“While licensees were initially skeptical of an online renewal process, they quickly embraced the ease of usage,” said KREC’s Director of Education & Licensing, Kristen Reese.
KREC’s website, hosted on the Kentucky.gov platform, provides real estate professionals the opportunity to renew and modify licenses, search the KREC database, and submit corrections from anywhere with internet connectivity. This allows real estate professionals to focus on their work, not waiting for mail delivery or waiting in line at KREC’s offices.
KREC worked with Frankfort-based Kentucky Interactive, LLC to build the online solutions under an existing statewide master contract for eGovernment services. With respect to the partnership between KREC and Kentucky Interactive LLC, Reese stated that “the Kentucky Interactive team is highly attentive to our needs and quick to respond.”
