Gwen Williamson Mathews continually exceeds client expectations by providing outstanding service with strong marketing and negotiating skills. Her ability to listen, find solutions and attend to details ensures a smooth transaction for clients from start to finish.
Gwen is a native Lexingtonian who graduated cum laude from Transylvania University and left home to earn a master's degree in higher education administration and counseling at The University of South Carolina. After working for several years as a college administrator at both The Savannah College of Art and Design and the University of South Carolina, Gwen happily returned to Lexington in 1990 to pursue a career as a development director at her alma mater raising millions of dollars for the University and later serving as an administrator and counselor in the department of student life. At the same time, she wisely began investing in real estate and discovered a true passion for helping others with their own real estate purchases. When Gwen made the decision more than 15 years ago to pursue a full-time career in real estate, she quickly earned numerous accolades including Rookie of the Year, Top Producers Club membership and she was recognized by the Quality Service Certified Organization as one of the top agents in the United States. Locally, Gwen was voted one of Lexington's favorite Realtors in the Lexington Herald-Leader Readers' Choice awards. Awards are nice, but Gwen finds the best reward is repeat clients who become lifelong friends. Former clients cite her knowledge of the community, practical advice, honesty and sense of humor as making the home buying and selling process a great experience.
Gwen is Central Kentucky’s biggest cheerleader and has loved raising her own family in the Bluegrass. Her son and daughter attended Lexington public schools, attended college out of state and recently returned home to Lexington, one to pursue career opportunities and the other attending law school at the University of Kentucky.
An active leader and volunteer with many community organizations over her years in Lexington, Gwen especially enjoys helping clients new to Lexington find not only a house but a home in Central Kentucky. She is an avid runner, yoga enthusiast, reader, and knitter and loves nothing better than hiking the Red River Gorge with her husband, children and their big yellow Lab. Be sure and ask her about her favorite local hiking spots and yarn stores!

“Gwen Mathews was very professional as well as personable. We found her to be extremely responsive to any of our needs or concerns. It was a pleasure to work with her and we would highly recommend her to anyone.” -Paula and David M. Harrodsburg, KY (sold home in Lexington)
“I moved to Lexington from Chicago and Gwen was a great resource in my relocation. She took a sincere interest in introducing me to Lexington and besides being a great agent, she’s a great tour guide. Gwen worked very hard to locate properties within my range and interest, and she was great at making appointments for visits. Gwen had answers to every question I had and even had answers to questions I didn’t know I had! She made my move to Lexington as seamless as possible, and treated me with respect and as a friend.” -George C. Villarreal Lexington, KY
