In the early morning hours of December 18, 2015, then Indian River County Sheriff Deputy Chris Lester was shot in the line of duty by a convicted criminal trying to escape arrest. Today, the Law Enforcement Officer, now a Detective, and his wife are the first recipients of Dale Sorensen Real Estate’s Heroes on the MovE (HOME) program.
Dale Sorensen Real Estate (DSRE) created Heroes On the MovE in order to reward local heroes by giving them a credit or cash rebate when they buy or sell a home. It’s also a way for DSRE to show First Responders, Active Military and Veterans, and Education Professionals appreciation for what they do and the sacrifices they make every day. The program also gives a contribution to local organizations that support those same heroes.
“My wife and I are thrilled to be able to take advantage of this program from Dale Sorensen Real Estate,” said Detective Chris Lester. “We’re selling a house and purchasing another so we will actually be able to take advantage of this program twice. It means so much to us that they not only appreciate what we do, but that they honor us this way. I also really like the fact they will be donating to another organization that supports first responders. This isn’t the first time we’ve used Dale Sorensen Real Estate and it won’t be the last. They are truly a great community partner and a friend of first responders.”
“This is by far one of the most important programs we as a company offer,” said Dale Sorensen, Jr. Managing Partner for DSRE. “These individuals are the ones that put their lives on the line protecting us, they run into burning buildings when others are running out, and they help mold the minds of our youngest citizens. There is no way we can ever thank them enough but we all hope this will show them how much we value what they do each and every day for the rest of us.”
The rebate is calculated at 25% of the commission received by DSRE in connection with its representation of the hero in the transaction. For example, a $200,000 sale or purchase would equal a $1,500.00 rebate (up to a maximum of $5,000). There are no costs or fees to the hero. In addition, 2.5% of the gross commission will be donated by DSRE to local hero-related organizations. To be eligible, participants must register with DSRE’s HOME program before contacting a DSRE real estate agent.
