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

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."

"I am licensed Realtor® with Family Realty and a local Louisvillian.

Here is what Susie has to say:

"I feel fortunate to have met many wonderful people while working in Real Estate. Developing relationships with clients helps me better understand their needs and motivation for moving. As a licensed agent since 1995 I’ve learned every client and property is unique.

If every trip could be to the mountains, any mountains, I'd be happy.

I transitioned into real estate after acquiring rental properties in Germantown during my tenure as a state's attorney. I went on to law school at University of Louisville Brandeis School of Law where I received my Juris Doctorate as well as a Masters of Arts in Civic Leadership. I am a professional member of the Kentucky Bar Association and the American Bar Association.

'Tis The Season to Have Your HVAC Checked!

It's getting cold out there! Although some of us can handle the cold more than others, with these brisk Louisville autumn nights, chances are you have already started turning on the heat in your home - but have you had you had your routine HVAC maintenance yet?! We all know how miserable it is to wake up in the middle of the night, absolutely freezing because your heat went out. It always seems to happen at the worst times, and whether you have pets, kids, or a spouse...you better get ready to hear some complaining! Especially since this scenario is avoidable with routine preventative maintenance. It's important to have your HVAC checked at least twice a year. First, when you are about to turn on the heat for the first time, and second, when you are going to turn on your AC for the first time. This way you can catch and address any problems before they become a major inconvenience. Just remember that the longer into the season you wait, the more calls your local HVAC technician will be receiving. If something does go wrong, there is a good chance you will have to wait a few days before it can be fixed! So, make sure to get ahead of any HVAC issues, and can stay cozy and warm this season.

Wonderful Winter X-Games: How do they Relate to the Winter Olympics

It’s cold outside, snow has been common this winter, and so you might be thinking Louisville could be an appropriate host city for the Winter X-games. Unlikely. This year’s winter X Games will be hosted on Aspen Colorado's Buttermilk Mountain from Jan. 25-28.

 

With the winter Olympics just a few weeks away all eyes will be watching the Olympic performers to see who is performing at their peak! No doubt eyes will be on Shaun White who just completed a perfect 100 score to win the U.S. Grand Prix halfpipe event and clinch a US Olympic team spot for Pyeongchang, South Korea.

 

The winter X Games is not always a 100% predictor of who will medal at the winter Olympics, but it certainly gives you a good indication of where the athletes are at, who to watch in South Korea, and yes who might medal at the winter Olympics.

 

The winter X-Games is hosted, produced, and televised by ESPN as a companion event to the Summer X-Games which usually runs in August. All the events at the winter X-Games are free. Only if you want to enter the live music concerts every night do you need to purchase tickets. So if you are anywhere near Aspen you might want to enjoy some awesome free winter sports!

 

If you’re not near Aspen you could open your living room window, let in some cold air, and watch it live from the comfort of your own living room. During commercial breaks you could research real estate Louisville and give Scott Boehnlein of Family Realty a call.

Golden Globes, Screen Actors Guild, Academy Awards - What's The Difference?

With awards season well under way some of you might be wondering, “What is the difference between the Golden Globes, Screen Actors Guild Awards, and the Academy Awards?” There are two basic differences. Who decides the winners and what is awarded?

Who Decides the Winners?

The Golden Globes are presented by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. 93 members choose who will receive the prestigious golden globe.

The Screen Actors Guild awards are presented by (take a deep breath) the Screen Actors Guild-American Federation of Television and Radio Artists, a union for actors, journalists, radio personalities and other media professionals. Nominations are made by a randomly selected 2500 people group from the union and winners are voted on by the entire union.

The Academy Awards are presented by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. The winners are chosen by the Academy’s voting membership. Membership into the Academy can only be obtained by an invite from the current Academy membership.

What is Awarded?

The Golden Globes recognize excellence in both Film and Television, domestic and International. The golden globes generally award more singular awards such as best actor or actress, or best original score or television drama series.

The Screen Actors Guild Awards present awards for both Film and Prime Time Television. While these awards also award many singular awards they also award ensemble awards such as the Outstanding Performance by a Stunt Ensemble in a Motion Picture.

The Academy Awards are quite different from the other two awards ceremonies in that they only award prizes specifically for Film. The Academy Awards have their television equivalent in The Emmy’s and their musical equivalent in The Grammy’s.

As such these awards not only include awards for the “big name” type roles such as best actor or actress but also include awards for lesser known industry related categories such as best editing and best makeup and hair styling.

We hope this blog helps you understand the dazzle of the awards ceremonies, specifically the Screen Actors Guild Awards this Sunday, January 21, 2018 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM on TNT, TBS, and TruTV. But if you’d prefer to be dazzled by real estate Louisville you will want to call Scott Boehnlein of Family Realty or any of our other dedicated agents

Snow Safe Driver Tips

The snow continued to fall overnight making Louisville whiter and more magical in every way. Neighborhoods in real estate Louisville, which our team knows so well, look completely different. The bows of trees hold snow in a contrast of white on brown.

 

Front yards wear a blanket of white and many stairways are only visible by their rail sticking out of the snow. Deer prints can be seen alongside human tracks giving us insight into their nocturnal movements.

 

The roads however are cleared and wet forming pathways of shiny black cutting through the snowy landscape. It is these roads that cause so much anxiety during peak snowfall seasons. The snow and ice take familiar roads and transform them into surfaces we no longer understand.

 

So we thought it would be helpful to our customers, family, and friends to do some research and put together some snow safe driving tips.

Slow Everything Down

Like rain on the roadway, snow makes everything you do on the road slower. Stopping and turning take longer, so does your ability to see road obstacles. In fact, “hit the gas” should be completely removed from your vocabulary once snow hits the ground. Pushing the pedal down slowly avoids skidding and increases tire traction on road surfaces.

Open Everything Up

If stopping takes longer it follows that the distance required to bring your car to a stop will increase dramatically. This means you’ll need to start breaking much earlier than usual when you see a red stop sign, stop light, or break lights ahead. You should also more than double your following distance from other vehicles.

Don’t Stop When Going Up

Hills are undoubtedly trickier in the snow. It takes a lot more to get your car moving from a stop than it does if you’re just barely rolling forward. Add gravity pulling you down on a hill and you’re asking for trouble.

Ordinarily we step on our pedal in the middle of a hill. This won’t work in snowy conditions. Hitting the gas on a hill will cause your wheels to spin on a snow covered/icy road. You’ll want to instead increase your speed slightly before you get to the hill rather than on it.

The other safety option of course is just don’t leave the house! You could maybe work from home, watch a movie, or use our online helps such as our mortgage calculator and home value calculator or review our seller’s program or buyers program.

We also have several  helpful  blogs for those looking at the real estate Louisville market. Of course a lot of us have to go out in the cold and as such Scott Boehnlein and all at Family Realty hope these driving tips help. Keep safe in this winter weather.
