2019 – The Best Year Yet

As we reflect on 2019, there is a consistent theme to our year: relationships. Actually, this is easily the consistent theme for the past decade. The driver of our business and the success of our business hinges on the depth of our relationships. Clients come first – plain and simple. We strive to meet the full-circle real estate needs of our clients. We work with them through renovations, through investment property decisions, on 2nd homes, on 1st homes and everything in between. Our business is not focused on transactions, but on the life-long buying and selling experiences of our clients. 

We are proud to be featured in the February 2020 Indianapolis Monthly as a top realtor. We can’t wait to share that with you soon.

Enjoy this video highlighting 2019 and our 20th year in business. Thank You for an incredible year.

The Best Place to Live in America Is a City You’ve Never Heard Of

A new ranking proclaims one suburban city the top place to live in the United States.

The 86,000 residents of the city of Carmel, Indiana have a reason to celebrate today. Their suburban community just north of Indianapolis was just named the best place to live in the entire United States.

It’s not the first time the city has received such an honor, though. CNN Money magazine dubbed it the best place to live in America back in 2012, but that ranking was specifically focused on cities ranging from 50,000 to 300,000 in population.

Data company Niche, which recently released its own ranking of the best places to live, says its new numbers take “into account several key factors of a location, including the quality of local schools, crime rates, housing trends, employment statistics, and access to amenities in an attempt to measure the overall quality of an area.”

America’s Most Underrated Cities

These cities promise to exceed your expectations.

Peter Schlesinger

Meggie Dials left Illinois for Indianapolis 13 years ago. “Mostly, people think of Indy as a quiet town in a rural state,” Dials, VP of sales at a local tech company and founder of The Sussy Project, told Travel + Leisure. “But we are so much more.”

50 Best Places to Travel in 2017

The 50 destinations that made our list this year include one of France’s lesser-known wine regions, America’s next big dining spot, and a buzzy Greek island.

Putting together our annual list of the best places to travel is a process that takes several months—we survey writers based around the world, talk to our A-List travel specialists, and look at the most exciting hotel and restaurant openings. While news and global events have a large impact on the places we choose, we also pay attention to cities that are worth revisiting: Philadelphia, in particular, may surprise you with the amount of growth and development it has seen in recent months. North America made a strong showing on this year’s list—more than a quarter of these places are within reach for a long-weekend trip from the United States.
