A Special Homebuyers Program Honoring Police Officers, First Responders, & Military

Sheri and Thomas Taflinger – married police officers with their children

There are so many special men and women who serve our country and our community as police officers, firefighters, emergency medical technicians, and military, active duty and veterans. It takes a special person to put their own lives in danger to protect and serve other human beings. I feel especially close to this because I have several family members who are police officers and military veterans. Here I’d like to put a spotlight on my beautiful niece, Sheri Taflinger.

Fearlessly Breaking Stereotypes

Many people have a stereotype of what a police officer looks like. My niece Sheri, breaks that stereotype. Not only is she a 16 year veteran of the Honolulu Police Department, she’s also a former Mrs. Hawaii, an incredible mom, talented hula dancer, and co-director of a preliminary pageant to Miss Hawaii. I call her Wonder Woman; she amazes me every day.

Her two children, a boy and a girl, are genius smart and she’s married to another outstanding police officer, Thomas Taflinger, who’s currently a Lieutenant. But what impresses me most about Sheri is that she’s incredibly brave, and utterly fearless. She cares and is passionate about helping people in our community, and it shows in her heart and her chosen profession. She worked in patrol for fifteen years and said she loved interacting with people in the community. Currently she’s a training officer at the HPD Training Academy showing new trainees the ropes and sharing her valuable experience as a patrol officer.

Sheri is an inspiring example of a police officer making a difference in the lives of people in our community, and there are so many more. That’s why I’m so excited to share information about a special homebuyer’s program that is a real benefit to the military and is also offered to all first responders like my niece Sheri.

A Special Homebuyers Program for Police Officers, all First Responders and the Military

This program is called “MOM” or Military on the Move. Don’t be fooled by the title — it started off as a benefit honoring our military and it expanded to include all first responders, including police officers, firefighters, and emergency medical technicians.

MOM is a national homebuyers program that started with Leading Real Estate Companies of the World (also known as Leading RE). Leading Real Estate Companies® of the World is a global, by-invitation network of market-leading independent real estate companies with a proven track record of delivering outstanding service to their clients. I’m pleased to say my brokerage, Hawaii Life, is an affiliate of “Leading RE.” We are also the only brokerage offering the MOM home buyers program in Hawaii. When you register for MOM online, you will have the opportunity to be served by a highly experienced Realtor who will guide you through the home buying process. In addition to having expert help by top realtors, you’ll receive credits to help you with defraying closing costs based on the sales price of the home your purchasing. In Hawaii that could be anywhere from $1,500 to $4,000 or more in actual savings to you!
