RE/MAX Centerstone and RE/MAX Excel combine forces in Avon office

AVON, IND. — (February 8, 2013) — RE/MAX of Indiana is pleased to announce that RE/MAX Excel and RE/MAX Centerstone are combining forces for a merger that will create a single  real estate powerhouse in Hendricks County. Broker/Owner Lance Rhoades will oversee the Avon office and its 28 agents with former RE/MAX Excel Broker/Owner Kelly Wood continuing her Realtor duties.

“Three offices working together in our market opens up so many opportunities to serve our clients on a much broader base,” said Wood.

Located at 7341 E. US Hwy 36 in Avon, this is the third office under locally owned and operated RE/MAX Centerstone, which also operates offices in Brownsburg and Plainfield. The addition of the Avon office brings the total number of agents to 71.

”With this merger, our agents can tap into the resources of all three offices to better serve their clients,” said Rhoades, who has been with RE/MAX Centerstone since 2009. “Working together as one will enable us to remain the top real estate company in our area.”

For 2012, RE/MAX Excel and RE/MAX Centerstone combined for 1,500 total closings and $220 million in volume in Hendricks County. With 2,249 overall closed sales reported by Indiana Association of REALTORS®, agents from RE/MAX accounted for 66 percent of total closed sales last year in Hendricks County.

“We are very excited to see Lance’s leadership expand in the market,” said Stacy Gillen, director of regional operations for RE/MAX of Indiana. “With these offices combining forces, RE/MAX Centerstone is creating one of the most experienced and productive real estate brokerages in central Indiana.”
