“No matter what life gives you, give more back.”
Editor Note: Law Enforcement Today is proud to be partnered with Honor The Brave. We’ve had countless stories come in from emergency responders and veterans about the experience working with Jeff and Zanna, and it’s an honor to support the endeavors of a former police officer and his incredible wife (who we’re convinced is the brains in the family).
These are words we choose to live by.
2018 was an amazing ride, as our first full year offering our Honor The Brave program nationwide.
It’s hard to put into words what it means to us to make a small difference with what we do every day. From the amazing clients we get thank for their service, to our Honor The Brave partners’ giving hearts, and the ripple effect we get to create donating to so many charities that make a difference in the lives of the brave men and women who serve and protect our country and communities, our hearts are full.
When we reflect on the journey has brought us to this chapter in our lives, there have been highs and there have been lows. Crazy as it may seem, we are most grateful for our lowest moments. It’s those moments that taught us the most about who we are, what matters, what doesn’t matter, what we stand for, and in those hard moments we discovered our greatest strengths.
One of those strengths is resilience, we have been knocked down, and we will mostly be knocked down again, but we will always stand back up. Honor The Brave was born as a result of standing back up after being knocked down. We are committed to staying connected to those who serve our country and communities by creating an experience of appreciation, giving back, and generating a positive ripple effect through charity donations. Together we all make a difference.
Honor The Brave is so much more than a real estate resource that offers Brave Benefits. It’s a family.
We are growing this amazing family everyday. In a time when there is so much negativity every where you turn, it’s truly refreshing to get to be a light in all of that darkness.
The light for us, is first and foremost, getting to serve those who serve, it is also getting to partner with amazing realtors who share our passion for giving back to those who sacrifice the most, and last but not least donating to and learning about all the truly incredible organizations striving to make a difference in the lives out our Law Enforcement, Military, Firefighters and all First Responders. There really is so much good happening all around us, we are grateful to be enlightened to that and help others to be enlightened as well.
We have so very much to be thankful for along the way, it’s not possible to share it all so we will just pick a few…
One moment that comes to mind is getting a FaceTime from our Honor The Brave partner at a closing with our amazing client who just received his hand made wooden American flag. He’s a big, burly, tough Marine who was all choked up. It was an unforgettable moment I will always cherish.
Getting to send Brave Benefits and Charity Checks out! Woohoo!!!
Meeting amazing new friends, whether it’s clients we get to serve, realtors, lenders, or business owners that share our values we get to partner with, or leaders of awesome charities making a difference for our military and first responders, we are in awe of the greatness we get to be surrounded by.
Impacting lives by sharing our story. This is a big one for us. Having the darkness we have been through and overcome help someone else facing similar challenges gives us purpose. We always say, HTB is more than real estate. We mean it! We have been together nearly 25 years, married 19, been trough peaks and valleys life inevitably presents. Reach out if you need an ear, most likely one or both of us will relate. Our contact information is easily accessible on our website.
Being a resource and connector. Because of what we get to do and who we get to interact with everyday we are able to be a resource for those we serve. We might not have the answers for everything but we might be able to connect you with some who does. We love connecting great people with great people.
Continuing to find our crazy! If you have seen Zanna’s Facebook live interviews you know what this means. If not, tune in and you will see. It’s more important to share the messages than being afraid of imperfection!
Last but not least we are very thankful for Cody Romriell for his service to our country as a Marine and for building our beautiful wooden flags.
We look forward to all the year has to bring. It’s not just what we do, but why we do it that matters. May we thank many more of our BRAVE men and women and create a greater ripple effect this year!
Cheers to the Brave,
Jeff and Zanna Wolfgang
