I have my license in MD. To make a long story short, I got my license in MD in July. The course was difficult (only 2 out of 30 passed the course) and the exam was much easier. Once you obtain your license you must affiliate with a broker (you will hold a license as an agent) in order to use your license.
You can set up MLS on your own computer and access listings from home. On all offers you make you must disclose that you are an agent. There are drawbacks to going that route. Number one it is time consuming and expensive. Number two you must make an agreement with a broker about how much time you are willing to committ to working.
I am now in the process of obtaining my license in NY. It’s a pain, but we are moving from MD to NY and now we have to set up shop.
