Lisa Bodo-Saunders, ARA, CGRPA-KY
Land Professional licensed in Kentucky and based out of our Lexington, KY Office.
Lisa Saunders joined National Land Realty in 2018. Lisa brings over 30 years of real estate industry experience to NLR, previously performing appraisals for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the U.S. Forest Service, among others. Her areas of expertise include all types of land, especially those with conservation easements and wetlands, but appraising horse farms is a natural fit.
Land has always been a part of Lisa’s life. Growing up in West Virginia, she spent most of her time outdoors and traveling with her family across the mountains to coal country to visit her grandparents. Her appreciation for land continued into her adult life, which led her to begin appraising land.
Now living in “horse country,” Lisa and her family spend time riding and training American Saddlebred horses. She enjoys house remodeling projects, hiking, and various outdoor activities. Lisa is also involved in The Bluegrass Dyslexia Center as an advocate for those with dyslexia and enjoys spending time tutoring.
Lisa is an Accredited Rural Appraiser (ARA) through the American Society of Farm Managers and Rural Appraisers, as well as a Certified General Real Property Appraiser through the Kentucky Real Estate Appraiser Board. In the appraiser role, Lisa has contributed to conserving over three thousand acres in aggregate of wetland, grassland, forest land, and farm land acres.
A portion of each sale of real estate is donated to an animal welfare group in the county where the parcel of land is located.
