“Sgt. Amy McDonald and her husband, Scott, have both given so much in their service to our country,” says Kris Farmer, CMO at Veterans United Home Loans. “At Veterans United, we strive each and every day to help veterans and service members achieve the American Dream of homeownership. We are incredibly excited to partner with realtor.com in making the McDonald’s dream home become a reality for this deserving military family.”
