My commitment as your “full time” Realtor is to provide you with the specialized real estate service you deserve. I have been helping individuals in Louisville buy and sell their homes since 2008. I earned the Broker designation in 2014 and enjoy partnering with Grace Patterson on day-to-day real estate transactions

If you are looking to buy a home, I will help to guide you through all phases, from selecting your home to the closing table and all of the many nuances between the two.

Selling a home can be a very stressful process without all of the available tools at your disposal. With my unique home selling system, I will do my best to eliminate any strain and anxiety. My initial goal is to price your home correctly without valuing it too low. My second goal is to be accessible to perspective buyers. Finally, we must keep you up-to-date on our efforts to market your home. Through effective communication, we can achieve all of these goals.

When you are buying or selling property in today’s real estate market, it is important to have confidence in your real estate professional.  Please contact me today to get the process started!

 Very professional and friendly! I couldn't have done it without you.  I felt your support throughout the process.  I experienced your kindness, your generosity of time and knowledge, your attention to detail, your follow up with concerns and follow through with needed changes after the walk-through. Most of all, I was treated with respect....And you both went the extra mile.

Maria Cleary

Steve encouraged and enthusiastically supported my outside-the-box approach to obtaining the Holy Grail – a buildable lot in the Highlands!  I’m particularly impressed with Steve’s negotiation skills, and his instincts with regard to valuation.  Both of these skills were critical in the purchase of our new house and land, and the sale of our home. I have always been very pleased withBreland Group throughout the years; I appreciate the whole group’s responsiveness and the sense of genuine fair play.  I will continue to recommend Breland Group to my friends and family.

Madeleine Arnold

We were very satisfied with the work you and Grace did on our behalf. You both went above and beyond to make sure our interests were represented. Both of you kept in close contact providing information and support throughout the whole process. We would highly recommend your services to prospective clients.

Laura Jones

Steve and Grace are a dynamic duo! After a lengthy initial conversation with Steve he honed in on exactly the type property I was looking for. Taking that time in the beginning, we were able to look at just a few properties to find the perfect fit for my needs! Steve has the heart of a teacher and was extremely patient answering all my questions in detail. He was always extremely responsive and navigated me through some very unique and unusual circumstances with ease. In the few months we worked together, if Steve was unavailable Grace seamlessly stepped in to assist, evidence of the outstanding communication within this team. When needed, Grace also served as great resource for second opinions with her wealth of experience. Steve and Grace, you were a pleasure to work with, thank you for all your assistance! I look forward to working with you again in the future!

Joy Williams

My family appreciates all the attention and hard work from Steve Hughes and Grace Patterson of the Breland Group in selling our parents' condo. Their professionalism and patience eased the process of navigating real estate requirements and guardianship court protocols. I highly recommend their services and look forward to working with them in the future.

Chrissy Marzano

Working with Steve and Grace was one of the best decisions I ever made throughout the home buying process. I was a first time home buyer, a single mom raising a toddler and working full-time in the technology industry. I just wanted someone who could help me understand the process and be there for me every step of the way. I walked into Steve's office overwhelmed and to be honest, fearful of the whole process. I left Steve's office reassured and ready to embrace the excitement of finding the house I would call home. Both Steve and Grace were available whenever I had questions or concerns. They fit the home search process within my availability and always kept my best interest at the forefront. It amazed me how they both knew when to step in and provide context or opinion, but also knew when to step back and let me see things for myself. I am now a proud owner of my first home and have already recommended them to two of my closest friends who are about to be first time home owners themselves because of Grace and Steve. I can't say enough good things about my experience with them and will be forever grateful for all they have done for me.

Daniel Lee

Service was excellent, as expected.

Jonathan Gannon

I couldn’t have been happier with the job that Steve and Grace did.  I didn’t have to worry about anything at all, which was exactly what I needed being halfway across the country through the whole process.

The only complaint I have is that they aren’t able to help me buy a house in NJ…

I will absolutely not hesitate to recommend them to anyone I know that may be moving out to the KY area.

Nick Barte & Lauren Ishmael

The service we received from Steve and Grace was phenomenal! Grace searched for months for the perfect house for us. Once our offer was accepted, they worked nonstop to get us in the house under a very short timeline. They sacrificed a lot to make our dreams come true. I couldn't have asked for a better team to help with the purchase of our first home.

Zachary Warren

Steve and Grace did a tremendous job walking us through the process of buying and selling our house. They give honest and needed feedback to make sure you make the right decision for one of the biggest decisions of your life. I would and have recommended them to friends and families.

Matthew Thomasson

Grace and Steve made my home purchasing experience completely comfortable and stress free. They are a great team of professionals. Couldn't have been happier with them and their financing team.

Bradley Gibson

Steve and Grace did a thorough job of helping us sell our house. They started well in advance, identifying the biggest issues we would need to address before listing the house on the market. They checked up on us regularly to make sure things were progressing as need be. The house was listed and sold within 1 day, a decision they helped us navigate with confidence. We would recommend them to anybody in Louisville who wants a professional realtor who will make sure you make wise decisions in buying or selling a home.

Meagan Stokes

I was in great hands with Steve and Grace. As a first time homebuyer I had a lot of questions and hesitations. They were both very patient and helpful. Most importantly, they were quick to respond. There's nothing worse than a realtor who isn't responsive, especially in a Seller's market. I'm now living in my dream home! My favorite question to ask Steve or Grace was "Would you live here?" And they were always honest with me. I wouldn't ask anyone else to help me search for a house next time. Steve and Grace for the win.

Jared Meyer

Steve brought everything to the table when it came to finding the right home for me. He was very smart about how to figure out my personal tastes in home by taking what I wanted verbally but then applying it when he searched for possible homes. Most of the time he would judge my reaction when we would tour a home with me and use it to better pick what particular things I keep noticing in homes that I would never mention up front. After finding the perfect home and in the style I was originally looking for he brought his best in the negotiating portion. I was actually fine with what I intended on paying but Steve brought it down to a low that I did not even think was possible. All in all Steve walked me through perfectly from start to finish in my first home purchase here in Louisville. 

Mike & Kris Hanrahan

Steve Hughes is great! We decided to rent our home during the cold real estate market. Steve found a renter, and kept our home rented and well maintained while we were living out of state for 4 years. This past summer we put it back on the market and Steve was able to negotiate a sale for a good price. He kept us very informed and dealt skillfully with a difficult out-of-state buyer, which included several after-hours calls and legal questions Steve was able to get answered, and always patient and professional. We definitely recommend Steve to anyone with real estate needs.

Jason Lundquist

Steve helped me buy my house last year and he was so helpful and patient with me. I felt like I kept changing what I was looking for and he kept up with me and was encouraging along the way. When I got cold feet about my first interest he was very receptive and even encouraging when I told him I wanted to change my mind and start looking in a different neighborhood. Once we found the house the process of inspecting and buying went so smooth and easy and I know Steve was working hard to make sure that it would. Thanks Steve!

Bill & Helen Millhollan

We found ourselves, along with our agent Steve, involved in a very unusual and on-going real estate situation, which required much research and numerous telephone calls and e-mails over a period of many months.  Steve was very knowledgeable, diligent, patient, and caring throughout the entire process, and in the end a very satisfactory result was obtained.  Thanks, Steve, we are still appreciating all your good efforts!

John Hudson

We had struggled to sell our house in the worst of the real estate market. We were fortunate to find Steve and list our house with him. We listed, we sold, we profited. Thanks Steve

Darrell Brown

Steve is an amazing realtor!! Buying a new home and selling your current home at the same time is extremely stressful. Steve was more than helpful answering all questions and making sure all areas of both transactions were fully covered. Steve went above and beyond and responded very quickly when loose ends needed to be tied up. I am glad that Steve was a part of this huge experience in our life and I would highly recommend Steve to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home!

Shawna David

Faced with the daunting task of selling my fathers home after his passing and coming to the realization that the home was valued at less than the remaining mortgage, Steve came to the rescue! Not only did Steve work directly with the mortgage company to hasten their acceptance of a short sale but he also worked directly with various companies to make necessary repairs to the home prior to listing it. Steve went above and beyond to help move the sale forward and prepare the house. I can’t imagine having to go through this with any other agent. Steve’s commitment to helping his clients and unwavering professionalism makes him the best of the best. I would highly recommend Steve to anyone looking to buy or sell in the area.

The Priddy Family

We were nervous about selling our home, all of the work ahead of us to prepare was simply daunting, we were unsure of the market, and had jobs and toddlers to juggle on top of it all. Steve came for a tour of our home, and room by room he gave us his objective advice on minimal upgrades and repairs that would allow us to prepare to sell. I was shocked and relieved to see that his advice actually SHORTENED our list! Steve patiently waited for us to prepare and checked in with us from time to time to provide encouragement and kudos for the work we accomplished. He made special trips to the home to see the progress and began to gather measurements and photos for the listing. Throughout the process of selling and buying concurrently, Steve spent countless hours with us (some behind the scenes prep work, and some 1x1 time). Despite having a large client base at the time, he always made us feel like we were his #1 clients! He was quick to respond, made himself accessible at all hours of the day for questions, and worked effortlessly to find us the right financial advisor, appraiser, inspectors, etc. He took a personal interest in finding us the best! Once we gave Steve the thumbs up to list our home, we had a contract 2 weeks later!!! Steve even called us mere hours after surgery to give us the good news, sharing in the excitement! Talk about a devoted realtor! The listing was impressive, especially for our modest little home! The new home we purchased for our growing family turned out to be one that Steve personally selected. It met all of our needs and exceeded our expectations in so many ways! We will be grateful to Steve for years to come! Throughout the process, Steve utilized an electronic signature application that allowed us the convenience of signing various documents from a phone or computer. In such a time sensitive industry, this really sped up the process and prevented us from driving just to sign papers!! Even if you are feeling overwhelmed about the condition of your home or the real estate market, as we were, I recommend without hesitation that you call Steve and just get those conversations started!

Jennifer Clark

Selling a home can be a very stressful event in one's life, but Steve Hughes was an amazing agent to work with, consistently bringing in interested buyers. He was always available to answer questions and help make the process as relaxed as possible.

Larry Packett, Attorney

I had the pleasure of having Steve Hughes assist me as a realtor in selling a property in Louisville on behalf of a client. I found Steve to be courteous, prompt, and efficient in getting the job done. He went about and beyond the call of duty in all ways

Geoff & Akiko Clemens

We had a wonderful experience working with Steve Hughes as our realtor. He was persistent and his advice was always true and on target. When it comes time to buy or sell another home, we will be excited to work with Steve again

Michael Simms

I had an excellent experience dealing with Steve Hughes in buying my first home last September. First, Steve was very personable, pleasant, and responsive to my needs. My work schedule varies from week-to-week and I was attending school at the time. Whenever I needed to meet with him around my busy schedule, he was available to meet. Through the entire search process, Steve was diligent, but patient, and helped me get what I wanted. Steve is very professional and reliable and we communicated very well throughout the process.

Daniel Lee

Buying a home is the largest purchase a person will make in their life. Steve gave me very professional and sometimes personal advice on purchasing my home. I would not work with anyone else.

Tracy Keller

There are a lot of decisions that go into buying a home. As a first-time home buyer, I worried I was getting in over my head! Steve served as my calming voice of reason providing much needed guidance and advice every step of the way. From starting my home search to what to consider in a new home purchase and even navigating the financing process, Steve was a pillar of knowledge and support. And, Steve knows houses (what goes into good construction, home buyer red flags, market trends, etc.)! He gave me confidence that I was making a sound decision and excellent purchase. He never strayed from his mission of finding me my own special place to call home, and I couldn't be happier with the results. I highly recommend Steve’s services to anyone looking for a realtor in the Louisville area!

Kendra & Anthony

Buying a home is the most stressful and exciting decision we have made and Steve became more then simply an agent; he became a friend. Being first time home buyers we didn't have a clue what to expect and he helped us navigate the process each step of the way. My husband and I had totally different expectations in a home and he helped us find the perfect fit for us both! Thanks Steve!

Brianne Wolf

I had no idea that buying a house would require jumping through so many hoops. Steve Hughes makes the process run smoothly and goes way above and beyond a realtors job duties. He approaches things with enthusiasm and honesty but without his patience I would not be the home owner that I am now and could not be happier with my purchase.

Mike Van Arsdale

Steve came highly recommended from a well-respected individual in the real estate property management industry here in Louisville. Over the past 6 months we have worked with Steve on three separate projects. Steve helped us locate and begin navigating an investment property in December of 2013, and although the deal ultimately fell through (no fault of Steve) the amount of patience and work he put into this extremely small initiative set our expectations for the level of service we would receive moving forward. After deciding to put our house on the market and move to a new location closer to the city choosing Steve to represent us was a no-brainer. He worked just as hard to sell our property and negotiate the home-buying process as we anticipated! I would recommend Steve to anyone looking to sell and/or purchase a home or investment property.
