Homes For Heroes

Homes for Heroes provides real savings for real people who work every day to make our communities safer, cleaner and better places yo live.

We are a network of real estate professionals, mortgage brokers and title companies prepared to give real savings to their communities’ Heroes when they buy or sell a home.

This program is a way to say thank you. 



Who qualifies as a hero?

Anyone can be a Hero! There are many Heroes in our communities:

  • Health Care Professionals
    (doctors, dentists, chiropractors, nurses, physician assistants)
  • Military Personnel
    (Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, veterans)
  • Educators and Educational Support
    (teachers, teachers assistants, custodians)
  • Emergency Response Personnel
    (fire, police, paramedic)


How much will I actually save?

The total amount you will save will depend on the final selling or buying price of your home. Homes for Heroes Affiliates have agreed to the following rebates and discounts:

  • Real Estate Agent
    25% rebate on the gross brokerage commission
  • Mortgage Lender
    Discounted lender fees on purchase or refinance

Do I have to use all of your affiliates (agents and lenders) to receive the savings?

No, you do not. Most Homes for Heroes’ clients do not want to miss out on any of the generous rebates and discounts provided by our affiliates and usually choose to let our affiliates say thank you every step of the way.


What if I am already working with a Realtor?

If you have signed any legal agreements with a Realtor, you cannot lawfully work with a Homes for Heroes Realtor.

However, assuming you have not committed to a mortgage lender, you can still take advantage of the rebates provided by our Homes for Heroes Mortgage Affiliates., you do not.


Are there a lot of extra applications, forms and paperwork?

None. Your name, a way to contact you, and what you do in your community — that is all that we need to know.

How did the program get started?

Formed in 2002, following the tragedy of September 11, 2001, and bolstered by a shared admiration for the “heroes” employed as firefighter, emergency medical technicians and law enforcement officers, a group of Minnesota business owners created an innovative network called Homes for Heroes. This network was established to offer considerable savings to Heroes when they buy or sell a home. Since then, the program has expanded to serve even more workforce heroes: military personnel, educators and educational support staff, clerical professionals, health care professionals, and other every day heroes who provide quality services to their communities.


Are Homes for Heroes Realtors full service?

Yes! We offer full service at a discounted rate.

A full service Realtor provides professional support in every aspect of buying or selling a home. We are able to offer more savings than anyone else because of our strong business relationships – with our Homes for Heroes Affiliates.

Homes for Heroes has strict Affiliate membership requirements to ensure you will be represented by the best of the best. Our Affiliates receive ongoing training to ensure they are current in how to provide you with the best possible service.


This just sounds too good to be true. Why should I trust you?
