Nurse Next Door Realtor: Kelly Urso
Nurse Next Door Loan Officer: Ricardo Manza

"Mr. Manzo and his team were phenomenal. I am nearly one year into living in my new home, and I continue to share my experience with friends, colleagues, and families. Since the process was my first home purchase, I depended on Mr. Manzo for every step. He would explain every detail to me, he would take the time to answer every single question I had. He would call me first thing in the morning and stay after hours when we were on the phone in the evenings. He made sure I had all my questions answered. Another member of Mr. Manzo's team was Jason Bastian. Mr. Bastian helped me with the details of paperwork and was also very patient with me. He helped me in every phase. I am so thankful that God blessed me with Mr. Manzo and his team. My experience was better than I could have expected. The process of home buying was emotional and having Mr. Manzo helped so much. Thank you.

Congratulations to Toyonna of Flint, Michigan on your lovely new home!  We would like to wish you and your family many happy new memories.  Thank you for all you do in your community.  It was our pleasure to serve you.

Grants and down payment assistance is available for teachers, school employees and other public service professionals.

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.

First Time Home-Owner!

My whole experience was very positive. Jose was quick to respond to any questions I had and helped me understand every step in the process. As a first-time homeowner I was extremely glad that I got to work with the Teacher Next Door Program.

Dream Come True!

Sean, Thank you so much for working with all the teams and making my dream come true to buy my own home. The whole process would not have occurred without you running interference and running with the ball. You are great and thank you again for all you did and it was a great pleasure working with you. Best regards

Samantha was fantastic throughout the whole process. She was extremely knowledgeable and helpful, and remained in constant contact with me throughout., including evenings and weekends. I am certainly going to recommend her to anyone that I come across who is in the market for a mortgage. She and Danielle are the absolute best.

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!"
