I'm a guitar pickin' Realtor from Louisville, KY. I grew up in The Highlands and I currently live there as well. I consider myself a Louisville expert with a major focus on The Highlands and Clifton / Crescent Hill areas, but I know our entire awesome city very well! I also am a big fan of photography. I enjoy snapping photos all throughout the city and posting them on my neighborhood facebook pages.
