New Hampshire Real Estate Education Requirements:

  • New Hampshire real estate salesperson license: 40 hours of pre-licensing education (of these, no more than 8 hours may be distance education)

Many students take advantage of exam prep tailored for their state, to give them a higher chance of passing.

New Hampshire 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.

If an out-of-state licensee who applies for a New Hampshire salesperson license holds an active real estate license in good standing, they may apply for a New Hampshire license, taking only the New Hampshire portion of the license exam.
