ELK GROVE, Calif. – October 13, 2014 – Police officers, firefighters, members of the military and teachers are the everyday heroes in our community, but far too often they can’t afford to live in the cities they service. Now, two Elk Grove REALTORS® are hoping to help change that.

Lisa Colridge and Mindy Watkins, agents with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage’s Elk Grove office, have joined the Homes for Heroes program, which offers discounts and rebates to these hometown heroes when it comes time to buy or sell a home.

Now in its 12th year, the national Homes for Heroes program is a partnership with REALTORS®, mortgage lenders, title companies and other real estate service providers who agree to offer big discounts to those who serve and protect their communities and the country.

Colridge and Watkins are official affiliates of the program and will take a reduced commission when working with community members who qualify. The savings on the average home in Elk Grove and the greater Sacramento area can add up to thousands of dollars.

“Between real estate brokerage discounts and other rebates from industry service providers, these savings can really add up and make the difference between getting into a home or not for many people in our community,” Colridge said.”

“We’re excited to be able to give something back to those who have done so much for us,” Watkins added. “We hope that this will be the helping hand that many of our local heroes need to achieve the American dream of homeownership.”
