Transitioning Military Personnel: What’s Your EXIT Strategy?

Some transitioning military personnel struggle to identify their transferable skills and then apply them to a lucrative and rewarding career.  Discipline, accountability, communication skills and leadership are often undervalued by the 9 to 5 employer.  Coupled with the desire to build a future that allows for more time with their family and substantial earnings potential, the search for a new career can be daunting.

A career in real estate sales or franchise ownership may tick all the boxes.  To be self-employed requires tremendous discipline.  Home buyers and sellers insist on accountability and a clear, concise line of communication.  To build a successful brokerage operation requires proven leadership skills. However, traditional real estate falls short when it comes to work/life balance and building a secure financial future.

In traditional two-dimensional real estate, agents earn money by taking listings and making sales.  They earn commission only when sales close and often there are gaps between closings causing a financial vacuum.  Also, when the closings stop, the income stops causing agents to work long hours away from their families with little reward.  There is no opportunity to take a break from the business, retire with security or to build family wealth.

EXIT Realty is the only real estate company that solves these problems head-on by providing a third income stream which allows its associates to help build the company through a process known as sponsoring.  Whenever you as an EXIT Associate introduce an agent to management and they are hired, as a special thank you, EXIT’s head office pays you a bonus the equivalent of 10% of their gross closed commission to a maximum of $10,000 per recruit per year.  EXIT is not a multi-level company; this is single-level residual income.  Use it to fill the gaps between closings, to pay for vacations, your children’s education, or invest to build wealth – any way you see fit.

If you decide to take a break from real estate or when it comes time for you to retire, your sponsoring bonuses continue at a rate of 7%.  You can enhance your retirement benefit by continuing to sponsor agents anywhere there is an EXIT office.  And EXIT didn’t forget about your loved ones.  Should something happen to you, your sponsoring bonuses convert to a 5% beneficiary residual to help provide financial security for those left behind.

EXIT Realty’s unique Formula of single-level residuals is a proven business model.  The company has to-date, paid out over a third of a billion dollars in sponsoring bonuses to its associates across the continent.

The portability of the EXIT Formula also makes for an ideal option for the spouses of acting service personnel.  Spouses often struggle to build lucrative careers due to the transient nature of military family life. EXIT Realty has dozens of real estate brokerage locations near military bases.  A spouse who becomes an agent with EXIT Realty, builds a career and sponsors others will be able to refer that real estate business to another agent in the system and continue to receive their sponsoring bonuses when the time comes to transfer to another EXIT Realty office.

For military personnel planning their exit strategy from a very structured environment, EXIT Realty’s Agent Transition Plan provides a track to run on. We provide the tools for each agent to become thoroughly oriented and trained in the basics of successful real estate sales and to brand and market him or herself  to the community. EXIT seeks out the latest technology tools available and then teaches each agent how to use them. The corporate culture is supportive and fun and this comradery extends to the brokerage level where associates help and encourage each other much like a good team would do.

EXIT Realty understands that continuing to be of service is important to transitioning military personnel.  Thousands of EXIT Realty Associates believe that guiding people
through the process of buying the largest purchase of their lives, the home where their children sleep at night, makes for a very satisfying career.  EXIT Realty has also partnered with Homes for Heroes through its Approved Supplier Network.  Homes for Heroes provides discounts for first responders, military personnel and veterans, teachers and health care workers during the home buying and selling process.

EXIT Realty believes in a bright future for our veterans and thanks you for your service. Visit for more information.
