"Pretty Good Agents," Pete and Diane are Louisville natives with many, many years of marketing experience. They take the business of buying or selling your home seriously, but believe it's great when you can have fun along the way. Their eagerness to work hard to understand the market and help people get what they want, plus their attention to detail, give clients the confidence they need in order to relax and enjoy the process.
Pete and Diane get a kick out of meeting new clients as well as having the chance to work with old friends. They love the fun group of entrepreneurial professionals at Kentucky Select who well deserve their reputation for Trusted Direction in Real Estate.
Pete grew up in Crescent Hill and Diane, née O'Callaghan, grew up in the Highlands. After meeting in New York City and getting married, they moved back to Louisville, bought the Highlands home they still live in and raised four children.
Pete attended Second Presbyterian Preschool, Crescent Hill Presbyterian Kindergarten, Emmet Field Elementary, Barret Junior High and Atherton before graduating from Kentucky Country Day School. He played lacrosse for Yale, where he earned his undergraduate degree. He received an MBA from the Tuck School at Dartmouth.
Diane attended St. Agnes, Atherton High School and graduated from Louisville Collegiate School. She played field hockey and tennis in high school and at Manhattanville College where she won high scorer and MVP awards for field hockey and received the President’s Prize for overall contribution to college life.
Pete serves on the Cherokee Triangle Association Board of Trustees, The Hannah Foundation board, acts as a mentor with Teach Kentucky and Bulldogs In The Bluegrass plus volunteers to interview high school students applying to Yale. Pete enjoys his monthly Monday Club adventures in the Kentucky woods and driving his old red convertible.
Diane is a volunteer with Collegiate Second Century Campaign and serves on the Alumni Board. Down time for Diane is spent reading and cooking, taking power walks in Cherokee Park with the family’s Pretty Good Lab, Jake, and sweating through a variety of hot yoga classes. If you want to talk real estate, have questions about your home or just want to join Diane in a yoga workout, she would love to hear from you!
One of the best clients ever...
One day a couple walked past me as I was sweeping a sidewalk at home with one of my for sale signs in the yard. The couple smiled, said hi and walked on by. A few steps on, she spoke to him, he nodded. They stopped and turned around. They asked what I was doing. I explained that the sellers had young children and had not had time to tidy up before the coming showing. So I volunteered. That was all they needed to hear. I sold their condo, helped them buy a house, found a realtor to sell their out-of-state mountain home, helped her sister's neighbor sell her home. Sold her sister's home and helped her sister buy a new home. I think the original client is now thinking about moving again. Maybe she'll call me...
