Honoring Heroes in Memphis and Beyond
The Karlton Govan Lending Team is thankful for every single client, and for the privilege of helping families of all kinds in Memphis and the Mid-South find their place to call home. We are especially grateful for the opportunity to help by giving back to the heroes in our community and helping them find the perfect place to come home to after their selfless service.
We are proud partners of Homes for Heroes, an organization that helps make buying a home easier for firefighters and EMTs, Law Enforcement, Military service members, healthcare professionals and EMS, and teachers. These members of our community are so important to our health, safety, and future, and they deserve all of our gratitude.
About Homes For Heroes
Homes for Heroes was first established in 2002 in the wake of 9/11, as a way to honor the first responders, healthcare professionals and military personal who were working harder than ever to keep us safe in an uncertain time. Over the next few years, the company expanded and began partnering with real estate agents and mortgage lenders like The Karlton Govan Lending Team in Memphis to serve heroes all over the country.
So far, Home for Heroes has helped over 32,000 heroes save over $53 million on real estate transactions since 2009. Homes for Heroes, Inc. is the largest nationwide network of affiliate real estate, mortgage, and local business specialists who are committed to providing easy ways for heroes to save on a home.
When heroes work with both an affiliated real estate agents and mortgage brokers, they save, on average, $2,400. Many save even more. Heroes save $700 for every $100,000 they spend on a home, as well as an estimated $500 in lender fees.
Homes for Heroes Foundation
In an additional effort to serve even more community heroes, Homes for Heroes donates a portion of its profits to the Homes for Heroes Foundation. Every time a hero buys or sells a home through the Homes For Heroes program, they’re helping other heroes in need.
The Homes for Heroes Foundation offers grants to local non-profits that serve first responders, military service members, healthcare professionals, and teachers in local communities all over the country. The Karlton Govan Lending Team is proud to be a part of the circle of giving, and the important work of strengthening local communities in Memphis by building each other up.

The Karlton Govan Lending Team is committed to using our time and resources wisely to make sure that the communities we live and work in are flourishing, and the heroes among us know that we appreciate their selfless efforts. This holiday season, take a moment to thank the Heroes you encounter.
