Country living, not much can beat that, especially in and around Louisville with our rolling hills, blue grass, and picturesque sunsets. Imagine coming home from work to a quiet walk in the woods, to 6.33 acres to explore with the kiddos, and 4,215 sq. ft. of home to relax in. Well 5010 Routt Rd is just such a home in real estate Louisville.


This magnificent 4 bedroom 3.5 bathroom home is luxury real estate Louisville at its best. The first thing you see looking at this home is the inviting front porch. One can imagine sitting out there sipping hot chocolate in the cool Fall months or lemonade in Spring and Summer.


While the formal dining room, eat in kitchen with breakfast bar are more than worth mentioning. The 2-story great room with fireplace, built-in bookcase, and a wall of windows will immediately capture your attention as you walk through the front door.


But just as you are having your breath taken away you’ll notice the amazing master suite also situated on the first floor. It includes a sitting area, Florida room, leading to the back porch, en-suite bathroom with his and hers vanity, a whirlpool tub, shower, toilet, and a walk-in closet.

The lot has an open grassed yard, a large wooded area, and a 768 Sq. Ft. out-building that is a great work space able to hold lots of yard equipment. The home also has an attached 3 car-garage which leads into the kitchen. If you are interested or have any questions please contact Scott Boehnlein at Family Realty.


Family Realty At SBTS Preview Day

Family Realty had the pleasure of attending the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary Preview Day. Our goal was to meet prospective students relocating themselves and their families to Louisville and help them in any way we can. 

Knowing that relocating to a new city can be difficult we see the continual need for offering support to singles and families making this transition every semester. When you move to a new city it is hard to know who to trust, what areas are good for families, and what areas are good to invest in. You have lots of questions which we hope to provide answers too. Even if it is, "Where is a good dentist or doctor?"

We are also aware many students move to the seminary expecting to be here for only a couple years so they rent. Or they choose to rent for convenience and uncertainty of the market or areas. However many go on to find they will be in Louisville for a longer than they initially thought and so there housing needs change.

We hope to offer continual help, information, and peace of mind to prospective and current students. We had a great time at the SBTS Preview Day and were hosted with excellence. If you need any information or have any questions about Real Estate Louisville please contact Scott Boehnlein or one of our other agents at Family Realty.


Selling Your House When You Have a Dog: 4 Tips for Homeowners

Your pet is a cherished member of the family. He spends his days lounging indoors, cuddles up on the sofa with you, and greets your visitors with gusto. But no matter how much you love your four-legged friend’s personality, prospective home buyers might not feel the same. Make sure your dog doesn’t hurt your home-selling efforts by following these helpful tips.

1. Remove All Signs of Your Dog

As a dog owner, you may hardly notice the little signs of your pet’s presence. Whether it’s a little pet hair on the sofa, a toy left in a corner, or scratches on hardwood floors, these things become a fact of life when you have a dog. However, prospective buyers will likely notice the little details you overlook. And for people who associate indoor pets with uncleanliness, the sale may not recover.

 As you stage your home, pay special attention to pet-related damage, messes, and clutter. On top of repairing pet damage, you should clean pet waste out of the yard, remove pet hair from furniture, and stash all toys, food dishes, pet beds, and other signs of your pet’s presence before each showing.

2. Eliminate Pet Odors

People who don’t own dogs always seem to know when a home contains one. Keep unpleasant pet odors from sabotaging your home sale by having rugs and furniture professionally cleaned and laundering your linens and curtains. If an odor is strong and enzyme cleaners won’t remove it, you may need to replace the soiled item entirely.

When a showing is scheduled, make an extra effort to make your home smell fresh, but avoid relying on chemical air fresheners that could irritate sensitive individuals. Instead, opt for clean, simple scents like orange, jasmine, or cedar, and use them judiciously.

3. Keep Your Dog Away During Showings

Having a pet in the home makes showings more complicated. Since visitors want to see every part of your home, shutting the dog in a spare room or the backyard isn’t an option. If your dog is a barker, he could disrupt the showing. And no matter how well-behaved your dog is, letting him roam free simply isn’t an option. People could have allergies or be afraid of dogs, and people wandering in and out create opportunities for your pet to escape.

Instead of compromising the sale of your home, make arrangements for your dog to be elsewhere during showings. If it’s a quick viewing and you have the spare time, a long walk around the neighborhood could keep your pup out of the realtor’s hair for long enough. You can take the opportunity to check out local dog-friendly businesses like Molly Malones for a bite to eat, Iroquois Park or the Louisville Riverwalk to stretch your legs, or The Comfy Cow to grab a frozen treat for you and your pup. However, if you have a long day of house showings, sending your pooch to doggy daycare is a better choice.

4. Board Your Dog During the Move

Keeping your dog out of the house on moving day isn’t just for the movers’ sake — although they’ll certainly appreciate not being barked at or tripping over a dog. Boarding your dog or hiring a pet sitter during the busiest part of the move also spares him the stress of seeing you pack up your home and ensures he isn’t let outside unsupervised. Another perk? When your professional movers can navigate your home freely, they’ll get the job done faster so you can enjoy a lower moving bill.

You may put dog ownership squarely in the “pro” column, but not everyone sees it the same way. In fact, some people believe a dog’s very presence reduces a home’s value. Help buyers see your home’s true value by keeping your pet out of the picture during the selling process.

SOLD! Two Houses!

Someone just found an amazing home! Well two people did. Actually it was more like two sets of people found an amazing home each. And we loved walking with them every step of the way. There is something special about helping families find homes. A home is one of the biggest financial and even emotional invesments of life, so we take our role seriously.

The first home we sold was one we had listed. 18741 Willington Cir is a beautiful 5 bedroom, 4.5 bathroom, 5000 Sq Ft home. This home was amazing for entertaining with a beautiful great room that flowed effortlessly into a formal dining room and open eat-in kitchen. The kitchen opened out onto a delightful covered porch which will be perfect to relax on for this time of the year.

The fully finished basement in this home is incredible.

The basment also included a multi-level seating indoor theater and space for a pool or ping pong table. No doubt this will be well used by the new owners.

Our second home was not one we listed, but one we found for our clients. 496 Jennymac Dr was listed by Nick Groft of Smith Realty Group. This was a great Ranch style home with an open floor plan and a vaulted cieling in the great room. This home has 3 bedroom and 2 bathrooms, the master having an ensuite bath.

If you are wondering about selling your home or stuggling to find a new home we would love to help you. We have 30 years of combined real estate experience. We know real estate Louisville. Contact Scott Boehnlein or any of our other agents at Family Realty.


Delightful St Matthews Home - 4003 Elmwood Ave - $285,000

I'm rushing. It's Friday. Just found out I'm photographing a home. In 15 minutes. It's 15 minutes away. I'm on my way. I'm in my head, rearranging the day's schedule. It's going to be hectic. I'm close now. I've arrived. I look up. Serenity.

I'm standing on the corner of a large green lawn. A tall great tree extends its leafy bows in shady protection of its yard. A gentle breeze blows in from the South East and rustles the leaves of this tree guardian. Carefully manicured bushes, shrubs, and flowers surround inviting outdoor seating areas. I want to sit down, start a fire, put my feet up, and sip a cup of coffee. But I can't. I have to photograph the home in this yard. But it's going to be a pleasure.

That was my experience photographing 4003 Elmwood Ave. This 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom home has all the charm you would expect from a house in St Matthews. This updated ranch style home draws in lots of natural light complementing the hardwood floors.

The front great room has a wood burning fire place and, although welcoming, allows access to all other areas of the house. One could go through the large double doors to the side yard sitting area. Or down the hall to the bedrooms. Or into the formal dining area.

The formal dining area sits side by side the kitchen, seperated only by a bar style kitchen counter. The kitchen has stainless steal appliances, tall cabinets with ample storage. This whole area also opens out to the same side yard sitting area.

There are two bedrooms. The second bedroom also has lots of natural light and is served well by a full bathroom one door over. The master suite has a full ensuite bathroom, a large walk-in closet, and opens onto another side yard sitting area through large double doors.

The finished basement could serve as another great room, bedroom, or large office. There is also a seperate section of the basement that provides lots of storage. This home has a large flat yard, front porch, and perfectly manicured landscaping.

If you would like to experience this tranquil home as I did and possibly make it your home please contact Scott Boehnlein of Family Realty


Tacos in St Matthews

As you have probably guessed from our name, family is pretty important here at Family Realty. So as the end of the Summer drew near and the new school year was drawing upon us, many of us in the office made a point to do a few extra things with our families.

Our family decided to do a few fun events around Louisville. We went to a splash park, checked out the Louisville Slugger Museum, and naturally we ate out a couple times. On the Saturday we were dying for some Tacos.

Driving around St Matthews a new bright red and white building caught our eye. It was a new El Taco Lunchador restaurant. The only problem was they were so new, they weren't open yet. But this all changed this last Thursday as El Taco Lunchador opened a second location, now in St Matthews. 

As expected they did an amazing job. The line was literally out the door this weekend. People were quick to jump on Yelp and other foodie rating sites to tout the deliciousness they were served by the El Taco Lunchador crew. This makes St Matthews prime real estate Louisville for great Tacos.

St Matthews as desribed by its mayor, Richard J. Tonini, "...continues to attract homeowners and businesses alike because of the ambiance and vitality of the city. Homes remain in high demand and businesses continue to relocate within our boundaries. Our parks are a dynamic part of our community where families and friends gather to take advantage of playgrounds, walking paths, sporting events and communing with nature".

We couldn't have said it better. St Matthews is a very popular real estate area for just those reasons. There is a fantastic sense of community within St Matthews, with tree lined streets, fantasatic neighborhoods, and great schools. If you are interested in making St Matthews home please contact us at Family Realty. We would love to help you. We even have a delightful home listed that is quintessential of St Matthews tranquility and beauty.

This home which is relatively near the amenities of urban life still has all the charm of country living you could want. It really is the best of both worlds.

Nothing Eclipsing Our Sales - 2914 Summerfield Dr

The world is buzzing with talk of the Solar Ecliplse. Indeed this is a very unique moment in history. The moon will pass perfectly between the Sun and Earth so as to block the Sun's light from large portions of the globe for several minutes. This is such a unique event that NASA is reportadly "sponsoring 11 ground-based science investigations across the United States". Even as I write this blog right now I can see the world growing dark as moon shadow creeps over the land.

But although the moon is eclipsing the Sun, nothing will eclipse the fact that we sold yet another house this weekend. 2914 Summerfield Dr was listed 10 days ago by Scott Boehnlein and is now under contract. This 3 bedroom 3 bath home in the Hikes Point/Jeffersontown area was a great buy.

There were many updates to this home including inclucing fresh paint, new windows, new light fixtures, updated bathrooms, new professional landscaping, and new flooring throughout most rooms. No wonder it sold so quickly.

Jeffersontown is a well known and well loved area of Louisville, with great homes, neighborhoods, shopping, as well as the largest industrial park in the Commonwealth. Many love to call Jeffersontown home. You could too.

We would love to help you find a home or sell your home in Jeffersontown, or anywhere in Louisville. Please contact us at Family Realty for any information you might need about real estate Louisville.


Love Louisville - Eat Louisville - Real Estate Louisville

With the end of the Summer school holiday season we had a flurry of out of town visitors come visit us in Louisville. I recently wrote of friends coming from Florida, but since then my sister came to visit from  trip she is enjoying in Mexico which she is using to learn Spanish. Naturally I wanted to show off Louisville's eclectic foody scene, however my sister is a chef for a living, and a really good one. So I wanted to take her somewhere unique.

We were feeling like meat, burger meat specifically, so we ended up at one of the most unique burger places in Louisville. If not in all of the continental United States, Game. Game, as the name suggests, serves burgers of exotic wild game which they source from local farmers. Some of your burger choices include bison, lamb, wagyu, duck, wild boar, and elk. So we took a dive into the deep end ordering things we'd never eaten before and and were very pleased to recieve thick, juicy, perfectly cooked and sided burgers.

But Game is one of only three of the owners restaurants. One of their other eating establishments is Migo, which serves quite different fair. Migo is a "corner door eatery"  which serves great latin style food, while making sure to stay creative and also serve some of their own unique meals. I haven't yet eaten at Migo, but have recently discovered that it is only minutes from my office. So I'll probably need to make a lunch trip over there sometime in the near future.

Migo, like my office, is located in the lovely highlands area. Having recently blogged about the Highlands there is not need to go into much detail of how great an area it is with it's great local restaurants, unique store fronts, great neighborhoods, and lively culture. We have a home for sale in the Highlands just down the road from Migo.

2241 Dundee Rd is a completely renovated home. This lovely open plan home has wood flooring throughout the first floor. The front room, formal lounge, sun room, and kitchen flow effortlessly from one to the other. The kitchen is fully updated with new stainless steal appliances.

The second level includes two large bedrooms and a large master suite. The upper level is fully carpeted. There is a full bathroom and a full ensuite bathroom on this level. A half bath is included on the first level.

If you are interested in this home please contact Chris Dayton of Family Realty. Or if you want any further information about real estate Louisville any one of our dedicated agents at Family Realty would love to help. Maybe we could even meet at Migo for lunch.


2 New Listings - 2 Open Houses (Part 2 - 4003 Elmwood Ave)

We love listing homes we know people are going to love. It is so great for us to list two new homes this weekend for real estate Louisville, plus have Open Houses set up for both of them. We have already had the pleasure of introducing you to the first of the two, now I have the pleasure of introducing to the second of the two. 

4003 Elmwood Ave is an Oasis of a home in the exceptionally sought after St Matthews area. Tall green trees and manicured front lawns line the streets as you drive toward this 2 bedroom 2 bathroom home.

A large front yard greets you as you pull up to this home. A great tall tree stands guard in the front yard, while well kept plants, bushes and other foliage outline side and back yard sitting areas. Walking in the front door you are welcomed into the great room complete with fire place, large windows, and glass paned doors leading to the side yard.

From the great room you can see the formal dining room which opens to the kitchen complete with stainless steal appliances. From the kitchen you can get to the basement, half of which is finished, the other half offering great storage.

The ground floor has two bedrooms and two full bathrooms. Included in these is the master suite with ensuite bathroom. The master has a large walk-in closet, and also leads out onto another side yard seating area, perfect for relaxing after a long day at the office.

We are hosting an Open House this Sunday from 2pm-4pm for this home. If you would like more info or would like to see this home before then please contact Scott Boehnlein at Family Realty.


2 New Listings - 2 Open Houses (Part 1 - 15425 Timmons Way)

It's Friday and the weekend is upon us! I'm usually looking forward to the weekend anyway, but it's even better to hit the weekend with great news. We have great news for those with their eye on real estate Louisville. We have just listed two new houses and will host Open Houses for both of them this Sunday from 2pm-4pm.

15425 Timmons Way is the first of these great homes. This home is a large, multi-story, 4 bedroom, 3.5 bathroom, fully upgraded, 3 year old home. Walking in the front door you are greeted with lots of natural light pouring in through the large windows, as well as all wood floors. From the front door you can see the formal dining and great room which leads into the kitchen and kitchen nook. 

The large kitchen has granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances, an island, and a large pantry. The great room has a fireplace and floor to ceiling windows. The formal dining room features wainscoting and a tray ceiling.

The large master suite with ensuite bathroom and a laundry and mud room completes the first floor. The master includes a sitting area and a large walk-in closet. The ensuite bathroom features his/her vanities, a whirlpool tub, a ceramic tiled shower and floor, and a bath.

The second floor has 3 bedrooms all including walk-in closets. One has an attached full bath. There is also another full bath, a huge walk-in closet in the hallway, and an open hallway that overlooks the great room. This makes the second level feel part of the whole home and creates a wonderful open living experience.

The basement has 9 ft ceilings and although it is unfinished it has been framed out for a large open great room, a full bath, a separate room with a closet, and storage areas. This basement has fantastic potential to be a wonderfully comfortable living area and has plenty windows letting in natural light.

If you are interested in this property or want more information please contact Scott Boehnlein of Family Realty. There will be an Open House at this property this Sunday from 2pm-4pm. We hope to see you there. Part two of this blog will be coming shortly.
