For those Who Proudly Served
Finding a home can be a challenge for anyone. Serving in the U.S. Military sometimes creates additional barriers. Finding someone who understands these complex considerations is critical to finding the right home. When you return home, it is important to identify a Realtor® who understands.
Heroes Welcome Home
This pilot project from the Chicago Association of REALTORS® was available to REALTORS® a few years ago. The two-day workshop focused on working with disabled war veterans, finding specialized housing, accessing government support programs, and securing VA home loans. Speakers from medical professionals, veterans programs, government and nonprofits offered excellent insights into helping our veterans find the right housing.
Impact on this Realtor®
My father and my uncles were all decorated veterans. After attending the two-day workshop i had a new appreciation of how well they managed to transition after being in active duty in war ravaged areas of the world. My uncle flew many missions in Italy and never went back in a plane after he returned home. My dad would never eat corned beef hash because he thought of it as k-rations. My other uncle kept everything in order and never liked anything out of place. They were all lucky enough to find jobs and to find homes. My dad used a VA loan to secure his first home. They all encouraged me to buy my first home, a condominium. I feel that it would be an honor to help veterans find a place they can call home. Let me tear down any natural barriers until you have the home you deserve. Welcome back home and thanks for your service!
