The RGroup Report: July 2023

Looking for the best U.S. small town for families?

A Note From Angie 
We hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July weekend with the people who matter the most to you. 


What an incredible first half of the year it has been! Filled with strategic planning, relentless effort, joyous celebrations, building new friendships and connections, constant learning and embracing change, we loved every single moment of it.

Regardless of the season, we moved with unwavering dedication and wholehearted passion to serve you at the highest level. Thanks to your trust, The RGroup Real Estate has achieved a significant milestone, garnering a remarkable sales volume of $16,924,300 for 2023. We are also thrilled to have received triple nominations for the prestigious Fort Wayne Newspaper Reader’s Choice Awards for Top Real Estate Company, Top Lake Real Estate Company, and Best Real Estate Agent. We are truly humbled
and immensely grateful!

Now, we’re gearing up at a half-year mark, ready to go full throttle to make the most of the year’s remaining months. With summer in full swing, our team is buzzing with activity, catering to numerous motivated buyers and sellers.

If you’ve been thinking of stepping into the market, as well, now’s the time to act. Rates are still low—and you can even get financing for 5-6%. Be sure to visit your local bank or credit union—they have specially designed programs for various circumstances.

There are still plenty of summer days ahead, beckoning you to savor the beauty of the lake. Make this season truly unforgettable by securing your dream home!

To help you bask in the beauty of our local lakes more, there are exciting activities lined up for you. This July, two Rock the Dock events have been lined up. Listen to live music while taking in spectacular water views on Lake Wawasee on July 8, and on Lake Tippecanoe on July 22. Or join the annual Tour des Lakes bike ride around 8 beautiful lakes including Webster Lake, Chapman Lake, and Winona Lake on July 15th!
