Louisville, KY - Homes For Sale
About Louisville Kentucky
Louisville, Kentucky is today a thriving city home to around 602,011 people. It is listed as the 8th most affordable city and 9th on the list of best cities for homeowners. Louisville also has direct access to three major interstate highways and an international airport. Famous for its food and easily accessible entertainment, Louisville has established itself as one of the most prominent cities of the south. Founded by George Rogers Clark, of Lewis and Clark, in 1778 the city gained its name from the French King of the 1700's Louis XVI. Although he had no luck in his own country, Louis XVI was more than generous in his contribution to the Patriots during the Revolutionary War. Louisville's location along the Ohio River, established it as a port city. Louisville became much more popular during the 1800's after the invention of the steamboat. Steamboats increased travel time, upping demand for shipments and allowed for easier navigation of the Falls of the Ohio, a shallow water area with a fossil bed underneath that often grounded ships. Louisville's own personal steamboat, The Belle of Louisville arrived in the city in 1931 and is the oldest river steamboat in operation today.
By 1830 Louisville was the largest city in Kentucky. Its quick growth can be attributed to the fact that Louisville was the first U.S. city to institute planning and zoning measures to facilitate city growth. The city would later serve as a Union Army supply depot during the Civil War. By 1880 Louisville was the first U.S. city to introduce the secret ballot and was now nationally known for its horseracing passion, and the incredible Kentucky Derby.
In 1923 Louisville's staple dish, the Hot Brown was created at the Famous Brown Hotel. It is a featured dish in the state and can be found in many interpretations around the city. Louisville was also the birthplace of Muhammed Ali, famous boxer and philanthropist. His non-profit museum is located on the riverfront and is a large contributor to the community.
Since the 1980's Louisville has redone much of its infrastructure, as well as contributing more to the arts, such as the Kentucky Center for the Arts which has since become home to the Kentucky Opera, Ballet and Orchestra. The Louisville Waterfront Park is 55 acres of waterfront property that had been converted into a public parks system. It was dedicated in 1999 and was a large part of Louisville's infrastructure renovation.
Louisville's major community partners and neighboring cities include Cincinnati (94 miles), Lexington (69 miles), Indianapolis (111 miles), Nashville (153 miles), and Columbus (190 miles).

Get A Personalized Opinion Of Value On My Home In Louisville
Martin Crane was absolutely incredible to us when we were buying our first home. He gave us step by step instructions and tried to make the process as easy as possible. He gave advice on putting in an offer on the house and what we should do if they counter offered and he even brought us a list of other houses similar to it just in case the sellers rejected us. He covered all bases with us and was fully determined to help us get our first home. He called and reminded us when things needed to be done and recommended services to us when it came for the termite inspections and such. He saw us through from beginning to end and we honestly couldn't have asked for a better REALTOR. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who needs a REALTOR.
Two months ago I began an earnest search for property in the Blankenbaker area. I came upon the name of one of your REALTORS on the website and called him on Memorial Day, a weekend that he was vacationing out of town, with his family. The fact that he would answer his phone on a holiday weekend was impressive.
When he got back to town he was available at the date I chose to show me a condominium in Swan Pointe that was listed with another REALTOR. Martin Crane seemed always available for any questions, extending valuable advice, and treating me like I was his only client. He has made my experience from choosing the property, the loan process, and the actual closing a really good experience. I don't think I could have found another REALTOR with more professionalism and attention to detail than Martin Crane.
You probably already realize what an asset he is to your firm, but I wanted you to know that there are clients such as myself who feel the same way.
I can honestly not say enough good things about Martin Crane. I had met with two other REALTORS before meeting him; one was my parent’s REALTOR who did not do a good job at all with us. I then found another REALTOR who showed us a couple of properties and then we never heard from him again. I was getting fed up and really wanted someone to help us, this was our first house so I really had no clue, not to mention my husband was deployed so I was kind of going this alone anyway. I called Martin because I saw his name associated with a listing online. We met immediately and began our journey from there. He found us several houses and when we didn’t end up choosing them, he still continued to help us and if he didn’t think a property was right for us or if he thought something was wrong he told us and didn’t hold back because he seemed to really care and really wanted us to be happy in our choice even if it meant more work for him. We searched several towns that were quite a drive for him, but he didn’t mind he showed us any house we wanted to see. He always kept us updated of new properties and existing properties that we were interested in. He advised us and helped us every step of the way, he was very patient with us and our situation (as I’m guessing we probably were not the easiest clients). He helped us find our perfect home and by the end we not only had a great REALTOR, but a new friend. I have recommended him to several friends and would recommend him to anyone!
Martin Crane gets the job done. Selling a house in a ever so shaky market is not an easy task, However, Martin kept to his word that if we price it right, show value,and make the house enticing, selling a house can be as much fun as buying one. Martin was an ambitious agent, who went above and beyond.I felt like we were partners and that I was always kept well informed of all steps during the selling process. Martin has gained my trust and I would highly recommend him for any of your real estate needs.
As far as I'm concerned, Martin Crane is the hardest working REALTOR in Louisville. My wife and I had a very unusual home to sell, and Martin never gave up. On his initial visit, Martin spent about six hours taking high quality photos and videos for his website, which helped to showcase the highlights of our unique house. When the market was stale, he kept advertising and showing the home when other REALTORS would have walked away. Tenacious, yet exceedingly polite, Martin reached out to every segment of the market and always kept his promises to us. When our home finally sold, he followed through until the new owners took possession, making sure the closure went off without a hitch. I look forward to working with him in the future, and I recommend him without reservation.
Martin Crane did a great job selling our tough-to-sell country home and 20 acres. The house was on the market during a down market for 12 months.
He held 10-15 open houses during that period and followed up with all of the prospects. We interviewed 3 real estate agents, one a friend, and selected Martin. His presentation to us was excellent and he did everything he said he would do and more. He is a great photographer and the photos he took of the property made it look its best. He is also an expert in online real estate selling. He is trustworthy and gave us straight answers whether we liked them or not. We will not hesitate calling Martin again and will recommend him to others.
If you need a good Realtor, look no further! Martin Crane has to be one of the hardest working Realtors we have ever seen. We had contacted another Realtor prior to listing our home with Martin, but since she took an entire month off for vacation and was not available, we stumbled onto Martin's name while looking for property to build on. After hearing Martin's presentation on how he would sell our current home, we decided to look no further for a Realtor. The pictures he took of our home were outstanding! He made some suggestions on how to best present our home and even helped with yard work!!! After one open house, we had a contract the next day. There were some obstacles with the buyer during the contract process which he handled in a very professional manner and kept us informed at all times. When we were loosing cool from the lack of communication on the buyers end, Martin kept his and got our questions answered. His attention to detail is what you need when you are in doubt of what to do. You know he is looking out for your best interest and he is always a phone call away, no matter the day or time, for answers to questions. Martin is detailed oriented, a great photographer, professional and on top of the market trends, but most of all, he is honest. When you hire Martin to sell your home, you know you will get the best price and the best Realtor! Thanks Martin for all your hard work in selling our home and we appreciate the help you are giving us in the building of our new home. You will be first on our list if we ever need another Realtor and we won't hesitate to recommend you to friends and family.
Martin, Melissa and I wanted to share how appreciative we are that you come into our lives and handling such important transactions with us. Your focus and efforts around our home sale/purchases is second to none. We had a very unique circumstance in our home selling and buying process. You stood beside us every step of the way with professionalism and patience. There was never a time that we did not feel like your number 1 client. Your attention to detail in both the sale and purchase of our homes is what allowed us to accomplish our goal. Your ability to cater to our communication style was special and very accommodating. Your customer service and knowledge of the industry completely sets you apart from all other realtors. You made our journey and exceptional customer experience. I could spend days recognizing all the things you did to assist us through our process. We want to be a referral source for you in the future. I have sent clients to you and expect to send many more. Due to your efforts Melissa and I would always be willing to speak to anyone who wants to talk to past clients of yours for a recommendation before engaging your services. Thank you again for allowing our dream to come true. Not only do we have that home we always wanted we have gained a true friend. We will be in touch and if you ever need anything from us let us know. Keep in touch.
Meridith is consultative and truly cares about the needs of her clients. If you’re imagining your dream home or anticipating an upcoming move I can’t recommend anyone better than Meridith Hamilton.
She was always available by phone call or text and even on nights when I was beyond stressed about packing boxes or my move in general she was there and ready to put my mind at ease.
She always included me in every aspect of selling my condo. She was professional always on time and attentive to my demands.She even helped with pictures and helping me clear counter tops and move furniture!
I would absolutely use her again if I needed a Realtor®. I would recommend her to friends and I will always be thankful to her for helping make my dream a reality.
