Buying a Home in Lexington, KY

Finding and purchasing a home that will meet your needs is a significant and often stressful time. Our goal is to make this transition as smooth as possible. We are experts in the area, and once we learn what it is that you’re looking for, finding your dream home is simple.

Before you start looking for a home you should ask yourself a few questions:

  • Where do you want to live? Are there particular neighborhoods or communities that you like?
  • What kind of house would you like (need)? Are you looking for a particular style? How many bedrooms and bathrooms do you want?
  • Is a home office a necessity? Do you need a bonus room or flex-room?
  • Do you entertain often? Is a home suitable for entertaining something you’re looking for?
  • Do you want a yard, pool, gated or guard gated community?
  • Have you determined your price range or consulted a lender to determine the best price range?

Searching for your dream home can be a time-consuming experience. Working with our professional team will make the process much more efficient!

Buyer Testimonials
Tisha was great. She was available at all times to look at houses (even last minute requests) and to answer any questions. She took care of all appointments for home inspection, termite inspection, etc. I didn't have to worry about anything because she was always one step ahead making sure it was already taken care of. I would highly recommend her as a realtor!
Brandy Winn
Tisha was wonderful to work with. She guided us through the entire process of buying our house, keeping us informed about each step and ensuring that we were never caught off guard by anything. She advocated for us as buyers and asked the sellers for a number of improvements, many of which we would not have thought to ask for without her expert advice. I will certainly recommend Tisha to anyone looking for a local realtor. She is fantastic.
Kathy Swango
Tisha is absolutely the most patient, nice, and knowledgeable realtor ever!!! She is very quick to respond and always right on top of all the listings.
Bethany Fairchild
Tisha Monte is an amazing Real Estate Professional! We listed, showed, and had a contract on our home within 48 hours. The sale closed sooner than had been planned which was to our benefit. Tisha stayed on top of every aspect of the closing process and kept us well informed. The closing went very smoothly. Currently we are building our new home. Tisha is representing us as our buyer agent. Tisha also assisted in helping us find a rental property with our builder while we wait on construction. Tisha is always on top of everything that is going on in our building process and she is always checking on us. We are so glad we found Tisha! She always makes you feel like you are her only client and she's got everything under control. We can't say enough good things about Tisha, we recommend her highly!

We were so Lucky to have had someone like Tisha as our relator! Buying a home is not exactly a "walk in the park" but she made it as easy as it could be for us. She was very supportive durning the whole process and went above and beyond her job duties to make sure we got the home we wanted. Her knowledge of the real estate industry was very helpful, it pointed us to the neighborhoods we wanted to look as well as guided us in the offer/buying process. Communication with your relator is absolutely one of the most important pieces to the buying process. Anytime I called Tisha no matter what the reason ( Questions, wanting to see a property, or even just to talk about the choices we had) she always answered and would openly and honestly give me a response. These days it's hard to find a upstanding and honest relator but we found our perfect lady! I would recommend her to anyone and everyone!
South Lexington
Tisha was awesome!! She's prompt and professional, and she either knows the answer to everything or will quickly find out for you. Her response to any inquiry, any time of day, was almost immediate. We asked a LOT of questions because it was our first time buying a house, and every single time I texted her with something new, she responded cheerfully within just a few minutes. She's great at coordinating and explaining all the "moving pieces" of the home-buying process for you, and she's a great buyer's advocate. (Ex: We were having a lot of trouble communicating with our bank about the mortgage, and she stepped in to make sure we were getting accurate information and could close on schedule.) And on top of it all, she was very friendly and pleasant to work with! We're absolutely giving her a call the next time we move and recommending her to all our friends in the mean time.

Tisha Monte was VERY helpful helping me find the right house for me. She took all me wants and needs in a house and applied it to her selection of houses and found me just what I wanted. She was very responsive to show up at any time I requested for viewings, and I mean any time. As a first time home buyer she was also very helpful at letting me know all the ins and outs of the home buying process as well as providing suggestions for money saving ideas and routes I could take. Always there to answer any questions I had, no matter how absurd they might have sounded.. Definitely made my home buying a much easier and even pleasant experience. I would recommend her to ALL of my family and friends with no questions.. A caring, polite, respectful and professional realtor is very hard to come by and Tish met all of these. She didn't bug me every day trying to sell me a house either, which was the sole reason I got rid of multiple other realtors in the past.. I just don't write a review like this for anybody so this is an honest review from a truthful guy for a hard working realtor. Thanks Tish!!
South Lexington
Tisha treated us like we were her only clients and was available 24/7 to answer questions, research fair prices and provide us with honest feedback. Sh has a way of calming the client during a stressful home buying experience. I would highly reccomend Tisha to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
Tisha was so helpful, very professional, and gave us a very smooth closing process. Being first time homeowners, it was great to work with someone who was very experienced!
Ben and Julie
Tisha's expertise in real-estate, specifically in Lexington, was such an incredible asset to my family when searching for a new home. Tisha not only met us on weekends, but also helped to entertain our 2 children along the way. Her patience, kindness, and willingness to help us find the perfect house, neighborhood, and schools for our family is incomparable. Tisha even helped us to find other financing options that ultimately led to our getting a VERY boastful rate on our mortgage. I could not have asked for a more professional and kind person to assist us in a process that can be very stressful. If we ever decided to sell our home and buy another, there is no one else we would ever consider!

And the winner for best, most amazingly awesome Real Estate Agent EVER in this history of property sales goes to! Tisha Monte! You, my friend are one smart cookie! When we were choosing our lot to build our house, a builder rep took us to the lot with the flooded backyard FIRST. Tisha leans over quietly to me and says, "flood plain." I looked further up-hill and said, "I want that one", Tisha nodded in approval. We are not flooded. smile emoticon Here's a tip for those thinking of building: When choosing a lot, NEVER take the first one they show you. They will try and convince you it's the best, when in reality it's the one they really want to unload on an idiot ASAP. Choose your own lot, and have a knowledgeable Real Estate agent who is working for YOU, like Tisha, to help you make and educated choice. Thank you Tisha Monte!

Rebecca Denny
We would highly recommend Tisha Monte to anyone wanting to purchase property. We appreciate the service and help she provided for us. She made our experience positive from beginning to end. She minimized our travel (we live 2 1/2 hours away) and worked with our last minute schedules. We truly felt she had our best interest at heart and listen to our wants/needs. A special THANK YOU goes to Tisha Monte!!
Lynn & Winona Griggs
Our broker (Tisha) was highly recommended and was an excellent communicator. We are from out of the Lexington area, so we had to depend on her to help with several things. She was trustworthy and treated each task with the highest measures. Very positive from beginning to end!!

Paul Justice
I was 1000 miles away for all but 3 days of the entire process and I could not imagine how this could have gone with someone that did not work like Tisha
Shelly Pierce
Tisha is awesome! My husband and I recently purchased our first home with the help of Tisha, and I’m so grateful to have had her by our side during the process. Tisha is quick to respond to calls/texts and is knowledgeable about the area. She explained the process to us in detail and answered all of our questions. She is honest, trustworthy and a joy to work with. We look forward to working with Tisha again in the future.
Courtney Halbert
Tisha was incredibly helpful in helping us buy our first house. She listened to what we were looking for and didn't try to push anything on us. She was patient and understanding and always available for a text, email, or call. She got us in to see houses and was even able to show us houses that hadn't hit the market yet. Not only was she helpful with finding our house, but she was also extremely helpful with describing the process to help us learn what to expect. We could not have done it without her!
Courtney Napoli
Tisha was amazing. She knows exactly what to do to get your house sold. We had 4 offers the day she listed it. She decorated the kitchen and bathrooms for photos and even helped us sweep and mop before the photographer got there. She was extremely helpful with all the selling documents, and thoroughly answered all of our many questions. I honestly don't know when she sleeps, Tisha has responded to text and emails as late as 11 pm. If you want someone who knows the market, knows the right people, knows how to get top dollar, and puts you first. Look no further Thank you Tisha!!
I would highly recommend Tisha as a realtor. She helped us with the very difficult task of finding an updated townhome without an HOA at a reasonable price in a safe area while staying within a 10min Drive to the University of Kentucky. That is not an easy task! Tisha listened to our needs and is very knowledgable. She was easy to get in touch with and answered all of my many questions. I would definitely use Tisha as my real-estate agent in the future.

Tisha listed our home and posted incredible photos that she took herself, sold our home within 24 hours at the price we wanted. She was highly professional throughout the entire process and is always cheerful and made us feel very comfortable and confident. We recommend her to everyone we know that is in the market for a new home. Tisha just recently sold our son and his new wife a home, they just moved in and are ecstatic with their purchase!
Tisha helped my husband and me buy our house. She was a tremendous resource for us--professional, knowledgeable, available. She answered our questions and helped us negotiate the price. She was also helpful with our closing questions and concerns. I highly recommend her.
Kathy Swango
Tisha is absolutely amazing! She is so great to work with and a great listener. More than that, she made feel comfortable and I instantly felt like I could trust her. She worked hard for me to find the perfect home, taking into consideration the location I wanted and the price I could afford. I recommend Tisha to anyone I know who is buying or selling!
Kendra Thompson
Tisha is amazing. She gently guides you in the right direction without being pushy. She is kind, responsive, and a joy to work with. Would highly recommend!
Tisha is simply the best! She is very thorough, knowledgeable, and so easy to work with. We definitely recommend using her for any residential home buying needs
