About Joan Pauly

Over the years, I've had many mentors show me the impact the built environment has on our environment and psyche (both negative and positive). My sustainability career started with PlaceMakers, a sustainable land planning firm and then as the first Executive Director for the Kentucky Chapter of the U.S. Green Building Council. I expanded my understanding of sustainability working with the utopia that is Berea College, heading up the Office of Sustainability and launching programs that addressed alternative transportation, waste diversion, greenhouse gas tracking, and more.. While it was hard to leave this utopia, I have gone back to my real estate development, construction, and sales roots. 


I plan to use what I’ve  learned over the decades to help find or build your dream home that saves you money with reduced energy bills, provides the peace of mind that comes from living in a healthy home, and the satisfaction of knowing that the 21st century building techniques we used to build your home provided a lighter environmental footprint  (if you choose new construction).


It’s not easy to find residential real estate that achieves these goals in addition to a host of other needs you have, but that’s why I’m here!  Let’s find or build a sustainable, healthy home for you to call home. 


What makes me different

I love a beautifully designed home, but I’m going to ask questions about what’s behind that pretty wall in terms of insulation and the U-Factor of the windows, whether that gorgeous appliance package is Energy Star Certified and the cool looking cabinets are ESP Certified…if those beautiful floors are FloorScore or GreenGuard Certified, and if the lovely facets are WaterSense labeled for high performance.  You enjoy the search that speaks to your soul.  I’ll be out back kicking the tires for you.


Find My Home

Browse current listings in Kentucky.  See something you like, let me know.  If you are looking outside Kentucky, I can help.

Build My Home

If you can’t find that perfect home under current listings, building could be the solution.  If you are interested in living in a beautifully designed, open floor plan, Net Zero Energy Ready, EPA Indoor Airplus Qualified Home using 21st Century building techniques and offsite construction efficiency, I have multiple floor plans to fit every size and budget.
