The job and housing market have been some of the most areas impacted from Covid-19. A Madison realtor company is bringing both of those worlds together starting in July.
Keller Williams Realty is offering to pay for instruction and materials for anyone to become a real estate agent starting on July 6.
The idea came from the amount of hospitality workers being out of work from the pandemic.
#8220;There is a huge portion of the hospitality sector that may not have jobs when we come through the other side of this,#8221; said Darren Kittleson, Operating Principle at Keller Williams. #8220;Historically that group tends to be really great real estate agents.#8221;
Around the state the housing market dropped about 25 percent in May. In Madison the market is still competitive. Some houses sell within hours of being on the market. Making a need for more realtors.
#8220;There is always a need for great real estate agents,#8221; said Kittleson.
#8220;I say great agents because there is a mix of people that think that coming into real estate would be a great career opportunity and it is if you treat it that way.#8221;
