Homes for Heroes is proud to recognize the accomplishments of our real estate agents and lenders when it comes to helping our nations heroes, but these individuals have taken it to the next level.

The savings received from these real estate specialists made home ownership more attainable for these heroes and their families.
Homes for Heroes is proud to announce that each of these individuals were inducted into the 100 Heroes Served Club for their outstanding achievement.
THE KENMORE TEAM
Real Estate Agent Affiliate Team
The Kenmore Team is owned by Lance Kenmore and his team have been in the real estate business since 1999. Lance grew up in a family with veteran grandparents and his mother is an elementary school teacher. Being exposed to what the heroes in his life had done, motivates him and his team to give back to their community heroes.
The Kenmore Team has helped and given back to 110 heroes since joining Homes for Heroes in March, 2014. When asked what the program has meant to him, Kenmore said, “Wow. Our community has given us an amazing business and supported us. In the beginning, we were looking for a way to have a significant impact on the community and we’ve found that with Homes for Heroes. I love being able to give back and serve our community heroes who work so tirelessly for us.”

Brandon and Heidi have helped and given back to 106 heroes since joining Homes for Heroes in March, 2014. When asked what the program has meant to him, Johnson said, “We are passionate about real estate but we also believe in giving back to the community.

Mortgage Loan Originator
Home Bridge Financial, Atlanta, GA
Gianni was the first Georgia Homes for Heroes affiliate lender and he has been working with Homes for Heroes for over 5 years. He is very passionate about helping his local community heroes. He is an expert in VA loans and he is a certified military loan specialist. During his off time, he works with charitable organizations like the USO, Wounded Warriors and many other Veteran related organizations.
Gianni has helped and given back to 103 heroes since joining Homes for Heroes. When asked what the program has meant to him, Cerretani said, “What really drove the program home for me was when I found myself caught in a funeral procession for a local State Trooper that had been killed. I saw all the fire trucks, police cars and state trooper cars from various states in that procession, and they were there to support that fallen officer and his family. After that, I knew I had to join Homes for Heroes. There is no better feeling than sitting at the closing table and being able to take a picture of your clients holding a big check that shows them just how much you were able to help them save. This has nothing to do with loans or real estate, it’s all about helping these heroes and taking care of the people that take care of us.”
“These affiliates exemplify what it means to be a member of the Homes for Heroes program. It requires more than just helping Heroes with their real estate needs. It means getting involved in the community and helping Heroes with whatever they need. We couldn’t be more proud to have professionals of this caliber as a part of our team and representing the Heroes of their local communities,” says Ruth Johnson, Homes for Heroes CEO.
Congratulations to all of you! Job well done. Keep up the extraordinary work.
