Today I’m excited to tell you about the Homes for Heroes program, which is now available in Central Pennsylvania through the Joy Daniels Real Estate Group. To help me explain this great news I’m joined by George Kunzweiler, an affiliate with the program. So, what is Homes for Heroes? Shortly after 9/11, the program was established to give back and thank local heroes for all they do. Homes for Heroes provides Hero Rewards, which help to make it easier for heroes to save when buying or selling homes. The jobs of our local heroes is to help others, and Homes for Heroes wants to show them that same kindness. Homes for Heroes has the goal of giving back much-deserved help to those who spend so much time giving help themselves. When a hero buys, sells, or refinances a home, it helps the program to help even more heroes. It is the mission of the program to assist heroes like firefighters, law enforcement, military, healthcare and EMS workers, and teachers. All of these people qualify to receive Hero Rewards. So, what are Hero Rewards? Actually, they’re the savings that the program is able to provide to local heroes who work with Homes for Heroes. When a hero buys a home, they receive a check directly from the program. When they sell a home, they receive reduced real estate service fees. Also, when they refinance, they receive reduced lending fees.

Qualifying for these rewards is easy. People who fall under the list of heroes I mentioned earlier just need to register at

Homes for Heroes Incorporated works closely with the Homes for Heroes Foundation, which is a charitable non-profit with the goal of helping heroes in need. Every time a hero buys or sells a home with this program, a portion of the proceeds goes towards the foundation. 

The foundation awards grants to local non-profits nominated by Homes for Heroes affiliates. Since 2009, the foundation has awarded $400,000 toward helping heroes. 

The Hero Rewards vary between every transaction, so the easiest way to determine what you qualify for is by using the estimation tool on the website.
