The Information Network of Kansas (INK) and the Kansas Information Consortium (KIC) partnered with the Commission to create the Kansas Real Estate Alexa skill.

“The Kansas Real Estate Commission is excited to receive this award. We strive to be a leader when it comes to using new technology to communicate with licensees and consumers,” said Erik Wisner, Executive Director. “Allowing licensees to obtain information through voice-enabled digital assistants offers amazing convenience and more immediate access to information related to their real estate business.”
