LOUISVILLE, Ky., May 19 /PRNewswire/ — Louisville native John Williamson is poised to remedy the under-serviced marketing aspect of the investment real estate industry by launching Uvestor.com right here in Kentucky this week. 

Uvestor.com is an online investment property marketplace. It supplements the MLS for properties sold in As-Is condition. With more features than any other online resource, Uvestor.com solves some of the frustrations users have had with purchasing these types of properties in the past. Kentucky brokers, realtors, and investors have reacted enthusiastically, as this national platform will debut locally before branching out to 150 different markets. 

Williamson’s entrepreneurial spirit dates back to age 13 when he started a lawn mowing business in his grandmother’s neighborhood. After graduating from Eastern High School and attending college at the University of Kentucky, he took a break from studies and relocated to Salt Lake City, where he first became involved with the real estate industry and also helped launch guerilla marketing campaigns in support of the 2002 Winter Olympic Games. 

After his stint in Utah, Williamson returned to his home state and obtained a BBA in Marketing and International Business from the University of Kentucky. During his senior year, he became president of UK’s Entrepreneurs Club, an organization he continues to support and promote. It was during his time with the Eclub that he initially became involved with web application development.

Subsequently, he was a founding member of 3rd Dimension Design, the CEO of iHigh.com, and the sole proprietor of Whiteboard Enterprises. He has been involved with the real estate industry to varying degrees for the better part of a decade. During five years as an entrepreneur in Lexington, Williamson befriended, partnered with and worked for some of the city’s most successful fellow entrepreneurs. 

In 2008, he returned to Louisville to focus on Uvestor.com, his most ambitious project to date. Though the state has seen fewer startup companies and sluggish job creation in recent years, Williamson has overcome this trend, established a satellite office with team members in Lexington and now has his company ideally situated for a breakout year.

For more information or to schedule an interview, please call John Williamson at 502 619-5145.
