Illinois Real Estate License Requirements
To qualify for a license you must:
"I joined the Dickerson & Nieman family in 2005. I knew several agents, so making the decision wasn't difficult. One of the many reasons for choosing this company was the fact that the training and learning didn't stop when I passed the Realtor exams. D&N gives its agents support through a very experienced management team. They provide a training/mentorship program that not only helps you transition into the industry but provides ample opportunity to grow your new business.
From the first day, I felt like I was part of a large family. The President of the company makes the rounds in the office. He asks questions and provides industry wisdom. His open door policy and willingness to help is the reason this company is Number 1!
"I am so happy to be at Dickerson & Nieman Realtors for many reasons. First, as far as my business, I always have a confidence when dealing with a customer that we have the most to offer them as our client. Next, regarding the inner workings of the company itself...I am very glad to be with a company whose agents value each other; staff who always help us (even in a pinch) with grace and a smile; managers who offer their expertise and guidance with positivity; and last but not least...ownership who is always supportive, engaged, and something that many times gets overlooked today...genuine. I am proud to be able to say I work for Dickerson & Nieman Realtors."
~Christi Steines, Broker
"I have been a licensed Realtor for over 30 years and have worked for four different companies during that time. I have found my experience at Dickerson & Nieman to be the most rewarding both career wise and financially. The support the agents receive from top down is great. The ownership is always willing to go the extra mile to help the agents succeed. The company offers constant training to better prepare their agents to perform their duties in a professional and knowledgeable manner. The atmosphere I have experienced is one of a caring family of agents that are always willing to lend a hand. I plan to finish my career with Dickerson & Nieman and enjoy every day. I would highly recommend this company to any agent who is looking for the best real estate firm of all."

|So, you want to be a real estate agent? Successful agents have certain traits in common.....skills that make them better at what they do. Some can be taught...some come naturally. How do YOU stack up?|
A lot of these skills can be taught to a new licensee - the math required, researching, technology and interviewing and negotiating skills and techniques. What cannot be taught are the ethics and morals involved. Real estate agents are held to a higher degree of honesty in the handling of their business.....do it right, or don't do it. We swear to hold up the high standards of the Realtors Code of Ethics in dealing with the public and each other.
Real Estate is a People Business, involving one of the biggest, the most emotional and the most expensive decisions buyers and sellers will make. Liking people, wanting to help people, having patience and energy are good stepping stones for a successful real estate career.
Real Estate agents need to be available when their clients need them....at night, on weekends and/or holidays. The mind set here is: Entrepreneur, not employee or sales person. Learn the product (know the market). Take time to become familiar with concerns potential buyers might have: crime statistics, school information, health care, neighborhood amenities.
Real Estate offices are different. Some are franchises, some are multi-offices, and they go from 1 agent to hundreds. The best advice for choosing an office? Go where you can get the best training. Commission splits and advertising should not be WHAT you make your decision on. If you have the right training, everything else should fall into place for you. Interview agents at Open Houses and talk to the Broker for the office. But make your decision on WHERE YOU GET THE TRAINING!!!
