Don Perrin is the Founder and Owner of MilVets Home Team and the driving force behind everything we do.
His vision to provide real estate expertise and leadership to fellow service members and veterans is why MilVets Home Team exists today.
While Don has technically only been working in real estate for less than a decade, his passion for the industry dates back to when he was just a teenager. After buying his first home at the age of 19, Don “caught the real estate bug,” and realized how accessible owning a property could be.
However, Don began his professional career as an Enlisted Commissioned Officer (also known as a Mustang) in the United States Navy in 1979. Don’s career in the US Navy would go on to span over 20 years, and like most military service members, he would spend much of it stationed in quite a few different places — from the southeast coast of the United States to South East Asia, where he spent three years based in Guam, Japan, and the Philippines.
Don returned to the United States after his time stationed overseas and achieved his real estate license in 1986, while still working for the US Navy. His love for real estate influenced his long-term retirement plans; however, he did not enter the real estate industry directly after retiring from the military.
After his exit from the US Navy in 1999, Don took up a position as Vice President and Chief Technology Officer at an information technology firm, where he directed and managed several systems engineering projects for 16 years.
Don’s technical position as CTO of his IT firm heavily influences his avid appreciation and use of technology in his current real estate career, where he develops highly technical marketing and communications strategies for MilVets Home Team.
Don’s long-term vision for his career in real estate was to apply the values of integrity, honesty, and teamwork he learned from his time in the military to the real estate industry. Today, he translates the concept of teamwork and team building to help fellow service members and veterans accomplish their real estate goals.
Across all of Don’s personal and professional ventures, he has learned firsthand that you will not get anywhere trying to accomplish a mission by yourself; you always travel further and achieve more when someone has your six.
