“Some would say that real estate is in my blood! Growing up with two Realtor parents gave me the opportunity to witness firsthand how dynamic and interesting the real estate business truly is.” He adds, “It is extremely rewarding helping buyers and sellers achieve the American dream, particularly in a community I am so passionate about.”
“John was the absolute best to work with during my selling process. I am in Colorado, and he made it feel like I was there,” one client notes. Another adds, “He is very knowledgeable about the home buying process and knows the western KY area and beyond. John’s communication is fast and friendly and his attention to detail is second to none. He goes above and beyond!”
John began in real estate while he was obtaining a Master’s degree in Business Administration from Murray State University. An undergraduate degree in finance and the MBA provides a solid foundation for him. “My previous work experience as a mortgage loan officer helped me understand the finance side of the business. The MBA helped me grow and manage my business to provide better service to my clients.”
John’s passion for Murray has been shown in his work to better the community and Board of Realtors. He was President of the Board of Realtors in 2019, following two years serving as Treasurer. He was a member of the Kentucky Realtors’ Leadership KYR Class in 2018. John was a founding member of Young Professionals of Murray, an offshoot of the Chamber of Commerce. He has also served as a Trustee for the Murray Independent School District Foundation for Excellence. He has served on the committee for Friends of Scouting Annual Fundraiser for several years.
In addition to residential sales, John is building a solid reputation in the commercial world. “I really enjoy working with businesses moving in and expanding in Murray and the Western Kentucky region” he notes. He has completed the first round of courses in working toward the Certified Commercial Investment Member (CCIM), which recognizes leading experts in the commercial investment field.
John earned his Broker’s license in 2015 and he has since added the Certified Residential Specialist (CRS) designation, which places him in the top 2% of Realtors nationwide and the Graduate Realtor Institute (GRI) designation. He has been a consistent multi-million dollar producer since he first began his career and has been named Kopperud Realty Agent of the Year five times as the top producer. He has been voted by the public as the Murray Ledger and Times Favorite Realtor twice.
In his leisure time, John enjoys traveling – both in the US and internationally – hiking, reading, and spending time on Kentucky Lake with his family and his Airedoodle, Pete.
John was the the absolute best to work with during my selling process. I am in Colorado and he made it feel like I was there. Highly recommend him and the Kopperud team.
John was amazing, he is always easy to get ahold of and is very responsive to calls, texts and emails. He made the home buying process very easy, especially considering we were out of the state for most of it. His entire office was very professional, and went out of their way to accommodate us during the peak of the holidays, a snowstorm, and a covid surge. I would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
Don't hesitate to call John Kopperud at Kopperud Realty. He is very knowledgeable about the home buying process and knows the western KY area and beyond.

You will not be disappointed. He goes above and beyond!
