The Missouri Teacher Home Loan Program
The  Missouri Teachers Home Loan Program is a real estate home loan reward savings program for Teachers and Educators when they buy or refinance a home in Missouri.  The Missouri Teachers Home Loan Program can be referred to as a mortgage program for heroes.

INTRODUCING the Buyer Accepted Program for Teachers and Educators! Become a CASH HOME BUYER and win the house you want! (see details below)

Why Teachers and Educators Specifically? My sister works in the Ft. Zumwalt School District, my Aunt in the Francis Howell School District. My best friend from the old neighborhood is a teacher in Troy. Many of my High School and College Friends went on to be Educators. I have many family, friends, and clients who are in Education throughout Missouri and Illinois and I have found there is a need for this program.

When my children were in school I was fortunate enough to help one of their teachers, then another, and then their friends and family who were teachers, I worked with them ALL as if they were family. My children have grown into amazing people that came from the work we as parents provided them, but also through their experiences with the many wonderful educators they had year to year to year.

As I have helped many of our family, friends, and acquaintances in education with their home loans I decided it was time that ALL TEACHERS should receive the same special mortgage program that I have been providing to friends and family for years!  

The Teachers Home Loan Program is an individually designed mortgage and home buying plan to provide teachers, educators, and those involved in education with more and better options that are not or can not be offered by other lenders. The goal of program is to provide money saving options at closing and throughout the life of your home loan.

Most Teacher/Education mortgage programs provide a one size fits all offer/benefit as though you and your home buying situation are not unique. Every home buyer and what they need or want whey they are shopping for a new home are unique.

The Missouri Teacher Home Loan Program is an individually designed home buying program intended to optimize your savings and provide a mortgage built for you.

"Of all the hard jobs around, one of the hardest is being a good teacher."







Even with lunch time trips to the dollar store for supplies, peer drama, bullying, learning disabilities, parents and administrators, you still figure out how to give more to your students. Just as we rely on the patience, knowledge and virtue of pre-K, K-12 and post-secondary teachers like you to educate the students, you can rely on us to give back to you and your family when you need a place to call home. 

"On The Job, You Serve Others. Now It's Our Turn To Serve You."
