In the News: Our Team in IBJ

The Indianapolis Business Journal recently posted the top producing teams in the whole state of Indiana for 2014. We are so honored that our team ranked #19 among these great agents! 


Monday Movement: Week 40

Happy Monday! We are still celebrating the Colts first victory over here! (a win is a win, right?) Here's what's been moving the team this week: 

We had three homes closed this week.

Have a fantastic week!


Caliber Home Loans at Victory Field

Caliber Home Loans hosted a fantastic evening earlier this month. They invited all of their real estate partners and their families to Victory Field to watch the Indianapolis Indians play some baseball. 

The loan officers at Caliber have been such a reliable partner to our team for over twenty years! Their entire team works hard to help our clients purchase and refinance their homes.

When Caliber has a loan, we can be confident they are going to educate our buyers, be thorough and honest throughout the process. They are proactive, excellent communicators and build their business on character. "They are under-promisers" and "over-deliverers" We are so grateful to have a team like Caliber on our side!

Rowdie was a crowd favorite with (most of) the kids!

Caliber Fan Club

Thank you Mark Davis, and the rest of the Caliber Team. We had a great night and are eternally grateful for your hard work and dedication to this business! 

Call Caliber with any of your home financing needs!

Around Indy: Hunter Smith Band Concert

One of the things we love about Indy, is the hometown feel wherever you are. Recently, I had the pleasure of seeing Hunter Smith Band play in concert at Traders Point Creamery. Hunter Smith is a beloved former Colt who has transitioned into the music industry. 

Every Friday evening, Traders Point Creamery hosts a band or musician, and we are happy that we got to experience a night with Hunter's band. His music falls primarily in the Christian/Country genre. However, he can appeal to the masses.

Here is a clip of one our favorite songs of his: "Indiana Moon"

We encourage you to explore the culture and festivals of Indy. That's why we love it here! What are some of your favorite Indiana treasures?

Thanks Traders Point Creamery for hosting a great show!


Monday Movement: Week 37

Happy Labor Day! We hope you're enjoying the extended weekend with friends and family.  We are loving this day off after a busy week. Here's what's moving:

Caesar Court listed and sold! This one had an accepted offer too.

We had several sellers and buyers close this week as well. We consider it a blessing to work with all our clients. Here's to the last heat wave of summer! Stay cool!


Fall Staging + Decor

We're celebrating the first of September! (And secretly counting down the days [Sept 8] until the Pumpkin Spice Latte is available) 

In the meantime, how are you prepping for fall? Whether you're getting ready to put your house on the market, or you just love being festive, here is some inspiration we found on Pinterest to get you in the spirit:

We love fall front doors! If you're going on the market, don't be afraid to tastefully decorate! It adds an element of charm and warmth to your home.

I love the idea of non-traditional decor. White pumpkins create a classic and festive touch to your fall furnishes.

And I'm loving these mantles:

Can I just point out the candles in the fireplace real quick? I tell my buyers this all time: regardless of the season- if you're not a fireplace person...fill it with candles! Perfect and clean use of such a beautiful part of any home. 

If you're selling your home, gone are the days where you need to completely take all your decor down. Don't go overboard but adding a touch of your seasonal decor helps the buyer visualize a cozy place to call their own. 
How do you plan on welcoming fall?
