Los Angeles, California, February 13, 2013 - Douglas Lagos, Realtor Associate with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Brentwood – Los Angeles, has achieved the rare distinction of becoming nationally certified to work with and understand the uniqueness of buying and selling homes to military borrowers and foreclosure prevention during financial hardships after graduating from the Certified Military Housing Specialist Course, which is exclusively offered by USA Cares, Inc, a national military assistance nonprofit that gives emergency financial support to military and their families.
This course aims to educate real estate professionals on the differences in buying and selling to the military communities by training them on the unique lifestyle circumstances often typical in the military.
“We are the only national organization offering this type of training,” said Peter Giusti, president of USA Cares.” It’s important for the real estate community to understand to serve our nation’s military with the highest standard. They can’t do that unless they understand the military’s world and language.”
Besides educating real estate professionals, the course gives them advice regarding foreclosure prevention in the military community – all for the purpose of better serving military customers and coaching them on how to avoid mortgage delinquencies.
