Jeanne Evans with Coldwell Banker Holtzman, Realtors in Hinesville has earned the nationally recognized military relocation professional certification.
The National Association of Realtors confers the certification to Realtors who want to help military personnel and veterans find housing that meets their needs and allow them to take full advantage of their military benefits.
The certification provides NAR’s members with resources to accommodate current and former military service members at any stage of their military career, and is an approved elective for NAR’s accredited buyers representative designation.
To earn the MRP certification, Realtors are required to be in good standing with NAR; complete a one-day MRP certification core course; complete pre-class readings to learn military background information and better understand acronyms and military culture; and complete two webinars.
“Home ownership is an important part of the fabric of America, and having a stable home environment is vital when men and women of the military are called away to serve their country. Working with a Realtor who understands specific needs and timetables related to military service will help make their transfers easier, faster and less stressful,” NAR President Gary Thomas said. “The military relocation professional certification will help Realtors hone their knowledge and skills for working with veterans and active-duty military buyers and sellers to ensure that home ownership remains affordable and accessible to them.”
Coldwell Banker Holtzman, Realtors is at 730 Gen. Stewart Way.
