With over 20 plus years in the insurance industry as a State Farm agent, manager, and claim specialists, and as the founder of an investment property holding company, Erik brings years of relevant technical experience to the process of buying and selling real estate for his clients.

 “I want to help people make their dreams happen. That means being the go-to person for every client, bringing expertise and experience, and above all, integrity, to making one of the most important transactions they will make...buying or selling a home…as simple, effective and enjoyable as possible.”   

                 Erik’s Mission Statement

Real estate for Erik is a continuation of his long service to people in insurance, and an integral part of helping people fulfill their dreams of home ownership.  Home ownership is a foundation on which families grow, where children perform better in school and have better health, where the home provides familial and community stability, and homeownership builds wealth to transfer and better the next generations. When you work with Erik, he will use RE/MAX's industry leading business model and technology to help you reach your own dreams for yourself and your family. 

Erik grew up in a family of four with two parents who built a State Farm agency in La Grange over 43 years, where Erik learned the value of a strong work ethic and of always placing clients’ needs first.  Erik’s focus will never be on how many homes he can sell, but rather on building lasting relationships with his clients across generations, as he did in his 21 years of insurance.

Erik is a graduate of Eastern Kentucky University, and worked in Germany and England for three years after obtaining his undergraduate degree, before returning to Kentucky and to insurance.

Along the way Erik built a large rental portfolio of his own and gained deep knowledge of the trades, technical aspects, and the cost to renovate and repair homes. He now combines these accumulated skills to help clients buying and selling their homes. Having moved 14 times while in Europe and later with State Farm, Erik understands the importance and complexities of finding the right home.

Erik is married to Carla Dearing, and together they have a blended family of four adult children.  Erik and Carla are foodies, avid cyclists and runners, and enjoy traveling and exploring other cultures. 

Erik's Family


Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value  Eric Shultz was our agent, and did an amazing job of helping us
find our new home, walking us through the entire process, and giving us good advice on a variety of aspects of the house buying process. We could recommend him to anyone looking for a home in the Louisville, KY, area. He was available 24/7 and responded quickly to our questions and responses. Truly a great agent!

I simply cannot express the difference Erik Shultz made in our search for a new home in a new city. His steadiness in guiding us through this crazy market period helped my wife and I to not give up on our wish to move here.
He always made us feel as though we belonged here and that with patience, discernment and perseverance we would find the right home for us.

Erik Shultz just happened to be the realtor who showed up for the first showing of a patio home we found on Zillow. Lucky us! He turned out to be a wonderful advocate for us throughout the process. Erik was honest and transparent every step of the way. He was always organized, prepared, and went above and beyond to gather all the information we needed to make the right decisions. Erik was prompt and responsive with all communication and walked us through from that initial showing right through closing and beyond. We highly recommend him and would not hesitate to call upon him again should the need arise.
