I am a Louisville native and Principal Broker of Keller Williams Realty Louisville East. I live in the St. Matthews area in a home that is only about a mile from where I grew up. Louisville is pretty awesome as far as I am concerned and I really wouldn't want to live anywhere else.
Feel free to contact The Brad Long Real Estate Group with any questions about selling or buying Louisville real estate.

The Great Lawn at the Riverfront - back to our roots.
From our humble beginnings as a portage point around the falls of the Ohio which was the only interruption along the 981 miles of the Ohio River. To today where Louisville is home base to UPS WorldPort, the cities location has helped fuel its growth. Our location, in the middle of the country between North and South, makes us a little difficult to categorize. My thoughts are that we are more midwestern in thinking with the friendliness of the South added to the mix. Most residents don't even agree on the proper pronunciation of Louisville, some say Louieville and some say Looavulle. Being that the city was named after King Louie XVI of France (for helping the colonist during the Revolutionary War) I guess Louieville is probably correct to the purist.
With our very low cost of living, (you can still buy a great house for under $200,000) and the amenities that go along with living in a large metro area, make Louisville hard to beat. Bungalows, 50s Cape Cods galore and of course no shortage of the ubiquitous McMansions will suite virtually any housing taste.
The photos above are just a few of the hundreds of Victorian homes in Old Louisville, a 45 block area which is the third largest preservation district in the United States. As stated on the Old Louisville Website: Old Louisville is a virtual open-air museum of Victorian architecture.
Located along the old Interurban Railway and in close proximity to Beargrass Creek St. Matthews was once one of the largest potato growing areas in the country. The automobile and the Flood of 1937 changed that forever. One of the earliest "Suburbs" of Louisville St. Matthews homes were built primarily from the Twenties through the Fifties. Tree lined streets with very well kept Capes, some Bungalows and other Traditional home styles, typify the area.
