Check with the Division of Finance in your state. Ask them if a license is required to buy or broker notes on the secondary market.

You can broker part time in the beginning, its harder to do unless you have a night time job where you can answer the phone during the day.

Local State Requirements for Brokers??? - Posted by DanM(OR)

Dear John,

Could you please direct me to the place where I can find out the requirements of being a broker in my state? (Oregon)

I have been reading your posts and am entertaining the idea of brokering notes in order to earn while I earn.

Also, is it possible to broker notes, at least in the beginnig, part time? I have a full time job now.

Thanks for your help!

Dan

Series 6 securities license - Posted by John Behle

Check with the state. I’ve been told that they want you to have a series 6 securities license that is easy to get. I know they’ve passed a couple new laws the last few years, so I’d start with a call to the Real Estate Division.

When I started, it was part time. About 15-20 hours per week netted me an average of one deal per week and an average profit of $1300 per deal.
