Homes for Heroes honors community members, offers discounts

Homes for Heroes is celebrating its 12th year of bringing savings to our nation's heroes. The program was created to honor those who serve our communities every day and ensure a legacy of remembrance for those who lost their lives that tragic day in September of 2011.

The program has the potential to reach hundreds of thousands of Virginians serving all local military personnel, police officers, firefighters, teachers and health care professionals. Local Homes for Heroes representative Kathy Durbin explained: "Our heroes serve our community every day and they deserve more than just recognition. This program thanks them in a meaningful and tangible way, through substantial savings and support during their real estate process, for all of the good they do for our community."

The Homes for Heroes program has grown to become the nation's largest hero savings program with over 1,200 affiliates in 48 states. It is comprised of Realtors, lenders, and other real estate-related providers who are willing to offer substantial savings and discounts to veterans when buying, selling or even refinancing their homes. Nationally, the program has given back well over $5 million to heroes all over the country, a total that continues to grow on a daily basis.

Tony Neilsen, a retired United State Army Veteran said: "Even USAA could not come close to the savings we received from Homes for Heroes.

"We shopped and compared. No extra forms to fill out and no extra paperwork required. I could not have been more pleased."
