Become a Real Estate Broker

Employment perspectives

In Quebec, 14 268 people hold a residential real estate broker or certified real estate broker licence.


The broker’s compensation is based on his productivity and efforts. A new broker will incur several expenses even before earning his first dollar. In the beginning, income is unstable and might not match what you expected. You might have to wait a few months for your first compensation, commonly called “commission”.

Plan for this by building a start-up fund; it will be very useful at the start of your career to cover your expenses.

The average annual income of a real estate broker is higher than $50,000

Fixed costs of a real estate broker

Consider these expenses when you build your start-up fund:

  • Annual brokerage licence
  • Agency fee
  • Real Estate Board membership

“Brokers who study the market and make a comparison between all business models offered in the real estate industry in Quebec will not find a more efficient, economical and better equipped business model than the one offered by groupe sutton – québec.”
