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.
"There is a huge portion of the hospitality sector that may not have jobs when we come through the other side of this," said Darren Kittleson, Operating Principle at Keller Williams. "Historically that group tends to be really great real estate agents."
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.
"There is always a need for great real estate agents," said Kittleson.
"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."
The course through Keller Williams starts on July 6 and is expected to be a five week course.
If you are collecting unemployment, you are allowed to keep receiving your benefits until you make your first commissioned sale.
