How to Become a BC REALTOR®

How to Become BC REALTOR®

The Real Estate Council of British Columbia is the regulatory body responsible for licensing real estate representatives, brokers and brokerages in BC.

For information on how to obtain your real estate licence, please visit the Council's website at: www.recbc.ca/licensing/trading.htm.

What is the value of becoming a REALTOR®?

Not all real estate trading services licensees in BC are REALTORS®. To be classified as a REALTOR®, an individual must be a member of a real estate board and therefore a member of their provincial association (BCREA in BC) and the Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA). REALTORS® also adhere to a strict Code of Ethics.

Benefits of being a REALTOR® include:

  • Access to the Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®)
  • Professional standards and business practices
  • Access to standard forms
  • Educational standards and opportunities
  • Access to statistics, newsletters and other industry communications
  • Leading-edge marketing and technology tools
  • Arbitration services
  • Networking opportunities
