MilRES® was founded in 2010 by nationally known speaker Buddy West. After two years of researching the subject, traveling to military installations and interviewing military officers and enlisted service members, veterans, their families, and Congressman and heads of the Veteran’s administration, the MilRES® team was ready with an outline and plan to develop the class. This class was not written by a “class writer or developer,” but from content from the military for Realtors® to serve the military. The one day class is just the beginning. It will give you a solid foundation to create systems, generate leads, and provide superior service.
The Class will continue to expand adding new information, videos, articles and interviews from agents to political figures to military service members and officers. By taking the class, you will be part of a team of thousands in all 50 states dedicated to our military clients. In 2021 ,we MilRES agents in 48 states.
