We are incredibly thankful for the people, and success of LREI, and whether you’re a tenant, investor or realtor, we hope to count you as one of our future success stories! Starting small in August 2017, we had no idea that we would grow as fast and strong as we did.
We now manage more than 200 properties with a team that still feels like family. We’re not shy about this success because it’s driven by our philosophy to help people and provide exceptional service.
LREI began in 2003 when Owner and founder Clay Smith and Stephanie Smith purchased their first rental property. In 2017 they set out to create a property management company that offered valuable service at an affordable price that owners can trust in.
The original idea for developing a Louisville property management company came to through experience managing real estate without systems and teams. Having heard horror stories of companies that were impossible to reach, return voicemails a week later, or send an email instead of calling. Companies had extensive repair costs and a terrible track record for keeping tenants. When they needed to delegate management of their 30 properties and free up time to start a company they decided to start their own company.
The industry needed professionals who offered great customer service, honesty and a strong work ethic. LREI was created from this initial dream. Since then, the company has grown to manage 200 properties in just one year because of client referrals and proven track record. The secret recipe is great systems where nothing falls through the cracks and an enthusiastic staff who loves property management.
The owners of LREI have been investing since 2003 and pride themselves as leaders in our local real estate market and the property management community. They are active members of KREIA (Kentuckiana Real Estate Investor Association) community and stay current on the latest property management industry trends.
When you join LREI, you get the power of an entire, personable team whose sole aim is to help and delight you.
They love to solve problems and enjoy being able to help tenants and owners at the same time. But they also have a wide variety of other passions and interests.
