How did the 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.  This 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.
