"I couldn’t be more pleased with our experience working with Ann during our relocation in 2022. It was initially very overwhelming trying to handle prepping our home for sale, arrange for temporary housing and find a new home while both my husband and I beginning new jobs all during the craziest real estate market in years. Our house is a nearly 80 yo home with few of the amenities of a newer home. The other agents we spoke with didn’t see the positives that were very clear to Ann. She was such an amazing cheerleader for our little house. She is also so incredibly knowledgeable of the Highlands/St Matthews neighborhoo ds.We had so much to do in a very short time. Ann set up a calendar of events to get our house quickly ready for market. She had easy and helpful recommendations to get the place in show ready condition and helped us arrange for cleaning and handyman services. As it came time to list, she wrote the most glowing listing description and her photographer did such beautiful work. My husband and I were already relocated when the listing went active. It was a wild 48 hrs.! We had several over asking offers with complicated time sensitive clauses. She help us evaluate and organize all the offers and counteroffers, explaining the pros and cons of each. It really helped use make the best choice for our family! I would 100% recommend Ann to anyone looking to relocate to or buy/sell in Louisville." - AC + JC
"When we decided to sell our house we called Ann. She took control and walked us through the whole process. It went extremely smooth and we sold in less than a week. I would highly recommend Ann and this company! They take the stress out of selling a house!" - KB
“Over the years we have bought three homes, remodeled one, and sold two. Ann James has been there for them all. Her knowledge is immense, even with the remodeling job, and we greatly appreciated her expertise and expediency. She is very attentive and detail oriented, which helped us greatly. She went out of her way to help us on last minute things for which we were not able to get off work. She really is an asset to us and Kentucky Select Properties. If you need a Realtor®, we highly recommend Ann James!” - JK
“Not only did Ann James find us our first home but she held our hands through a harrowing ordeal with the seller and the bank and got us a terrific deal. When our family grew, Ann was there again to help us sell our home. Her unparalleled expertise in marketing and negotiating was critical during the process. In a matter of hours we had three offers that were over asking. We are now in a home that fits our family perfectly but I know if we needed to move again Ann would be there by our side. Buying and selling a home is never easy but we felt secure with Ann James. I continually refer her to friends and family. She is truly a REALTOR® extraordinaire.” - TPV + MDV

“Ann has been my agent for two home purchases and one home sale. She has made the experience seem effortless. Ann is very open and direct, and gives valuable feedback. She is also accommodating. Ann went beyond what I would expect from a Realtor®. She arranged for a colleague to be at our new home for the inspections and estimates, when she couldn’t be there herself. And was there when I couldn’t be. Twice she helped me get into the best house for my money in the neighborhoods I was looking. I trusted her judgement on the first location and was very glad I did. Ann helped me successfully negotiate the price on my second home purchase, after the inspection. She was also able to sell my previous house, in the price range I wanted, within just a couple of months of listing. Not to mention the numerous listings she arranged and showed me before I found my home.” - SLF + TS
