Our History

About  Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices de Movellan Properties

The original company was founded in 1967 by current owner and principal broker Tony de Movellan. His son, Anthony de Movellan, the operations manager, has been with the company for 26 years.  In 1973, the company became known as A.S. de Movellan Real Estate, Inc., and quickly gained a reputation as one of the most highly respected and sought after real estate firms in Central Kentucky.  In May of 1989, the company became an affiliate of Prudential Real Estate affiliates and operated for 25 years as Prudential A.S. de Movellan Real Estate.

On February 25, 2014, the company became Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices de Movellan Properties. The seeds for this new era were sown when Berkshire Hathaway, one of the most respected companies in the world, acquired Prudential Real Estate Affiliates with the aim of building the best real estate franchise system in the world.

We are proud to be serving our clients since 1967!

Our Value System

Uncompromised Integrity

We believe maintaining the highest level of personal and professional integrity throughout our dealings with clients, competitors, and vendors is the most effective way to ensure the continued success of our business. We believe financial success and integrity are complimentary. We strive to instill this belief in all our associates through example and training.

Personal Service

Each customer has a unique set of wants and needs. Each should be serviced personally, seeking to satisfy those particular wants and needs. Our policies and procedures encourage customized approaches which are not limited to the "traditional". We respect and remain sensitive that the home selling and buying process is more than a transaction, but is an emotional decision for the individual and/or family. We appreciate this investment will probably be the largest of their lives and we must service them so they may make informed decisions.


We are a team: knowledgeable in our profession, adhering to the highest professional and ethical standards, conducting ourselves in a considerate manner towards others, and accountable to those we serve. We recognize honest mistakes come with pushing to be your best and they create opportunities for growth. We understand and appreciate we each accomplish similar goals in different ways. We treat clients, customers, competitors, and vendors with the respect they command for themselves and we strive to earn their respect in return.

To Be the Very Best

Our three guiding principles are not market sensitive: Professionalism, personal Service, and Uncompromised Integrity have been the foundation of our business for over twenty-five years. We build upon this foundation with training, recruiting assertive sales associates, and an objective review of our business on a regular basis. We constantly strive to improve upon the quality of our service and every day we earn the sterling reputation for which we have become known.
