VIRGINIA BEACH, Va., June 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Blu Skyy Realty has already turned heads with its innovative, cloud-based real estate brokerage; now, the agency is keen to give military veterans an opportunity to build personal wealth by becoming licensed real estate agents. Blu Skyy has recently become one of the newest partners of the Virginia Values Veterans (V3) Program, a Commonwealth-wide initiative to bridge the gap between veterans and the employers who want to hire them.
The V3 Program launched in 2012 with a mandate to connect employers with veterans across the Commonwealth. The program provides all the resources necessary for employers to implement proven best practices in recruiting and retaining qualified veterans. More information on the program is available at https://www.dvsv3.com/.
"At Blu Skyy, we're continuing to disrupt the traditional broker model," explains Chief Executive Officer Frank Tommaso. "Our participation in the V3 Program is one more example of how we do things different. Virginia has an enormous and underutilized talent pool in the form of its thousands of veterans. The skills learned in the course of military service – leadership, communication, discipline – overlap perfectly with the skills required of a top-performing real estate agent. Therefore, it only makes sense for us to join the hundreds of other Virginia companies already taking advantage of the V3 Program."
As home to numerous military bases and related facilities, the Commonwealth of Virginia is in a unique position to leverage the experience and skills of its veterans. Virginia has both the youngest and the fastest-growing veteran population in the U.S. Thousands more veterans enter the workforce every year, and that rate is expected to continue climbing.
While analysts continue to harp on uncertainty as the major driver of today's real estate market, Blu Skyy has worked hard to develop a high-tech, web-based brokerage that's resistant to typical market fluctuations. The cloud-based business model serves to increase agent productivity and enhance customer service, while also providing numerous opportunities for growth. Blu Skyy has deployed all of the most advanced tools to engineer a fully web 3.0 experience – connecting not just data, but people.
Blu Skyy agents have access to a cloud-based customer relationship management (CRM) system, complete with mobile apps and other productivity tools. Everything an agent needs to excel is provided, including daily lead generation. The efficiency and low overhead of a cloud-based brokerage means a better experience for buyers, sellers and agents.
To prepare veterans and other newcomers to the world of real estate sales, Blu Skyy Realty operates the Blu Skyy Academy in partnership with Kaplan Real Estate Education. The academy also gives experienced agents a powerful tool for professional development. Blu Skyy has been recognized as one of Virginia's best places to work for two years running, and that culture starts from the first interview and continues throughout an agent's career.
"Excellent communication skills, a strong work ethic and a passion for success are all that's needed to do well in real estate," concludes Tommaso. "We look forward to showing veterans the incredible opportunities available in real estate today."
