Bought a Condo home in 2015 in Central Business District, Louisville, KY.
Primary point of contact: Meg Wilburn
I was looking to buy after renting in Louisville for years, aiming for a property downtown. I met Meg Wilburn while looking at a home I'd seen on the internet. This was my 2nd go-round to look for a home, the last being 3 years ago. I've met plenty of agents. She was the first agent of many I'd met in similar situations who took time to ask me what I needed, what I wanted, rather than try to fit me into a home she had for sale. She and her assistant, Sally Hall, and the Joe Hayden team behind them made my offer and purchase seamless and stress free. I couldn't have asked for a better pair and group than this.

Recently, I switched career paths and took a new job. This required my wife and I (and our 6 month old daughter) to relocate from California to Kentucky. We did not know the area, or have any close friends to help show us around. Turns out, we didn't any of that. All we needed was Mike Gibson and the Joe Hayden Team. With the help of people like Mike Gibson and Sally Hall the relocation process went as smooth as it possibly could have. Mike's experience and knowledge of the Louisville area made it easy on my wife and I to filter out hundreds of homes and focus our limited time on the homes that we knew would meet all of our wants and needs.
We have been living in our new home for just over a month now and we are thrilled to be a part of our new neighborhood. I strongly recommend the Joe Hayden Team and specifically Mike Gibson. The professionalism and attention to detail that they displayed was superb. They treated us like one of their own.

I reached out to the Joe Hayden real estate team for assistance finding a new home. Mike Gibson is the agent I worked with, and he did an excellent job providing me with the information we needed. Mike is a true professional who is always prompt and courteous. He was also pretty knowledgeable about each property we visited. I was impressed with how engaged he was with ensuring that I had a good experience as a first time home buyer. I would definitely recommend the Joe Hayden real estate team again in the future.
We listed our condo with agent Anne Hayden. She was so easy to work with. This was the first property we have sold and she walked us thru each step professionally and patiently. Her advice was correct at every step of the process. She returned all contacts from us promptly and covered tasks when we were out of town. I would not hesitate to recommend her to others putting their property o the market. From listing to closing took 6 months and that included a long delay waiting on buyer financing. There were frequent showings.

Joe Hayden and his staff are top notch, all the way around. Joe helped us find the perfect home without doing any of the pushy sales stuff that naturally comes with most real estate firms. Joe was very professional in every regard, but still managed to make the process of finding our home "fun" at the same time. His knowledge and expertise in our target areas and in home craftsmanship was spectacular and truly helped us avoid problem homes. Pick Joe Hayden as your real estate agent and you will be very happy you did.

The Joe Hayden Team is a very experienced team. I worked with Russell Loving and his team to find a home that suited our needs and price range. He showed us homes during the week and on weekends. At all times he showed a great knowledge of the real estate "ins and outs". I trust this man and his team to try their best to meet your needs.

I was very pleased with Russell Loving from the Joe Hayden Real Estate office. I selected houses to view and he set them up for me working around my schedule and the difficult schedule of my husband as needed. When I was displeased with the houses I selected. Russell would take the homes I liked and find out more in depth information about them. Overall it was a pleasant experience.

Primary point of contact: Mike Gibson
While returning to our home town of Louisville, Kentucky after working in Indiana for almost 15 years we were very fortunate to have been able to work with Mike Gibson in our search for the place we now call home.
He was very knowledgeable and remained flexible in accommodating our crazy schedules and whims along the way as we looked at many, many different types of properties.
We would highly recommend Mike Gibson for any of your real estate needs!
We feel exceptionally fortunate to have engaged Mike Gibson (from Joe Hayden Real Estate Team) as our realtor for our relocation from the West Coast to Kentucky in summer 2014. Our initial phone call with Mike when we were looking for a realtor was very positive – he was extremely helpful in providing information, and did not pressure us in any way to work with him or his company. A follow up call where we discussed details of the reasons for the move, and what we were looking for in a house and a neighborhood convinced us that we could work well together. Given it was a cross country relocation, we did not want to make multiple trips to look at houses, so we spent significant time researching neighborhoods and houses on the internet. Mike reviewed the lists of properties we were considering, researched any potential issues, and advised us as to whether the properties would fit the criteria we had given him. He was extremely helpful in using his extensive Louisville experience and expertise to narrow down and prioritize our list of neighborhoods and properties. Mike was very responsive – often we heard back from him within hours – always within the day with a response to our inquiries.
We arranged to spend one week in Louisville, our intent being to visit the properties and make an offer on one during that week. Mike set aside a large portion of the week to work with us, and with the assistance of his excellent office manager, set up showings of multiple properties in several areas around Louisville. As we visited properties and gained more information, we refined our criteria, and consequently had Mike modify the showing schedule on the fly – twice! He was very accommodating and was able to accomplish this seamlessly. Mike was a wealth of knowledge – on neighborhoods, home construction types and trends, value for money, resale value, windows, carpets, landscaping, lifetime of appliances and furnishings, pools, terrain, etc. In addition to his expertise in the legalities of real estate transactions. Coming from out of state, we could not have felt nearly so comfortable purchasing a home within such a short timeframe, had we not had his local expertise guiding us.
The upshot was that by the third day in Louisville with Mike we had an acceptance on our offer for a property that was ideal for our family. We are now very happy owners of that home! Mike helped us through all the contractual and closing details, which we were doing remotely from the West Coast. He arranged the necessary inspections, and was present for such inspections when we could not be. Since we have moved in, there have continued to be small details that need to be taken care of, and given we are new to the area, Mike has been very helpful in connecting us with the appropriate resources.
We found Mike to be both highly experienced and highly knowledgeable. Beyond that however, what we particularly appreciated was he really cared that we find the right home for us. He took time to understand what was important to us, and was honest and upfront in his assessment of different aspects. He is also extremely personable – we much enjoyed the time we spent with him on the “house hunting tour”. We would definitely continue to work with Mike for any real estate transactions in our future – and we recommend him without any reservations.
