Goodmorning, I am Italian and in the process to move to California.

Goodmorning, I am Italian and in the process to move to California. I was planning to get a real estate broker license once there but I heard that the requirements to do so just changed by a law passed in August. I do not know if it is a federal law or just a California state law but I heard that it is not enough just to take the needed courses in order take the exam anymore, while it is necessary today to BOTH get a 4 years degree in real estate or in law AND have a two years experience as a sales agent. Is that correct? Can you give me any reference of this like a government site link where I can check and be sure? Thank you very much.
You do not need a 4 year degree to get a brokers license, but you will need to have at least 2 years of experience in the last 5 years. Also, you have classes that you need to take 8 college level courses for the license. Here are the state requirements, CA Department of Real Estate. There are no federal law agreements as the sale of real estate would be a matter left to state regulation.
