What our partners are saying

Eddie BurkeHome Buyer

Jordan was prepared, communicative, and prompt throughout our complex real estate transaction. She handled challenging situations with professionalism and transparency, representing her client's best interests passionately. Jordan's ability to navigate difficult moments ensured the deal reached the closing table. I highly recommend her and look forward to working with her again.

Charles W. PriceHome Buyer And Seller

Working with Meredith was honestly one of the best decisions we ever made. Having worked with Pluris on multiple occasions, we are certain there is no real estate team in Louisville that can better meet a homeowner’s needs. From start to finish, they manage the entire process. There was never a moment in the entire sales process where we questioned anything they told us. They put our interests before theirs the whole time. We wouldn’t recommend using any team other than Pluris to aid in buying or selling a home!

Jessica LosekeHome Buyer And Seller

We highly recommend Jordan King and the Pluris team! Jordan's exceptional patience and keen market knowledge helped us find the perfect home in Louisville. Her expert negotiation skills ensured we got the best deal in a competitive market. Jordan went above and beyond by introducing us to our new community, making our relocation smooth and enjoyable. We trust Jordan and the Pluris team for years to come.

Amanda EckmannHome Buyer And Seller

Working with Jordan was absolutely game-changing! From the moment we decided to sell our house and find a new home, she was there every step of the way, guiding us with expertise, patience, and unwavering support.
What truly sets Jordan apart is her genuine care and dedication to her clients. She didn't just see us as another transaction; she treated us like family, going above and beyond to ensure our happiness and satisfaction. She helped us get our home ready to sell and spent so much time helping us purge/stage our home.
When it came to finding our new home, Jordan was always available to answer our questions, address our concerns, and provide valuable insights, making the entire process smooth and stress-free.
