Jacksonville, FL Realtor Gives Over $41,000 of Commissions Back to Local Heroes
CC Underwood, owner of The Sellin' With CC Team is an affiliate with the Homes For Heroes program which is a national organization that gives back to local heroes when they buy and sell a home. She and her team give 25% of their gross commission as a rebate to the buyer and seller at closing. Qualifying heroes include Active and Retired Military, Law Enforcement, Firefighters, Teachers, Healthcare professionals.
Homes for Heroes is a national program that started after the events of 9-11. The program has realtor and lender affiliates that give discounts to heroes when they are buying and selling a home. CC Underwood has been an affiliate since 2013 and every hero that buys and sells a home with her team receives a rebate of 25% of the gross commission. “I was excited to see just how much we were able to give back this past year.” For a buyer this means that 25% of the commission goes towards their closing costs. For a home seller this means more profit. There is no cap on the rebate amount, no cap on the purchase price, and no cap on the number of times used.
“It’s our way to give back to the heroes who give to us everyday.” CC Underwood and the Sellin’ With CC Team have a goal to give $100,000 back to heroes in 2015 and have partnered with Bank of England to help home buyers to increase the rebates given. “The program is spread by word of mouth so it’s important that every hero knows it’s available.”
CC Underwood has spoken in front of small groups to raise awareness about the program. She has also appeared on local talk shows such as Look Local and First Coast Living. “I need to talk to HR directors or the person in charge of benefits for all of these hero categories to make sure this program is being used to the fullest.”

She currently has built her team to include four home buyer specialists, a marketing coordinator, an Office manager, and customer care support. Underwood is solely responsible for home sellers.
