How to become a real estate broker in Quebec

Considering a career change? Professional real estate brokers currently enjoy two major advantages: a booming real estate market and fast, accessible training programs.

The right career for you

Professional real estate brokers are frequently driven by the idea of helping clients find their dream home. Beyond this ideal, would the realities of this career make sense for you?

  • Do you enjoy offering people advice?
  • Do you work well under pressure and according to strict deadlines?
  • Are you good with numbers?
  • Are you able to travel frequently for work?
  • Can you work evenings and weekends?

If you answered mostly yes, a real estate agent career could be perfect for you!

Long-term outlook

The Quebec real estate market continues to flourish, creating many job opportunities. According to a study conducted by Royal LePage,[1] one in four Canadians plans to invest in real estate in the next five years.

While the industry is constantly evolving, there will always be a need for competent, compassionate, effective real estate brokers.
