"Dawn helped us with our first home, and we've not only called her when we were ready to buy, but shared her information with all our co-workers, family & friends."

My name is Dawn Selix, Broker & Owner of Freedom Realty of Texas, LLC. I have been giving back to local heroes through real estate since 2007. Creating a program without any restrictions after receiving my broker's license in 2011 was just the next step in making it easier to reach more heroes and show our support and acknowledgement of their service!
I've been in the the Bryan/College Station area since high school, graduating from Bryan High and then moving to College Station where I purchased my own home. WIth 2 daughters who love the city life, my dream of owning land and enjoying the country life has been put on hold till they graduate. What I love about Bryan/College Station is that it's always growing and you can still get anywhere in 10 minutes or less, except when the students first get back in town! Even then, traffic is easy and if you want that BIG CITY experience, you're right in the middle of Austin, Dallas & Houston!
Starting my real estate career in leasing in 2005, I learned a lot about our student population. I quickly moved to sales, and still wanted something more than just selling homes. In 2007, I met my first local hero who was on the search for her first home. Being a Bryan Police Officer, she knew what she wanted and the locations she did not want. I offered her a portion of my commission to go towards her closing costs, and that's where my love for giving back to our local heroes began. She's been ever thankful, and has been my inspiration in creating a program that gives back to those that serve.
In 2013 I created the Helping Heroes Home program, where not only do I give the hero a portion of my commission, but I have service providers that offer huge discounts on inspections, surveys, pest control and more throughout the home buying process. We are always looking for more, so if you are or know a service provider you'd like to see on our list, please contact me! In 2013 I also interviewed several lenders, and came across one that fits perfect for the program. Knowledgeable in all types of loans, she also has access to Texas Hero grants. Between that and what I give back, many of our heroes can get into a home with a few thousand dollars!! She has helped many of my clients get their credit prepared for the dream of owning a home. From grants and credit repair, to the knowledge of conventional, VA, and FHA loans, to making sure the client is ready for home ownership, I can trust that she's giving me a pre-approval letter for a client that's truly ready, and I can then do my part of finding them that perfect home! So I say... heroes that serve are heroes that deserve the Helping Heroes Home program! Looking forward to making your dream of home ownership a reality, and a stress free one at that.
"Dawn was patient, understanding, and helpful through the whole buying process. We took our time finding the perfect home, and she was supportative the whole way through."
