Ruth Johnson is CEO of Homes for Heroes, a privately held, family-owned company that was created after 9/11 to support those who serve our country. It has built a network of more than 3,500 real estate professionals who have given back more than $65 million to 38,000-plus heroes.
Homes for Heroes provides assistance to healthcare workers, police officers and firefighters. "Before, now and always, Homes for Heroes has been thanking and rewarding heroes, and this year, we feel our mission is more important than ever," says Johnson, who reinvested in the business and increased its headcount, despite the challenges of the coronavirus pandemic.
Johnson has been active in the real estate industry for more than 40 years as a REALTOR®, manager and owner of a successful real estate franchise. She considers Homes for Heroes the most rewarding of her accomplishments.
