Our Story


In 2004 John and Kristi Horton combined their backgrounds in sales, marketing, business, management, and entrepreneurship and became realtors at RE/MAX Services in Evansville, Indiana. After spending five years at RE/MAX, the Hortons began working for ERA First Advantage Realty through 2014. Soon after becoming the top producing agents in the office, gaining more knowledge of the industry, and reaching high ranks in the Newburgh and Evansville areas for real estate, the Hortons took their talents to Keller Williams, the largest real estate company in the United States. This move was made with their clients in mind—working at Keller Williams, all leads are distributed directly to the Horton Team. This means that clients can trust that any inquiries about their home will go straight to the realtors that know the most about your house and not a receptionist or administrative personnel. The Horton Team has since brought on Kristi Raben (Buyer and New Construction Specialist), Sarah Key (Office Manager), and Evan Snider (Marketing Director) to continue better serving their clients. The Horton Team also uses virtual assistants to help create an organized and creative presentation of every home the Horton Team works with. With a dynamic team composed of talented specialists competent within a wide range of fields, the Horton Team is capable of handling any transaction with the professionalism and care needed to provide you with the best possible buying or selling experience in the Newburgh and Evansville markets of Warrick and Vanderburgh County.

Keller Williams – Capital Realty June of 2014 to Present.

HortonTeam.com
Moved to Keller Williams, the largest real estate company in the U.S., to better serve our clients. At kw we receive our own sign/internet calls on all of our properties that are listed.
We want ALL the inquiries coming to us, because we know the most about the home. We do not want all of the incoming inquiries/calls forwarded to agents on “phone time” that might be brand new agents, or worse yet, experienced agents answering, who might/will steer buyers to their own listings.

Our last full year, we were in the top 10 listing agents for Newburgh & the top 40 for the Evansville/Newburgh area.
