No, although many many years ago my mother and my ex had a $100 bet they could pass the real estate exam without taking a course.  They both passed.  Laws changed a few years later requiring the course.

My dad was a real estate broker for many years. Then he got his teaching credential became a teacher and then a principal. I must say after graduating from college, I became a teacher... I hated it and got into sales. Now I am in the real estate industry as a reverse mortgage loan originator.

I think my grandmother on mother side was the only agent in the family before me. She worked mostly around Falls Church, Vienna VA area, but would sometimes go farther to Arlington, and out to Loudoun county VA

No, I don't. Growing up behind the "Iron Curtain", I didn't even know anyone who owned a home.

However, I am raising 2 REALTOR Princesses and have high hopes that one or both of them will follow in my footsteps (if not, that would be perfectly fine, too... I'll wait for the grandkids).

I am affiliated with a small, family brokerage, now in its 3rd generation. LOVE it.

My dad is a 50 year Realtor and has seen it all. He did not want me to get into it full time saying it's a very tough business and only a few do well.

He's changed his tune quite a bit.
