Empire is pleased to introduce our Hometown Heroes Program in Charlotte, which honors the brave men and women who work tirelessly to make our communities safer. Through the Empire Hometown Heroes Program, active everyday heroes like our police officers, firefighters and active military, reservists and veterans will receive a $1,000 credit that can be used as a discount off the base price of a new Empire home or a discount towards closing costs.

“To the people who put their lives on the line and help to keep our neighborhoods and communities safe, Empire is honored to offer first responders a token of our gratitude by making it a little easier to move into one of our new homes.  It’s our small way of saying thank you for all your efforts and contributions towards making our world a safer place,” says Gil Shea, Regional President, North Carolina.

With a strong corporate commitment to creating livable and safe communities wherever we build, it seemed only fitting we show our support and gratitude to those who have dedicated their lives to the same cause. Through the Empire Heroes Program, homebuyers can choose the home that’s right for them from any one of our Charlotte communities.
