About Schuler Bauer Real Estate Services

Welcome to Schuler Bauer Real Estate Services

Schuler Bauer Real Estate Services ERA Powered is a family owned and operated real estate firm that's grown through numerous mergers and acquisitions. The company traces its roots back to 1967, when Buzz Bauer Realtors opened its doors in New Albany. David Bauer continued his father's legacy and helped grow the company. In 1980, Tony Schuler founded Schuler Realty and partnered with DJ Hines. A few years later, Barbara Popp partnered with Tony and DJ to continue the growth and success of the company. In 2010, Barbara sold her shares to focus on growing her real estate sales and serving her community. By the time the two leading companies merged in 2000, each had absorbed a number of smaller firms. This heritage and depth of experience is a significant part of Schuler Bauer’s corporate identity.

As the leadership responsibilities shift to Kurt Schuler and Morgan Bauer Brown, the company's focus on serving the community, providing thoughtful real estate analysis to its clients and increasing opportunities for its agents to succeed continue to be the backbone of Schuler Bauer. 

With five offices and approximately 250 agents, Schuler Bauer Real Estate Services is one of the Greater Louisville metro area's largest independent real estate companies. Primarily a residential firm, Schuler Bauer also offers rental options and assistance with commercial properties. Schuler Bauer ranked second in Business First's Residential Real Estate Firms for number of transactions closed in 2022 for Kentuckiana. In Southern Indiana, Schuler Bauer continues to dominate the marketplace with a 20-25% market share of homes sold. Schuler Bauer’s local focus and ownership sets it apart in a crowded field.

In order to grow and serve more of its clients, Schuler Bauer became a Powered By ERA franchise in 2013. Following the transition, Schuler Bauer Real Estate ERA Powered purchased well-renowned Century 21 Joe Guy Hagan. The merger positioned the company to serve its clients in Southern Indiana, Louisville, Elizabethtown and Radcliff. Schuler Bauer's strategic growth strategy will enable the company to serve more home buyers and sellers in the Kentuckiana and the Heart of Kentucky. 

Over 3,500 clients chose Schuler Bauer to represent their interests in 2022, resulting in over $945 million in closed sales volume. Whether you’re looking for a starter home or a final home, an office suite or a site for an office park, look to Schuler Bauer for all your real estate needs.
