Fingerprinting tips



"Kentucky state laws stipulate that a person may not act as a real estate sales associate or broker without first obtaining a license issued by the Kentucky Real Estate Commission. To be licensed, you must pass an examination to confirm that you have attained at least a minimum level of knowledge regarding the principles, practices, statutes, and regulations relating to real estate."
