Welcome Adam Bove, Lender – Cincinnati, OH

 Adam Bove, Lender – Cincinnati, OHWhen I was introduced to Homes for Heroes, it was an instant match.  I always go out of my way to give back to those that give so much for our children, our communities, and our country.  I was unable to serve, but helping those who have is the next best thing for me and it is an honor to do so.

I have been in the Mortgage Industry since 2001 and have had a career that has gone from LO, to Manager, to upper Management.  Throughout this journey, I saw a need for treating people and their situations with a personal touch.  When working with buyers/sellers, I make sure that every individual is provided the highest level of support, education, and communication to make their home buying or refinancing process as smooth as possible.

Simply put, I want to help those that have help the rest of us and ask for nothing in return.  Good hearted and caring people deserve to get the best because they embody what it means to human!  More importantly, we all should strive to be better and give back to make our world a better place for all.

Welcome Carl Garrett, Lender – Culpeper, VA

I have been a mortgage originator in central Virginia for fifteen years.  Qualifying for a mortgage is sure tougher than it used to be, and I enjoy the challenge of leading my borrowers through the process and helping them into their new home.

I joined Homes for Heroes because our Heroes are people who do a lot for their communities than they are paid.  We should all remember to find ways to give back and say thank-you to those who make our communities safer and stronger.

Along with being a mortgage originator, I am also a writer.  I’ve been recognized for several movie screenplays that I wrote, and I’m currently working on a novel.

Welcome Anita Spencer, Realtor – Sparks, NV

 #HomesForHeroes #HelpWithClosingCostsMy name is Anita Spencer and I am a realtor with Krch Realty.  I wanted to become a part of the Homes for Heroes program because I would like to give back to our men and women who make such a difference in our everyday lives.  My husband is a former military man.  I know and understand the sacrifices that are made with time spent away from family in order to make our country a safe and secure place to live.  The Homes for Heroes program gives me the opportunity to say “thank you” to the people who protect our borders and our lives.  By working in a profession, which I love, and my affiliation with this program, I am able to give back to my community “one home at a time”.

Welcome Mary Shields, Lender – Medford, Oregon

Mary Shields, Lender – Medford, OregonSince becoming a mortgage lender in 1997, my passion has been to help my clients to achieve their goals and dreams.  It is exciting to me because it’s never one size fits all.  One day I may be talking to a young couple about to embark on their future together in their first home.  Another day I may be helping parents use the equity they have accumulated in their home to finance their child’s college education.  When the Homes for Heroes program was introduced to me, I thought it sounded like a perfect way to help accomplish the goals and dreams of the veterans and related professions that have done so much for me and my family by sacrificing their time and lives in the service of our country to help keep us FREE!

I look forward to extending my lending expertise to these Heroes and really finding out what is important to them and determining the RIGHT strategy to get them into the home they have been dreaming of.

I’ve called Medford, Oregon my home for over 35 years and my husband and I have raised our son and daughter to think independently and value the freedoms that have been fought for so diligently by our men in uniform.  I am honored to be an affiliate of Homes for Heroes and look forward to serving the Heroes in our area in my small way and extending my appreciation to each and every one of them for the service that they’ve provided to our country!
