Who We Are

Thanks4Giving is a network of Realtors, lenders, attorneys, and home inspection agents that felt compelled to do something to give back to those that protect, serve, and care for our local community. Particularly, they sought to give back to members of the military, law enforcement officers, firefighters, nonprofit personnel, and teachers by providing them with a program to help make it easier for them and their families to buy a home.

Our team of professionals have been hand-selected based on their respective participation in community service. We’re all very much community-conscious, and we understand the value that so many individuals offer to our local community. Together, we believe that we can combine our professionals’ services to provide a “thank you” offering to those who deserve so much recognition for their work in our community.
