  • Kansas real estate broker license: 60 hours (30-hour Kansas Real Estate Fundamentals and 30-hour Kansas Real Estate Broker Management.)

Many students use exam prep tailored for Kansas real estate exams, to ensure they have a higher chance of passing.

Kansas State Reciprocity:

Real estate commissions and boards across the country are adopting policies for a real estate agent in one state to more easily become licensed in another state.

In Kansas, if an applicant holds a current broker’s or salesperson’s license in another state, the applicant does not have to complete the national portion of the exam. Applicants must submit current certification of license history from any jurisdictions that have issued a real estate license to the applicant. This must be filed no later than six months from the issue date of the certification.

If the applicant is applying for a salesperson’s license, he or she must complete the Kansas practice course and pass the Kansas portion of the exam. An active Kansas supervising broker must sign the license application.

If the applicant is applying for a broker’s license, he or she must complete the 34-hour hours (4-hour Kansas Law and 30-hour Kansas Real Estate Broker Management) and pass the Kansas portion of the exam.
