Record Observer - - Real Estate -

STEVENSVILLE — In­spired by the tragic events of 9/11, Homes for He­roes was started in Min­neapo­lis, MN, at the begin­ning of 2002. In 2009 it grew to be­come a na­tional or­ga­ni­za­tion that has since helped more than 14,500 he­roes and given back over $22,000,000.

Homes for He­roes’ mis­sion is to pro­vide ex­tra­or­di­nary sav­ings to he­roes who pro­vide ex­tra­or­di­nary ser­vices to our na­tion and its com­mu­ni­ties ev­ery day. He­roes in­clude: fire­fight­ers, law en­force­ment, mil­i­tary (ac­tive, re­serves and vet­er­ans), health care work­ers, EMS and teach­ers.

Homes for He­roes is com­prised of af­fil­i­ate real es­tate and lend­ing spe­cial­ists across the coun­try along with lo­cal and na­tional busi­nesses com­mit­ted to pro­vid­ing Hero Re­wards, which are easy ways for he­roes to save sig­nif­i­cant money on a home; and when they make ev­ery day home-re­lated pur­chases. When work­ing with Homes for He­roes real es­tate and lend­ing spe­cial­ists specif­i­cally, he­roes are able to re­ceive sig­nif­i­cant sav­ings when they buy, sell or re­fi­nance a home.

“We’re com­mit­ted to giv­ing back, serv­ing and say­ing thank you to our lo­cal com­mu­nity he­roes be­cause they do so much to make our great com­mu­nity what it is to­day. They tire­lessly serve and sac­ri­fice for us that we feel it’s just the right thing to do and we’re ex­cited to be able to give back and say ‘Thank You’ in such a mean­ing­ful and pos­i­tive way,” said Pe­tra Quinn, lo­cal Homes for He­roes real es­tate spe­cial­ist in Stevensville.

Ev­ery time a hero uses Homes for He­roes for their real es­tate trans­ac­tions, they are help­ing he­roes in need. A por­tion of Homes for He­roes’ earn­ings is do­nated to the Homes for He­roes Foun­da­tion, a non­profit 501(c)(3) that pro­vides as­sis­tance to he­roes in need.
