Our Story


For over 100 years, Semonin REALTORS® has been a solid fixture in the Greater Louisville community, playing a part in its growth and helping our neighbors find a place to call home.  As the region's largest and oldest real estate firm and the industry leader in Kentuckiana, Semonin REALTORS® has an unparalleled level of support and experience that ensures our home buyers and sellers will have exceptional service from open house to close. 

Service has been the hallmark of Semonin REALTORS® since 1915, when Paul Semonin, Sr. first opened his real estate office in Louisville.  From the start, Semonin was known for its dedication to honesty and integrity in serving its customers.  When Paul Semonin, Jr. took over the business in the 1940s, he reaffirmed the company’s commitment to service and worked to apply it not only to Semonin’s own clients, but to the real estate profession as a whole. 

Today President and Chief Executive Officer, Brad DeVries, continues to guide the company in serving its customers, the community, and the real estate profession.  Semonin REALTORS® has maintained a culture embedded with five core values that agents and staff have taken to heart.  We embrace and practice these values daily and they are made evident all around our offices and out in the field.  They ensure we do business the right way, treat all people the proper way, and live our own lives our best way.  We take great pride in being the Heart of the Market and truly believe we owe our success and strong reputation in the community to these five values:

Bullet Point       Honesty and Integrity
