Prudential PenFed Realty pays start up costs for military and their spouses

Everyone who knows me knows I think Prudential PenFed Realty is the most awesome company out there. The programs they offer for their members are simply head and shoulders above what any one else has available. Now they have gone and surprised me again with their awesome “Real Heroes” program which helps retired veterans and their spouses, and active-duty men and women as they leave the military, begin a career in real estate. The program covers the cost of training, certification, licensing, and materials to become a Prudential PenFed Realty Sales Professional.

Lots of companies offer to pay for your real estate class but to the best of my knowledge we are the only one that actually pays for the class and your start-up costs.

What does this mean in dollars and cents? About $2500!

Yep, you read that correctly! Prudential PenFed Realty will cover the cost of real estate school, state licensing, first year’s dues for the association of REALTORS, fees to join the multiple listing service, errors and omissions insurance, and company fees – up to $2500!  This is an outstanding, unprecedented opportunity for anyone in or married to a current or past member of the US Armed Services.  The only real condition is that you commit to PenFed Realty for two years – that it!Real Heroes

New York City a Real Estate Bargain?

Usually when I think of Manhattan, the last words that comes to mind are “bargain” or “affordable” but if you are one of the lucky few of the “Global 1%”, a penthouse in NYC is a bargain compared to say super chic Monaco where a million dollars will not buy you much more than a bedroom – and a small 160 square foot bedroom at that! Compared to NYC where you can get a 430 square feet bedroom, bath, living room/kitchen combination, it is a deal!

Best bargain for billionaire buyers? Cape Town, South Africa where your $1M will buy you a spacious, sprawling 2300+ square foot penthouse.
