Why Earn Your MRP

Specialized Real Estate Training to Help Military Families

When military service members relocate, there are a number of procedures that must be followed in a short timeframe, and the process can be further complicated by factors such as deployment. Military families need a trusted advisor who understands the nuances of the military home search process and can help them maximize their military benefits.

Understand the processes and procedures involved in a military relocation and how these impact service members’ relocation and housing choices and provide information to help members through a rent, or buy, sell or rent decision-making process.


Use demographics of the military market to formulate business strategies and determine service offerings for buyers and sellers.


Apply knowledge of the military relocation process to guide service members through the real estate transaction and understand the unique emotions and concerns involved when a military family relocates.
