Teacher Next Door Blog



First off, this program is truly amazing. My wife and I loved the idea of owning our home, but because we live in the Boston area, the possibility felt out of reach. We also found we needed to move because our new landlord was suddenly raising the rent. But when we found the Teacher Next Door program owning our own home ACTUALLY seemed plausible! What is more, the help and support we received, from the loan officer James Ward of Bank of England & Real Estate agent Jesse Mason of Colby Hunter Realty which the program supplied, was first-class, responsive, and very helpful every step of the way. And even though the process can feel overwhelming, at least for first-time homebuyers like us, James & Jesse were ever-patient with us and they were always willing to help guide us, answer questions, and explain things clearly when we felt confused. We now own our first home(!!!) and are so grateful for this unique home buying program and all the help it provided. Thank you “Teacher Next Door”!

"We contacted James after learning of the Teacher Next Door program. From the moment I first spoke to him I felt that we were in good hands. As a first-time home buyer the process can be overwhelming, and he broke it down for us and made the pieces seem bearable. He was quick to answer all of our calls and emails in simple to understand language, so I never felt that I didn’t understand what was happening. The process went more smoothly than I ever expected, and I attribute that to James and his team. I would highly recommend working with James and Teacher Next Door."

"Words cannot do James and the Teacher Next Door Program justice! James was the most accommodating, helpful person I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. He was professional, knowledgeable and overall amazing to work with. He made an extremely anxiety provoking process way less daunting. He was there whenever we needed a question answered or something explained, despite the three-hour time difference. I can’t thank James enough for helping us get into our dream home! The dogs thank you too!"
Samantha Lloyd,

Congratulations to the Lloyd Family!  We wish you many years of happy memories in your new home.

Thanks Samantha, for the kind words and for sharing your photos.  The dogs look right at home already.

“James and the Teacher Next Door program recently made my dream of home ownership come true! He could not have made the process any easier from explaining the loan options, setting me up with an amazing Realtor, making sure I knew exactly what each home would cost before I viewed them, to arranging for the closing and talking me through the process. He answered a ton of questions with a calm kindness and seemed to always be available no matter the day or time. This is a wonderful program for teachers! I would not have a home today if it was not for James and his team! Don’t wait to call them, they will help change your life.” Krissy Vilagie, Brocton, MA

With us every step of the way!


"We wanted to give a shout out to Cheri Aumond-McLean for helping us find our dream home here in Tampa, FL. She was with us every step of the way (and I definitely appreciated her quick responses to ALL of my questions). She gets stuff done! Without this program, we would have been at a loss during the whole process. We appreciate the team (Cheri, Jose, Albie, and everyone else behind the scenes) that came together to guide us - we're at a loss of words for how thankful we are!"

Wonderful Program!

"Teacher Next Door is a wonderful program! I am so glad I heard about this program, was able to get the information I needed to apply.  Mike Jones was my cheerleader, go-to-for-answers guy, very supportive, and extremely patient with my seemingly endless barrage of questions. Cheri McLean was the best Realtor anyone could have! She was available for showings, questions, and a warm smile and friendly support in my search for a home. The entire team was helpful and willing to explain each process. I am so grateful for all they do! Thank you for helping me!"
