MilRES® was founded in 2010 by nationally known speaker Buddy West. After two years of researching the subject, traveling to military installations, interviewing military officers, enlisted service members, veterans, their families, and Congressional Representatives 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 “course 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 nearly all states dedicated to our military clients. By the end of 2023 , we will have the entire nation covered.
