“I honestly thought I’d have to give up my dream of owning my own home, but Danielle proved me wrong. My credit wasn’t the greatest, but she worked with me and made it happen anyway. I am beyond grateful to her and her team (especially) Sarah for working so hard to make this dream come true for me and my family. Not only did they help me secure a fair interest rate and down payment, they introduced to us to the best realtor around who helped us into a home in 2 months! I would absolutely recommend this program to any teacher whose dreamed of owning their own house.”
"I would definitely recommend Teacher / Firefighter Next Door for our co-workers and friends. We found the perfect home for us just in time for the school year to begin. We were able to close quickly and the grant money definitely helped us get into our home without spending more than we could afford!"
