About Layne


In what year did you begin working in the real estate industry as a REALTOR®?
1974

Why do you like working in the real estate industry?
The personal relationships you build in the real estate industry are incredible. From the first time home buyer to the 3rd or 4th home you've sold for a client are all so special. Your clients become your friends.

In what year did you become affiliated with Semonin Realtors®?
2013

Why do you choose to affiliate your business with Semonin?
I'd always been affiliated with small local companies. After serving the Kentucky Court System for over 30 years I decided I wanted to work with the best company in Kentucky. Over the years I'd always worked with Semonin agents on cross sales and felt it was the best fit. Never even talked to any other companies.

What sets you apart from other REALTORS®? What are your greatest strengths as a real estate agent?
After 45 years in the real estate industry I feel I've probably been there and done that. Working with people has always been my passion.

What do you do to stay up-to-date/knowledgeable about the real estate industry?
Everyday is a learning experience in real estate. Reading and keeping up-to-date is a must these days. Semonin offers incredible education opportunities almost daily.

What did you do before you began working in real estate? Has anything you learned on that/those jobs helped you with your real estate business? If so, what/how?
I started working in the court system in 1976 helping people navigate the complex legal system. I served as the Bullitt County Circuit Clerk until 2013. I also served 16 years on the Bullitt County School Board. In each of these jobs helping the citizens was a priority.

Tell us about your immediate family. Who are they? Do you enjoy spending time together? If so, what do you do together?
My wife Laurie is a 1st grade teacher at Spencer County Elementary. We've been married 44 years and have 3 children and 6 grandchildren. We love vacationing together at the beach and spending time in the mountains around Gatlinburg.

What do you enjoy doing in your free time? Why do you enjoy this?
While free time is hard to come by, I love playing golf with my sons and family. It's fun just to spend those hours hearing about their lives and grandchildren.
