Pass Rate for NYS Real Estate Salesperson Test Announced

Does it shock you to learn that from January through October 2020, of the 13,527 examinees, only 59% passed the Real Estate Salesperson exam?

Brokers did a little better - of the 1,098, 66% passed.

Isn't that low? 

How do we get brokers to pass at a higher rate?

Would it help if the state released past exams? That makes sense, doesn't it? How can you study otherwise?

LIBOR / NYSAR - We just don't get it

On November 21 - we posted the blog Dear LIBOR - Lieb School has a question about your Fair Housing Courses where we advised that the statute requires that real estate licensees only be taught with "attorneys presenting legal subjects".

Now, Newsday is reporting a quote from NYSAR's CEO - "We are requiring all of our instructors that want to teach fair housing to go through a training course that will be run by an independent fair housing group before they can teach for us again,” MacKenzie said.


You can't have them go through a training to become attorneys - they have to pass the Bar Exam.

Can't you all just follow the law? - where the law is followed

Dear LIBOR - Lieb School has a question about your Fair Housing Courses

Did you know that the statute, Real Property Law §441(3)(c), requires that fair housing courses be taught by attorneys only?

The statute states: It shall be taught by a qualified faculty with attorneys presenting legal subjects.

We are just wondering how Newsday's Long Island Divided reported on real estate licensees deficiencies in teaching fair housing when they aren't legally allowed to teach these courses in the first place.

Please let us know. - where the law is followed
