Homes For Heroes, is celebrating its tenth year of bringing big savings to everyday heroes. This collaboration of real estate professionals’ sole purpose is to offer savings when buying or selling a home.

Police Officer and soldier, Katie Blackwell, and spokesperson for Homes For Heroes, returned from serving, along side her husband Steve, in Iraq with the National Guard. Through her efforts in distributing information about the program to fellow soldiers, Homes For Heroes has been able to assist soldiers returning home, matching them to enthusiastic real estate affiliates eager to support our troops by way of great benefits offered by the program. We are ramping up quickly to align with the debriefing and reintegration initiatives at several military bases in anticipation of the large amount of returning troops.

Homes For Heroes has already served thousands of  heroes nationwide, including a Police Sergeant who said, “This is not a gimmick. There is no extra paper work or special guidelines or income limits. Homes For Heroes is comprised of full service real estate, mortgage and title company professionals, who have long established reputations. Both the sale and the purchase of my home went off without a hitch. Homes For Heroes saved us nearly $5000.00 at closing. When raising a young family, every penny counts! I would definitely recommend this program to my fellow officers.”

Ruth Johnson is one of the founding members who started Homes For Heroes, Inc. in 2001.
“We all share an admiration for the people who serve our community and our nation selflessly and we wanted to recognize and show our appreciation in a meaningful way, “said Johnson.

While the programs genesis and primary concentration originally was intended to serve the Minnesota real estate market, word of the Homes For Heroes benefits unpredictably spread throughout the country. With the far-reaching power of the Internet, this small-dedicated local effort spiraled into a growing nationwide program.

Patton Property Group at Keller Williams gives 25% of real estate commissions to heroes. Rowena Patton is the founder of this group, the #1 Team in Asheville NC.

" I have been planning a group that gives back to the military for some time, and then I was honored to be asked to represent Homes for Heroes in the Asheville NC area. Teachers, nurses, firemen, police, military and other first responders deserve a break - I am proud to be able to help when they are buying or selling a home”, says Patton.

“We would like to start off by saying Thank you very much for all that you did for us during a very difficult time in our lives. Our endeavor began about a year and a half ago while I was stationed overseas in Afghanistan. Lupe and I were engaged to be married at the time and looking for a home in San Antonio. Lupe was in our home town of El Paso when we decided to move to San Antonio and purchase a home. We were both extremely nervous seeing as how the whole process was going to have to be handled via Internet. You were highly recommended by family and friends and like a true professional, took on this daunting task without hesitation. Despite the twelve and a half hour difference, you communicated with me on a daily basis while I was in Afghanistan and sent me information on a continuous basis. You found us our new home and it was purchased while I was overseas. Shortly thereafter, I was injured overseas and shipped back home. Due to my state of health, I was unable to be deployed back overseas and soon thereafter reached a financial crisis forcing us to put our new home on the market. As one could probably imagine, we expected to lose a lot money since we had not accumulated any equity. We called you for assistance and it was as though we had called a family member to assist us. You met us at our home, advised us accordingly, placed our home back on the market, and not only did you sell it within the year, we walked away from the home with money in our pockets. You not only sold our home, but you informed me about the homes for heroes program and made us an extra $1,867.50. You are considered part of our family now and have been referred to family and friends moving to San Antonio from different parts of the United States. Thank you soooo much…” Joe and Lupe Carrizal US Veteran, San Antonio, TX

“We finally own our home, thanks to Dawn and the Home Search BCS Team! We had such great service from her, and she worked so hard to make our dreams come true. We had several issues with our lender before we changed to our Homes for Heroes lender, Jennifer Ott. She was also amazing. Dawn worked with us through everything & kept us from giving up! Not to mention the savings we received through the Homes for Heroes program. We will be forever grateful for her help and this wonderful program!” Mark & Kimberley Decker — 911 Dispatch

“Wow, where do we begin?!?! Homes for Heroes not only helped us find our dream home, they saved us $2,374 in the process. Our Realtor calmed our home buyer jitters and made this a fun and exciting process! This was our second time purchasing a home and we understood the process a lot more this time. Our Realtor gave us the information we needed and explained things so we felt like confident, informed buyers and not in the dark. Initially we thought Homes for Heroes was just too good to be true, but every word our Realtor said about the program was true…. NO red tape, NO extra forms, NO catches… JUST $AVINGS!!! The professionals who make up the Homes for Heroes team were great and went above and beyond to assist us every step of the way. With the money Homes for Heroes saved us, we were able to purchase a refrigerator for our beautiful new kitchen! I would recommend Homes for Heroes to qualifying friends, coworkers and family alike. Real savings from a team of people that REALLY care, why are people still reading this….call already!! Thanks Homes for Heroes!!”

“Mike and I never thought we would be able to find a home in our price rangewithin his fire station’s territory. But, when Mike heard about Homes for Heroes we decided to talk with one of their Realtors with the idea that we would prepare ourselves to buy a home in the next few years. To our complete surprise, our Realtor had a perfect house for us that was in our current price range. With the help of the wonderful and hard-working staff at their mortgage company, we were able to secure a mortgage and move into our home. The entire process was very quick and much easier than I ever expected. Thanks, Homes for Heroes, for helping us become homeowners!”
