Mary Ellen Wood Seeks out Dog-friendly Dwellings for Clients


As a Realtor, Mary Ellen Wood of Louisville's Homestead Real Estate, LLC, routinely hosts clients toshowings of available properties on the market. What's different about Wood's service is that she adeptly recommends dog-friendly properties for those who consider the family pet in a home purchase.

Wood, owner of a Golden Retriever named Tonka, said that those on the market for a new home have to consider whether the new space will be right for the whole family, including canines. Many condos and townhomes have dog height and weight limitations, which takes some developments out of consideration. For dogs requiring a lot of activity, nearby Open Space, dog parks, trails, and "walkability" has to be taken into account.

"Many families believe their pet is part of the family. Dogscreate a special circumstance in potential home purchases," Wood explained. "Not only do the homeowners have to consider schools and neighborhoods for their children, they really do think about whether the property is amenable to their pet."

Wood seeks out available properties that match the homeowner's needs and cross-matches the listing with dog-friendly amenities to help the buyer locate the right real estate for their lifestyle.
