PHOENIX, March 31, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The American Warrior Initiative (AWI) and Arizona branches of Fairway Independent Mortgage Corporation will provide Certified Military Residential Specialist (CMRS) training to 400 Real Estate Agents on May 4th, 2017 at JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort and Spa.
The brave men and women of the United States Armed Forces have endured incredible hardships and sacrifice to defend our freedom and often face uphill battles upon returning to the states, including the purchase of a home. These unique challenges drive the objective of the CMRS program to provide real estate professionals with the tools and knowledge required to better serve these heroes.
Real Estate Agents will leave the event with three general Continued Education (CE) credit hours, Military Residential Specialist Certification and a deeper understanding of what it means to serve those who serve.
Following the training an Arizona veteran recipient, to be named at the event, will be presented with a check for funds collected by training registration fees and donations.
"AWI and Fairway are grateful to our veterans for their service to our nation. They are true heroes and we want to honor them for that service. Through these events we are hoping to inspire others to do whatever they can to give back to our wounded heroes," said Louise Thaxton, director of Fairway's American Warrior Initiative and the Military Mortgage Specialist Division.
Speaking at the event is Sean Parnell, frequent contributor to Fox News, co-founder of AWI, decorated US Army Captain, Airborne Ranger and author of The New York Times best-selling book "Outlaw Platoon," which details Parnell's experiences serving on one of the most brutal and longest deployments in OEF history. Parnell is the recipient of two Bronze Stars, one for Valor, a Purple Heart, and numerous other awards.
