Kentucky Real Estate License

“What do I need to know about obtaining a Kentucky real estate license online?,” you ask yourself. Well we have answers to all of your questions. Read on to learn more about becoming a licensed real estate agent in KY.

The Kentucky Real Estate Commission only requires a 96 hour class to get a Kentucky real estate license. Of course if you are really motivated you can choose to devote up to 8 hours a day and possibly finish in only a couple of weeks (or in as little as 12 days). You do have to complete every activity so completion time can vary slightly, but could a better situation exist than to have a completely flexible schedule? Don’t have much time right now, but want to get started? You can take up to 6 months to complete the entire course.

You do have to pass a proctored exam and it is the only part of the class you can’t take online, but we even make that easy because you can take your proctored exam at any number of locations. Locations may change over time, but we’ve had students test in Ashland, Bowling Green, Campbellsville, Elizabethtown, Erlanger/ Northern Kentucky, Frankfort, Georgetown, Henderson, Hopkinsville, Lebanon, Louisville, Madisonville, Mount Sterling, Owensboro, Paducah, Pikeville, Shelbyville, Somerset, and Shepherdsville. If none of those locations will work for you, we can even try to find a proctor in another location. We’ve had people in other states who will be moving to Kentucky that didn’t even have to travel here for the exam because we found them a proctor in their current city.

If you have decided to take the plunge and go after your dreams, let’s discuss why you should choose hboThornton’s Real Estate Academy. There are many real estate schools in Kentucky to choose from, but nobody and we mean nobody gives you more value for your dollar. What makes us better than any other real estate school? For one not only are we the only Kentucky Pre-License education provider who currently offers the required 96 hour Pre-license course online, our founder and instructor Todd (Renegade) Thornton was a successful real estate agent and broker before focusing his attention on improving the quality and availability of real estate education. He knows what it takes not only to pass the exam, but also how to be a successful agent. Did we mention he’s also the author of two real estate books and been on numerous radio and television shows?

“I’m not that computer savvy, how difficult will this class be?” You ask. Can you read and follow directions? It’s as simple as that. You read the text and we guide you through the course. I must mention to keep you from getting bored; we have included over 40 hours of video and audio clips, electronic flashcards, matching exercises, and quizzes. Oh yea, if you get stuck on something, no need to fret, Todd (The Renegade) Thornton and the Real Estate Renegade Team are here to help. We are a call, fax, email, or instant message away. We always respond as quickly as possible. Remember the Domino’s slogan, “It’s delivered in 30 minutes less or it’s free?” We won’t give you a free pizza, but we will certainly give you our attention as quickly as we can. Our response time and level of service are unmatched in online real estate education.

Are you wondering if you have the right computer or Internet connection? A high speed connection is required to register for any of our online courses. Even a slower DSL connection (256k or lower) may cause you to experience wait times as videos and other multimedia resources load. Now, I guess if you wanted to use us as an excuse to run out and buy that top of the line computer you have been dreaming about, you can, but any modern computer with an updated web browser should work just fine. However, if you’ve been wanting to buy a new computer anyway, we will not take responsibility when your spouse/significant other gets the bill. If you have problems with your computer and our course, our computer technical support will give you their best effort to have you up and running in no time.
