 As first time home buyers my wife and I were very nervous about the process. Ms. Blanca Smith and her team at Leader One Financial were amazing! Ms. Smith took the time to walk us through every part of the home buying  process. She keep us informed throughout the whole process so we knew what was going on at all times. She accommodated my abnormal night shifts schedule by working late and on the weekends. Thanks to Ms. Smith's help we were able to get the home we really wanted at a great price!The incentives on closing costs and loan fees helped us save so much money! I am recommending Ms. Smith to all of my friends who are looking to buy houses whether they qualify for Homes for Heroes program or not!Andrew and Ashley Mustain ,Houston, Texas Police Officer.

I'm a Firefighter for the Houston Fire Department where we fight fires and are EMS. I'm just writing this to tell anyone who was thinking about buying a home my personal experience with this program. I was internet looking for homes when some of the guys around me started talking about buying their first home and their experiences.  It’s then when I realized there was a lot more than just having some money saved. there were things that I was a bit foggy on like how much money was need to put down on the house, closing cost , fix rates and so on. Well one of the guys had mentioned he used a program called Homes for Heroes and that they helped him with closing costs. So I decided look them up and give the program a try. Right from the start I was taken step by step through what I need to save and paperwork needed. My Realtor was especially nice and very patient going from house to house new construction to older home not being sure on what I wanted. In closing, I found the program very helpful and easy to go through. They take you step by step, and then you’re in your home.

"During the sale of our home in Des Moines we became aware of the Homes for Heroes program. We decided to submit our contact information online to be connected with a Homes for Heroes realtor for the purchase of a home in the Corridor area. We were contacted within a few short hours by Maria White, with Exit Hawk Realty. Maria was flexible, honest, fun and easy to work with. And we can't forget that the Homes for Heroes program provided us with over $2,000 back in our pocket. That doesn't happen too often when you purchase a home with just any realtor."

"Homes for Heroes is an amazing program. I couldn’t have asked for more help during the process of buying a home.  In my line of work everyone is always trying to find an affordable edge.  Most people talk about the HUD program, which is ok, however Homes for Heroes opens you up to more than twice the number of homes.  Anything you find for sale is a Homes for Heroes home and could quickly be yours. Anyone using Homes for Heroes in the Winston Salem, NC area and working with Ruth McMasters is lucky.  When she says that she works to make your home the best, she means it. Ruth was always available for questions and concerns, as well as reassuring you when you don’t know how you are going to make it (for those first time home buyers). I cannot thank Ruth and the Homes for Heroes program enough.  They have put us into a dream that became a home.  If you qualify, you really need to be with Homes for Heroes when you start looking."

“We were thrilled to learn we could buy our home and save nearly $3,000 because of Homes for Heroes.  Doug Martin of The Marc Austin Highfill team at Exit First Realty worked hard to make it happen.  We will definitely tell our friends about the program.  Thanks Homes for Heroes for helping us make our dream of owning a home." – David and Jennifer Woods, Richmond, Va.

The Grant Family

This program proved to me that it truly does cares about its Heroes.  Back this summer, I lost a fellow officer and friend in the line of duty.  He was killed in traffic accident while responding to assist another officer.  Mrs. McMaster knew that this officer was a friend of mine, so the Homes for Heroes Program made a donation in the name of that officer. 

Another awesome benefit with this program is that part of your realtor’s commission is used to assist you in your closing cost.  Any extra money that is left over from that, it is then donated to the charity of your choice.  A short time after our closing, we had a family member pass due to cancer.  The left over money from our closing costs was donated to the American Cancer Society in the name of our deceased family member.  This deceased family member just a happened to be a great teacher too.

Finally, I would highly recommend this program to any of our Heroes.  Believe me when I say that this is a great program and that I will most definitely use this program in the future for selling or buying a home.  “Service DOES Deserve its Rewards” – Mark Grant and family

“My home search and buying experience with "Home for Heroes" was nothing less than AWWWESOME!!!!!! My realtor Ruth McMasters from the very beginning great starting with the initial professional, informative and encouraging phone conversation.There are so many pros and cons with traditional home buying and various programs in this market that, an expert with many real estate experiences as Ruth is a blessing.  Meeting Ruth was certainly a game changer for me.  As a program participant I recieved great savings. My wish would be that other "Heroes" take advantage of the "Homes for Heroes" program!”  –Mary Phillips

THE BLACKWELLS
“Homes for Heroes counseled us through the very frustrating process of buying a home during a period when most of the inventory for sale is short-sales and foreclosed properties. In the end, we found our dream home. Especially now with all the economic uncertainty, we need to save as much money as we can. That is why I would encourage my fellow Police officers and Military brethren to check out the extraordinary service and savings at Homes for Heroes.” Police Sgt. Steven Blackwell and Police Officer Katie Blackwell, Active
THE WILHELMS
“Homes for Heroes made buying our first home such a great adventure. The entire Homes for Heroes team was wonderful to work with, especially our realtor, he was so much help and never pushy or over-bearing like some realtors can be. His honesty was our most valuable asset and we knew that when he told us about Homes for Heroes, we could trust him. He didn’t steer us wrong, and like he told us: no red tape, no hidden agenda or fees, no restrictions what so ever! He was always just a phone call away and even went out of his way to make sure everything was running smoothly. Buying your first home (or any home for that matter) is a huge step and investment. We knew that with Homes for Heroes, we were getting the most out of the experience. Homes for Heroes not only saved us money, but helped us feel like our service to our community is appreciated. We’ve already been telling everyone about Homes for Heroes and will continue to do so. Much thanks to Homes for Heroes!”
