The objective in offering the Certified Military Residential Specialist Program is to provide a platform whereby Real Estate Professionals can be trained and equipped to handle with excellence the home purchase needs of active duty and former military clients.
Why would a real estate professional consider training to provide veterans with a more professional and positive real estate experience? One reason is this is a way to honor the men and women of the United States military and their families, for their service to our nation, and to fulfill the obligation we have to each and every one of these heroes for the freedoms we enjoy.
Another reason is that the men and women of the military are often a “targeted population” with some businesses cheating, scamming, and overbilling. Many are young, financially inexperienced, and transient, unaware of dishonest businesses. Some of the challenges faced today by active duty military are:
- Never has so long a conflict been fought by such a small percentage of Americans.
- Repeated deployments
- Higher rate of suicide
- Higher rate of divorce
- Higher rate of unemployment
- Higher rate of homelessness
- Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
- Traumatic Brain Injury
- The invisible wounds of war
This is an opportunity to become a “watchdog” for the warrior by pursuing excellence in serving the home purchase needs of military clients.
