Edina Realty launches vets program [UPDATED]

Published 9:27am Monday, November 12, 2012 Updated 11:28am Monday, November 12, 2012


Edina Realty is launching a “Veterans to realtors” program to help veterans launch a career in real estate. This new program will offer special incentives – $1,500 in training, technology tools and marketing support – to help veterans get their real estate career off the ground.

The Edina Realty Veterans to realtors program is aimed at veterans who are trying to re-enter the workforce. Veterans can use their GI funding to drastically reduce real estate licensing coursework and exam fees, but there are several other start-up costs. Aspiring REALTORS must also pay for new agent training, technology tools, professional photos, business cards, open house signs, and marketing mailings. Edina Realty will now cover those fees – up to $1,500 – for veterans of any age or branch of service.
