Republic Bank First Friday Hop

Just in time to kick off 2019 is the Republic Bank First Friday Hop. On the first Friday of each month, Republic Bank sponsors the First Friday Hop along with Tarc. The event takes place all day however many downtown restaurants, shops, art galleries, and other local businesses are open with extended evening hours. There is music, food and plenty of sights and entertainment for the entire family. The event was created as a way to promote and support the Louisville art scene.

Back in 2014, Tarc replaced the older trolleys with eco-friendly ZeroBuses. Tarc has recently renamed the ZeroBus the LouLift. The bus is powered by battery and runs 2 routes downtown. For more information on times and routes visit https://www.ridetarc.org/loulift/.

The Republic Bank First Friday Hop is a great way to get out and see some of the great things our Downtown has to offer. With hundreds of members from restaurants and breweries to museums and art galleries and everything in between there is something for everyone.  

Louisville is a wonderful city that Family Realty takes great pride in being a local business. We are excited to see what 2019 holds for real estate Louisville as we prepare for our second office opening later this year. Cheers to a great year!

Best Neighborhoods In Louisville for Christmas Lights

I am always amazed by how beautiful the neighborhoods in real estate Louisville look during the holidays. All the twinkle lights, holly, wreaths, inflatables, etc are such a joy to drive around and admire. As a kid that was one of my most favorite things to do. My folks would bundle us up in the car with blankets and hot chocolate and we would drive from neighborhood to neighborhood and place votes on which one was best. With so many choices, it is hard to narrow down who has THE BEST Christmas lights and decorations, but here are a few that we think do a pretty good job!

Lake Forest located in eastern Jefferson County has been a standout for many years. With a growing community of nearly 1700 homes, there are plenty of holiday sights to be seen.  Lake Forest is one of the larger subdivisions in Louisville and draws a large crowd since the majority of its population participates in holiday decorating.

Windemere Place is a small subdivision off Lowe Rd that some consider “the best place to see Christmas lights.” Nearly every house participates in the decorations and the HOA assists in lighting all the trees on the main entrance street. This neighborhood is a must see!

Over in the City of Norbourne Estates, these tree lined streets shine at night with their beautiful lights and decor. Rumor is there is even a couple of residents that dress as Mrs. Claus and Santa. They sit on their porch several nights during the holidays and take pictures with guests.

Owl Creek is another neighborhood on our top list of neighborhoods with the best holiday lights and decor. They even have a Christmas Light Contest. Not sure what the winner gets, but it encourages residents to participate in creating a beautiful scene for all to see.

After driving through these or any other neighborhoods if you are thinking of buying or selling then contact one of our agents today. Family Realty would love to help you find your dream home!

Christmas in Charlestown

Just across the river there is a small town in Indiana that is home to the largest animated light show in Southern Indiana. The City of Charlestown is just a short drive from real estate Louisville and only several miles from the East End Bridge. Christmas in Charlestown is a must on your Holiday to do list.

The light show plays on the town square from 6-11 pm each night. The beautiful light displays twinkle while Christmas songs ring out. After walking the town square, you can head on down to the Family Activities Park, where there is much more to see and do.

There is ice skating, mini golf, and a playground. After all that you can grab cookies and hot chocolate at the concession stand and take a ride on the Christmas Train Express. Enjoy more sights and sounds of Charlestown on this quick train trip.

Christmas in Charlestown is an excellent way to get in the holiday spirit. For more information on directions, dates and times, and activity prices visit http://cityofcharlestown.com/parks/annual-events/christmas-in-charlestown.

Lights Under Louisville at the Mega Caverns

While Thanksgiving is still a week away, one of Louisville’s most popular holiday experiences begins tomorrow, November 16 and runs through December 31. Lights Under Louisville at the Mega Caverns is the world’s only fully underground drive through Christmas light show.

There are over 3 million lights and 850 characters displayed to the tunes of your favorite Christmas carols. The young (and young at heart) will truly enjoy the sights and sounds.

New this year is the Christmas Express. These are daytime trips, and instead of driving yourself through, you are able to enjoy the show from an open top trailer. The rides last about 30 minutes and after it is through, children can enjoy milk and cookies!

With only 40 days until Christmas, you might want to start planning your trip now. To avoid long lines and wait times, try to avoid weekends, as these days seem to be the most crowded.

For more information on times and prices please visit http://lightsunderlouisville.com/#/.

From all of us at Family Realty we hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving!

Kentucky State Fair is almost here!

the Kentucky State Fair is almost here!

August 16-26, 2018

The Kentucky State Fair is just around the corner! Whether it is a yearly tradition for you to go, or you have never been before, this is an event you don’t want to miss.

Enjoy classic the classic fair food, or some of the more outrageous options, such as the famous “Donut Burger.”

There are rides and games galore for everyone in the family!

You will love watching the dog show and the horse show. There is also a vast array of farm animals that you can see, learn about, and even pet!

Here is what the Kentucky State Fair has to say:

“Colossal cattle, trotting horses, handcrafted heirlooms, flashy games, novelty foods, and dizzying rides—these are the constants of the Kentucky State Fair. They are the sights, sounds, smells, and tastes that the visitors to the Fair encountered in 1902 and they are still a major part of the fair experience today, more than one hundred years later. But the other constant thread documented throughout the history of the Fair is change. Kentucky State Fair history encompasses Kentucky’s growth and change in communication, transportation, technology and popular culture. Fair history reflects the challenges we have faced over the past century: to fight war and disease, to shift from rural toward increasingly more urban, to advance human rights and to grow more prosperous. The Fair has become the training ground, the testing site, and the public showcase for the Commonwealth’s progress. To borrow a promotional phrase used throughout the early decades of Fair history, the Fair is Kentucky Proud.”

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

Sledding Spots Louisville

It’s snowing in Louisville! Not sure if you noticed? As I type this blog I am watching fresh snow fall from the sky and cover Louisville in an ever deepening carpet of snow. The icy sky cotton has coated neighborhoods in real estate Louisville transforming them into winter wonderlands.

 

With the magical snow fall coinciding with Martin Luther King Jr. Day many families in Louisville are taking advantage of the day off school and celebrating by snow sledding. If you are wondering where you want to sled with your friends and family we did research for you. Louisvilleky.gov has announced six sites for public sledding*:

1. Cherokee Park (Baringer Hill, intersection of Alexander Rd and Scenic Loop)

Cherokee Park is situated in the Highlands but several other neighborhoods have entrances to the park: Cherokee Triangle, Bonnycastle, Highlands-Douglass, Crescent Hill and Seneca Gardens.

2. George Rogers Clark Park (1024 Thruston Ave, behind playground, near McKinley Ave)

George Rogers Clark Park is in the Audubon neighborhood and is bordered by Poplar Level Rd to the east.

3. Joe Creason Park (1297 Trevilian Way, behind Metro Parks administration building)

This park is right next door the Audubon and Camp Taylor neighborhoods in the Poplar Level neighborhood which is also home to Louisville Zoo.

4. McNeely Lake Park (6900 Cooper Chapel Road, near Korean War Memorial)

5. Tyler Park (1501 Castlewood Ave, on Tyler Park Dr side of park)

Tyler Park is situated in the Tyler Park neighborhood which is part of the Highlands and lies next to Deer Park and Germantown.

6. Charlie Vettiner Park (5550 Charlie Vettiner Park Rd, near Easum Rd entrance)

This park is situated on the south of Jeffersontown one of the more popular neighborhoods around Louisville.

I hope you have fun out in the snow today. Please make sure to be safe while your sledding, dress appropriately with layers, and be sure to have fun! If we see you out sledding the slopes please say hi. If not be sure to give Scott Boehnlein of Family Realty a call if you think we can be of assistance to you.  

*Please only sled these hills when the “Open” sign has been posted!

Professional Football League's Baseball Beginnings

With less than a month to go until Super Bowl 2018 means that this weekend is wildcard weekend all weekend. Shut down your schedules, fire up your TV’s, order your chips, dips, wings, and pizza, call some friends, and hit the couch for four action packed games.

The NFL Super Bowl playoff games are a National News story every January, but the first NFL league (not the same as today’s league) was a much smaller affair. It is reported  that the first league started when several baseball clubs formed football teams to play in the first ever (there were only two) World Series of Football.

The birth place of this idea was the mind of an Irish New Yorker Tom O’Rourke. Being the manager of Madison Square garden his brain always needed to brew good ideas to bring traffic into his giant arena. This time his brain brewed a 5 team indoor football tournament.

This tournament was not only the first football league it was also the first ever professional indoor football game. I’d say the only problem, but there were many, but one of the biggest problems of this indoor arena was the field was only about 70 yard by 35 yards.

Not only that but the arena walls are reported  to have been right on the sidelines which led to several players getting some pretty interesting injuries. But the tournament went on and 3000 or so fans were able to enjoy watching the game from much closer than ever before.

 

With stadiums today able to house tens of thousands of fans professional football has come a long way. We hope you have fun watching the games this weekend and hope you’ve already left your prediction on our Facebook page.

 

If you need to take a break from football and you have your eye on real estate Louisville. We are hosting an open house this Sunday from 2pm-4pm before the start of the Panthers Saints game. Take a look at the info for 101 Ash Ave. This 5,500 Sq. Ft. 5 bedroom, 5 bathroom is amazing. If you need more info call Chris Dayton of Family Realty.

Resolve to Set Great Goals for 2018!

What?!?! 2018 is today? How did that happen? Wasn’t it 2016 just 2 minutes ago? It is pretty amazing how time disappears like grains of sand falling through our finger tips. This only highlights the importance of planning our time effectively. At the start of the New Year many will sit down to try and write out some New Year’s Resolutions.

While there is nothing wrong with New Year’s Resolutions, I prefer to talk of Goals. New Year’s Resolutions carry with them the connotations of starting something new from scratch yet again. One sets them with no long term plan or with little hope of completing them.

Goals on the other hand are more like stepping stones or rungs on a step ladder to somewhere. In reality a resolution should be a long term objective, while a goal is a shorter term objective on your way to your life’s resolutions.

 

5 Year Resolutions

If you’ve never thought of goals or resolutions before you need to not just look at the year ahead, but a little longer. A good question to ask yourself when setting resolutions is, “Where do I see myself in 5 years’ time?”

“Where do I see myself…” could include where you want to be, who you want to be, or what you would like to do. But more importantly think of "you" in 5 years’ time.

5 years seems like a long time away, but it will fly by. However when thinking of your 5 year resolutions, dream big. There is more you can achieve in 5 years than you might think. So let’s say you just realized you’ve spent the last 10 years on the couch and you now want to get fit. Don’t be scared to resolve to run a marathon in 5 years’ time. You probably can!

The mistake we make is to resolve to run a marathon in 1 years’ time. While there is more we can do in 5 years than we think there is often less that we can do in 1 year than we think. So once you have decided on some 5 year resolutions write them down leaving space between each one.

1 Year Goals

Now you make the move to plan out some goals for 2018. The goals you make for 2018 need to be the first big step toward your 5 year resolutions you just wrote down. So if your 5 year resolution was “Run a full marathon”, your goal for 2018 might be, “Run a 5km by Christmas.”

 Meet SAM 

When setting these goals you need to become best buds with SAM! In other words the goals you set must be Specific, Attainable, and Measurable.

 Specific – goals must not be vague. A bad goal would be “I want to run this year.” If you haven’t run in 2017 one run in 2018 will do it. You’ll find excuses not to run and you’ll lose motivation because you’re not really aiming at anything specific.

 Attainable – from couch to full marathon in 1 year is not likely an attainable goal. Neither is “make a million dollars” when you have $2, or “start a tech empire” when you can’t operate a DVD player. Your 5 year resolutions are your big audacious resolutions. Your 1 year goals should stretch you out of your comfort zone, but they should be realistically attainable in a year.

If your 1 year goals are too big you will soon realize you won’t reach them and you’ll lose motivation and give up. “From the couch to 5km in 1 year” is a stretching but attainable goal. It is more than you have done last year, but it’s something achievable in a year.

 Measurable – goals must have some sort of measurability to them. Don’t just plan to run more this year plan to run a 5K. Don’t just plan to read more, plan to read X-number of books this year. Don’t just plan to eat healthy, list what you will and won’t eat.

Monthly Baby Steps

Once you have set your goals for the year you’ll need to go back and set up some baby steps of how you will reach that goal every week for the next month. So let’s say you’re doing the 5K by Christmas 2018.

So for January 2018 you might write, “Wake up 30 minutes early and walk for 15 minutes Monday through Saturday morning.” Or for the reader among us, “This month read one chapter a night in bed Monday through Thursday.”

In this phase of goal setting you must set two calendar dates. The first date needs to be for two weeks’ time. This will just be a quick review where you read over your goals to make sure you’re keeping up to speed. You may even mentally make some adjustments.

The second calendar date will be for the last weekend of the month. This will be more formal. Here you write out your baby steps for February 2018. For example, “Wake up 30 minutes early. Walk for 20 minutes every other day, run for 10 minutes every second day Monday through Saturday.”

Every month continue this same routine reviewing every two weeks and planning the next month’s baby steps the weekend before that month begins.

Some Final Tips

Post ‘em - Once you have your 5 Year Resolutions, 2018 Goals, and January 2018 Baby Steps written out post them somewhere visible. For example on the fridge, in your Bible, on your mirror, or on your PC screen. Seeing them every day will keep them fresh in your mind.

Tell ‘em – to keep yourself accountable and encouraged tell someone your goals. Ask them to ask you how you are doing, encourage you, and even give you a kick in the pants if you need it. We need others to help us and we can help others with their goals too.

Track ‘em – It helps to log your progress. This could be as simple as opening a note in your smartphone and simply typing, “Monday 1st – walked for 15 minutes” or “Monday 1st – Read chapter 1”. This will show you if you fall behind but also encourage you that you’re making progress.

Point ‘em – By this...

Merry Christmas Louisville

Merry Christmas! It is finally here. By this stage I am sure there are gifts lying under the tree, or more likely torn open wrapping and boxes. Many have or will be about to sing many Christmas carols. Others are firing up their kitchens ready to bring out a feast.

 

Children look forward to a day of playing with toys while we adults look forward to eating and taking an afternoon nap. Christmas is celebrated around the world and is celebrated in many ways by so many people. 

 

Christmas is a day to spend with family and friends celebrating and sharing gifts, time, and laughs. We also acknowledge that this Christmas might be a sad/happy one as one thinks of family and friends who are no longer with us while enjoying those that still are.

 

We at Family Realty want to say too all of you and especially those we have worked with closely over this year that our thoughts are with you. We hope you have a wonderful day and we look forward to seeing you in the New Year. We consider it a gift to be a part of real estate in Louisville because we love Louisville.

Christmas Events Part 1: Underground Light Extravaganza

The holiday season is in full swing and Christmas is only 24 days away (who’s counting?). The colder weather has certainly made an appearance. This morning I was met by a glittering wonderland as the frost clung to everything in sight and sparkled in the sunrise.

With the Christmas season there is lots to do with family and friends in and around Louisville. We at Family Realty don’t only love real estate Louisville, but love Louisville itself. So over the next few weeks we’ll highlight some great Louisville Christmas activities available this season.

We thought we’d start this series highlighting the most uniquely Louisville Christmas event: Lights under Louisville. Louisville is home to the Mega Cavern, a 4 000 000 Sq Ft former lime stone mine. Mega Cavern has several underground adventures including zip lines and bike trails. But over Christmas it hosts the largest underground light display in the world.

According to their website there are “over 850 lit characters with over 3,000,000 points of light” which you can view from the comfort of your own car as you travel the 17 mile track underground. This 30 or so minute drive is a spectacular light display for the whole family.

Lights under Louisville charges one price for a whole car and is open every night of the week until December 31st. They also offer a few promos and special events on their website. One of them is a dinner at Louisville Zoo nearby and a free VIP pass to the lights.

Part of the Mega Cavern is situated under the Louisville Zoo which is in the Poplar Hills neighborhood. This neighborhood lies alongside two other neighborhoods namely Audubon Park and Strathmoor Village. There is a good amount of green space in these neighborhoods including Creason Park and Audubon Country Club.

If you have any real estate needs this holiday season Family Realty would love to help. If so contact Scott Boehnlein or any one of our dedicated agents. We are here to help you with real estate Louisville, but also hope to help you with your Christmas fun in these blogs.

Thankful At Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is here! In our house the ingredients are already bought. Some are chilling in the fridge. Others are hanging in the pantry. All are awaiting their assembly, basting, and cooking on Thursday morning.

 

Once prepared friends and family will begin to arrive, the noise level in the house will begin to increase, and so will the corny dad jokes. There will hugging, laughing, old stories and new ones. Final touches will be made to the table and the turkey.

 

Silence will be called for, a blessing given, and then the food will be set upon from all angles. Meat, mashed potatoes, gravy, green bean casserole, and much more will we passed over and under each other. Personally I cannot wait.

 

But once our plates are empty and our bellies full another silence will be called. In our family this is the time to give thanks. We all take a turn to share the things that we are thankful for from the year just passed.

 

With family and friends though there is no escaping realty. We know when we’ve gone through a rough year or a difficult season. But even then we always find something significant to be thankful for. Yes even sometimes being thankful for the difficulty and all it taught us.

 

So with that in mind Family Realty would like to say thank you. We are thankful for our clients who put their trust in us. We are thankful for our team who works with diligence and professionalism. We are thankful for all our partners in real estate who help us serve our clients. We are thankful we live in such a great country and city and get to do what we do.

 

We at Family Realty hope you have a great thanksgiving and are encouraged from what you and your family can be thankful for.

What on Earth is My House Worth?

So you are sitting on the couch talking about your future with your closest of kin. You look around at your home and you float this statement out into the conversation, “I think it is time to move”. You look at one another and it’s clear you are both on the same page. But in that moment doubts and questions begin to float themselves into your conversation too.

 One of the first questions that usually rise to the surface is, “But what is our house actually worth anyway?”  You don’t necessarily keep a keen eye on the real estate market and it has been years since you bought your current property. But we at Family Realty do keep a keen eye on real estate Louisville and we help people buy and sell houses every week.

 We know that when thinking about selling your home or buying a new home, getting an accurate idea of the property’s value is an important first step in moving toward the right decision for you and your family. Our Home Value Estimator can give you a good idea of your home’s value so that you can be better informed about moving forward.

 Our FREE home value estimator is based on the latest data available. We draw our information from the most up-to-the-minute database that lists properties around the US. Our search uses information on recently sold homes in your area to estimate your house’s present value.

 Once you have a good idea of the estimated value of your home and have decided to move forward Scott Boehnlein of Family Realty can offer you great advice and help. We are a tight knit dedicated team that has decades of combined real estate experience.

Thank You Veterans!

"Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave, O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?" The last two verses of the national anthem celebrate the freedom and bravery of America and her citizens. Although there are many brave Americans none as brave as those who intentionally put their lives in harms way to secure the freedom of the rest of us. 

Many of us may say we would lay our lives down for another, but the American soldier actually does. They put their lives on the line for Americans they know and for those they will never know. We live in relative peace doing our work, playing with our children, doing what we do, while the American soldier willingly defends us around the world. 

The sacrifice of the soldier is not only his own sacrifice but also the sacrifice of their family. Many months of separation are experienced by military families around this nation. Today* Family Realty honors the Veterans who have served in the United States Armed Forces. Thank you for your willing sacrifice. Thank you for committing your life to our freedom.

*(Veteran's Day is officially November 11th, but because it falls on a Saturday this year many government agencies are observing the holiday today by closing for the day.)
