ASHEVILLE, N.C. / June 14, 2017 – WEICHERT, REALTORS® – Unlimited is proud to announce that Aaron Kraft, the company’s managing broker and a U.S. military veteran, has been named a certified Homes for Heroes representative for Haywood County. Homes for Heroes is a national organization that affiliates with real estate-related service providers to offer substantial rebates and discounts to heroes serving our country and its communities.
“We are committed to giving back, serving and saying ‘thank you’ to our local community heroes because they do so much to make our great community what it is today,” said Kraft, who served in the United States Marine Corps. “These heroes tirelessly serve and sacrifice for us that we feel it’s just the right thing to do and we’re excited to be able to give back in such a meaningful and positive way.”
REALTORS affiliated with Homes for Heroes donate a portion of their commissions to the buyers. The majority of the donated commission goes directly to the buyer in the form of a discount or rebate. The remaining funds goes toward the Homes for Heroes Foundation, a nonprofit that provides financial assistance and housing resources for military personnel (active, reserves and veterans), as well as law-enforcement, firefighters, healthcare workers, EMS and teachers.
Inspired by the tragic events of 9/11, Homes for Heroes was started Minneapolis, Minn. at the beginning of 2002. It has since grown to become a national organization that has helped over 14,500 heroes and given back over $22,000,000.
