That decision would be made by the Board of Realtors under the Secretary of State who decide all licensing issues with regard to Realtors. Realistically, I don't like your cances, especially with a kidnapping conviction. You should contact the Realty division under the Secreatry of State for a definitive answer.



do you have a number where i can reach them at?
