Born and raised in Akron Ohio, Jonathan Kraft moved to Cleveland, Tennessee in 1999 to pursue a career in music at Lee University. In 2001 he met his beautiful wife Jenna and they were married in the spring of 2002. After Lee, Jonathan then began acquiring the skills that would later make him a successful Realtor.
Jonathan started working in the warehouse at a local fireplace and grill store. Before long he was promoted to the front of the store where he would greet customers and help them until a sales person was available. Soon after, people started to want to deal with Jonathan directly and he was promoted to sales. Jonathan would trade back and forth with the owner of the company for #1 in sales and became one of a handful of people in the southeast to pass his certification test for the National Fireplace Institute (NFI).
After nearly 6 years, Jonathan realized that Sales was what he loved to do, but with two young boys he needed something that would allow him to make his family more of a priority. With that in mind he accepted an offer at Pella Windows and Doors. He quickly became one of the top Pella representatives in Eastern Tennessee and the #1 Pella Windows representative in the Greater Chattanooga area. One of the main things that contributed to his success was a large number of repeat customers and referrals. "There is nothing more satisfying that knowing that people trust me so much that they tell their friends and family about me.", Jonathan says about his referrals. "For me it is more about building a relationship than selling a product. People come to me with a problem and I am able to provide them with a solution they can feel good about."
After over a decade of experience in industries related to homes (Fireplaces, Grills, Outdoor Kitchens, Doors, and Windows), Jonathan began inquiring about actually selling homes. He became a licensed Realtor in the state of Tennessee and decided to work with Crye-Leike Realtors in Cleveland, Tennessee. When asked why he wanted to become a Realtor Jonathan said, "It was just a natural progression. I love working with people, I have a lot of experience with various aspects of the home, and there is nothing I would love more than to help people find the perfect house to call home."
Jonathan is very involved with his community. He is a member of The Net Church in East Ridge, Tennesee where he has serves on the Pastor's Council and plays bass every Sunday. He is also involved as an ambassador at the Caring Place. The Caring Place provides an opportunity to minister to those who are poor and in crisis through services that help meet their basic needs. It is an opportunity to show love, as we were directed in 1 John 3:18 “let’s not merely say that we love each other; let us show the truth by our actions.” Click here for more information on the Caring Place and how you can get involved.
If you are looking for a Realtor who will listen to you and put your needs first give Jonathan a call. It's not just about a sign in the yard, it's about trust and friendship.
