TRINITY, Fla. (June 13, 2016) – Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Properties Group has announced implementation of a new career program designed especially for veterans, military personnel, and their spouses. Entitled “Veterans to Realtors”, the program provides funding to active duty military personnel who are transitioning to civilian careers, veterans, and their spouses to acquire training and real estate licenses for careers as professional real estate sales executives.
“The men and women of our military have done so much for us, and now it’s our turn to do something for them,” said Dewey Mitchell, Broker/Owner, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Properties Group. “Our comprehensive program subsidizes the start-up costs and provides a very clear pathway to a successful career in real estate.”
Under the Veterans to Realtors program, participants receive the training necessary to obtain a real estate license, along with all licensing fees and start-up costs provided free or reimbursed by BHHS Florida Properties Group. Services included in the program are valued at nearly $5,000 and include marketing & technology fees, legal assistance program, local board fees, business cards, signs, and company-provided training classes. Additionally, the company has created a customized Roadmap to Success that includes ongoing training, coaching, and business planning to keep sales executives at the top of their game. This comprehensive approach significantly improves the odds of creating a successful real estate business.
“Our company was founded on teamwork, integrity, excellence, and commitment—all qualities that our military veterans also follow,” stated Allen Crumbley, Broker/Owner, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Properties Group. “We also know these fine individuals have the work ethic and discipline that are characteristic of all successful business people and it is our desire to help them transition to and succeed in a civilian career.”
