Gov. Beshear Memes Bring Kentuckians Together

Few things have brought Kentuckians together more than the outpouring love and support for our level-headed governor in these uncertain times. Almost better than the 5pm "Beers with Beshear" Kentuckians have created hundreds of memes advocating for the governor.  We decided to compile a list of our favorites!

These cookies were created by Facebook user Taylor VanMeter. Is it fair to say that our our governor is looking like a total snack?

Come on, Slim. You know better. 

From Facebook

Settle down, Hank. This country boy just wants you to survive. 

Who can name this movie?

Let's cut the face-touching, folks!

Kentucky's dogs are seeing an unprecedented amount of walks and pets. Please give them the rest they're used to!

A Look Back At Family's New Build

Pouring concrete new building

On February 19, 2019 our crews began pouring the foundation at our new building in St. Matthews. Located near one of the busiest intersections in the area, people began talking about the new build in the neighborhood...

Owner Scott Bohenlein was out in the cold, directing traffic and providing assistance/ with the crews!

By June we had a (mostly) complete frame. Things were really starting to take shape. Heavy rains in the begginning of summer gave our wooden frame a run for its money, but our crew's ability prevailed!

Our team has been anxiously anticipating the construction of our new office building. Now that it is complete we have been compiling all of the footage/pictures from the building process. Stay tuned for the "Behind the Scenes" video!

The main conference room in the lobby bathes in natural light all day, which is why we decided to close off this space with clear glass panels and sliding glass doors. a

The final product!

Agent Sam Heine Interviews Ben Botkins

As a part of his biweekly interview series Street Talk, Family Realty’s own Sam Heine sits down(or in this case, stands up) with Ben Botkins, owner of Parkside Bike/Bed and Bike/local real estate developer to discuss his new plans to revitalize Bardstown Road in the Highlands.

“I used to sit just straight through there and I would just stare at these buildings.”...”I’d think those are two of the coolest buildings and this whole corridor - why are they just sitting here dying? Like how is this possible?”

“I assumed someone had cool plans for them. And it turns out no one did."

1300-1306 Bardstown is home to a former police headquarters, the Louisville ballet and a Bellsouth switching center. photo by Nick Beckman

“This was number one on our list”

Botkins plan is to create a boutique hospitality experience in the 1300-1306 block of bardstown road - the former Louisville Ballet building, Louisville Police Station and Bellsouth switching center. 

In response to those weary of new developers in the highlands, Botkins says there’s no need for worry. “This is a reactivation of amazing buildings that are worthy of a proper restoration.”

Botkins mentions in the interview a vision of the Bardstown corridor which will eventually stretch from the highlands to NuLu. “I mean...how cool - it just seems destined for that.”

Kelly Wathen - Agent of the Week

Meet our Family Realty Agent of the Week

Kelly Doyle Wathen

Here is what Kelly has to say:

"I’ve proudly lived in Louisville, KY the majority of my life, only leaving for a short period to attend the University of Kentucky (Go Cats!). I grew up in St. Matthews attending Our Lady of Lourdes and Sacred Heart Academy. I love this city and all its little unique pockets.

My passions for marketing and real estate collided in 2017 when I became a licensed Realtor®. Since, I have represented buyers and sellers, helping turn their dreams into a reality. I believe your home is your oasis. It is a place where life is lived, families are built, and memories are made. There is not a more important purchase, which can make it a little overwhelming. My goal when working with clients is to use my knowledge of buying and selling real estate to make the process as smooth as possible.

Outside of work I enjoy spending time with friends, family and my two amazing guys; my husband Turner, and son Hank. Hank was born in August 2017. Watching him grow and learn has been the highlight of my life. I am also working towards becoming a better cook. I am admittedly not a great one, but we’ve only had to order pizza once because of my dinner Pinterest fail, so I think I’m doing okay.

I love working for Family Realty, the support and culture of the brokerage is truly something special and I am lucky to be part of it. I hope one day myself or one of my fellow Family Realty colleagues can help make your home dreams come true!"

R. Clayton Knauer - Agent of the Week

Meet our Family Realty Agent of the Week

R. Clayton Knauer

Here is what Clayton has to say:

"I have been a licensed Realtor in the Louisville Metropolitan Area since 2005. In that time I have helped countless families and investors successfully buy and sell Real Estate. Prior to my career as a Realtor I was a licensed Mortgage Banker for 4 years. I have also worked in the remodeling and new construction of homes since I was 15 years old. You could say I have spent my life around Real Estate in one capacity or another.

Born and raised in Oregon I stayed in this area after attending Indiana University. Since 2004 my Western KY bride Toots, my dog Gus, and I have made St. Matthews our home. We chose Louisville to be “our town” and have been very happy to take advantage of all The Ville has to offer. When not working I enjoy spending time with my wife and friends, or fishing if I can find the time.

In 2018 I joined Family Realty after leaving a large, international Real Estate company. I was drawn to the personal service and “family” feel clients receive from this neighborhood company. Honesty, integrity, transparency, and service are my standard and Family Realty fits that model naturally.

If you or anyone you know is interested in buying or selling Real Estate I would appreciate the opportunity to prove how we can help achieve that goal."

Aaron Davis - Family Realty Featured Agent of the Week

Meet our Family Realty Agent of the Week - Aaron Davis

Here is what Aaron has to say:

" I’ve been an active licensed real estate agent in Kentucky since 2015. I prefer to use a data driven approach to helping my clients reach their highest potential when selling their property or in looking for their next place to call home.

I’m a person that loves to learn new things. I’m always listening to podcasts, reading books and articles and generally looking for ways to improve all areas of my life and career. Just like my approach to business, I like to apply a high level of discipline in my health and fitness. Crossfit has been something I’ve loved to do in order to stay strong and mobile. But the most important thing in my life has to be my family. My wife Rachael, and my four kids are the greatest blessings I have.

The role of an agent is to ensure the interest of their clients is always placed first, and I take this seriously by working very hard to negotiate through those key moments during your real estate transactions. As your agent, you have someone that consistently goes above and beyond for you."

Meet our Family Realty Agent of the Week, Chris Dayton!
Here is what Chris has to say:
"I am licensed Realtor® with Family Realty and a local Louisvillian. I obtained my professional license in 2011 and carry a nationally recognized designation of Accredited Buyer Representative (ABR®). After college I helped operate my family-owned interior designs and accessories business managing the day to day activities.

We would attend church on Sunday then drive around town and visit open houses. Real Estate has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. I am proud to serve each client in a professional manner and, as a result, my clients are happy to refer me to anyone interested in buying or selling real estate.
