A little about the areas we serve!
Indianapolis Real Estate:
Indianapolis is the capitol city of the U.S. state of Indiana, and the county seat of Marion County, Indiana. The 2000 Census counted the city's population (excluding included towns) at 781,870. It is Indiana's most populous city and is the 13th largest city in the U.S., the third largest city in the Midwest, and the second most populous capitol in the U.S., behind Phoenix, Arizona. The labels of The Amateur Sports capitol of the World, and The Racing capitol of the World, have both been applied to Indianapolis.
Indianapolis Real Estate around the metropolitan area has seen modest and steady growth among U.S. cities., with growth centered in the surrounding counties of Hamilton, Hendricks, and Johnson. Hamilton County Real Estate and Hendricks County Real Estate is currently the fastest growing counties in Indiana and in the Midwest, although the state as a whole is only showing modest growth.
Indianapolis has hosted the 1987 Pan American Games, both Men's and Women's NCAA Basketball Tournaments, the Big Ten Conference Men's Basketball Tournament, the Allstate 400 at the Brickyard, the United States Grand Prix (2000-2007), the 2002 World Basketball Championship, and is perhaps most famous for the annual Indianapolis 500. The attendance at both the Indianapolis 500 and the Allstate 400 makes them the two largest single day sporting events in the world, with well over 250,000 fans in attendance at each. Indianapolis also hosts NHRA's US National Drags just west of Indianapolis in the town of Clermont with attendance over a 4 day period making it one of the largest racing events in the world. This year Indianapolis will also host the 2008 Red Bull Indianapolis GP Schedule.
Indianapolis is home to the 2006 Super Bowl winning Indianapolis Colts. Indianapolis is also home to the NBA Indiana Pacers, USHL Indianapolis Ice, and the MiLB Indianapolis Indians.
Look at some of the press about Indianapolis Real Estate:
A Nov. 7 Fortune Magazine article listed Indianapolis Real Estate as one of only seven cities expected to see home values increase in the next five years.
Forbes Magazine rated the Indianapolis Real Estate market #1 least over-priced major city in the country.
The National Association of Home Builders/Wells Fargo Housing Opportunity Index named Indianapolis Real Estate the most affordable major market for the ninth consecutive time.
CNN Money.com noted that Indianapolis Real Estate and local economy is poised to grow faster than the national average over the next two years, with house prices projected to post a respectable gain.
Forbes Magazine rated the Indianapolis Real Estate Market #9 for best places to buy foreclosed homes in the country.
Many factors - such as good schools, access to transportation, parks and recreation, and public safety - contribute to overall quality of life and, ultimately, the success of the Indianapolis real estate market. But affordability is the cornerstone of central Indiana's housing market - for 2008 and beyond.
Fishers Real Estate:
Fishers, located in Fall Creek and Delaware townships, Hamilton County, Indiana, is a town with a population of 65,382, according to a special census conducted in 2007. A suburb of Indianapolis, Fishers has grown rapidly in recent decades: about 350 people lived there in 1963, 2,000 in 1980, and only 7,200 as recently as 1990. Fishers Real Estate was ranked the 24th best place to live in America by Money magazine in 2005, and 33rd in 2006. Both years Fishers Real Estate was the best in Indiana.
Fishers Real Estate hosts the living history museum Conner Prairie, which presents Indiana life in three different periods of the 19th century.
Fishers is served by Hamilton Southeastern Schools.
Geist Real Estate(Geist Reservoir Real Estate):
The dam which creates Geist Reservoir is located at the lake's southern end. Fed by Fall Creek on the north, the lake overflow is directed into the creek again at the south. The reservoir is mostly rather shallow (ten feet or less). The area has undergone rapid development, and many high-valued waterfront homes now line Geist Reservoir.
Geist Reservoir Real Estate spans three counties in Indiana (Marion, Hamilton, and Hancock), four voting precincts, four school districts (Lawrence, Hamilton Southeastern, and Mt. Vernon), and features four different zip codes (46037, 46256, 46236, 46040). This diversity is brought together through a local community website called atGeist.com, which also publishes a monthly community newsletter.
A little history on Geist Reservoir Real Estate: Geist Reservoir was named after Clarence Geist, a former owner of the Indianapolis Water Company who foresaw a deficit in Indianapolis's water supply, and envisioned Geist Reservoir to preemptively address the problem - but not without a casualty. Planning for the resevoir began as early as 1913, when hydraulic engineers estimated that White River and Fall Creek would not provide enough water for the increasing needs of Indianapolis Real Estate. Geist gradually bought some 5,000 acres in Fall Creek Valley in the 1920s and 1930s, including the small town of Germantown, which today lies at the bottom of the reservoir.
Although controversial, the reservoir was completed in 1943, five years after Clarence Geist's death. In the 1960s further controversy arose over plans for commercial and residential development in the area around the lake. A proposal in the 1970s to triple the size of the reservoir was defeated, and a housing boom began in the lake area. In recent years the Geist Real Estate market has experienced rapid growth. The area is noted for its unique topography and the reservoir.
Carmel Real Estate:
Carmel (pronounced like the candy) is a city in Hamilton County, Indiana, United States. The population was 37,733 at the 2000 census but has been growing very rapidly. In 2007, a special census recorded the city population at 68,677.
Carmel real estate is considered to be a suburb (or edge city) of Indianapolis and is characterized by its many roundabouts. Until the late 1800s, the settlement where present day Carmel now sits was called Bethlehem. Today, the plot first established in Bethlehem, located at the intersection of Rangeline Road and Main Street, is marked by a clock tower, donated by the local Rotary Club in 2002.
Carmel Real Estate is home to a thriving economy. Several large companies reside in Carmel, such as the National Headquarters for Conseco and Pearson Education (formerly MacMillan Publishing). It is also home to many mid-sized and smaller companies, such as ChaCha Search, Orchard Software Corporation, Autobase Inc., Electronic Evolution, Stratis Plastic Pallets and Oxford Financial Services.
Carmel Real Estate Trivia: In 1924, one of the first automatic traffic signals in the United States was installed at the intersection of Main Street and Range Line Road. The signal that was installed was the invention of Leslie Haines.
Greenwood Real Estate:
Greenwood is a city in Johnson County, Indiana, United States. The population was 36,037 at the 2000 census and 42,236 at the 2005 update. A 2007 special census found the population to be 47,736.

The city also has entertainment venues, fine restaurants, and retail for all ages. Greenwood has two libraries serving the area, a community band, and an art institute. Greenwood is a key player in an economic power corridor which stretches throughout the Central Indiana region. It has a well-deserved reputation as one of the state's most diversified business communities. Flexibility and efficient planning meet changing market demands. The City initiates several projects to redefine City infrastructures, providing an attractive atmosphere for commerce. With this growth also come great health care, education, and a sense of pride.
