To become a real estate agent in Alaska, you need to follow these steps:

  1. Meet the basic requirements: Be at least 19 years old. Have a high school diploma or its equivalent.
  2. Complete the required pre-licensing education: Enroll in and successfully complete a state-approved 40-hour pre-licensing course. Ensure the course covers topics such as real estate law, contracts, financing, appraisal, agency, and ethics.
  3. Pass the Alaska Real Estate Salesperson Exam: Apply for the Alaska Real Estate Salesperson Exam. Schedule and take the exam at a designated testing center. Passing the exam requires a minimum score of 75%.
  4. Apply for a real estate license: Once you've passed the exam, submit your application for a real estate license to the Alaska Real Estate Commission. Include a completed application form, fingerprints, background check, proof of pre-licensing education, exam results, and the required fees.
  5. Complete the required background check: Obtain fingerprint cards from the Alaska Real Estate Commission to complete the required background check. Schedule an appointment with the approved fingerprinting agency.
  6. Find a sponsoring broker: Before you can practice as a real estate agent, you must work under a licensed broker. Find a sponsoring broker who will guide and supervise you through your early career stages.
  7. Activate your real estate license: After securing a sponsoring broker, your license can be activated. Complete a license activation form and submit it to the Alaska Real Estate Commission along with all relevant fees.


After completing these steps, you will officially become a licensed real estate agent in Alaska. Remember to stay updated on local real estate laws and regulations, as well as continuing education requirements to maintain your license.
