Homes for Heroes
The Homes for Heroes program launch had been on my to do list for ever as something I would “get to”.
In September 2018 during a life changing crisis in my home town I was compelled to give back at a larger level.
Seeing our firefighters risk their lives and our police officers spring into action without second guessing their safety moved me to do what I can. See the video below. The streets, people and neighborhoods affected are my people. My team members, my friends, my clients, my loved ones. The neighborhoods hit hardest are the same ones that I rode my bike through as a little one. They are the same streets that my sons learned to ride their bikes on. This experience reminded me how very, very lucky we are.

I help people find their dream home and I find the perfect buyer for the home they have when they are selling. I negotiate, I don’t save lives like Nurses & Doctors or EMS workers do. I am far from a hero, I can’t fight in a war to protect our country. I wouldn’t know the first thing about rushing into a burning building to save people, I certainly couldn’t walk into a classroom and teach our kids the way teachers do.
What I can do is give back, support the people who do. This is my little way of doing what I am good at in a meaningful way that changes people’s lives.
