?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."

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!"

Congratulations to the Thomas Family of Clearwater, FL, on your lovely new home!

Special thanks to Teacher Next Door Realtor Cheri Aumond-McLean and Loan Officer Sheff Brisbin for making it happen.





     "When we began thinking about buying a house we were nervous. We didn’t really know the process. We are beyond thrilled that we found Teacher Next Door! Sheff was amazing at answering all of our financial questions and Cheri Aumond-McLean made sure we knew what was happening and what was coming every step of the way. What an amazing team and we are so thankful that they helped us make our dream of home ownership come true!"

This week, Teacher Next Door, the nation’s largest home buying program for teachers, held a three-day, down payment assistance summit in Tempe, Arizona, aimed at increasing the amount of assistance provided to teachers.

“Our focus this week was expanding our national matrix to be more inclusive and offer larger assistance amounts and benefit more program participants,” said Steve Parks, Teacher Next Door National Director.  “We now have over 30 different down payment assistance programs nationwide, that can be used in conjunction with our closing cost grant.”

Teacher Next Door already helps teachers in all 50 states navigate the home buying process, provides closing cost grants and arranges down payment assistance for qualified applicants.  Now, by increasing the number of programs they utilize and dialing in the specific requirement of each plan, they have no less than three potential down payment assistance sources for any area.  The down payment assistance programs include Georgia Dream, Home in Five Advantage, Home Plus, Chenoa and Unison, just to name a few.

“Despite rising home prices, I feel teachers and other service professionals should be able to live wherever they want, not just in certain neighborhoods.  Between our grants and the down payment assistance programs we utilize, teachers and their families enjoy far more buying power when they go to choose their next home,” Parks continued.  Through the Teacher Next Door program, you may purchase any home on the market.

This is not the first time Teacher Next Door has demonstrated their desire to help and strengthen communities.  In 2015 the program was expanded to include law enforcement officers, firefighters, EMT’s and nurses.
