In your article "How to find an investor friendly real estate agent" you highlighted investors should become real estate agents. I am currently working on getting my Florida license, for that very reason: so I could have access to the MLS and to save money on commissions. But what I didn't realize is once you pass the state exam, your license isn't active until you find employment, registering through the Broker you will work for. I thought I could just get my license (without working at a real estate office), become a member with access to the MLS and then buy and sell my investment properties. I didn't really plan on "working" as a real estate agent full time - my goal was to fix and flip. Is there a way around this in Florida?
