BISMARCK, N.D. - Homes for Heroes helps local heroes get help on their real estate transactions. One realtor in Bismarck says she works to give back to those leaders with the help of the Homes for Heroes organization.
If you're a teacher, first responder, in the military or a healthcare professional, you might want to ask your realtor if they're involved in Homes for Heroes.
Doris Boepple is retired from the military and just purchased a new home with her husband, Glen.
"It helps defray costs it gives a little extra back, so if there's anything they need to buy for the house they have a little extra cash to be able to do that right away," said Glen Boepple.
Doris says her realtor, Beth Posey, of Re/Max Capital told her about the organization.
"It just kind of warms my heart that they help us out with any expenses that we do have that come up. The sale of a home, both purchases and buying, it's an expensive feat," said Doris Boepple.
Beth Posey says she wanted to bring Homes for Heroes to Bismarck after working with many service members, and wanting to help them as much as she could.
"There are people out there that do take care of military, well the her program and its not just military it's police and any service members that serve our community," said Doris.
The Boepple's say they would have never known the program existed if it weren't for their realtor.
"She has always been there whenever we had a question or was on top of everything, throughout the process so it was very good working with her," said Glen Boepple.
The Boepple's say the recognition for their service is appreciated. Doris says she want to give back to the other service members in the community by sharing their story.
