Five Star Professional partnered with Indianapolis Monthly to determine the real estate agents in the Indianapolis area who provide exceptional service and overall satisfaction. The Five Star Professional research team contacted clients, peers and industry experts, and asked it they had experience working with a real estate agent. Those who participated in the research provided the name of a real estate agent and rated that individual according to criteria such as integrity, communication and customer service. The survey data was collected and scored, resulting in the list of 2013 Indianapolis Five Star Real Estate Agents. The research methodology allows no more than 7 percent of real estate agents to be named a Five Star Real Estate Agent.
