Becoming a Member of the REALTORS® Association of Edmonton

If you are considering becoming a REALTOR® and member of the REALTORS® Association of Edmonton:

  • Meet with a Broker/Manager who is a member of the Association to discuss skills and personal qualities necessary for a successful career.
  • Take the Real Estate Associates Program, offered by RECA. This is the mandatory course for those wanting to become real estate Agents.
  • Pass the Provincial Qualifying Examination for Associates.
  • Find a licensed Broker who will agree to employ you; fill out application forms.
  • Through your sponsoring Broker, apply for your Associates licence with the Real Estate Council of Alberta; pay your RECA fees, renewable September 30, each year.
  • If the Broker who employs you is a member of the Association, you must also become a member. This involves completing the Orientation Program and applying for a membership. The dues and fees total approximately $3100 for the first full year (including national/provincial dues, data access). Dues are pro-rated quarterly. Application is made through your Broker. Access to key control service is an additional cost.
  • Keep in mind, technology plays a big part in managing a successful real estate career. Factor in the expenses of a personal computer, perhaps a laptop or PDA, software programs, a cell phone, Internet connection and training when planning to become a REALTOR®.
  • Start practicing your new career, remembering to take mandatory continuing education every year to maintain your licence (For exemptions, please contact RECA Licensing Department at 1-888-425-2754).
  • Download the First Steps brochure to see how joining the REALTORS® Association of Edmonton will advance your career and create an economic advantage.
