Three leading Indianapolis area real estate teams merged into one to join Compass, the country’s largest independent real estate brokerage. The new team of seven, now known as the Sears and Syrus Realty Group, brings years of experience to the table.

Principal Brokers Lisa Sears of the Sears Realty Group, Lindsay Sears of the Sears Team, and Zach Syrus of Syrus Realty lead the new Compass team as of March 1, 2022.

Given the ever-evolving nature of the real estate industry, Sears and Syrus knew how beneficial combining their three very successful teams would be. This dynamic merger brings together some of the best talent with a vast array of knowledge and strengths. Combining these forces allows the team to cover all facets of the industry.

The three Principal Brokers laid the foundation for their new team’s success while keeping the client experience as their number one priority. The level of dedication each team player contributes is unmatchable. From sun up to sun down they get it handled. “No two clients have the same needs or desires, and it’s our job to listen to our client’s and deliver beyond expectation,” Zach, Lisa and Lindsay say, “Let us do what we do best, while our clients continue living life.”

Lisa Sears has been selling real estate since 1991. Along with her husband, Rod Sears, she previously owned and managed a RE/MAX franchise. Rod brings to the table years of experience as a custom builder and master carpenter by trade. Now retired from building and carpentry, Rod is focused only on selling real estate. The couple are long-time residents of the Geist area with three daughters and four grandchildren.

Daughter Lindsay Sears was born and raised in the industry. She’s been selling real estate for 14 years. A resident of McCordsville and outdoor enthusiast, Lindsay is married with two children.

Zach Syrus has been actively involved in the real estate industry, selling for more than 8 years. He’s a Geist resident and married with a beautiful daughter.

Chanel Esters has already made her mark in the two years she’s been in the industry. The former rookie of the year at a previous brokerage is an Indianapolis native and lover of all charitable events.

Millie Akers brings five years of experience to the table. A big team player, she holds a real estate license in Indiana and Arizona where she lived for a few years before finding her way back to her roots in Indiana. Millie is an avid golfer and sports enthusiast.

Adan Revilla is the newest member to the industry. But he’s no stranger to client relations and sales. Prior to real estate, Adan had a robust career as a master salesman. He’s a Fishers resident, and happily married with four amazing children.

Along with the team’s vast experience and knowledge, the backing of the strong Compass brand offers them another tool for success; Compass Concierge. It’s a program that allows clients to sell their homes faster and for more money offering a loan covering the upfront costs of remodeling, painting, staging and more. The interest free loan starts with an easy application process and quick response. Sellers get immediate increase in equity in their current home, a higher selling price, giving them a better equity position for their new home.
