Bonny Cocking Discusses Her Experience with Patton Property Group

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 Homes for Heroes buyers Bruce and Bonny Cocking, by giving back 25% of their commission.

“My husband heard about Rowena Patton on the radio through the Glen Beck program and thought she would be the perfect fit for us,” said Bonny Cocking. “We loved working with Patton Property Group. Rowena was fantastic. When she came to our home and realized we were selling our home because our businesses were struggling, she was really open to suggestions on how to help our businesses succeed. We also heard from Nadine regularly and she was great to work with. They did a lot of advertising all over the place which was really helpful.”
“Rowena offers Homes for Heroes, which is a program where you have to do something for the community, such as a firefighter, teacher, etc. Since we qualified for that, we are going to save a lot of money! I would definitely recommend Patton Property Group to my friends. Rowena did an amazing job of advertising our home and we even got people from France and Italy that were looking at out home. Patton Property Group put a lot of effort into selling our home.”

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.

    As a buyer’s agent for the Patton Property Group, I am always inspired to work our first responders and help them find a wonderful home for their families. My brother and his family live in New Jersey and needless to say, the police, fireman, national guard and the Red Cross were there selflessly to protect and serve those families devastated by hurricane Sandy.
