Veterinarian and First Responder Receives 25 percent of Real Estate Commission
Homes for Heroes is a national organization which assists military personnel, law enforcement officers, firefighters, health care workers and educators save money on real estate expenses. Homes For Heroes Mountain representative, Patton Property Group, helped another Homes for Heroes buyer on April 19th, Lewis Dodds, by giving back 25% of their commission.
“This program is a great way to say thank you and give back to people who are active in the community,” said Dodds. “We were able to get a significant amount of cash towards our closing costs.”
“Working with the Dodd’s was a wonderful experience and we had a great time looking at houses,” said Jane Risberg, Buyer Specialist Broker. “I think Homes for Heroes is fabulous. It’s great to be able to give back to people who serve in our 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.
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 offers 25 percent off real estate commissions for heroes, buying or selling property.
