COR Residential has created the Homes for Heroes program to save Teachers, Medical Professionals, Military, Firefighters, Police and more thousands when buying or selling a home.
Buford, GA -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/15/2015 -- Spring is the peak of activity in the housing market, and Jeff and Sarah Johnson of COR Residential Real Estate want to spread the word to local heroes about how the Homes for Heroes® program can save them thousands of dollars when buying or selling a home. Since their partnership began with Homes for Heroes in 2014, the agents of COR Residential and their Homes for Heroes partners have saved local heroes in Forsyth County and surrounding areas over $45,000. They have just signed on to the program for the second year, right as home searches hit fever pitch.
Homes for Heroes Atlanta is a network of community-minded companies that provides real rebates and real discounts for firefighters, law enforcement, teachers, healthcare professionals, members of the military and veterans as a way to show gratitude for serving the community and the country.
COR Residential gives 25% of the broker's commission directly back to the hero when they buy, sell, or build a new home. In addition, Clyde Penton, the local Lender Affiliate with Homes for Heroes, significantly discounts the lending fees charged to buyers when they obtain a mortgage, and Dickason Law Group discounts their settlement charges by $250. By combining all of these available discounts, the average hero will save over $5,000 on their real estate transaction.
For Jeff and Sarah Johnson, co-owners of COR Residential Real Estate, the Atlanta Homes for Heroes program is near and dear to their hearts.
A spokesperson for COR Residential explained, "Jeff served on active duty for 10 years as a US Navy pilot, and still continues to fly in the Navy Reserves. Prior to beginning her career in real estate, Sarah was a special education teacher whose mother and sister are registered nurses. For them, Homes for Heroes has a much deeper meaning than just saving people some money. It is so important for us to find ways to recognize and show our gratitude to the real heroes of our community, whose daily sacrifices too often go unnoticed. Jeff and Sarah have loved getting to know our local heroes, and have committed to donating a further $50 from every real estate transaction to the SafeKids Forsyth program, which provides car seats and cribs to local families in need through the Forsyth County Fire Department."
