Homes for Heroes was formed in 2002, following the tragic events of 9/11, by a group of Minnesota business owners. The Homes for Heroes network was established to offer considerable savings to firefighters and public safety officers when they buy or sell a home. These savings include, but are not limited to, reduced realtor commissions for sellers, and realtor rebates and/or discounted lender fees for buyers.
Since 2002, this network has expanded to serve even more workforce heroes and includes: military personnel, educators and educational support staff, health care professionals, and other every day heroes who provide quality services to our communities.
There are no extra applications, forms or paperwork that need to be filled out. To sign up to receive these benefits, fill out my Homes For Heroes registration form and I will contact you by phone within a very short period of time to get the process started. Again, there are:

On one last note, here is just one of many testimonials from my satisfied Heroes:
“Monica Foster . . . This name, this person; I will never forget. She went beyond the call of duty. We bought our house and loved it; planned to really make this house a home. Then life happened, as it does. My husband was called back to active duty service in the army. We had to move. We needed to sell.
I called RE/MAX and we listed our house for sale with an agent who ended up leaving the company in December. I was sure we would lose the house. Then RE/MAX reassigned our listing to Monica. We had a mortgage AND rent to pay plus student loans and car notes. My husband’s pay was wrong. There was not enough money for the bills. My husband was in Iraq, fighting for his country and trying to get the pay fixed on the homefront. Money was extremely short. Monica convinced the mortgage company to give us a short sale.
She advertised our home, kept watch over it, personally fixed the fence when it had blown down twice. She spent hours and hours on the phone with clients, agents, the mortgage company, and the title company. Two contracts had fallen through because the buyer’s grew impatient with my mortgage company. Each time she would encourage me, and somehow convinced the mortgage company to give us more time. The entire process took 11 months, 7 of which were with Monica. Because Monica is a team player and went beyond the call of duty, we sold our home! She made the ends meet; saw it through closing. She stuck by us when the road was dirty, muddy, rocky, and rough. She conquered the mountain and SOLD our house. Monica did not have to do all this, but she did.
I would be proud to call her a soldier. She fought when many would not. She made time for us in her extremely busy schedule. She did not make much when our house sold, but that did not change her work ethic. She is priceless. It is an honor to say Monica Foster sold my home! There are many ways to be a hero. Some fight for our freedom, some serve to save lives, and some rescue those whom life tramples on. Monica Foster is a hero. I am proud to say that if she would put heart and soul into selling our home; I know she will do the same for you!” – Sarah Abell
