Dawn Peterson

Hi, I’m Dawn Peterson and I specialize in helping Law Enforcement and Military members save money buying and selling real estate in Minneapolis-St. Paul and surrounding areas.

I am a local REALTOR® with Keller Williams Preferred Realty and I am affiliated with a national company, Homes for Heroes. I give back to my community heroes and help them save money when they buy or sell a home. Our community heroes, our firefighters, law enforcement, military members, teachers and healthcare workers, sacrifice so much to serve our community by putting others before themselves with very little recognition or thanks. I am a Homes for Heroes affiliate so that these heroes can receive a size-able rewards check as our way to say Thank You!

I personally teamed up with Homes for Heroes as I grew up surrounded by Law Enforcement and currently have close friends on St. Paul and Minneapolis PD. I had several military friends from my younger years living in San Diego, as well as my son's father who was in the Navy. I have witnessed the sacrifices made by those who serve and I am so grateful and appreciative. These heroes are the backbone of our community and I want to do what I can to make the real estate process as smooth as possible for them. Because services deserves it's rewards.

Dawn Peterson, Proud Supporter of Law Enforcement and U.S. Military Members

Hi, I'm Dawn. I am a Homes for Heroes affiliate offering substantial savings, throughout the home buying and selling process, to Law Enforcement, Military members (active, reserve and veteran), Fire Fighters, EMT's, Teachers, Medical Staff. I became a Homes for Heroes affiliate as I grew up around Law Enforcement, married a Navy man and my son, Cooper has wanted to be a Cop and a Marine since he was 2 years old. Our community heroes sacrifice of themselves and their families to serve the needs of the community, and for that, I am eternally grateful.

Thank You for Your Service

Yes, your VA Loan can be used in addition to the Homes for Heroes savings. You don't have to decide between your hard earned VA Loan benefits or the Homes for Heroes savings. You are able to utilize both programs as long as you are eligible for the VA Home Loan benefits and you work with a Homes for Heroes affiliate. Most heroes save at least $2,400 when they buy or sell a home with me. When you add up savings from real estate agents, loan officers, title companies, home inspectors and other every day deals, the savings is far beyond what you would receive from other national programs.

Here's How

For example, did you know that if you are a Firefighter, Law Enforcement, Military (Active, Retired, or Reserves), Teacher, EMT or Healthcare Worker you automatically qualify for the Homes for Heroes program?

Did you know when you purchase a new home with a Homes for Heroes affiliate,     1 - 2 weeks after closing you will receive a check in the mail? These funds are a portion of the affiliate's commission. For example, if you purchase a $250,000 home, your Hero Reward check would be approximately $2,450. There is no minimum or maximum purchase price for the program.

That's not all! Did you know that when you partner with Homes for Heroes Lender, you will save even more money? Affiliate Lenders typically save you an additional $400-500. Don't worry - you don't have to find this lender on your own! I can make the introduction! There are also discounts for the home inspection and title services. I have you covered throughout the transaction. 

Have a home to sell? You are not left out! There are savings and discounts for you too!

What my clients say about me

“Dawn worked with my husband while I was deployed."

"Dawn is amazing to be on your team! Dawn worked with my husband, the rest of the house buying team and me - all while I was deployed. Literally the whole process from start to finish while I was on another continent! She communicated what was needed from each of us without putting the minor details on me. I would recommend Dawn to any friend and family member! ”

What my clients say about me

“She made the home buying process as stress free as possible for us."

"Dawn was an amazing realtor to work with. She was very responsive and answered the numerous questions we had during the home buying process. She made the home buying process as stress free as possible for us. It was a bonus that she was a homes for heroes representative. If you are a first responder (law enforcement, corrections, military) make sure to use her if you can. Dawn was very attentive to our needs and you can tell she has your best interest at heart. I highly recommend her and will use her again in the future.”
