Tommy J’s Pizza Cafe: A Hidden Gem

tommyjsOne of the greatest parts about expanding our real estate business into Anderson is that we get to talk about some of our favorite local businesses.  In our opinion one of the biggest undiscovered gem’s in our midst is Tommy J’s Pizza Cafe located on 3rd St.  While the building itself is somewhat small the atmosphere and employees are larger than life.  With the outdoor seating located on a busy corner it is a great place to eat outdoors and watch the world go by.  But atmosphere aside this place has, without a doubt, some of the best food I have ever had.  Their pizza is undoubtedly fantastic but the rest of their menu rivals my taste buds as well.  From the baked ziti to the spinach calzone the flavors and freshness are undeniable.  For those of you who have not tried Tommy J’s it is my vote for Anderson’s best kept secret so make sure you check it out before the word gets out.

Anderson Making a Name for Itself for New Businesses

I’m sure many of you saw the headlines in the newspaper stating that Anderson was ranked 64th Best Small Places for Business and Careers in the housingmarketincreasepmnation.  While this is no surprise for those of us familiar with Anderson and all it has to offer it is none-the-less a great recognition for our ever-growing city.  Even more spectacular is that Anderson was ranked 98th on the same list in 2007 so we are certainly moving in the right direction.  These rankings were concluded using many different criteria but one that particularly stands out is projected economic growth through 2014 in addition to past and projected job growth.  This speaks to the potential that not only we as citizens see in our city but the potential that is now being recognized nationally as a place to start a business or to find employment.

The housing market is also positively effected by all of the economic growth taking place and projected to take place in Anderson.  In fact compared to one year ago the median home sales price increased 29.7%.  This is a huge jump in only a years time and it shows no signs of slowing down.  Luckily though many wonderful houses are still very affordable which means now is the time to invest in Anderson.  Whether you are looking for a home for your family, a future investment, or a rental investment now is the time to get on board while prices are still low.  If you have any questions about the Anderson housing market or potential investments please feel free to contact our office! We look forward to helping you find your affordable home today!

A New Venture in a Town Full of Possibilities

anderson indianaI am so excited to announce that we are branching out and starting to list and show homes in Anderson, Indiana.  Not only are we very familiar with all aspects of the town but we have such confidence in it’s renewal and rejuvenation as a city that we wanted to help represent it the best we could.  Over the past few years Anderson has gotten a bad rap for everything from it’s economy to it’s leaders but we (as well as many, many others) feel that recently Anderson had made a phenomenal come-back and will once again regain the flourishing economy and bustling city streets that populated this town 20 years ago.  While there is no one thing to accredit this come-back to it is in no small part to the cities government, the strong willed citizens that continue to support local businesses, the new businesses that have chosen Anderson as their new home, and last but not least the increase in the housing market.  We hope that with our dedication and expertise we can help illuminate some of the amazing houses that Anderson has to offer and help to continue breathing life into this city with spunk.  We look forward to working with the city and it’s people and encourage you to consider investing in the renewed city of Anderson, Indiana.
