They can also assist you by recommending a nearby school with an excellent pass rate and evaluating whether you qualify for a GARDNER Scholarship, which will cover a significant portion of your upfront mandatory pre-licensing costs, post-licensing Fast Start Training, and other various start-up costs. We have broken down the necessary steps to successfully attain your Mississippi Real Estate Salesperson’s license below.

To get started, you must meet the Mississippi Real Estate Commission (MREC) Salesperson’s base requirements, which are as follows:

  • Be at least 18 years old
  • Be a state resident

If you meet the above MREC base requirements, you are ready to choose a Mississippi State Certified Real Estate Pre-Licensing School. You essentially have two learning options:

  • Attend a Live Classroom Session - set schedule/time commitment
  • Take an Online Class - flexible schedule/time commitment

Once you complete the 60 hours of pre-licensing education, you will submit your license application to the the State of Mississippi. Once your application is on file, you can then contact PSI Examination Services to schedule your test.

An optional step at this time is to attend an Exam Prep Course through a Pre-Licensing School or attend GARDNER’s Exam Cram.

You are now ready to take the Real Estate Salesperson exam, which consists of the following two sections:

  • Mississippi State Exam
  • National Exam

Each of these two sections is graded separately. You need to pass both with a score of 70% or better and submit the Pass Report to the MREC in order to attain your license.

Once you pass both sections of the exam, you are ready to be sponsored by a licensed Real Estate Broker such as GARDNER, REALTORS. You will need to provide proof of your errors and omissions insurance to the MREC before your license will be issued to your sponsoring Broker.

*If you have real estate credits from your College/University coursework, you can send a written request, along with an original transcript, to the Mississippi Real Estate Commission for review toward the Salesperson pre-licensing education requirements.
