My advice is to get educated on the area and work with someone who is very familiar with Indianapolis and the suburbs. Brownsburg and Avon definately feel much differently than Carmel and Fishers, altough I think all of Indianapolis is pretty laid back. When I work with families moving from out-of-town, I typically ask them a ton of questions about what's most important, how you live, how you spend your free time, what you do on weekends and after work, because that can make a real difference on where you want to live. I don't know whether schools are an issue, but if you have children, you're going to want to get stats from the various schools to compare class sizes, test scores, extra curriculars, etc.
If you'd like this information, I'd be happy to provide it to you. You can send me your address or your email at Laura@TalktoTucker.com, or call me directly at 317.702.0058.
Best of luck.
