Home at last!

Teacher Next Door Realtor: Charlotte Johnson
Teacher Next Door Loan Officer: Jose Palomar

"My husband and I raised 5 children and went through some rough financial times. We thought we would never be homeowners again but Jose and his team helped make it possible! We are so grateful for all the hard work they put in to help us overcome a lot. We are home at last."

Easier than becoming a teacher
Officer Next Door Realtor: Kelly Urso
Officer Next Door Loan Officer: Jason Villalobos

"Teacher Next Door made home ownership possible! The process was explained every step of the way. The lender was extremely professional. I was referred to a real estate agent who was familiar with the Teacher Next Door program, and upon closing received 20% of agents commission towards closing cost!"

" When I applied for this program Albie was very quick at contacting me and walking me through the process. Then we were assigned our amazing realtor, Cheri.

People’s Mortgage got us pre-approved very quickly, even with a not so perfect credit history. Thank you to all for helping us to find and purchase our forever dream home.

Godsend

Teacher Next Door Realtor: Lacy Wilson
Teacher Next Door Loan Officer: David Butcher

"When I reflect upon my experience with your services, I deem it a Godsend. From the very beginning, I was so satisfied with how you pre-qualified me for a home, found me a great Realtor, and quickly accommodated me when I requested approval for a larger loan than originally desired. You and my Realtor were so patient, for I did take 3 or 4 months to find the home that I wanted. I live in an area with a limited market for my price range. It took a while, but I found the right home and was so fortunate when the owner accepted my offer. My accepted offer was approximately 25k below the appraised value. It all came together. Lacy Wilson was so helpful with me and patient when it came to filling out and explaining all the necessary information needed to complete the purchase of my home. 
?I do highly recommend your program and services to anyone seeking to purchase a home. Thank you for helping me move on with my life and securing a wonderful home."
Shane Walter
Oroville, CA

Patiently walked my through every step

Teacher Next Door Realtor: Jesse Mason
Teacher Next Door Loan Officer: James Ward

"I have been a teacher for 18 years and have wanted to buy a house for a long time.  I contacted the Teacher Next Door program this past Spring and James Ward was assigned to be my Loan Officer.   I knew absolutely nothing about the home buying process, but James patiently walked me through every step, right up to closing.  I would highly recommend James Ward to anyone who wants to be a homeowner.  The process can be long, frustrating and sometimes scary, that is why it was great to have James there to help me.  I learned many things about buying a home because of James Ward who is very detailed in his explanations of everything.  Thanks to James Ward and the TND program, I was able to buy my first home."

In my own home!

Teacher Next Door Realtor: Derek Venema
Teacher Next Door Loan Officer: Sheff Brisbin

"My Teacher Next Door Team (Sheff, April, and everyone else :) ) made it possible for me to purchase my first home. They were with me every step of the way and were always available to answer my questions no matter what they were. The home buying process can be overwhelming but Sheff and his team made sure that I was an informed buyer. One of my biggest hurdles before finding out about this program was saving enough for a traditional down payment. The discounts provided and loan options I was given made it possible for me to achieve home ownership. I would recommend this program to all of my co-workers."
Jennifer Davidson
New Port Ritchie, FL

Basem was great!

Teacher Next Door Realtor: 
Teacher Next Door Loan Officer: Basem Jaber

"I divorced at 50 with two teenage daughters. I wanted to buy my own home rather than throw money away renting. I found Teacher Next Door online and thought that grants for teachers sounded pretty good to me. Basem talked me through the entire process. He was very patient and always responded quickly when I had questions. I recommend Teacher Next Door to all teachers!"
Wendi B.

Excellent services all around!

Teacher Next Door Realtor: Javin Lopez
Teacher Next Door Loan Officer: Danielle O'Neill

"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 to 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. Bit 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 ."
