"Thank you so much for your help during our first home buying experience! As a military family that moves around frequently, we have not been able to even think about buying a home, until recently. The prospect of shopping for and buying a home always seemed so intimidating to us but Soldier Next Door quickly put our anxieties to rest. James and Marilyn and the rest of their team were incredibly professional, informative, and easy to work with. They put us in contact with a fantastic real estate agent and walked us through every step. The closing cost assistance greatly alleviated our financial burdens, and their knowledge of the VA process was invaluable. We highly recommend this program and will tell our friends in the military about it."

"Bryan was Amazing! I had tried many different paths to get my first home, all leading me down frustrating and disappointing dead ends. By everything changed once I began working with Bryan, I made an offer on the very first place I saw once I was connected with him, and it became my dream home!!! This was mostly due to all the tireless, behind the scenes work in that Bryan and the Soldier Next Door Team did for me. I was very anxious throughout the whole process. Luckily, Bryan’s calm energy and voice of reason kept me sane. He was always available to answer my questions. And patiently took time to explain each step in detail. I felt total trust in him and knew that he had my best interest at heart. Boy did it pay off. Now I’m a first time homeowner and I couldn’t be more thrilled. Thank you, Bryan!"

"We contacted James after learning of the Program. From the moment I first spoke to him I felt that we were in good hands. As a first-time home buyer, the process can be overwhelming, and he broke it down for us and made the pieces seem bearable. He was quick to answer all of our calls and emails in simple to understand language, so I never felt that I didn’t understand what was happening. The process went more smoothly than I ever expected, and I attribute that to James and his team. I would highly recommend working with James and Next Door Programs."
