Retired Elkin City Schools superintendent, Dr. Randy Bledsoe, is embarking on a new career path, recently earning his North Carolina Real Estate licensure from the North Carolina Real Estate Commission. Bledsoe has joined the team at Kennedy Land & Homes LLC, established by Elkin native and town commissioner, Terry Kennedy.
“I am so happy to be able to continue working with the Elkin community in this new capacity,” Bledsoe said. “Assisting people to find their first home, move to a larger home to meet their family needs, or promoting our town as a choice for lifelong residence parallels nicely with my former profession.”
He said he envisions his work “as helping people to get to his/her next level in life as I worked in the second of two of the most important aspects of one’s life — education and a home residence,” he said. “I am also happy to be working alongside Mr. Terry Kennedy, a real estate veteran, who has encouraged me to take this next step in the real estate profession.
“I look forward to serving the home and property needs of my friends, neighbors, former students and staff, Elkin resident and all citizens of our beautiful northwest area of North Carolina,” said Bledsoe.
To be eligible for a North Carolina Provisional Broker’s License, candidates must complete the 75-hour North Carolina Broker Prelicensing Course, pass the end-of-course exam, as well as make passing scores on the national and state sections of the North Carolina real estate license examination. A provisional broker may generally perform the same acts as a broker so long as the licensee is supervised by a broker who is designated broker-in-charge.
