Aimed at helping agents better serve veteran and active-duty buyers, the Military Residential Specialist (MilRES) program has certified roughly 2,500 agents since 2010. A significant percentage of those agents operate in Florida and California.
- Certification is achieved via a one-day class and one-time $225 fee.
- MilRES notifies local military bases when an agent obtains certification and also runs ads in military publications.
- Most agents don't know what is required of veterans.
