Patton Property Group Closes First Homes for Heroes Buyer
Air Force Veteran receives 25 percent ($1,365.00) of real estate commission through Asheville’s Patton Property Group at Keller Williams
ASHEVILLE, NC – DECEMBER 1, 2011 — Homes for Heroes, a national organization which assists military personnel, law enforcement officers, firefighters, health care workers and educators save money on real estate expenses signed their first buyer on November 29 in Asheville, NC. Lisa Marie Pilz, an Air Force veteran, is the first Homes for Heroes recipient in the Asheville community.
Homes for Heroes announced their exclusive partnership in Asheville, NC with Patton Property Group at Keller Williams in September 2011. Formed in 2002 to recognize community heroes after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, this partnership assists the Asheville hero community as they buy and sell homes.
“We are very thankful that we were able to successfully support a military veteran in the purchase of her home. It is one thing to say “I want to give back” but seeing the first big check going out, certainly made an impact on how much more I would like to work with this program,” said Patton Property Group’s listing director Nadine Maltz. “I am looking forward to helping many more Heroes buy and sell homes through this program.” Maltz’ teammate, Gwen Bowers is Patton Property Group’s Buyer Specialist Broker working with Pilz, both seen in the pictures attached.
Homes for Heroes is celebrating its ninth year of bringing big savings to everyday heroes. This collaboration of real estate professionals’ sole purpose is to offer savings when buying or selling a home. 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 and this small-dedicated local effort rapidly spiraled into a growing nationwide program.
Patton Property Group at Keller Williams is Homes For Heroes exclusive representative in the mountains and offers 25 percent off real estate commissions for heroes, buying or selling property.
Homes For Heroes aims to help close the gap between the cost of housing and buyers and sellers in the following groups: military personnel, police officers, firefighters, nurses, doctors, surgeons, teachers, first responders, Veterans and others who serve our community and nation.
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.”
Police Officer and Soldier Katie Blackwell, who is also a spokesperson for Homes For Heroes, returned from serving, alongside her husband Steve, in Iraq with the National Guard. Through her efforts in distributing information about the program to fellow soldiers, Homes for Heroes has been able to assist soldiers returning home, matching them to enthusiastic real estate affiliates eager to support our troops by way of great benefits offered by the program. We are ramping up quickly to align with the debriefing and reintegration initiatives at several military bases in anticipation of the large amount of returning troops.
