MADISON, Wis., Sept. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The American Warrior Initiative (AWI) and Wisconsin branches of Fairway Independent Mortgage (Fairway) will provide American Warrior Real Estate Professional (AWREP) training to 500 Real Estate Agents on September 7, 2016 at the Madison Marriott West. This training event highlights the need to educate the housing industry on the special skills and knowledge required to better serve American veterans in their home-buying decisions. In addition to the Madison event, the AWI is also hosting events in Wisconsin Dells on September 8 and Marshfield on September 9, 2016.
The brave men and women of the US 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 AWREP 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 3 Wisconsin CE Credit Hours, American Warrior Real Estate Professional Certification and a deeper understanding of what it means to serve those who serve.
Following the training a local veteran recipient, to be named at the event, will be presented with a Service Dog.
"AWI and Fairway are grateful to this veteran for his service to our nation. He is a true hero and we want to honor him 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 the American Warrior Initiative, decorated US Army Captain, Airborne Ranger and author of the NYT bestselling 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 2 Bronze Stars, one for Valor, a Purple Heart, and numerous other awards.
The Press is invited to meet this Wisconsin hero and capture his story as well as interview special guest speakers Sean Parnell and Louise Thaxton.
