ALISO VIEJO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Vylla Home, the nationwide real estate brokerage of The Carrington Companies, recently introduced the Military to Real Estate Career Professional Program, which provides Veterans who are transitioning from military service with support that is integral to achieving a thriving career as an agent with Vylla Home.
“Carrington’s commitment to Veterans is ongoing and unwavering,” says Bruce Rose, CEO and Founder of The Carrington Companies. “Vylla Home’s Military to Real Estate Career Professional program is another way we can honor the heroes who served our country with distinction to preserve the greater freedoms we have long held dear.” Mr. Rose notes that the Signature Programs of the Carrington Charitable Foundation provide Mobility, Stability, Purpose and Prosperity for our Veteran community. Mr. Rose adds: “This program supports Purpose and Prosperity for those transitioning out of military service.”
The Carrington Companies and the company nonprofit Carrington Charitable Foundation (CCF) have long been committed to supporting Veterans causes. From building homes for catastrophically injured Vets and their families through the Carrington House Program, to ongoing support of such Veteran-focused nonprofits as the Veterans Airlift Command and the Travis Mills Foundation, Carrington also has created the Senior Management Associate (SMA) program to introduce graduates of The Honor Foundation’s program, which focuses on career training for former U.S. Special Operations Forces (SOF) members, to work and life at Carrington and Vylla. Now in its initial stages, The Carrington Companies are working with The Honor Foundation to provide a career development curriculum designed to meet the needs of the more than 200,000 Veterans who leave military service each year. Most recently, Carrington and CCF the Gold Star Family Housing Initiative to retire the mortgages of struggling Gold Star families – the immediate family of a fallen service member who has died while serving during a time of conflict.
The transition from a military to civilian career can be challenging. Some Veterans experience anxiety, confusion and self-doubt post-military as they re-enter the civilian job market, after having spent most of their working lives in the military. Most importantly, Veterans leave behind the camaraderie and cohesion that successfully binds our military units. Vylla Home understands this, and exemplifies a culture that embraces solidarity, support and a sense of belonging that is critical – not only to our men and women in uniform, but to any successful organization.
This program provides Veterans with an opportunity to pursue their passion to become a REALTOR® at Vylla Home. In addition to financial assistance, the program provides foundational mentorship, guidance and resources elemental to starting a successful career as an agent. Vylla Home will take time to learn each Veteran’s needs on a case-by-case basis to determine what the company can do to help align their individual goals to its overall organizational mission. Designed to fit each Veteran’s needs, three tiers are offered for candidates depending on their needs: be it a side gig, part-time or full-time career in real estate.
“We are honored to offer such a program to our nation’s Veterans, enabling them to become successful real estate agents,” says Kat Cox, Senior Management Associate for Carrington. “Not only with financial assistance, but, more importantly, with the mentorship, leadership and camaraderie similar to what they experienced while serving in uniform.”
The support within Vylla Home for the Military to Real Estate Career Professional Program was already in place, as the drive to develop the initiative came from agents across the country who were committed to serving the Veteran community. Vylla Home agents’ determination and enthusiasm helped the new program quickly get up and running, which is a natural complement to the Veteran-focused culture and leadership of The Carrington Companies. The organization’s ecosystem is well-suited for military Veterans, as it is positioned to offer the needed all-encompassing foundational support, training opportunities, customized mentorships and compensation plans for former service members who have chosen a career in real estate.
“The best real estate agents are those who have a service mindset,” says Chad Ruggles, SVP for Vylla Home. “They're not just there to help facilitate transactions. They're providing a service that helps a person sell a house, buy another house and coordinate that service. A lot of Veterans who are service-minded become great agents, because the best agents aren't thinking about themselves. They're thinking about the client; and that mindset is a natural fit for us.”
