Originally formed in the summer of 2011 by Buddy West as Military Residential Specialist LLC, MilRES was reorganized with a new management team to serve the military community. The new brand is Military Residential Specialist™ and the Realtor® certification is MilRES.
“It started with a needy veteran that I met on the streets of Philadelphia and I was moved to serve the veterans and Servicemembers and their families who have given so much to our country”, says Buddy West, founder and CEO of Military Certified Residential Specialist LLC. “And then we started the research project which found the benefits and regulations so complicated that it’s no wonder they are so misunderstood … and worse, many don’t even use them”.
MilRES organized 10 classes from coast to coast since its founding. MilRES is now scheduling classes and also connecting with our natural partners in the DOD, Congress, the VA and Fannie Mae.
Gee Dunsten, MilRES Vice President, brings 35 years of experience as a master instructor and successful Realtor® to a project close to his heart as a veteran.”
Frank Jornlin is their Chief Operating Officer and a Viet Nam combat veteran. “What a rewarding change of pace for me. Our business plan is a win/win for our military clients and the Realtors® who want to help these families.”
MilRES LLC is a national educational organization offering specialized real estate classes and continuing support to Realtors® interested in serving veterans, active duty and reservists.
