Hey, Gerald!

Becoming an employing broker is very similar in all states. The exam will vary in content and context from state to state, but this might be the only difference you encounter. First, you need to know how to become a real estate agent before you become a broker. After you did your pre-licensing education and passed the final exams, you can work as a real estate agent under a broker. Going one step further requires you to take the Colorado Real Estate Broker License exam, submit fingerprints at the Colorado Bureau of Investigation for background checks, and have an E&O insurance policy in place.

What is the difference between employing broker and managing broker?

Hey, Kraig!

An employing broker is the person you come in contact with if you want to start working as a licensed real estate salesperson. It is mandatory for a real estate agent to have an employing broker listed on their application in order to receive an active license. An employing broker also has the responsibility of mentoring agents, holding the license of the agents, provide office space, collect commissions, and make payouts to agents. A managing broker is a person designated to represent the company in front of the Commission. In order to be the manager of the company, you need to have the Managing Broker Eligible on your license. Managing brokers are higher-level brokers tasked with managerial responsibility in a firm.
