Homease Heroes was founded to serve the individuals of our community who work hard every day to serve us. As the cost of living in the Austin-area increases, access to affordable housing for our Heroes becomes more challenging. We are dedicated to helping bridge this gap.
Homease Heroes is a community program based in Austin, Texas that serves our local heroes in Austin and the surrounding areas to assist them with purchasing, selling, leasing, and refinancing properties. By working with dedicated Realtor Partners as well as an extensive network of lenders, inspectors, and other home service providers we are able to offer extensive discounts and savings to our Homease Heroes clients to help them save money every step along the way in their home buying or selling journey. Our average Homease Hero customer receives over $1,500 in cash savings during their transaction with us! (This number is based on a $250,000 sales price and savings may vary depending on which lenders and other service providers the client chooses to work with).
Homease Heroes serves an array of local Heroes including teachers, teaching assistants, principals and vice principals, firefighters, EMS/paramedics, law enforcement, all ranks of active military, veterans, nurses, doctors, and some other healthcare professionals. See a full list of who we serve under our 'Who We Serve' tab above.
Our program was founded by a local real estate broker in Austin who decided it was time to help bridge the gap between the increasing cost of home prices/real estate in the Austin area and access to homeownership opportunities for the individuals who dedicate their lives and careers to serving us. We will strive to continue improving our program and services with regard to the wants and needs of our local Heroes. Thank you for your service! We look forward to serving YOU!
Homease Heroes core mission and values are service-based. We constantly strive towards professionalism, integrity, and offering our clients the same level of service that we would offer to our own family, friends, and our loved ones. This is why Homease Heroes works with the most trusted and dedicated Realtor Partners who have demonstrated care, knowledge, and diligence time and time again in the clients they have worked with. Our Realtor Partners are knowledgable, experienced, and committed to serving you and your needs as our local Hero. We are honored to introduce them to you below!
Upon contacting Homease Heroes, we will first learn a little bit about you and what your real estate needs are.

If you have a preference for working with a specific Realtor Partner, please let us know.
