ST. LOUIS, MO (July 5, 2017) — Colibri Group, a provider of learning solutions to licensed professionals with six leading brands, announced today the launch of a revamped website and new brand identity for McKissock, LLC, a top provider of online education for licensed real estate property appraisers, agents, brokers, home inspectors, and other professions.

The improved shopping experience on McKissock.com enables busy licensed professionals to quickly find the education they need and the professional development they want in order to meet state requirements, grow their skills and advance their business. The site was designed to be clean and simple with mobility in mind. A streamlined navigation and modern look and feel allow site visitors to easily find convenient pre-licensing and continuing education (CE) packages, practical courses covering relevant topics and an all-inclusive membership option to keep professionals on a successful career trajectory.

The site launch also comes with an entirely new brand identity, which reflects the innovative culture and commitment to quality that McKissock customers have come to expect over the past 26 years. The rebrand includes a modern design and the introduction of a distinctive hummingbird logo. The brandmark is a fitting symbol for the qualities of successful business professionals — smart, adaptable and innovative.

"The launch of our improved online shopping experience re-enforces our ongoing commitment to provide the most innovative and high quality learning solutions our customers need to advance their careers,” said Mike Duran, CEO of Colibri Group. ”Our industry has experienced a lot of change over the past 26 years, and we are proud that our outward appearance now reflects the innovation happening inside.”

McKissock was started in 1991 after launching the first onsite course to property appraisers in Warren, Pennsylvania. The company has grown significantly through recent acquisitions, including Real Estate Express, and now educates more than 500,000 professionals every year across the country. Real Estate Express is the pioneer of online real estate education and specializes in pre-licensing for real estate agents and brokers.
