FORT WAYNE, Ind. – The world’s largest real estate company by agent count is the newest resident of downtown Fort Wayne. Keller Williams will celebrate the grand opening of its new Fort Wayne franchise, located at 930 South Calhoun Street, on Thursday, April 19.
“It’s exciting to be part of the growth and revitalization of downtown Fort Wayne. I can’t think of a better place to call home. Our location is the perfect fit for us,” said Aaron Hoover, operating principal at Keller Williams Fort Wayne. “We saw an opportunity to bring a business model to our market that focuses on developing the agents’ business.”
Initially, the Fort Wayne office will host four staff members and 40 agents. The team’s goal is to grow the franchise to include 200 agents and 30 percent of the area’s real estate market share.
“Our mission is to be the real estate company of choice for agents and their clients,” Hoover said. “Fort Wayne has so many great attributes that make it a wonderful community. From excellent jobs, schools, restaurants, and churches to a vibrant arts and music scene. We also boast one of the most affordable housing markets in the country. Being downtown puts us at the very center of everything Fort Wayne has to offer. The vibrancy downtown is amazing.”
The Fort Wayne real estate market is riding high. LendingTree recently named Fort Wayne one of the five most popular cities for millennial homebuyers, and Realtor.com ranked the city’s real estate market among the five hottest in the country within the past year.
Last year, Training magazine ranked Keller Williams as the top training organization in the world. The company has also received a variety of national awards for its company culture and workplace atmosphere.
Keller Williams’ new office is located at 930 South Calhoun Street in Fort Wayne. The grand opening, slated for April 19, is open to the public and will begin with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 3 p.m. Guests are invited to enjoy food, beverages, and live music.
