Homes for Heroes ® ~ What is the Homes for Heroes program? Frequently Asked Questions.


What is this program about?

Homes for Heroes® provides real savings and rewards for heroes who work every day to make our communities safer and better places to live. Homes for Heroes is a network of real estate professionals who are prepared to give real savings to those who serve their communities, when they buy, sell or refinance a home. This program is our way to say Thank You!


Who qualifies as a hero?

Our core group of heroes are military (active and retired), police officers, firefighters, educators and healthcare workers. If you think you might qualify tell us what you do for your community. When you are buying, selling or refinancing a home, let us say thank you for all you do!

tableHow much will I save with a Homes for Heroes® Realtor®?

The total amount you save will depend on the final selling or buying price of your home. Homes for Heroes affiliate Realtors® agree to a rebate equal to 25% of the gross commission they receive on your transaction.  An agent is typically paid a commission of between 2% – 3% of the purchase/selling price of the home.  Assuming, your agent receives the full 3% commission, here is an example of what your savings could look like (left).

How much will I save with Broadview Mortgage?

Most lenders in the Homes for Heroes Network provide discounted lender fees on purchases and refinances. Broadview Mortgage has established a program that covers the cost of your Home Valuation (Appraisal), and up to $1,475. in credit towards lender closing costs for disabled veterans.  That is nearly $2,000. in additional savings* on your new mortgage.

Are there other benefits to using Broadview Mortgage?

Yes. Broadview Mortgage specializes in the California State Down Payment Assistance Programs, Grants, Tax Savings Certificates, and local County and City Assistance programs.  When you combine the benefits of a Home for Heroes® real estate professional with Broadview Mortgage, you get the most comprehensive savings and benefits package available. And this is our way of saying, Thanks!

Do I have to use all of your affiliates to receive the savings?

The rebates and savings offered through the Homes for Heroes program come directly from our Realtor® and lender affiliates. You can take advantage of either the lending discounts, the Realtor rebates or both!

Are there a lot of extra applications, forms and paperwork?

    • No extra forms
    • No red tape
    • No fine print

How did this program get started?

Formed shortly following the tragic events of September 11, 2001, and bolstered by a shared admiration for the “heroes” employed as firefighters, emergency medical technicians and law enforcement officers, a group of Minnesota business owners created this innovative network of real estate professionals called Homes for Heroes. Is network was established to offer considerable savings to heroes when they buy, sell or refinance a home. Since then, the program has expanded to military (past & present), educators and healthcare professionals.
