We Know You Have A Choice...
So, thank you for taking the time to visit our website. We hope to make the decision of which real estate school you will attend easy!
First, we are a Kentucky Real Estate School! Why does that make a difference? Because we attend most Kentucky Real Estate Commission meetings and definitely keep current of the changes that happen here! That means our materials are current!
Second, a class is only as good as the instructor and Joyce Bea Sterling is one of the best instructors in the country! She has earned the coveted DREI or Distinguished Real Estate Educators designation. (You can find her name here.) Also, do a Google search on Joyce Bea Sterling. Or, check out her resume.
Third, real estate education is our business.
I know it sounds riduclous to say that, but we are
real estate educators.
Other school owners actually say, "We are in the marketing business. We just happen to be marketing real estate classes."
That's totally different than saying, "We are in the real estate education business and real estate is our passion."
Please read the entire page. Registration is at the bottom of the page.
"I really enjoyed the class. Joyce mixed in real life examples to go along with the material covered which made the concepts much easier to understand. Also, her preparation strategies along with the review materials she provided really helped me prepare for the test. She was very knowledgeable on the subject matter and it is clear that she has a real passion for real estate."
"One of the most pleasant people I have met. Joyce Bea Sterling is a true professional and an expert in her craft. I definitely will recommend others looking to start in real estate to take this course."
"This was an exception class!
The material was presented well, the instructor was
extremely organized, knowledgeable, encouraging and
patient. Every minute of the course was professional and
efficiently geared toward learning about Real Estate and
Real Estate Law. I have earned well over 200 college credit
hours and this course stands out as one of the very best I
can remember in either undergraduate school of graduate
school. I highly recommend this class to anyone wishing to
enter the practice of real estate."

What Is Your Pass Rate?
That's a valid question and we won't mislead you. The answer is, "Our pass rate is high, if you study!"
In September 2017,
one of our students made 80/80 on the
national section. That is rare,
but she did it!
She only missed two questions on the state law section! Yes, that is a WOW!
have the focus necessary to pass the first time. We're here to help if you don't.
Are there other requirements?
The Kentucky Real Estate Commission requires that you
-- be at least 18 years of age
-- have a high school education, or equivalent
-- complete KREC approved Real Estate classes (The 96 hours that we offer.)
-- pass the state exam with a score of 75 percent or higher
-- submit a FBI background check
-- have a sponsoring broker.
Having a criminal record does not automatically disqualify
someone from getting a real estate license, but there will be
other steps to take to secure your Kentucky Real Estate license.
If you have a criminal record, please read the FAQs found on the KREC website before you enroll.
A copy of the high school diploma, college diploma, or GED is
sent to the KREC when you pass your real estate exam.
When you pass your real estate exam the law gives you 60 days to find a sponsoring broker or put your license in escrow.
What are the technology requirements?
You must have a high speed internet connection and a webcam.
Our learning management system for the From the Ground Up course was designed by a real estate school and it is very easy to navigate and use! You may retake the tests as many times as you wish and you have access until you pass.
The From the Ground Up meets the requirements for 60 clock hours of classes and can be taken 24/7. When you enroll you will have immediate access and can get started immediately. Click here to a link to the first five chapters of the book.
There 32 hours of webcam classes, which are at a set time with a live instructor.
A webcam class is almost like walking into the classroom, except you don't have to drive!
(Did I mention that people LOVE the webcam classes!)
Each webcam class is "self contained" and covers a specific topic, so the webcam classes do NOT have to be taken in numerical order. The schedule is very flexible because you can login and attend anytime one is offered. They are three hour classes with a break every 50 minutes.
Morning Webcam Classes - 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. - Eastern Time
Afternoon Webcam Classes - 12:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. - Eastern Time
Evening Webcam Classes - 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. - Eastern Time
The final hour of the webcam class is online where you review the class and take the test over the class.
The class test is taken after you finish your 92 hours of classes and you have STUDIED!

I passed my test Friday. I wanted to thank you for sticking with me through my heart attack, my stroke and my aneurysm. I know all of those things sound ridiculously made up, but they all happened during 2017. You were kind enough to allow me extra time to prepare.
Now that I am healthy, I intend to work hard to be a successful REALTOR(R). I will never forget you or your professional teaching methods; and I will always remember your kindness and grace. I will pass that on to someone else whenever I have the opportunity.
You are the best teacher I have ever had and that includes college and grad work. I pray Gods' blessings and peace be on you.
You have six months from the date of enrollment to complete
the 96 hours of classes.
This may be extended for free for another six months to complete the course. One additional 6 month extension will be $100.
Our tuition, books and review materials are $299 or
The exam fee is $100.
The KREC license fee and Errors and Omissions Insurance will be around $200. (The E&O insurance is prorated, but this is a good estimate.)
If you place your license with a brokerage that is a REALTOR(R) then you will have Board fees and MLS fees.
Please discuss those fees with your principal broker.
