The Beautiful & Historic Landmark, The Murat Theatre in Downtown Indianapolis, Indiana was the location chosen to hold hundreds of REALTORS this past Tuesday, February 19, 2008 for the Annual F.C.Tucker Awards Luncheon.

H. James Litten, co- Owner, in his Keynote address, reported Sales in excess of 2.6 BILLION Dollars for the Company in 2007 - one of the top 4 years in the company's history since opening it's doors in 1918 !

He went on to say - this record year was achieved DESPITE THE "PERFECT STORM" which brewed in the Real Estate Industry in 2007 in our STATE OF INDIANA, which dealt with issues like complicated tax reassessments, negative media, and the mortgage crisis.

 What then? makes F.C.Tucker a strong buoy unaffected by the factors of this perfect storm (and other sinking buoys affecting Real Estate) ?

Perhaps it is it's basic philosophy based on the principle of : The Golden Rule

Perhaps it can be found on a plaque honoring the late founder Frederick C. Tucker, Sr : Judgment, Courage, Patience and Vision...

Or Perhaps as Jim summarized - It is a willingness to change with the times and not become dinosaurs (extinct) and  to Never lose focus on who our customers are!

Here are a few more AMAZING STATISTICS about this Solid, Stable Company that has withstood the TEST of TIME and various Market Conditions in the State of Indiana, and thus has emerged, hands down, as the Industry Leader For Real Estate for nearly a century!
