With the busy summer housing market getting back on track, there is a new program just launched in the Asheville, NC area.

Homes For Heroes aims to help close the gap between the cost of housing and buyers and sellers in the following groups:
- military personnel,
- police officers,
- first responders, Veterans and others who serve our community and nation.
Hero buyers, start your search here. Hero sellers, start here.
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.
Police Officer and soldier, Katie Blackwell, and spokesperson for Homes For Heroes, returned from serving, along side her husband Steve, in Iraq with the National Guard. Through her efforts in distributing information about the program to fellow soldiers, Homes For Heroes has been able to assist soldiers returning home, matching them to enthusiastic real estate affiliates eager to support our troops by way of great benefits offered by the program. We are ramping up quickly to align with the debriefing and reintegration initiatives at several military bases in anticipation of the large amount of returning troops.
Homes For Heroes has already served thousands of heroes nationwide, including a Police Sergeant who said, “This is not a gimmick. There is no extra paper work or special guidelines or income limits. Homes For Heroes is comprised of full service real estate, mortgage and title company professionals, who have long established reputations. Both the sale and the purchase of my home went off without a hitch. Homes For Heroes saved us nearly $5000.00 at closing. When raising a young family, every penny counts! I would definitely recommend this program to my fellow officers.”
Ruth Johnson is one of the founding members who started Homes For Heroes, Inc. in 2001.
“We all share an admiration for the people who serve our community and our nation selflessly and we wanted to recognize and show our appreciation in a meaningful way, “said Johnson.
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. With the far-reaching power of the Internet, this small-dedicated local effort spiraled into a growing nationwide program.
“What some people do not realize is that when a new service or company creates and activates a website, you immediately have world-wide exposure and you better be prepared for that! We had to promptly scramble to find affiliates in other states to connect with the heroes calling in from all over the country. We are pleasantly surprised with the company’s growth and how our mission has helped so many with homeownership”, said Johnson

" I have been planning a group that gives back to the military for some time, and then I was honored to be asked to represent Homes for Heroes in the Asheville NC area. Teachers, nurses, firemen, police, military and other first responders deserve a break - I am proud to be able to help when they are buying or selling a home”, says Patton.
