Millionaire Mastermind Academy Accepting Applications for Fall Real Estate Accelerator Program for Minority Women

The Millionaire Mastermind Academy Real Estate Accelerator Program is further expanding access to careers in the real estate industry. The program is now accepting applications for its upcoming fall 2022 program, announced Thinkzilla Consulting Group. Welcoming up to 50 diverse women applicants, the 12-week hybrid program consists of virtual classes plus two in-person days. The event takes place at American Landmark Apartments. The Tampa multifamily owner-operator is one of the top apartment owners in the country and the lead sponsor of the program. Additional sponsors include M&T Bank, Truist Bank, Country Financial and Prospect Real Estate Group.

Only four percent of real estate companies are owned by women or minorities. Women represent just over one-third of the commercial real estate industry, according to the Commercial Real Estate Women (CREW) Network. This highlights the need for customized accelerator programs in real estate devoted to helping all women.

The 12-week course begins on September 19th. It’ll cover a wide range of topics applicable to the field of residential and commercial real estate. They range from developing a professional mindset to Fair Housing Laws to marketing to property management and leasing. Upon completion of the course, students may be eligible for an apprenticeship at American Landmark. They may also receive a scholarship to cover the cost of completing a Florida real estate licensing class.

To qualify

Eligible applicants must be a minority female over the age of 18; based in or near the Tampa, Florida market or willing to travel for the two days of in-person classes in Tampa on September 26 and October 24; looking to pursue a successful career in either residential or commercial real estate; and willing and able to commit 3 to 5 hours per week.

Complete the application by the August 15, 2022 deadline: https://form.jotform.com/221715504251143.

The fall 2021 program graduated a dozen women who received college-level business training, access to real estate licensing, training in property management and Fair Housing laws, access to mentors and business networks, and more.

“The housing market continues to explode from coast to coast. There are incredible opportunities for more diverse voices, entrepreneurs and interests in the real estate industry. We are incredibly proud to contribute to this growth,” said program founder Dr. Velma Trayham. “Our graduates are changing this industry from the inside out, one transaction at a time.”

“American Landmark is honored to continue our partnership with the Millionaire Mastermind Academy. We’re excited to open doors for more minority women in the real estate industry and to promote the values of diversity, leadership and entrepreneurialism that our company is founded on,” said Joe Lubeck, CEO of American Landmark.
