Meet Shevawn Akers


Shevawn Akers is the founder and owner of the Firefly Realty Group. She leads a team of energetic agents, with a commitment to excellence and client satisfaction. After earning a Master's degree from the University of Kentucky, Shevawn worked in the non-profit sector for 15 years. Her passion for service (and a battle with breast cancer) inspired her to run for local office in 2011, where she served two terms on the Lexington-Fayette Urban County Council. This leadership experience gives her a unique insight into the housing market in the Bluegrass region. Shevawn is among the top 2% in production in the Central Kentucky Region and a lifetime member of the Top Producers Club.

Shevawn's knowledge of current trends in marketing and technology gives her sellers a distinct advantage in a competitive market. When you're ready to list your home, Shevawn assists with staging, choosing paint colors, providing referrals for contractors and whatever is needed to get your home show-ready. Professional photography and paid social media advertising are included with every listing – at no cost to the homeowner.

Whether you're a first-time homebuyer, an investor, needing more space or ready to downsize, the Firefly team will walk you through the entire process; from securing financing to negotiating the purchase contract and making the closing process as seamless as possible. Shevawn truly enjoys helping others buy, sell and build wealth in real estate. Her team's priority is to ensure client transactions are easy and stress-free. You can rest assured knowing that she will be responsive and accessible, maintaining open communication at all times and looking out for your best interests!

Shevawn is the mother of two (a toddler and a teenager) and an avid foodie. She loves collecting original art, renovating houses and traveling with her family.
