The VLB Outreach Marketing Staff provides training to Real Estate Professionals on our Land and Home Loan programs. VLB training opportunities are approved by the Texas Real Estate Commission (TREC) for continuing education credits. Real Estate Professionals who complete a VLB training class may register on our website and be listed on a searchable database.

If you are a licensed Texas real estate agent or broker, and you would like to be listed in our registry, you must complete an MCE course approved by the VLB. MCE courses currently approved are:

Upon completion of an approved course, you should have an understanding of program benefits and opportunities available to Texas veterans for home or land ownership through VLB loan programs. You will also have completed instruction in the VLB loan application process. Instructions on how to register will be provided at each training course.

Agents or brokers who are listed on the registry have the ability and responsibility to update their own records to provide to Texas veterans the most current information regarding their firms.  Login
