Bill Justice established Justice Real Estate in 1980 specializing in farm sales. Through Bill's expertise, integrity, and hard work Justice Real Estate is and has been the leader in farm sales in the Bluegrass since the mid-1980's. Long recognized as the most knowledgeable and respected farm broker in Central Kentucky, Bill has handled the sale of some of the most significant farms in this area - Spendthrift, Dixiana, Greentree, Buckland, and Parrish Hill - to name only a very few.
Bill served the Lexington-Bluegrass Association of Realtors as President in 1984, and he was its Realtor of the Year in 1982. He and his wife Tina live in a historic home on Tates Creek Road.
Bill is actively involved in the thoroughbred business - raising, breeding, and racing them. He partners with a lot of his clients in horses and is fortunate enough to own the dam of Champion and Grade I winner, Negligee.
Bill attends most horse sales cultivating clients and bought a home in Saratoga Springs for just that reason. His knowledge of farms and the thoroughbred industry has certainly attributed to his success in farm brokerage.
Bill has been in real estate since 1987 with an emphasis on farm properties. Having grown up on a cattle and crop farm, Bill started showing Western and English pleasure - moving to hunt seat and dressage. She has competed in three day events as well as played polo, fox hunted, broken yearlings, galloped thoroughbreds, and worked with both thoroughbred and standardbred broodmares. Bill attended the University of Kentucky as an art major, but her love of the horse and the great outdoors led her in the direction of the horse industry and her husband Mike. Mike, a thoroughbred horse trainer, came up under the tutelage of Frank Whiteley during the time of Ruffian’s racing career. Bill's experience and continued personal involvement in the different facets of the horse industry give her a common interest with the people she meets and an understanding of their specific needs in assisting them in locating or selling a farm property.

Marilyn graduated from Northwestern University in Louisiana with a double major in Health & Physical Education and Special Education. She grew up on crop and cattle farms where riding horses was a part of farm life. However, showing horses and barrel racing were a major focus. Having a working knowledge of horses and farming has been a valuable asset in selling farms. Marilyn's husband is active in the thoroughbred business, which is also a great resource for Marilyn who enjoys helping people find their special place in the Beautiful Bluegrass Country. She looks forward to meeting new people and treasures her clients who have put their trust in her. We at JUSTICE REAL ESTATE have a motto - treat people the way you want to be treated.

Mary Sue has lived in Lexington since 1995. A native Ohioan, she graduated from Christ Hospital of Nursing and lived in Cincinnati for 30 years working as a Registered Nurse and Realtor. After three years in Aspen, Colorado, as a Realtor and broker of Aspen Premier Properties, she came "home" to Lexington.
Whether a townhome, small farm, or a large property, such as Dixiana, True North, Lobo, or Chaumette, it's the people Mary Sue meets that make it such a rewarding experience. Mary Sue enjoys the excitement of welcoming people to the Bluegrass and finding the property that make them feel THEY have "come home".
Mary Sue has raised and shown American Saddlebred horses for many years and was thrilled when one of her babies won the World Championship in 2008. She and her "Showboats Boogie Man", pictured here, won the Kentucky State Championship in 2007. Mary Sue has served on the board of the Lexington Philharmonic with a special interest in the fund raiser "Horsetails", which was an integral part of the World Equestrian Games featuring horses from each of the eight disciplines.
Mary Sue's three children, five grandchildren, one great-grandchild, and traveling to Colorado and Montana are the ways she spends her "free time".
Sharon grew up on a farm south of Lexington with horses, cattle, and crops. Her early love of horses led her to become a member of the Keeneland Pony Club where she gained insight, appreciation, and love of the beautiful rolling land in Fayette and surrounding counties and the owners. She eventually broke and galloped thoroughbreds for Doug Davis at Keeneland and Ted Carr at Poplar Hill.
Sharon attended UK, married, and, in 1973, moved to a farm in Woodford County where she raised three daughters. She earned a real estate license in 1987 and joined Justice Real Estate in 1990 where she has found that her years of gathering knowledge of land, farming, and people have been invaluable in assisting buyers and sellers.
Sharon resides today in southern Woodford County with her husband Jim, an attorney, in a historic home "Airy Mount" with adjoining Mint Springs Farm, a cattle, crop, and thoroughbred mare/foal operation. When she has some free time, she is off to Ireland to join her two grandchildren or just down the road to spend time with her third grandchild.
Sharon would encourage you to heed one of her favorite quotes: "Buy land, they aren't making it anymore."
Allen arrived in the Bluegrass State in 1971 to attend the University of Kentucky. After graduation, his early interests of agriculture and architecture resulted in the development of one of the most magnificent farms in Central Kentucky - Gainesborough Farm.

A hands-on horseman, Allen has lived in Woodford County for 30 years and was president of the Kentucky Thoroughbred Farm Managers Club.
