Nineteen eighty-six was the era of double-digit interest rates. The F.C. Tucker Company made a leap of faith. They broke ground with the first and only free-standing real estate office in Geist. You may recognize the original structure if you drive down Sargent Road. The “pods,” as they were affectionately called, still stand on top of their stilts along the side of the road.
In 1986, our Geist community was the middle of nowhere with only a few homes. F.C. Tucker saw beyond the bean fields and knew this was going to be a great area in which to raise families.
The company felt so strongly about this commitment that in 1991, F.C. Tucker built the familiar two-story red brick building located at 79th and Fall Creek Road. This office is now home to over 40 agents along with their managing brokers, Joe Dowd and Kristi Snider.
The agents, many of whom have been there for over 20 years, will tell you that their office “feels like home.” “We are a team of people who live in the Geist community. We believe in and love the uniqueness of our “little corner of the world,” said Dowd.
This busy real estate office is filled with licensed realtors who also believe in giving back to the community and show it through their own team involvement in the community. If you mention the Geist Half-Mini, you will quickly hear stories about the water stop that several agents worked at this year. They also feel strongly about their schools, volunteering, and supporting many of the public, private, and parochial schools in the Geist area. St. Mary’s Center, United Way, Realtor Foundation, and Teacher’s Treasures are additional programs that the Tucker agents feel privileged to serve.
One of the most popular seasonal events would have to be the long-running “Santa Claus at Geist” program. It is, indeed, a program to which families look forward every Christmas season. A generation of kids has walked through the office front door to take part in the party and gift giving that makes this event so special. Some of these kids have returned to buy their own homes from one or another of the over 40 full-time team members who also live in the area. Ten of these real estate agents are from the original team formed so many years ago.
It’s interesting to note that these realtors live in the Geist neighborhoods of Cambridge, Admirals, Highlands at Geist, Glen Cove, Crystal Pointe, Feather Cove, Cardinal Woods, and many more. Many of them are longtime residents who have raised their families while helping new families move to the area. So the next time you drive past the F. C. Tucker real estate office at 79th and Fall Creek, tip your hat to the hard-working professionals who have sold more houses and placed more families in our Geist neighborhoods than any other company since they took that leap of faith back in 1991. We guarantee it wouldn’t be the same Geist without the help of people who dedicate their professional time and community energy to make our area a great place to live!
