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.
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.
