Homes For Heroes

Thanks to the Homes for Heroes program, we saved a ton on our closing costs in addition to community wide discounts on home related expenses. As first-time homebuyers and hundreds of houses on the market, we were in desperate need of some direction. While searching online, we came across the Homes for Heroes program and we were initially hesitant, thinking it was a homebuyer's gimmick. After exploring the website, we filled out the online application and received a phone call within 15 minutes from a local Realtor! We'd like to thank our Realtor, Sue Mravik, and our loan officer, Chris Popp, for explaining the complicated process of purchasing a home and supporting us during all of the steps. We felt they were on our side, looked out for our best interests and were always available. Thanks to this program, we were able to afford our dream home in the Mississippi River Valley.

Homes For Heroes

I highly recommend the Homes for Heroes program, and especially Chris Popp. Chris has helped us refinance our mortgage twice and in the case of the second refinance Chris even contacted me when rates dropped to see if we were interested in refinancing...I don't know a bank that would do that! Chris and his staff are always extremely accomodating and helpful with any questions or concerns. Chris even recommended an insurance agent to us who also offered discounts for law enforcement so we switched and are saving money on our car/homeowners insurance as well. I have recommended Chris to numerous co-workers and friends and would tell anyone who is considering purchasing a home or refinancing their existing mortgage to give Chris a call!

Homes For Heroes

I found Homes For Heroes to be a lifesaver. At a time when I was selling one home and looking to buy another, I was feeling in over my head. A newly single mom of three with multiple jobs and nontraditional hours meant I was burning the candle at all available ends, unsure of what to do first. Homes for Heroes didn't just mean discounts on services I faced throughout the home buying process… The program gave me someone to call with questions, someone who understood what long hours and a demanding schedule meant. Someone who not only accommodated that but took some of the load off my shoulders by scheduling appointments for me and never too busy to answer my many questions. Someone who looked at my financial needs and situation, then proceeded to compile mortgage options and crunch numbers, compare options and find what would work best for my situation. Someone who drove over an hour to my home to make it easier for me to complete necessary paperwork.
When you're giving all you can to others, the reassurance of knowing someone is there for you is not just helpful, it's an overwhelming peace of mind. A surety that your family is in good hands and that your future matters.
Homes For Heroes is an outstanding program, and the people who donate and devote their time to it are, without question, professionals with the highest integrity. They reminded me, we are all stronger when we stand and work together. Thank you for that and for everything along the way.

Homes For Heroes

We were recommended to the Homes or Heroes program through Chris Popp And we couldn't be more satisfied with the outstanding service we received. Mr. Popp and his staff have expert knowledge on financing in the homebuying process and they were there to guide us every step of the way. Chris's knowledge, personal attention and care a lot of for a timely and effective homebuying process in a refinancing option when interest rates dropped a year later. He kept us informed on even the smallest of updates and was always immediately available by phone or email when we had questions or concerns. We know from personal experience that this kind of customer service is not often found when dealing with other companies.

Chris Popp and Imagine Home Lending are a top-tier lending service and, without a doubt, one of the best lending services in the Minnesota and Wisconsin region. We highly recommend the Homes for Heroes program and encourage anyone who is looking to finance or refinance a home to contact Imagine Home Lending.
