I’m proud to say that becoming a Certified Military Residential Specialist is a way that I can honor the men & women of the US Military and their families.
Recently I was given the opportunity to become Certified as a Military Relocation Specialist! Since I received my real estate license about a year ago I’ve been serving active duty soldiers as well as US Military Veterans & their families. I’ve become extremely familiar with the lifestyle as a former army wife myself & through gaining experience helping the Military Community.
The class was packed with Lenders and others who work in our industry, and was incredibly informational 😉
What I took away from this course I will always remember & I am forever grateful to have been given an opportunity to learn more about serving our US Military Men, Women & their families.
I already held an incredible amount of respect for those who served or have served in the US Military however this program reaffirmed the reason why I love serving the military community. Striving to provide the best possible home buying experience & taking care our heroes & their families definitely make being a Realtor in the Fort Campbell Area the best job EVER 🙂
Here is a little overview of some of things we went over during our class, the information was gathered from CertifiedMilitaryResidentialSpecialist.com :
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.”
