Thinking of a career in real estate? Then you’ve come to the right place!
The fast-paced world of real estate is full of opportunities for those willing to put in the time and effort for a rewarding career. As with any job, you get what you put into a real estate career. While that may include income uncertainty, market fluctuations and at times long and unusual hours, it is often balanced with perks like flexibility, income potential and the opportunity to work with a variety of people as you help them with some of life’s most significant and exciting transactions.
If you think you’ve got what it takes – the interest, the passion, the commitment – to pursue a career in real estate, then consider the next steps:
- Look into educational requirements. To become registered to trade real estate in Saskatchewan, you must first complete education required by the Saskatchewan Real Estate Commission (the Commission) and provided by UBC Sauder School of Business.

- You will be required to supply the Commission with a criminal record checkby fingerprint comparison prior to becoming licenced to trade in real estate. We recommend completing this step during your course studies, as it can often take a few weeks to obtain results.
- Talk to brokers you may be interested in working with. Different brokerages offer different services, fees and cultures and you’ll want to find the right match for you. Every registrant must be affiliated with a brokerage before they can become licensed.
- Register with the Commission by completing their application for registration.
