Irvine, CA (PRWEB) May 27, 2014
As employment growth in Southern California's real estate industry has become a key driver in the Golden State's economic recovery, more and more, one incredible experience many successful agents share is their military service.
"Military veterans have been leaders and a great part of our success for many years," said Rick Brotherton, Vice-President, Marketing, First Team Real Estate. "We are honored to have them working with us and want to do all we can to support their success."
First Team Real Estate is known globally as a leader in the development and training of agents. In the last year, they trained over 1,600 agents from the basics of real estate law in preparation for licensing and starting a career to peer mentoring for well established leaders. First Team in the last twelve months has embarked on major investments in training that have increased the ability of First Team agents to train 24 hours a day online, remotely participate in classroom trainings, and attend training at one of the over 20 First Team satellite offices.
"Our job is to help buyers and sellers make informed decisions about the purchase of a home which is often the most complex and personally important financial transactions in life," said Chris Pollinger, First Team Real Estate Senior Vice President, Sales. "Veterans often have life and leadership experiences that helps buyers and sellers navigate the transaction smoothly."
Senior leaders at First Team Real Estate, including Founder and Chairman Cameron Merage, regularly lead training and mentoring sessions for agents at all stages of their sales career. Adding the commitment to helping veterans who are also First Team agents is a key next step.
"Veterans have already done so much for the country. Once they become a real estate agent, their can do spirit, optimism, and confidence are real keys to mentoring other agents as well," explained Pollinger. "I look forward to continuing to expand our training programs and help veterans and every agent improve the California real estate buying and selling process."
