Welcome to Military Veterans Association of Real Estate Professionals

Now Open for Membership – Open To Everyone

The Military Veterans Association of Real Estate Professionals is now open for initial membership.

We have great plans for this organization. This is a great time to become a member. It is Free and we will be adding content and resources soon.

Please note, this organization will accept anyone interested in helping with the cause, not just real estate agents.  Also, if you are a real estate agent, you do not need to be a veteran – the goal is for the real estate community to help veterans achieve the goal of home ownership.
