Congratulations the Diaz Family, on your beautiful new home in Arizona! Evette works in the Tucson area, and was able to take advantage of the Nurse Next Door Grant and other benefits. Thank you for all you do to help our community!  We are happy to be part of your journey. Here's what they had to say about their experience with the program:

House of our Dreams!

When we started this journey we were fearful and nervous but working with Brian made us feel comfortable and secure with this whole process, letting us ask questions not knowing anything, like how it works, the vocabulary, the market, etc. At times when we felt overwhelmed, he was there to remind us of the big picture at the end. Helped us understand everything we had no idea about this business. We will make sure that our friends who plan to buy a house in the future get in contact with Brian so they have the same experience as us. He made everything easier, even though we only spoke a few handful of times on the phone, I wished we would’ve spoken more since he got us the house of our dreams. We appreciate Brian more than whoever reads this understands, get this man a raise and hope that he keeps being recognized for his achievements. Thank you so much Brian!!!!

We were excited to participate in this year’s Hollis Cancer Center Promise Run! The run was organized by Lakeland Regional Health, and had over 1,200 participants, volunteers, and spectators who joined us in the race against cancer!

The Promise Run is inspired by people who believe that a community can come together to conquer cancer. It’s a celebration of the lives of loved ones touched by cancer and a Promise to strengthen the health of everyone around us.

Nurse Next Door® was pleased to sponsor the LRH Weight Loss Clinic Team (Weigh to Go Team), as well as volunteer at the event. What a fun day, for a great cause! Special shout-out to Joshua Farrell, Scottie Kautz, Paige Singletary, Sharon Parks, and all the other participants and volunteers in this year’s event!

One of the frequently asked questions we receive is, "Who Qualifies for the Nurse Next Door® Program?" The Nurse Next Door®  Program was designed to increase home ownership among nurses and healthcare workers, 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.)  

Nurse Next Door®  currently has grants and down payment assistance available for ALL healthcare employees.  The above list is just an example of those who qualifies. You may purchase ANY home on the market through Nurse 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.

Next Door Programs®  is the largest National Home Buying program in the United States, and is the administrator of the Nurse Next Door®  Program. For a full list of programs available, CLICK HERE.

All of us at Nurse Next Door® were excited to partner with the non-profit, Show Me Your Stethoscope, to adopt a number of families with special needs children for Christmas. This year it was our pleasure to provide the tree and decorations, Christmas dinner, and presents, for these hard working and deserving families. We would like send a special thank you to the team at SMYS, including Alley Staffier, Anthony Cosenza, and Jennifer Lombardi Story! Also, a big shout out to Next Door Programs' own James Hadley, Steve Parks, Nichole Wade and Jordan Garcia!

American Dream!

Nurse Next Door Realtor: Tony Phillips
Nurse Next Door Loan Officer: Sean Baker

"The American dream is to own your own home, and I'm so thankful to Sean and his team for helping make this a reality for me!  They made the process smooth and simple for me, were always available and responsive if I had any questions, and were able to work with the unique challenges of my situation.  10/10 would recommend to anyone!"

Excellent Advice!

Nurse Next Door Realtor: Sherri Purcell
Nurse Next Door Loan Officer: Brian Cohrt

"We bought our first home with the help of Brian Cohrt and his team.  Brian was extremely knowledgeable and helpful.  He answered all our questions, fought to get us the absolute best rates, and provided us with exemplary service every step of the way.  He gave us excellent advice when we weren't sure what to do, and worked closely with us to be sure this experience was smooth, easy and happy.  Without his help, I don't know if we would have ended up in such a perfect place for us.  They found us the best Realtor in Sherri Purcell, and communicated with us and the whole team.  From our first conversation, to closing was less than 50 days.  It happened so quickly solely because our whole team, from Sherri and Brian to Jason and Ashley, were dedicated to seeing us end up where we wanted to be.  We will forever be grateful to them for all their help!"

Super Responsive!

Nurse Next Door Realtor: Joseph Babeaux
Nurse Next Door Loan Officer: Samantha Wallacer

"Sam did a really great job closing my loan on time and fairly seamless.  She was super responsive and provided me with weekly progress updates, but touched base every few days.  Extremely personable and goes above and beyond for her clients.  Would highly recommend working with her!"
