We just wanted to say thanks to all of you who have referred business to us over the past few years. It seems like yesterday when we were the first ever online provider of online Kentucky approved 96 hour online real estate class credit. We’re now the largest pre-license real estate school in Kentucky and we continue to grow as we strive to help people achieve their dream of a career in real estate and help busy agents complete their continuing education when it’s convenient for them.
It’s happening everywhere as companies try to squeeze every little bit they can from consumers. Airlines are charging extra for bags, cans of soda and even window seats. If you look at your bill, cell phone companies have taken extra charges to an entirely new level. It seems fuel surcharges are now on everything, but we have some good news. Our low prices on online Kentucky approved pre-license courses are still all inclusive and include textbooks, free shipping, our cram course and our exclusive “No pass No Pay Guarantee.” Of course you could spend hundreds more for tuition, pay extra for study material and/or books and even more for gas to drive to a boring classroom, but why would you?
Well it’s like this. Kentucky has completely changed the law when it comes to granting “reciprocal licenses.” The Kentucky Real Estate Commission (KREC) has transitioned to a new system called “license recognition.”
What’s the difference? Under the old system an agent licensed in anther state could get licensed in Kentucky, but it was based on which state they were licensed in and whether Kentucky had a reciprocal license agreement with that other state. If you were licensed in Ohio, you had to take a 48 hour Kentucky law class, but if you were licensed in Tennessee you didn’t even have to take the licensing exam. This new system changes that because now everyone currently licensed in another state will be treated exactly the same. It’s actually much easier to apply for a license in Kentucky now because the applicant no longer needs a broker licensed in Kentucky, no longer needs any additional education, and residency is no longer an issue. (Reciprocal licenses were for out of state agents only)
This almost sounds too good to be true, but the Kentucky Real Estate Commission Continue reading
Todd (Renegade) Thornton has officially announced that Thornton’s Real Estate Academy is currently the only real estate school in Kentucky approved by the Department of Defense to accept the Military Spouse Career Advancement Account Tuition Assistance program. (We believe we may have actually been the first real estate school in the country to be included on the approved list)
If you have a spouse that’s currently in the military it’s possible you might qualify for up to $6,000 dollars Continue reading
