Yes, you will need a license. In most states you will need to attend a class before sitting for the exam. Most people align themselves with a local or national real estate firm that will sponsor them when taking the test. You would then be able to work at the firm to gain experience.

In most states a person does need to be a licensed realtor to sell real estate, or they can be fined by the state that they have sold the property.

If you are an attorney in good standing for the state you sell real estate in, then it is not necessary to obtain & maintain a real estate sales license. Otherwise you generally have to keep a RE sales license current for the state you practice in to sell RE.
