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. Bill lives 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.
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.
Allen's professional horse career began as a groom at Clovelly Farm with the ultimate mentor of farm managers - Lars LaCour. Allen then moved to Shadowlawn Farm as the assistant manager who oversaw the care of over 180 broodmares. He was hired by Gainsborough Farm to manage the horses and aid in the design and development of a one-of-a-kind horse farm. Under Allen's watch Champions Lamttara, Hatoof, and Fantastic Light (just to name a few) were produced at Gainesborough.
Well-known and respected by the equine community, Allen brings a fresh perspective and discerning eye to the clients he represents for Justice Real Estate. A hands-on horseman, Allen has lived in Woodford County for 30 years and was president of the Kentucky Thoroughbred Farm Managers Club. Allen was also honored by being selected as Farm Manager of the Year in 1997.
Allen and his wife Alexandra breed and race horses, so he is well-acquainted with the complex nature of this business that lies beyond the gates of the beautiful farms of Central Kentucky.
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.

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."
