PROSPECT, Ky. — Colleen E. Walker, CRS, GRI, has joined eXp Realty, LLC of eXp World Holdings, Inc. creating the Group of Kentucky, representing and selling luxury homes in the region.
She was recently awarded the certification for Luxury Home Marketing Specialist by the Institute for Luxury Home Marketing, as well as the 2019 Certificate of Professional Excellence by the Greater Louisville Association of Realtors (GLAR). Walker was one of the first 35 in the area to receive this CPE designation from GLAR. This professional trade association represents more than 4,000 members involved in the real estate profession.
“Colleen was one of the early participants in the CPE training and it was designed to raise the bar for the real estate professionals who have been in business for awhile,” said Ashley Parker, Parker & Klein Real Estate, who served on the GLAR CPE Committee, and was an instructor.
Walker has spent more than 20 years selling luxury residential real estate in Prospect, Ky. and the surrounding areas. She is an accomplished equestrian participating in polo and fox hunting with her dog, Stuart, by her side. Born and raised in Kentucky, she is a Louisville native who graduated with an MBA from Bellarmine University. In her marketing career, she has lived and worked in five states, focusing on the luxury marketing category.
Formerly at Kentucky Select Properties, Walker also was 1 of 14 realtors that received the REALTOR.com Award of Excellence in 2018, created to recognize top real estate agents across the country that consistently provide great marketing services on behalf of their buyers and sellers. Back in 2013, the Greater Louisville Association of Realtors awarded Walker with its prestigious President’s Award for her contributions to the association, including the conversion of GLAR headquarters to an internet café serving members and clients.
