A Word From Peggy S.

“Adam was an outstanding realtor for me! I met him through the Homes for Heroes program, and I’m so grateful that I did. I was a first-time buyer, and pretty nervous about the whole process, and Adam was extremely thorough, patient and kind about explaining things every step of the way, and then re-explaining them whenever I started feeling a little overwhelmed. He was always available, responding very quickly to any calls or emails, and carefully answered any questions throughout the process. When we were looking at houses, he was very helpful in asking questions and pointing out details that I wouldn’t have known about. I always felt like he had my best interests in mind. When we found the house, he expertly guided us through the negotiations and gave us excellent contacts for the other professionals needed. And learning from Adam about the Homes for Heroes program really saved me some money! As a teacher, I didn’t have to do any extra work or preparation to participate in it, and I got a check sent directly back to me a few weeks after closing. I’m very appreciative to have been able to take advantage of Homes for Heroes, and I would highly recommend Adam Shamus to anybody buying or selling a home.”

A Word From Burt and Natalia.

“Adam was a great partner and guide, and he helped us land a home that we love. He took the time to get to know us, always responded to our questions promptly and honestly, and helped us make sense of the entire home-buying process. From our first meeting all the way to closing, we felt that Adam was in our corner and would advocate for our best interests. We highly recommend him to anyone looking to purchase a home in Newton. We initially chose Adam as a realtor because of his participation in the Homes for Heroes program. It proved to be a fantastic decision. We saved money on closing costs, and ended up using the refund we received from the program to help pay for renovations. All educators should look into the benefits of this wonderful program.”

A Word From Beth & Gary M.

My husband and I decided to start looking for homes about a year ago in the metro- west Massachusetts area. Adam Shamus at Keller Williams Realty had been recommended to us by a friend who had used him as a realtor previously. We could not be happier with the level of commitment Adam has shown us throughout the year. Adam has gone above and beyond to meet us at many different houses until we found our home this past January! Knowing I am a special education teacher in the public schools of Massachusetts, Adam taught us about the homes for heroes opportunity. As a teacher I am often using my own personal money to buy supplies for the children I work with, which can mean money is tight at certain times. Being part of Homes for Heroes has allowed us to save some money. The process is extremely easy and Homes for Heroes helped put some money back in our families bank after our home was purchased! This is a phenomenal program that we are proud and appreciative to be a part of. We highly recommend both Adam Shamus at Keller Williams Realty and being part of the Homes for Heroes program.

Dear valued business associates, clients, family members and friends:

I recently became an affiliate Real Estate specialist with a national program called Homes for Heroes®. Homes for Heroes was established shortly following the tragic events of 9/11 as a way to give back and say “Thank You” to our nation’s heroes.

When heroes work with Homes for Heroes affiliate real estate specialists and local businesses, they receive Hero Rewards® which are easy ways for firefighters, law enforcement, military (active, reserves and veterans), healthcare workers, EMS and teachers to save significant money when buying, selling or refinancing a home; or when making every day home-related purchases.


  • BUY A HOME and receive a check from Homes for Heroes in the mail.
  • SELL A HOME and receive reduced real estate service fees at closing.
  • MORTGAGE or REFINANCE and receive reduced lending fees.
  • LOCAL BUSINESS AFFILIATES also provide special hero discounts.

The Circle of Giving
Every time a hero uses Homes for Heroes, they help other heroes in need. A portion of Homes for Heroes’ earnings is donated to the Homes for Heroes Foundation, a non-profit 501(c)(3) that provides assistance to heroes in need.

Why am I telling you this?
Because this program is available everywhere in the United States, and you may be a hero or you may know a hero that would benefit from this program.

For your convenience, I’ve attached some frequently asked questions.

To sign up, or for more information about Homes for Heroes (or the Foundation), please visit or contact me at 617-852-3170 or email

Thank you for your time, and for helping to say “Thank You” to each and every community hero. Because Service Deserves Its Rewards®!


– Adam
