Georgia Real Estate Post-Licensing for Salespersons


The Georgia Postlicensing for Real Estate Salespersons Course satisfies Georgia’s official 25-hour postlicensing requirement. The course also fulfills the Real Estate Commission’s objective of giving Georgia real estate licensees a carefully developed reinforcement of key real estate brokerage principles, concepts, and practices necessary to initiate a productive, professional career in real estate.

The purpose of this course is to provide real estate salespersons in Georgia with information they need to serve clients in real estate transactions. This course compares and contrasts salespersons’ responsibilities to those of a broker or brokerage firm and to those of a client. The course focuses on the state and federal laws that regulate how salespersons should interact with buyers and sellers, what kinds of things salespersons should disclose, and what documents are necessary to complete a real estate transaction. The course also explores the process of a real estate transaction in detail, from finding potential listings and clients, to listing and selling properties, to accepting a contract, to closing. The course hones in on specific practical topics, like how to price residential property, how to identify property lines, and how to properly advertise listings. Topics relevant to real estate investment, such as property management, leasing, and property transfer are also covered. Finally, the course covers techniques that salespersons can implement to comply with the NAR Code of Ethics, manage their exposure to disciplinary action and penalties, and protect their personal safety when showing a listing or visiting clients.
