Homes for Heroes is the largest nationwide network of affiliate real estate agents, lenders and local businesses providing easy ways for heroes to save significant money when buying, selling or refinancing a home; or when making every day home-related purchases.

The total amount you save will depend on the final sold or purchase price of your home. Homes for Heroes affiliate Realtors® agree to give a % of their gross commission as a Hero Reward. When you Buy a Home you will receive a check from Homes for Heroes in the mail shortly after closing. When you Sell a Home you will receive a reduced real estate commission rate at closing. Local business affiliates too often provide additional hero discounts. Discounted fees on purchases and refinances can also be obtained when using a Lender affiliated with the Homes for Heroes program. The savings as you can imagine can be thousands of dollars. We can certainly review and go over the savings with you.
No, you do not need to use "all" of the affiliates, but it is required that you use a Homes for Heroes affiliated Realtor® in order to receive Homes for Heroes savings. Most heroes do not want to miss out on any savings, so they choose to use as many of the local affiliates as possible to maximize their Hero Rewards.The rebates and savings offered through the Homes for Heroes program come directly from the Realtor® and Lender affiliates of which whom must meet high standards and criteria of the program just to be chosen.
If you are currently represented by a real estate agent or lender, it is not our intent for you to break that agreement but unfortunately for this transaction anyway, you would not qualify as only our affiliate agents and lenders can offer the rewards.
