“We can never thank you enough! You have been so amazing through this process from answering all our questions, to giving us reassurances that we can do this! You NEVER let us down, you were always there, even at 10PM, calling me back to walk me through documents, to listening to my meltdowns. You made this process a breeze, and it was nice to have someone always in our corner!” 

Many Thanks and Blessings!

Always,

The McWherter Family

?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."

He was very patient and always responded quickly when I had questions. I recommend Teacher Next Door to all teachers!"

Boston Teacher Next Door Review

Congratulations to new first time home owners Molly O'Neill and Ethan Hoyt of Boston, MA!  

Here's what they had to say about the Teacher Next Door First Time Buyer's program:

I am writing to review our experience buying our first home through the Teacher Next
Door Program.  My partner, Ethan Hoyt, and I had never purchased a home. Because of this, there were a lot of logistics and financing information that we needed to learn. Our loan officer, James Ward, and our realtor, Jesse Mason were extremely patient and helpful with answering all of our questions. Before James, Jesse and Teacher Next Door, we had a loan officer and a real estate agent that were not helpful with educating us on everything we needed to know before making such a large investment. As a result, that first purchase ended up falling through.

The second time around, we so appreciated the expertise of James and Jesse. They both worked tirelessly, often times during non business hours, to ensure that everything would be done in a timely manner. As a result, in July of 2018, we closed on our first home! We are so grateful to begin this new chapter of our lives. We are so grateful to James and Jesse for making this dream come true.

Thanks again,
Molly O'Neil and Ethan Hoyt

Amazing to work with!

Teacher Next Door Realtor: Mary Brittany Wiggs
Teacher Next Door Loan Officer: Rahmun Aung Khin

"Rahmun contacted us after applying for the Teacher Next Door Program. He was so amazing to work with and so patient with us as we are first time home buyers and had many questions. He is always working to do what is best for us and was honest and reassuring every step of the way. I will be recommending him to all of the teachers I know who are looking to purchase or refinance. Thank you Rahmun!
