Leaders from the business community last week gathered to officially kick off a local Homes for Heroes program.
The program was born in the wake of 9/11 and aims to help soldiers, veterans, firefighters and police officers. The program now also covers teachers and EMT and other health care professionals.
The program provides discounts when buying, selling or refinancing a home. Participants save 25 percent of the gross commission paid to the real estate company, as well as discounts on lending fees, home inspection fees and closing fees.
