Q: How did this program get started?

A: Homes for Heroes was formed in 2002. Following the tragedy of September 11, 2001, and bolstered by a shared admiration for the “Heroes” who selflessly serve their communities, a group of Minnesota real estate-related business owners created the innovative network that we now know as Homes for Heroes.

Q: What if I am already working with an agent?

A: If you have signed any legal agreements with a Realtor, unfortunately, by law, you cannot work with a Homes for Heroes Realtor. However, if you have not committed to a mortgage lender, you can still take advantage of the rebates provided by our Homes for Heroes Mortgage Affiliates. To sign up and save, click here.
