VAREP and its members represent and work within all sectors of the real estate, housing and financial services industries. Membership is open to anyone and is not limited to those who have served.
“I am honoured to be leading the San Diego VAREP Chapter to serving the 224,881 veterans in San Diego County,” said Robert Calloway, San Diego Chapter President. “We advocate in the policy arena on their behalf, empower our membership to better serve their real estate needs and encourage organizations to create housing programs that suit the military and veteran unique needs.”
