About Me

I Know Louisville

I love Louisville! I was born and raised in “Derby City,” and I’ve been “moving families and building friendships” for over two decades.

I know how to thoroughly research comparable sales for my Seller clients and price their homes to sell.  Right pricing is an art as well as a science, and it’s absolutely crucial, especially in today’s market.  I’ll always negotiate the best possible price and terms for you.

With a degree in Marketing and Communications from Spalding University in Louisville, I know what it takes to make your home STAND OUT in a crowd.  I use the very best in technology to showcase my listings to potential buyers.

I love writing about two of my passions:  real estate, and the many reasons Lousville is an incredible place to live!   I do hope you’ll visit my blog often, and think of it as your resource for all things Louisville as well as a helpful resource for real estate tips, statistics, and more.
