F.C. Tucker Company and Front Porch Real Estate Join Forces
Indianapolis, IN (Aug. 30, 2021) – Front Porch Real Estate (Front Porch) is joining forces with The F.C. Tucker Company (F.C. Tucker), Indiana’s largest independent real estate firm.
Established in 2014 by former F.C. Tucker real estate agent Jim Perry, Front Porch has 190 agents working out of five offices – 4 offices in Indianapolis and one in Paoli, Ind. with annual sales in access of $348,000,000.
“When I created Front Porch Real Estate, I wanted to provide the highest level of support possible to my agents to assist them in delivering superior service to their own clients,” said Jim Perry, owner of Front Porch Real Estate. “When I decided to step back from ownership, F.C. Tucker was the clear choice. There’s no other brokerage I would entrust my business to. Tucker truly cares about its agents and staff – just as I do – and they have the resources, technology and support of a larger brokerage to help agents serve their clients at the highest level possible.”
All of Front Porch’s offices will remain open during a transition period. Following the transition period, agents will become part of metro-area F.C. Tucker offices. The Front Porch brand will transition to F.C. Tucker. Perry will join the management team at F.C. Tucker Company.
The addition of Front Porch propels F.C. Tucker’s market share over 20%.
“I have known Jim Perry for many years as a knowledgeable and savvy professional who has built an impressive real estate business. When we first started talking about the possibility of joining forces, it quickly became obvious this is a natural fit for both sets of agents, and a move that complements our ongoing growth strategy,” said Jim Litten, CEO of F.C. Tucker Company.”
