Koenig & Strey Launches Veterans To Realtors® Program

1347642840September, 2012 - Chicagoland Real Estate Brokerage Koenig & Strey Real Living has launched the Koenig & Strey Veterans to Realtors® Program, which will provide financial assistance, training and managerial support in order to help interested and qualified veterans become successful real estate professionals. To date, this is the first program of its kind in the Chicagoland market.

The Koenig & Strey Veterans to Realtors® Program will assist veterans trying to reenter the workforce by covering the cost of real estate school, State of Illinois licensing fees, MLS fees, National Association of Realtors dues, insurance, Continuing Education and other costs of getting established in the business. This can approach $4,000 for an average real estate agent. The program will also provide training support through our renowned in-house Agent Development program, and coaching from an experienced manager and veteran to help guide new Realtors to success.

“Because Veterans are hard-working, highly disciplined and accustomed to overcoming obstacles, we believe a career in real estate will be a great fit. In fact, we already have many wonderful Realtors who are also veterans.” said Nancy Nagy, President and CEO of Koenig & Strey. “But most of all, we believe it’s the right thing to do. Our men and women in service have given a great deal for our country, and it’s up to all of us to provide opportunities where they can be successful when they return.”

Koenig & Strey has collaborated on this program with various organizations which support the mission of helping our troops integrate back into the workforce. Interested Veterans should contact Diane Glass, Vice President of Sales Development, at 847.853.6604 or email veterans@koenigstrey.com.
