Get to Know Rick Shaw Realtors


Our History


Salesmen are born, not made.


That statement has, for so long, defined our greatest asset to this profession, our role model in our vision, and the title character of our business: Mr. Rick Shaw.


Rick’s career in selling goes as far back to when he was a market-green first grader attending Camp Taylor Elementary School. Enraptured by the entrepreneurial spirit, little Rick bought 144 balloons for a half-cent each and sold them for a penny each. The dream only grew from there. Rick later sold pot holders, plums, and walnuts using a similar monetary formula. As a junior Boy Scout, he was more determined to sell tickets to a Scout-O-Rama than any of the other boys in his troop. And, gosh-dangit, he did. 


In college, Rick’s sales zeal blossomed as he sold flag pins at the University of Kentucky while simultaneously working towards his master’s degree in mathematics. Once he became a math teacher at Jeffersontown High Schools, his hobby of selling had hatched a fiery passion. Never deficient in merchandise to sell, Rick employed a ready supply of potted flowers and cutting boards to the teaching staff for when they needed a last-minute gift for their coworkers. Rick went on to teach math for another twelve years before he decided to make his dream a reality.

The significance of July 1, 1977 was in Rick’s becoming a licensed agent in Louisville, Kentucky. Many of his first clients were the same teaching colleagues that sought his name after the nickel-and-dime buying-and-selling became less about last-minute gifts and more about the monumentous, personal and life-changing prospect of selling one’s home to move somewhere entirely new and different. Rick’s personality, professionalism, and hard work propelled him to become the company Century-21’s top agent in the state of Kentucky in 1986. In 1987, Rick became the Vice President of Edelen, Edelen & Shaw.

Rick spent 18 years tirelessly and dedicatedly establishing his reputation as one of Louisville’s top real estate agents. In 1995, Rick opened his own brokerage. His vision was a small, locally owned company focused on more personal, eye-to-eye service. And that’s where we began.
