EXPERIENCE: I have extensive experience dealing with real estate transactions and real estate title issues. Prior to getting into the sales side of the real estate world, I spent nearly five years as staff attorney for one of the largest independent real estate title insurance agencies in Indiana. In addition to providing legal counsel on all title and closing matters internally, I routinely advised real estate agents and brokers, mortgage brokers, and lenders. I have closed countless real estate transactions of all types and sizes.
My passion for sales and desire to help clients buy and sell real estate compelled me to get my broker's license, and transition the focus of my business to sales and marketing. I started my brokerage services in January of 2011, and reached record sales levels immediately. I have consistently reached the highest sales levels every year, and am not only one of the top realtors in the county, but am also one of the top producing brokers statewide.
EDUCATION: I received a Bachelor of Arts degree from Indiana University, Bloomington, and received my Doctorate of Jurisprudence from Indiana University School of Law, Indianapolis. I am admitted to the Indiana State Bar.
PROFESSIONAL ASSOCIATIONS: I am a member of the Southern Indiana Association of Realtors, the National Association of Realtors, the Indiana Bar Association, and the Dubois County Bar Association (President 2011).

"Steve was fantastic to have for a realtor. As people who expect great service. Steve went above and beyond our expectations. He understands the value of marketing and promoting his listings because he has his own website. In a tough market, Steve was able to help us find a buyer who saw the value in our home and offered us full list price; Therefore we were able to retain our equity that we built. As a third time home seller in Dubois county, we would recommend Steve to anyone, whether you are buying or selling."

"Some real estate brokers these days seem akin to glorified chauffeurs, with limited knowledge of local code and tax laws, who just tour the available homes, waiting to collect their commission. I employed Steve's services because he proved to be knowledgeable of the local market, understood and was able to communicate how property taxes in the area are calculated, and went to work to find answers to the questions I had. When there was search functionality that I desired, missing from his website, he contacted his developer and added the functionality the same day so I could search by the parameters I wanted! Steve was a solid advisor through the process and earned his commission. If the need arises again for a broker in the area, he will be the first call I make."
"Working with Steve was a pleasure. He came recommended and did not disappoint. Steve is a good communicator and helped us sell a difficult home during a difficult real estate market. As my family considers building a new home, Steve has been of service to us. We look forward to using his expertise to make the process a smooth one."
"Since we were moving out of town it was important to us to find a Realtor who we could be in contact with easily. Steve kept us in the loop, responded to questions in a timely manner and helped us figure out every step of the way."

"Steve Lukemeyer has helped me and my business to find our current warehouse and office location as well as sell my house, warehouse, and office building. Steve is the ultimate professional and has done a wonderful job helping me, my family, and my business with all of its real estate needs and I would highly recommend him."
"We met Steve at an open house. He greeted us with a smile and a hand shake. We immediately felt good about him as a realtor. When we found out he was also a real estate attorney, we knew we were in good hands. Throughout the process of looking at homes and finally picking one, he answered questions and demonstrated his knowledge. We were first time home buyers. Having a realtor we trusted was very important to us. We would recommend Steve to anyone wanting to buy a home."
