PAST EVENT: VAREP Veterans Loan Programs Education Class

Last month, we offered a course for realtors interested in learning more about loan programs for veterans. The Military & Veteran Housing Certification (MVHC) course was worth 8 hours of continuing education credits and was designed to help attendees serve the housing needs of members of the military and veterans.

According to the Veterans Association of Real Estate Professionals (VAREP), 95% of veterans said they did not receive housing information while in service or post-separation. Because homelessness greatly affects the veteran community and because we are proud supporters of our military and veteran community in Las Vegas, we wanted to offer this course to all who were interested. If you couldn’t make it to our event, you can still take the course. All you have to do is register on VAREP’s website.
