CONGRATS to Nurse Courtney on her new home!! Through the Nurse Next Door Program, we helped Courtney utilize an amazing down payment program available in California and her total out of pocket cost was about $5,000 less than originally estimated.  Huge win for her!! Big shout out to Nurse Next Door Preferred Agent Ernie Sayson and NND Program Specialist Rahmun Aung Khin for their incredible work to make this happen!!

"Danny and Jake have been a true blessing. They made the process simple and worked with me every step of the way and we’re always available to assist if questions arose. Both also were quick to respond and strategize as problems arose. Another thing is they walked me through the entire process."

One of the frequently asked questions we receive is, "Do I qualify?"  The Teacher Next Door Program was designed to increase home ownership among teachers, support community development and increase access to affordable housing, free from discrimination.  It was also designed to be much more inclusive and impose far fewer restrictions, than HUD's Good Neighbor Next Door Program. (Which only includes classroom teachers, police, fireman and EMT's.)   

Teacher Next Door currently has grants and down payment assistance available for ALL school employees.  The above list is just an example of those who qualify.  You may purchase ANY home on the market through Teacher Next Door, not just HUD homes.

In order to see how much you qualify for, simply click apply now and complete the short pre-application.  Your personal financial information is not collected on the pre-app and there is no credit check.

Teacher Next Door is also the administrator of several other programs, including Nurse Next Door.  For a full list of programs available, CLICK HERE.

Amazing Experience!

"Working with Samantha was such an amazing Experience!  As a first-time home buyer, saying I was a bit lost was an understatement.  Sam was extremely clear, so I knew exactly what to expect before anything happened.  She made sure I felt comfortable at every point.  Her communication skills were top-notch throughout the entire process.  I could not be happier with my choice.  Samantha killed it!"

Above Expectations!

"Brian went above my expectations.  He dealt with all my questions...and I had a lot.  He walked be through the process of buying a home, gave advice, was knowledgeable, patient and helped me even when it was past "business hours" to get things accomplished.  Danielle was also a God send.  I'm so grateful!  I actually have a home now thanks to this team!  Thank you from the bottom of my heart!"

American Dream!

"The American dream is to own your own home and I'm so thankful to Sean and his Team for helping make this a reality for me!  They made the process smooth and simple.  They were always available and responsive if I had any questions and were able to work with the unique challenges of my situation.  10/10 would recommend to anyone!
