What is Homes for Heroes? Homes for Heroes is a community minded company whose purpose is to provide real rebates and real discounts for heroes who are buying or selling a home. The program started shortly following the tragic events of 09/11/2001, by a group of Realtors in Minnesota. They were looking for a way to honor those who serve our nation and its communities. The founders were all in the business of real estate so used that experience as their discount platform. They quickly discovered that providing these discounts was not only good for their hearts but also great for their business. The word began to spread and Homes for Heroes soon became the Nation’s Largest Hero Savings Program. Today, Homes for Heroes has more than 600 affiliates in 43 states. Who qualifies as a Hero? Our workforce heroes include but are not limited to military personnel (both active duty and retired), teachers, firefighters, law enforcement, doctors and nurses. How does this work in Oregon? Oregon is currently a non-rebate state so Homes for Heroes affiliates agree to give up to 25% of their gross commission to the charity of the hero’s choice. (or a gift certificate directly to the Hero) Our heroes are always proud to be able to deliver a check to their favorite charity, however. Heroes save an average of $2595 per loan when they close it with Travis Newton of ENG Lending. How can a Hero get registered for the program? You can also call Travis Newton, the Oregon Homes for Hero affiliate directly at 503.931.4490. It is just that simple, no red tape, no additional paperwork. Just a real Thank You for real Heroes. Just need proof they have an affiliation to one of the Hero professions listed.
