The cost of becoming an Ontario real estate agent or broker and the cost of remaining an Ontario real estate agent or broker
The real estate industry in Ontario (and every where else) is a “licensed profession”. There are costs to becoming a licensed real estate agent. There are costs to maintaining your real estate license. That said, the costs are far less than the costs associated with other professions.
The licensing costs are subject to change. Effective January 1, 2017 the “Real Estate Council of Ontario” (“RECO”) has increased the “licensing fees”.
