About Kentucky Select

Led by founders and partners John Stough Jr. and Sandy Gulick, and managing broker and partner Jay Gulick, Kentucky Select Properties was founded in 2004 and is now the top selling, 100% locally-owned and independent residential real estate company in Louisville.

The company takes its homegrown and locally-owned leadership role seriously. In addition to annually supporting more than 20 local non-profit organizations, Kentucky Select agents view themselves as ambassadors for Louisville. Whether its supporting company Fund for the Arts or Metro United Way campaigns, volunteering for the Mayor's "Give A Day Of Service",  touring the incredible Olmsted or 21st Century parks or having entrepreneurs update the company on the local business climate, Kentucky Select is actively engaged in making Louisville a great place to call home.

In 2016, 2018, 2019, 2020 and 2023 Kentucky Select was named the "Most Generous Small Company in Louisville" in the Business First of Louisville Partners in Philanthropy Awards. The company was also named an "Extraordinary Philanthropist" in 2016 by real estate peers at the 21st Annual Luxury Real Estate Conference in Aspen, Colorado.

Between them, John, Sandy and Jay have more than 80 years of sales and management experience in the Louisville residential real estate market. John and Sandy continue to be in the top 1% of all sales agents city wide based on annual sales volume. John serves as the principal broker for Kentucky Select, Jay manages operations, agent development and marketing & sales for the firm, and Sandy is a local real estate legend and the person most likely to feed you well at a broker’s open house.

John Stough, Sandy Gulick and Jay GulickKentucky Select is a brokerage run by and for real estate agents dedicated to raising the bar in their profession. The company's local market experts have an average of more than 15 years experience in real estate sales. The tag line, Trusted Direction in Real Estate, means simply that Kentucky Select clients should expect professional and ethical representation, discretion, extraordinary service and a knowledgeable guide to navigating the buying and selling process.

With an average sales price nearly double the market average, Kentucky Select Properties is a market leader for fine homes in Metro Louisville.

And while the company is proud of what they've accomplished in the high-end market, the ultimate success of its business is based on the satisfaction of all clients regardless of sales price. As an example, just last year a Kentucky Select agent sold properties ranging in price from $31,000 to $5,000,000!

Smart phones, social media, electronic key boxes and other technological advances have been wonderful additions to the industry in recent years. But to be clear, they are only tools. As always, the heart of the real estate business is the trusted relationship between agent and client.

Kentucky Select agents understand they have to earn the trust and loyalty of their clients with each and every transaction. They love what they do and would appreciate the opportunity to earn your business.
