Life as a public servant is a calling of the highest regard. Long hours, difficult work, and challenges are some of the ways to describe the amazing work that everyday heroes do. Heroes are the backbone of society, and we want to thank you for your incredible service.

Our mission is to give back to the brave men and women that serve our country. Since 2002 Homes for Heroes has been dedicated to giving back to:
The Homes for Heroes Process
The first step when working with a Homes for Heroes real estate specialist is to let us know if you are looking to buy, sell, or refinance a home in Washington D.C. The D.C. area is a fabulous area to purchase a home. Whether you are a first-time homebuyer, or you’ve been through the buying and selling process before, Homes for Heroes will help you through.
When you use a Homes for Heroes affiliate real estate agent to purchase your home, you will receive $700 on every $100,000 spent. This means, if you buy or sell a home for $250,000, you will receive a check after your closing for $1,750. If you use a local Homes for Heroes mortgage lender, you can save $500 on lending fees as well. While this might sound too good to be true, it’s really the least we can do for a hero like you. There is no catch, no fees, no fine print, and most of all, no additional work to you. We even connect you with a real estate agent in the D.C. area.
In addition to helping out heroes, Homes for Heroes also gives a portion of its earnings to the Homes for Heroes Foundation. Every time you buy or sell your home using Homes for Heroes, the circle of giving continues through the Homes for Heroes Foundation grants that are awarded to local nonprofits to help heroes in need.
