About Me

When I was first told about Heroes Housing, I immediately needed to know more. When I started my real estate career one of my main goals was to give back with each closing. I would choose 3 different charities to give to after each closing; Veteran’s, Cancer, and suicide/mental health awareness charities were my focus. Once I heard more about Heroes Housing I knew I wanted to get involved.

Coming from a family of Veterans – My dad served in Vietnam as a gunner on a helicopter with the Navy Seawolves; a Helicopter Attack Squadron that was an all-volunteer squadron to support Naval Special Warfare operations. My grandparents and uncles also served in various wars with the Army and Navy.

My little brother is a Firefighter for BLM and lost one of his best friends while fighting a fire. He travels to many different fires throughout the western United States. It’s tough on him, his wife, and his two kids when he leaves, but he truly loves being of service to others the way our dad was.

On November 29, 2021, I was seconds from dying but the Doctors and Nurses in the emergency room were simply amazing and saved my life. After a few days in the ICU, I was able to go home to my family and continue the recovery process.

These are just a few of my many reasons for wanting to be involved with Heroes Housing. Being able to be of service and give back to all the great Veterans, Firemen and women, Policemen and women, Doctors, Nurses, and Teachers is a true blessing and something I look forward to.


My whole career is about helping people accomplish their goals. Buying a home is about more than just a house, it’s about your needs and finding the place that makes you excited to come home after a long day. 

I worked in architecture for 28 years and was at the forefront of creating beautiful and functional buildings, but now I find my passion in working with people to help make real estate buying, selling, and investing a seamless experience. I’ve always had an entrepreneurial spirit, and even owned my own Architecture business at one point, so working hard to get the job done comes natural to me. Additionally, I worked as a project manager for several large clients and created communication systems that allow me to really cater to my client’s needs while staying in contact with all other parties involved. This is incredibly important because realtors wear many hats during the duration of the buying or selling process; task management and communication are vital for realtors in such a fast-paced market. However, the most important part for my clients to know is that I will be in constant contact to update you along the way so you’re never left in the dark about where we are in the process!

Here’s a bit about me; family is the most important part of my life. My wife and I got married in 2010, I have two wonderful children and two dogs. I love just about anything that includes my family, but two of my favorite activities are getting donuts with my kids before school and helping coach my son’s football and basketball teams. Aside from my family, I am a huge sports fan. The Pittsburgh Steelers are my favorite team and my goal is to hit every stadium to see them play!

Chad Humphrey started his career in the mortgage industry in 1998. He has seen many market shifts and many program changes. In today’s challenging market it is more important than ever to choose the right mortgage broker to partner with, someone with years of experience. My #1 business pillar is Client Experience. I hope to raise the collective bar in the industry to provide a white-glove experience for the consumer. I believe when you define your “Why” the “How” will naturally follow. I believe our Heroes believe this and that is what drives them to do what they do every day. While everyone runs out the door, they are the ones running in. I have the same passion for helping others and Heroes Housing was a natural “how” to my “why”.
