Do you need a degree to sell real estate in Ontario?

I receive questions from people who are thinking of becoming a real estate agent. Here is one below with my answer.
Hello my name is AC and I live in Prince Edward County. I was googleing and I came across your web page and I have a few questions as I am considering real estate a career. First, do you need a degree in order to legally sell in Ontario? Second, what do you think is the most legitimate way to receive your license?

If you can find the time to reply I would really appreciate it.

Thanks

AC
Hi AC,
You live in a beautiful part of the Province, just gorgeous!
You do not need any degree obtain your license, but you must have your real estate license to sell real estate in Ontario unless you are working for a builder or a corporation that buys or sells real estate.
The best place to begin is http://www.orea.com/index.cfm/ci_id/10346/la_id/1.htm and this will show you all the necessary steps on becoming a real estate license.
I wish you the best in all your endeavors!
Mark
