages of current, Michigan information. It also contains hundreds of practice questions coupled with excellent test-taking techniques. (Other textbooks may be outdated and contain information that is out-of-step with Michigan law and practice.)
• The Test Prep Outline & Glossary is a second 178-page resource that reduces the topic discussion in the Primary Textbook to short, flash card-style notes. It also contains a unique, dual-definition glossary of terms. This 2-textbook set is the perfect learning resource for passing the Michigan Real Estate Exam! And, it is only available through NCI.
• The Online version of our program includes an eBook version of the Primary Textbook (read-only) and a downloadable copy of NCI's Real Estate Exam Prep Study Tool.
NCI is the only school that delivers these extraordinary resources!
NCI helps you get going as quickly as possible! When you successfully complete the state exam with the help of NCI, you will receive your passing notification at the test site. If broker sponsorship was confirmed prior to the exam date, your license will be mailed to your broker within 1-2 business days of passing. This authorizes you to begin working as a real estate licensee.
Broker Sponsorship: Your sponsoring/employing broker is the person for whom you will work as an agent. He or she is responsible for managing and supervising your real estate-related activities. In Michigan, a real estate salesperson must be licensed under a real estate broker.
If you learned about NCI by searching online (and were not referred by a real estate broker or manager), we can provide guidance on the process of locating a great real estate company.
If a real estate broker or manager recommended that you take the license training class from NCI, he or she is absolutely the best person to consult about your new real estate career.
NCI takes the stress out of the process by preparing you for the challenge better than any other school.
Passing the exam depends upon your commitment to studying the necessary real estate concepts. Your attitude toward testing also plays a role, i.e., Does the thought of testing make you nervous? Are you concerned that you haven’t been to school in a while? Does your past performance in testing situations worry you? NCI helps you identify and remove any barriers to success!
NCI understands that you want to pass in the shortest time possible! While no school can guarantee a “pass” on the first try, NCI increases your chances with the best instruction and materials! You also may be able to re-sit the NCI course at no charge for up to 6 months from your original start date (only at select locations).
NCI focuses on high “Personal Passing Rates.” All instructors are specially trained to meet individual needs in a group setting. Students who are likely to be forgotten at other schools become NCI’s top priority. You will be shown how to boost your “Personal Pass Rate” by learning:
—What to study, When to study, and How to study!
—How to create and build good study habits!
—Proven test-taking strategies that get results!
—How to stay focused and build confidence!
Exam content: There are 115 questions on the state exam. They are based on the PSI content outline that is fully covered in your NCI textbooks. To pass, you must attain a score of 70% (80 correctly answered questions). NCI knows what it takes to help you pass.
Bottom Line: Nobody can guarantee what your results will be since it is up to you to pay attention in class and properly study. However, if you can follow simple instructions, you can be assured of the best results possible, in the shortest period of time, with the fewest possible problems, with NCI as your education partner.
