Semonin Realtors® Builds Our 18th Habitat for Humanity Home

Last week Semonin Realtors® worked to build our 18th Habitat for Humanity home. For the second year in a row, Semonin partnered with NTS in providing funding and volunteers for the construction of the home which was located on Craig Ave near Taylor Boulevard and the Watterson Expressway.

Through various fundraising activities held throughout the year, Semonin Realtors’ staff and agents were able to contribute a total of $35,000 toward construction costs. In addition to these funds, 100 agent and staff volunteers worked on-site October 7th through 9th during the “raise the roof” portion of the build. NTS also made a generous monetary contribution and gathered volunteers to work on the build October 8th.

Bahati, who heard about Habitat through friends, is the owner of the new home and her and her children worked alongside us during the build last week. Bahati and her five children are so excited to move into their new home once Habitat for Humanity of Metro Louisville and its volunteers complete construction in approximately 12 weeks.

Since 1993, Semonin agents and staff have contributed a total of $562,000 toward 18 Habitat for Humanity homes built in Louisville, New Albany, Elizabethtown, and LaGrange.  During this time period, more than 3,500 Semonin agent and staff volunteers have worked together to complete new Habitat homes.

“Semonin agents and staff take great pride in the communities where we live and work, and this is an important way for us to give back every year,” said Brad DeVries, president and CEO, Semonin Realtors.  “This new Habitat home is no exception.  We think homeownership can be for everyone – and it is our distinct pleasure to work alongside NTS and contribute to such a great cause.”

Semonin Realtors and Habitat for Humanity also thanks 2-10 Home Buyers Warranty, Beef O’Brady’s on Blankenbaker Parkway, Texas Roadhouse in Shively, and Semonin Insurance for their support and contributions toward this year’s build.
