WWASHINGTON, D.C. – February 12, 2015 – (RealEstateRama) — ith the Spring housing market coming, Georgia Homes For Heroes is gearing up to serve as many Heroes as possible. Georgia Homes For Heroes aims to help close the gap between the cost of housing and buyers in the following groups: military personnel, police officers, firefighters, teachers, first responders and others who serve our community and nation.
Homes for Heroes®, is celebrating its 13th year of bringing big savings to everyday heroes. Inspired by the hometown heroes who serve and protect their communities and our country, a partnership of realtors, mortgage lenders, title companies, and appraisers created Homes for Heroes, Incorporated. This collaboration of real estate professionals’ sole purpose is to offer savings when buying or selling a home.
Homes for Heroes® has already served hundreds of local heroes including a Police Sergeant who said, “This is not a gimmick. There is no extra paper work or special guidelines or income limits. Homes for Heroes is comprised of full service real estate, mortgage and title company professionals, who have long established reputations. Both the sale and the purchase of my home went off without a hitch. Homes for Heroes® saved us nearly $5000.00 at closing. When raising a young family, every penny counts! I would definitely recommend this program to my fellow officers.”
Ruth Johnson is one of the founding members who started Homes For Heroes Inc. in 2001.“We all share an admiration for the people who serve our community and our nation selflessly and we wanted to recognize and show our appreciation in a meaningful way, “said Johnson.
While the programs genesis and primary concentration originally was intended to serve the Minnesota real estate market, word of the Homes For Heroes® benefits unpredictably spread throughout the country. With the far-reaching power of the Internet, this small-dedicated local effort spiraled into a growing nationwide program. Georgia Homes for Heroes serves those in the North Atlanta area.
“What some people do not realize is that when a new service or company creates and activates a website, you immediately have world-wide exposure and you had better be prepared for that! We had to promptly scramble to find affiliates in other states to connect with the heroes calling in from all over the country. We are pleasantly surprised with the company’s growth and how our mission has helped so many with homeownership”, said Johnson.
Homes for Heroes offers significant rebates and discounts and are continually seeking other housing related services to offer further discounts.
