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!"

One of the frequently asked questions we receive is, "Do I qualify?"  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 teacherspolicefireman 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 qualify.  You may purchase ANY home on the market through Teacher 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.

Teacher Next Door is the administrator of several programs, including Nurse Next Door.  For a full list of programs available, CLICK HERE.
