A Note From Ken:
Some folks get their prints and apply with the state before enrolling in the class, however many just take the class to become more familiar with the real estate community before committing.
Its not uncommon for folks to just “show up” at the beginning of class, with no notice that they will be there. Its helpful if you call first, so there will be books, etc. there for you — However, Its no big deal, just show up!
Real estate is fun, you are your own boss, you can make money and change your life for the better.
Looking forward to seeing you at our next class!!
