Our Team of Real Estate Experts

At Pluris Realty, we flat out deliver for our clients.  Here is what some of our clients have to say….

We would like to thank Colin Underhill and the Pluris team for their outstanding service in helping us secure our most recent warehouse facility in Louisville. Their first step was understanding our needs and goals, then together we began exploring available options. As with any transaction, we realized some hurdles while trying to find the right space for our expansion needs. The Pluris Team was diligent, creative, and spent tireless hours helping us negotiate the lease and we appreciate the way that they balanced the interests of both buyer and seller. Thank you, Pluris, for all of the hard work you put into making this transaction come together.
