Adam and Deidre S.
We used Joe Hayden to sell our home in Louisville last summer and he was outstanding.
Before choosing a real estate agent, I conducted a lot of research to see who would be the best choice based on the investment they make into selling the property (time and effort, not necessarily financially) and how they promote their listings. The Joe Hayden Real Estate Team stood out as the best Louisville has to offer: their organic rankings are excellent (meaning people find listings on his site easily), their social media presence was strong, and I could tell they put a lot of work into their listings.
We spoke with Joe and then met with him at our home. He spent hours answering our questions, providing objective data regarding how many homes they sell, how long their listings typically stay on the market, and providing tons of info on comps in the area. We were concerned that our house, which was located pretty far from downtown and in a neighborhood with hundreds of similar homes would be tough to sell. Joe made the process incredibly easy and took extra steps many other Realtors don't (but should), like having a pro come and give us staging tips, having professional photographs taken, and a lot more.
When we saw our listing we were blown away. His hard work and knowledge of what it takes to sell a home really paid off - our listing looked amazing and knocked out the competition. The second buyer that saw the property put in an offer.
Our house went under contract 4 days after we put it on the market at 1% under asking price. We accepted and Joe (and Anne, who was also incredibly friendly and helpful) walked us through every step of the closing process. It couldn't have been a more pleasant experience.
I've recommended the Joe Hayden Real Estate Team to everyone I know. He's a true professional and a genuinely nice guy. I realize it won't always be this easy to sell your home, but I think you'd be hard pressed to find a better Realtor.

We were so fortunate to have found Joe Hayden when we moved to Louisville. As our Realtor, he helped us find the right house in the right neighborhood for the right price. He was patient as we traveled from Ohio to look at homes over several months and cautioned us about making unreasonable offers when we fell too quickly for overpriced homes.
In short, he was always on our side working to make our house purchase as simple and successful as possible. The best part about working with Joe was that he was always more focused on answering our questions, giving us good advice, and finding homes that met our needs than he was on closing a deal. We would recommend him to anyone.
Throughout my adult years, I have had the experience of purchasing a few different houses. As my family began to grow, I recently found the need and desire to purchase a larger home. I spoke to a variety of different realtors that showed me a variety of homes until I found Mike Gibson. When making such a large decision, I wanted to work with someone that I could trust.
Throughout the past several months, Mike has been there every step of the way. He has always answered every call or email no matter what time of day or night it was. His professionalism, mentorship, knowledge, honesty, and hard work ethic are much respected and appreciated. I never felt that he was just trying to sell me a house, but that he was a mentor to answer my questions and help me to make the best decision for my family.
I now consider Mike a friend and would highly recommend him to anyone that is searching for a new home. Thanks again to Mike Gibson and the Joe Hayden Real Estate Team for being such a pleasure to work with.
Adam and Corey Kline
We can't speak highly enough of our experience with Craig Greenwell. We were first-time homebuyers with very little knowledge about how to find the right place. We met with a couple of realtors before Craig, but we knew instantly that he was the one for us. He is honest and hands-on (he even crawled into creepy attics to check insulation for us!), and he really helped to take the pressure off of us.
We never felt forced to make an offer and when we finally found the "one" and ended up in a bidding war, Craig walked us through every step of the negotiations, even suggesting that we write a letter to the sellers to explain why we thought they should choose us. It was an unconventional approach but it worked and we thank Craig for that every day! We have several friends looking for homes and thinking about selling, and we always recommend Craig to them!
It was a pleasure to work with Meg Wilburn. A very kind person, helping us with a lot of time and dedication to get the house that we were looking for and not a house to buy quick. It took several houses to go around looking at the good and the bad and we didn't get the pressure with her to get a home which wasn't the right one for us. She always was trying to be sure that we were buying "our house".
Once we found it, she took care of every single detail with the seller's Realtor to complete all paperwork, inspections and any requests to the sellers.
We are enjoying our house and we have only a big thanks to her because she was on our side at all times and we got "our house".
My husband and I were very impressed with Shawn Hogle and the Joe Hayden Real Estate Team! Shawn went above and beyond to help us find the right house and walked us through every step of the closing process making it stress-free! They provided us with an excellent home inspector and were always there to answer our questions! We highly recommend Shawn and the team to anyone looking to buy or sell a home!
I would like to thank Russell Loving for his incredible patience with me. Finding a home is not easy. Russell was very honest and upfront on any questions I had. He works with a well-organized team who kept me informed about upcoming due dates, changes in scheduling and so on. Please take time to meet with the Joe Hayden Real Estate Team for your future home. Russell Loving keep up the good work!
I recently had the pleasure of working with Joe and Anne Hayden when looking for my home. From day 1, Anne was extremely responsive and had great suggestions for homes to view based on what I was looking for. All throughout the negotiations and closing Anne and Joe were there quickly handling any issues that may have risen. If the time ever comes when I will be looking for a new home, there isn't any question on who my Realtor will be!
Agent Jillian Lewis with the Joe Hayden Real Estate Team was professional and extremely prompt answering any questions or requests I had throughout the entire purchasing process. She provided creative solutions to challenging situations.
Wayne and Becky Hartigan
Joe Hayden is a very professional real estate agent who listened to our specific wants and needs. Since we are from out of town, his knowledge about East Louisville and Oldham County area was most helpful. I needed handicap accessibility which is hard to find, and Joe did not waste our time looking at property that had no potential to meet my requirements. We highly recommend for all your real estate needs.
Calling Craig Greenwell to help sell our home turned out to be the best decision of our transition. We knew we were getting a great person on our side, but he surpassed our expectations. Upon his first visit, we already had a solid plan to sell our home. He left us with a list of tasks to focus upon and prepare our home to show. This is where Craig's connections started to add value. He recommended an excellent finance agent to assist in purchasing our new home, connected us with top-notch electricians and plumbers, and sent us to an amazing crew of movers that made for a speedy transition and much stress reduction. To boot, he brought in a stager to help us highlight the beauty of our home. And with our staging plan in place, he even rolled up his sleeves and assisted in prepping the house for market.
Craig knows the Highlands. His selling price analysis was a precise exercise in which his knowledge of the neighborhood provided insight into the our market. This resulted in a final sale very close to our asking price and well above our original expectations. In addition, he knew how to market our home. The pictures on our listing made us almost regret selling the place! It blew us away when Craig called just four days after hitting the market with a great offer on our house. We accepted and Craig was there to advise us every step of the way all the way up to closing. We put our trust in Craig and it paid off.
Chris and Brittany Galvan
We'd never bought a house before and weren't sure what to expect. Joe Hayden had been highly recommended to us. Let me tell you he (and his team) EXCEEDED our expectations. He has a very kind demeanor, knows his stuff when it comes to homes, resale, inspections, specs, etc. I felt so comfortable with Joe. He was great about making appointments immediately, he always got back to us, and his advice was incredibly useful. I'd love to have "Joe" wherever we move in the future. He wasn't pushy at all, worked with our budget, and gave great advice about areas, schools, future resale, etc. His team was also lovely to work with. His wife Anne, is a sweetheart, she's great about communication and can answer any questions you have at a moments notice. We can't say enough wonderful things about Joe Hayden and the Joe Hayden Real Estate Team. A++!! We LOVE OUR HOME!
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 Real Estate 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.
Bill and Marsha Cattaneo
Anne Hayden of the Joe Hayden Real Estate Team was exceptionally helpful during our search for a patio home in east Louisville. Over the time frame of two months we emailed Anne dozens of times with questions. The queries were always promptly and clearly answered. What is most important, from initial search through escrow closing, Anne watched out for our interests. A superb real estate company.
Craig Greenwell was a phenomenal agent! His dedication to finding us our first home was more than we ever expected. He was so patient with us as we toured homes far outside the Louisville metro area late into the evening. With our budget in mind, he was able to look at questionable issues in some of the homes we toured and provide completely honest feedback. His judgment was priceless, as we were first-time buyers and unfamiliar with the many aspects and decisions involved in buying a home.
Craig's negotiation skills were also excellent. The home we selected for purchase was somewhat of a fixer-upper, and Craig's skills enabled us to get the price lowered to account for the repairs and renovations we intended to make. Craig was always available for phone calls, texts, and emails. There was never any waiting around for him to respond and, in a competitive market, that was a very valuable thing to have in an agent.
Overall, Craig is exceptionally knowledgeable, extremely patient, and very dedicated to his clients. We completely and fully endorse his services, and the services of the Joe Hayden Real Estate Team, to anyone buying or selling a home.
My new home purchase was made pain-free thanks to Joe Hayden. I was looking for a specific kind of property with acreage, and he searched the Metro Louisville area for suitable showings. We looked all around Crestwood and J-Town. His experience and professionalism quickly revealed a few places that we reviewed, then inspected. Joe knows the Louisville area market very well, and steered me away from a few lemons. I highly recommend him and will only use his expertise on any and all real estate jobs I have in the future. He is trustworthy, hard-working, intelligent, and a good listener (he asks many questions to totally understand your needs).
As we were planning a relocation from California to Kentucky I began searching for an agent on-line. Mike Gibson promptly responded to an email request for information. Shortly thereafter we flew into town with only five days to find our new home and start the offer process. Mike was absolutely fantastic! He devoted a solid four days to helping us in the search, getting houses opened and guiding us all over the Louisville area. His understanding of the current market as related to specific neighborhoods was invaluable, certainly saving us time.
By the end of the week we had selected our new home and were making an offer. Our experience with Mike didn’t end there though. While back in California Mike remained an essential part of our team guiding us through a long distance home purchase. Mike's wisdom, patience and perseverance truly made the difference. I can’t say enough in recommending Mike as an agent.
Christina and Bobby W.
Our family can honestly say that we were completely satisfied with the services we received through Joe Hayden and his entire team. From the beginning, we were impressed with his personal approach, professionalism, attention to detail, and hard work.
Chris and Beth Brooke
While many real estate agents feel the need to upsell clients, Anne Hayden uses her expertise for the benefit of the people she works with. Unlike some other agents, she listened to what we needed and wanted during our 400-mile move and worked until we found it. Beth and I found her nothing but honest and helpful during our home search. When we go to put our home on the market the next time, the first agent we're going to reach out to will be Anne!
My wife and I have spent the past 12 years working in the Louisville area real estate market during which time we've met so many real estate agents. Joe Hayden is one of the very best and has the heart of a teacher. Joe's team is who we chose to sell our own home, and we would highly recommend them to anyone buying or selling a home in the Louisville area.
Craig Greenwell was the strongest possible advocate for the sale of my house. Not only was he attentive and thorough in addressing my wishes and concerns regarding the listing and showings, he got personally involved with helping me move out when the house finally sold!
He knows how to go above and beyond in making sure everything is done appropriately, and most of all, he is a man of integrity, whom you can trust. This was especially important for me, since I lived out-of-state. He is the BEST real estate agent I have ever worked with!
Helen and Paul Genardi
Paul and I are soooo fortunate in getting connected with Mike Hubrich during our search for a new home in Louisville. We had sold our home in Florida and were returning to our hometown. We bought our home there 34 years ago in anticipation of retirement and became full time residents there about 16 years ago - now time to come home to Louisville! It was a bit hectic and perhaps even traumatic to leave such a beautiful home and climate --- leaning on Mike during this transition sure made it a lot less stressful to say the least! Mike was always calm, listening to our every request for information. He was immediately responsive to our questions to help us in making a decision. Mike was there for US! We would, and will, recommend Mike to anyone in the market to purchase a home. We will also look to Mike when we have any future real estate needs. We were impressed with Mike's professionalism and his genuine interest in assuring we were satisfied with our final decision on our new place. The best part is that we now have a new friend - a friendship that will continue to grow!
Sharry and Bruce Jacobson
We were so happy with Jillian Lewis! She was always professional, but still fun to be around. She responded to any questions we had quickly and we honestly have commented many times on how lucky we were to have had her as our realtor. We also thank you, Sally, for all your help. I know it was frustrating at times, trying to get a response from our "friend" at USAA, but you always came through. All in all, we highly recommend Jillian and the Joe Hayden Real Estate Team. We LOVE our condo. Tell Jillian the black counter is gone, and new cabinets have been ordered and will be here in about 4 weeks, along with new granite counter tops in the kitchen. Other than that, we haven't had to do a thing! It's been amazing. Thanks again for everyone's help!
The Joe Hayden Real Estate Team was super helpful. We had a difficult situation. We were trying to sell our home in Florida, and there was some trouble with the buyer. We needed that house to close so that we could buy a home here. Craig and Joe bent over backwards to work with the seller here to try and close the deal. They even gave us $500 because we had to put our furniture in storage while all the negotiations were going on. I think Craig and Joe did an outstanding job!
They were really great. Jillian Lewis helped me find a house. She explained the entire process to me. This is the first time I’ve ever bought a home. Any time I had questions, I could call her. She helped me find mortgage people, home inspectors—anyone I needed. I felt like she really listened to all the facets that I needed for my family, and kept them in mind when we were looking for houses. She was very patient and a lot of fun to work with.
Meg Wilburn was really polite. I was very pleased with the houses that she showed me. A couple of times I would call her because I wasn’t sure about something with the house, and she found out everything for me.
Awesome. I don’t think we could have asked for a better Realtor. We actually had the house on the market two or three other times, and in the past we didn’t work with a realty team. Every step of the way they went above and beyond. They came out to the house and showed us little upgrades here and there that go a long way to sell the house. And it shows—we sold the house in three months! Just every step of the way the Joe Hayden Real Estate Team was outstanding.
To Mike Gibson and the Joe Hayden Real Estate Team, I can't thank you enough for the assistance and guidance you provided during my recent home purchase. You and the rest of the team were professional, informative, responsive and patient during EVERY step of the process. I always felt comfortable that you had my best interest at heart. You made a potentially difficult process relatively easy. Mike truly has the "heart of a teacher", and gained my full trust during this process. If I ever have any future real estate needs in this area, you will be the first person I contact. Thanks again...
Everyone on the Joe Hayden Real Estate Team was awesome and we couldn't be happier with our new home! Not only did Jillian Lewis sell our previous property in a timely manner but she also was the one who found our new home. We could not have done it without her! The communications from you and Jillian were great! We appreciated the updates and info. We never felt like we were in the dark.
I want to thank Mike Gibson for handling the purchase of my patio home in Louisville, KY. He was a professional in all steps that had to be taken to get the purchase accomplished. As this was the first time I’ve bought a home on my own, his expertise was greatly appreciated.
I will be glad, at any time, to refer Mike and/or the Joe Hayden Real Estate Team to anyone who is seeking a home in the area.
We had to move very quickly on finding an acceptable condo, and we were supremely lucky to find Craig Greenwell to guide us from beginning our search to closing in two weeks. He was extremely rapid in all his responses, knowledgeable, hardworking, generous, patient, gave first class advice, used all available technology superbly, and kept us informed thoroughly at every stage. Our previous experiences with real estate transactions, good as they were, paled by comparison. We were very impressed with the comprehensive services offered by the Joe Hayden Real Estate Team. Craig also personally went far beyond the call of duty in accommodating us and steering our search to a satisfactory conclusion. We were very happy with the outcome!
We were very fortunate to have worked with Mike Gibson through our first home buying experience! He was kind, thoughtful and informative throughout the entire process and we couldn't have asked for anything more! We're now in our new place and couldn't thank Mike enough for all of his hard work! I would recommend Mike and the entire Joe Hayden Real Estate Team to anyone!
Lorna and Gary
Anne Hayden was so efficient, helpful, and absolutely wonderful from the time we contacted her by phone and e-mails to purchase our home in Louisville, KY. We are in PA and needed help to do all of the paperwork on line. We can not say enough positive things about her and the Joe Hayden Real Estate Team.
Mike Gibson of the Joe Hayden Real Estate Team assisted me and my fiance in the purchase of our first home. We had one of the lowest budgets around and he still had all the patience in the world. He always helped point out the things that we would not like about certain houses and never hesitated to answer questions honestly. It was obvious Mike was not with us to make "a quick buck." He was always available to look at houses the day we were available and never ever rushed any decisions. I would never recommend anyone other than Mike and the Joe Hayden Real Estate Team!!!
My experience in the recent purchase of my patio home was very positive. I feel that I had great luck in that Craig Greenwell turned out to be the agent representing the Joe Hayden Real Estate Team. I did not have my own agent, and I'm so glad because I couldn't have had one that I trusted more. Craig's sincerity and caring about his customers is very evident. He is very detailed and very thorough, which surprised me. But pleasantly. I will recommend him to anyone I know interested in a real estate transaction of any type.
David L. Daugherty
We have experienced Mike Gibson's professionalism and his sincere desire that our new home selection was the best to be found. Mike guided us through all appropriate procedures to insure a timely and correct closing. After having dealt with a number of real estate agents whose sole motivation was to collect a commission irrespective of the client's real needs, it is refreshing to know that professionalism still does exist within the real estate industry.
Anne Hayden was very professional in all aspects of the process. She responded to every question quickly. She gave excellent customer service and we will use her services in the future. She also showed a genuine concern for our needs and the needs of our new addition to our family. You won't go wrong using her as your Realtor!
Deanna and Chris Bielefeld
Mike Gibson with the Joe Hayden Real Estate Team was very good to work with. He provided Deanna and myself with quick information about new property offerings which put us in a position to make our recent purchase - Thanks!
I recently bought a condo in Louisville, Kentucky through Meg Wilburn, of the Joe Hayden Real Estate Team and would highly recommend her as an agent. I visited here in February to start a search, however my condo in Myrtle Beach had not yet been sold. Meg took a good amount of time to show my friend and me several listings in my price range. I found two in a condo building which I liked very much. However, no decision could be made yet. During the next five months, Meg continued to stay in contact with me, sending other listings. In June, a condo in the building I liked came on the market and I had to move fast to make an offer. Thankfully my condo had sold a few days before.
We just bought our first house with the help of Craig Greenwell, one of the Realtors from the Joe Hayden Real Estate Team. Although this was our first time actually buying a home, a couple of years back we tried to buy a property in Miami, so we were familiar with the process. Also, we have moved 3 times during the last 6 years, so we have had many experiences with Realtors previously (many of them pretty bad).
I can say I am very satisfied with Craig's work and we are very happy with our new home. After our previous experiences with Realtors, the 3 most important requirements one needs are honesty, knowledge of the market and dedication (and honesty seems to be a luxury in the real estate market this days). Craig Greenwell has all three of them and is really a pleasure to work with. He was always available, has extensive knowledge of the Louisville area and is indeed a very honest man. Although we have different tastes he was able to understand our needs and work with us. He sees the home buying process as an investment and in this rocky market that’s a big plus I believe. They have a wonderful team and their office manager, Sally Hall, who assisted us during the closing process, is just superb. I will certainly recommend Craig without hesitation.
We had a fantastic experience with Mike Gibson from the Joe Hayden Real Estate Team!! From start to finish, Mike was extremely considerate of our needs. He made himself available 24/7. The process was painless and efficient. Thank you Mike for getting me into my first home!!
Moving from another metropolitan service area, I didn't have a Realtor. I saw a listing on the Internet that I liked and that's how it came to be that I reached out to Meg Wilburn, with the Joe Hayden Real Estate Team. Almost instantaneously, I saw proof of a knowledgeable, capable, buyer-first real estate expert. I absolutely would recommend working with Meg Wilburn and the Joe Hayden Real Estate Team.
My husband, daughter and I were looking for a home for my daughter. We were looking on our own. The home we found required us to have an agent. Luckily, we were paired with Anne Hayden. She was great. She never tired of answering all our questions. She was our liaison with a builder who was difficult at best and rude and unresponsive at worst. She was persistent when the builder wouldn't respond. She guided us through the whole process with great expertise. I would strongly recommend her to anyone. Her office staff was GREAT also. Because of issues with the builder, our closing was rescheduled 3 times. Her staff quickly responded to the changes and was always pleasant. Use this team - you won't be sorry.
Although an agent with another realtor found the condo I eventually purchased, she or her team did not follow up when I requested to see the property on more than one occasion. Mike Gibson contacted me and hit the ground running. With his assistance the seller accepted our bid, but several hitches developed due to the inspection process none of which were the problem of Mike or the Joe Hayden Real Estate Team. Mike stuck with me and helped me navigate the land mines aided by his substantial experience which ended in a very satisfactory experience.
I was very satisfied with the results that we received from the Joe Hayden Real Estate Team. Meg Wilburn was able to keep us informed about everything and answered my questions when I needed them to be answered. I wanted it sold within a certain length of time and we were able to get it done so I’m pretty happy. She was just there when I needed her.
Anne Hayden worked with me for a whole year because I wasn’t quite sure what I wanted. She was very patient and every time she greeted me, it was with a smile on her face. She was very encouraging and when I finally found what I wanted, she got me through every step of the way. It was an excellent experience.
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 need any of that. All we needed was Mike Gibson and the Joe Hayden Real Estate 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 Real Estate Team and specifically Mike Gibson. The professionalism and attention to detail that they displayed was superb. They treated us like one of their own.
Anne Hayden was always available to me and texted me back at all hours of the day or night. She walked me through the entire home buying process and really just has a lot of expertise in the field. Any time I needed her, she was there and just went above and beyond on a consistent basis.
We had already come into town and then found out that the school systems in Jefferson County weren’t the greatest. Mike Gibson of the Joe Hayden Real Estate Team basically had that evening to find us a different set of homes to look at the next day during an ice storm. He had to do a lot of work but he booked us a ton of houses.
They sold my mother’s home and I was very glad that we found somebody who was interested. Anne Hayden showed the home a lot of times and always kept me informed. I was out of town and she would always call me and even worked with me when I had a few repairs and things to do. She was just very helpful!
My husband and I were selling a house for the first time and buying a new one for our growing family. We could not be happier with our experience with Craig Greenwell and the Joe Hayden Real Estate Team. Craig went above and beyond working to help us prepare our house, was a great communicator, was always quick to answer and ease our worries and truly cared about us as individuals. He also was extremely knowledgeable and worked to make sure he was fitting our individual needs. The whole Joe Hayden team worked alongside us, letting us know what was going on every step of the way. When we bought our first house, we had a negative experience with a Realtor which made us nervous about selecting a Realtor this time around. However, working with Craig and the Joe Hayden team could not have been a better experience. I would HIGHLY recommend this team and Craig especially if you want someone who will go above and beyond for you, someone who truly knows what they are doing, and someone who truly cares about you as individuals.
Jake and Katie Walz
My wife and I are very pleased with our new home. Everything went very smoothly. I want to thank Mike Gibson of the Joe Hayden Real Estate Team for making this such an easy experience! He did a great job of showing us houses that met our "must haves" and "prefers" list. We really appreciate all the great guidance he gave us in making an offer and going through the contract process. And we're appreciative of Mike for taking care of all the inspection and other issues. Mike was easy to work with and very quick and professional in acting on our behalf.
Lindsay Adcock and Nick Wantland
My fiance and I had an amazing experience with our Realtor Mike Gibson. He was kind, passionate about his work, and was always readily available for us new home buyers when we had questions or concerns. He truly made the our first home buying experience easy and quick. We never felt stressed during the process and he always kept us well informed. I HIGHLY suggest anyone looking for a Realtor to go with Mike at the Joe Hayden Real Estate Team. We have suggested him to friends of ours, that is how confident we are in him. He is an awesome guy and we plan on using him again if we ever need to move.
Erika and Steve
Our experience with the Joe Hayden Real Estate Team was priceless. This was really the first time my fiance (Steve) and I had gotten to a point where we were ready to purchase - at least that is what we thought. When we met Mike Gibson, he really schooled us on a lot of things which were good things to think about when making a lifetime commitment to purchase a new home. We had looked at a lot of different types of homes - patio homes, single family homes, East End versus South End, and we sent Mike through it all, but we eventually settled on a patio home in the South End.
He sent us home with homework a couple of times and things to think and talk about. We knew that we had someone in our corner who was really looking out for us, not just trying to sell us a home. Mike, as I like to call him because he really became a good friend, answered all question big or small, no request was too small. Even when he had to step away for a while to take care of a personal matter, he left us in great hands with the rest of the team. We didn't have any problems whatsoever. They all are very thorough with handling their clients.
Stephanie and John Lathrop
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.

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 on 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.

We worked with Russell Loving. He was great! He jumped through many hoops and was always willing to go the extra mile to get us into the house that suited us best! We will most definitely recommend Russell and the entire Joe Hayden Real Estate Team in the future! Great job, Russell!!

I was very pleased with Russell Loving from the Joe Hayden Real Estate Team 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.
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!
Mike Gibson has been a wonderful and insightful Realtor and friend to me during this process. This was my first time purchasing a home and I was very uneasy about the whole process. Thankfully, through support of my family and Mike I was able to find the house for me. During the process, Mike had to put up with my stubbornness and determination (to find that perfect house) while we looked at a handful of houses. There were times that I was about to walk away from the deal and Mike's encouragement opened my eyes and I was shown the reality of the situation (which was never as big as I made it out to be).
I want to thank Mike (and his family) for all of his time and efforts in finding me a house for me. I am now happy and settled in a place I can call my own! Mike is a wonderful person and I am honored to have been able to work with him in this milestone of my life. I recommend Mike to anyone looking for a home because I know that he will be honest and open about the good and the bad. Thank you Mike for being there for me and putting up with my stress!
I cannot say enough positive things about my experience with Mike Gibson. His professionalism, work ethic, and genuine care for my wife and I made our first home buying experience fun and very successful. This was no easy task as most of our search was done over the telephone and internet while I was transitioning out of the military across the country.
Mike was always patient, understanding, and informative. He never failed to make me feel like we were his only clients, even though I know his stellar reputation keeps him a very busy man. His 40 plus years of experience were invaluable for a first time home buyer with little to no knowledge of the area. He was able to tactfully and respectfully educate me on the home buying process using his vast knowledge of the local market.
A warm and caring person, I always knew Mike had our best interests at heart. I realize a lot of Realtors probably say that to their clients , but after working with him I know that he truly means it. I recommend Mike Gibson and the Joe Hayden Real Estate Team with enthusiasm for all your Louisville area real estate needs. I know that when the time comes to sell the beautiful home he helped us find, Mike will be the first phone call that I make.
Mike: Again, I can't thank you enough. We are incredibly happy and enjoying our new home.

I hate that it has taking me two months to do this review, but it in no way reflects how my husband and I feel about the experience we had with Mike Gibson of the Joe Hayden Real Estate Team. From the first time we met Mr. Gibson we felt like he was someone we had always known. We wanted a Realtor who would be honest and care more about learning our needs and wishes then he was in making the highest sell. We got that and more in Mike Gibson. He is a truly genuine person who has the years of experience in the field to back up his knowledge. We thought this process would take months, instead it took about three weeks. Mr. Gibson was patient and helped us to keep our heads on straight throughout the nail biting process. I would highly recommend Mike Gibson and the Joe Hayden Real Estate Team.

Mike Gibson with the Joe Hayden Real Estate Team worked feverishly to find my wife and I our dream home. I know he deals with many people, but his amazing service and attention to detail made us feel like we were his only clients.
My husband and I recently used Laura Wheeler with the Joe Hayden Real Estate Team for the sale of our house in Oldham County. We found Laura to be exceptionally fun to work with, extremely knowledgeable, and she was "on it" when it came to any requests we had. She showed our home more than any other agent and the house sold within 45 days! Her expertise in staging the home was a tremendous help and we thoroughly enjoyed working with their team!!! We would recommend Laura Wheeler and the Joe Hayden Real Estate Team to anyone and if we need an agent again, it WILL be them!
My wife and I used Laura Wheeler from the Joe Hayden Real Estate Team to purchase our house. She was always willing to go above and beyond her responsibility to assist us with our AMAZING purchase!!!!!! She is a positive reflection of The Joe Hayden Real Estate Team and what buying a home should be about. I would recommend Laura and The Joe Hayden Real Estate Team to anyone who wanted to buy house. Even to decorate your new home if needed.
We used Laura Wheeler for both the purchase and selling of our home. She was more than excellent. Very informative and helpful and really seemed to work for us. She had great ideas on getting our home 'show ready' and I felt like she put an extra foot forward in selling our home. When purchasing our home, I flew in from Texas and she met with me and showed me around to several different homes all in a day. She coordinated all the showings in advance and kept us moving because she knew I had to catch a flight back that evening. She went above and beyond. I recommend her to anyone and everyone who may be looking to sell or purchase a home.

Laura Wheeler has been our agent when we sold 2 houses. Kudos to her - she is absolutely fabulous. The first house had been listed with another agency and when the listing expired Laura took over. It sold in a few weeks. She is superb at staging the property and has a terrific personality. I honestly cannot praise her enough.
I purchased thru the Joe Hayden Real Estate Team last month and wanted to tell you how great it was to work with Frank Campbell. He was just the person I was looking for to help me make a great educated decision on the largest investment in my life time, my new home. Frank was always on time and understood my likes and dislikes right off the bat. Even after the sale when the previous owners moved out they left their above ground pool, which they where contracted to take. Being that they had moved to Colorado, Frank offered to take care of problem himself. So last weekend we got together, tore down the pool and discarded it appropriately. Frank even got dirty and didn't mind at all, and that to me speaks a lot of his character.
Thank you all for your business and providing great service for me plus I made a friend in the process.
PS - Your website is great! It's how I learned about your real estate office.
Our buyer's agent, Frank Campbell, was always courteous and professional. He put forth the effort to help us find our first home, including making himself available on nights and weekends to show us listings that we were interested in. Our mortgage lender's representative was a bit difficult to deal with and Frank handled it very well without losing his positive attitude or his kind demeanor.
Once we found our home, the seller's agent was quite slow to communicate during the buying process, sometimes not responding to us for several days at a time. Frank did what he could to keep forward momentum in the process without hounding them. Everyone has their own style when it comes to dealing with uncooperative people, and Frank's style is to maintain a certain degree of space in order to keep things from turning hostile. Other buyers who are looking for an "attack dog" agent will not likely not find it with Frank, but we were pleased with him and would work with him again. He's a really nice fellow.
There are such things as happy accidents! I stumbled upon my Realtor, Frank Campbell, totally by accident and I couldn't be happier! He was amazing! He was professional, courteous, patient, knowledgeable and every other positive word you could think of to describe someone. We dealt with a few Realtors before Frank and they were so bad we were thinking about not using one at all - Frank changed all of that! I would recommend him to all my friends and family without hesitation. Thanks Frank!
This was home purchase #7 for me and it was definitely a great experience using Frank Campbell of the Joe Hayden Real Estate Team. Thank you for that. I have nothing negative to say. In fact, I've already shared your contact information. As you'll recall, the first house I looked at resulted in a deal that went nowhere. Following that, you engaged me in conversation, listened to what I had to say and generated a list of potentials that proved to successfully convey the winner. I've never had that before.
So, in short, keep up the excellent work and THANK YOU.
I worked with Ashley Deskins for my first home buying experience. She knew what kinds of things I needed to be looking for in a first home. She steered me in the perfect direction and found the absolutely PERFECT home. Believe me, I am not easy to please either! I was dreading the whole process, but she made it very easy. At the end, I was left saying "Is that it?!" despite hearing how hectic it can be. She was incredibly speedy and knew the market much better than me. I have recommended her and the Joe Hayden Real Estate Team to all my friends and coworkers.
Joseph and Kelsey Medcraft
Our first time home buying experience with Ashley Deskins was great! She knows the market well and was able to get to know us, so that we could find the perfect place. She took a process that is often viewed as overbearing and stressful, and turned it into a surprisingly easy experience. We were able to find the perfect home within a matter of weeks, thanks to Ashley's promptness, professionalism and patience. It was truly an honor to be able to work with such an outstanding Realtor and friend. 5/5 stars for sure!

Dear Mr. Hayden, We would like to commend you for having Ashley Deskins as an agent. She helped us find the property, a condominium, for our granddaughter. She gave us so much time and gathered information so quickly and so well. She was courteous, patient, understanding and was a joy to work with. We are certain agents like her are not easy to find. Ashley was great and we wanted you to know. Sincerely, Mr. & Mrs. Thomas McBride
