At this stage, some important milestones may include loan pre-approval, a market analysis, identifying your ideal home, conducting a home search, determining and/or negotiating an offer, and completing an official home inspection. This is what we do for our heroes and we do it well.

Our Way to Thank You
One of the benefits of working with Homes for Heroes is our Hero Rewards savings. On average Firefighter Professionals save $2,400 when they buy or sell a house with us. Hero Rewards savings is our way to give back and thank you for your service. When you work with our local real estate agent specialist to purchase a home and/or sell a house, Homes for Heroes will send you a Hero Rewards check after you close on your house. When you sign a new mortgage or refinance a mortgage, you receive reduced lending fees. In addition, our title company and home inspector specialists provide discounts on their services.

If it wasn't for the Homes for Heroes program becoming a home owner would be close to impossible. It changed my life for the absolute best.

Our realtor was fantastic with explaining the whole Home for Heroes process, and made everything so easy for us. You could tell she was really vested into the success of the program.
Firefighter - CA
Homes for Heros is great!! Super fast and helpful. Once I saw the place I wanted they took care of everything and I knew they had my back during the process because they were part of homes for Heros. This program was referred to me by a fellow veteran and I couldn't be happier with the service! Keep doing what you guys do!

Firefighter - WI
It was as painless as could be. My realator did all the work, I didnt even know it was happening. The amount of money returned to me was much greater than what I had thought, and a wonderful surprise. I recomend that everyone that qualifies uses this program. My agent was wonderful and I would recomend her to anyone that I know. Thanks much for this great experiance, and what an awesome program to have available to me.
