Southern Indiana is my home and I want to make it yours. This area is growing and I want to help you find exactly what you are looking for so you and your family grow with it. With the hospitality, amenities and beautiful homes and land, I know that we can find your dream home. Everything is available right here!
I have worked, and owned my own business, in many aspects of residential and commercial trades. With my Business Degree from Vincennes University, my trade experiences and my love for working with people, I couldn't think of a better way to put them all together to provide a seamless and enjoyable real estate experience with you. Having the privilege of joining such a great company as F.C. Tucker Emge, this will allow me to do just that.
I grew up in Huntingburg, IN and now reside in Santa Claus, IN with my wife Karen (Feldpausch) Collett, and our four children. While attending St. Boniface Catholic Church in Fulda and coaching our kids in Santa Claus youth leagues, it is not hard to see why we, and so many others are proud to call this area our Home.
" I want to give my thoughts on selling my property in Huntingburg. For 10 plus years I have been trying to sell my lots. I was given Jud's name in Sept. 2015 with F.C. Tucker Emge and he immediately met with me to give me the estimate of value which, was much lower than I was paying taxes on. With my heartstrings attached to the property that has been in the family for 51 years, Jud explained the tax laws and that helped cut some of the heartstrings. Like the other times I met with agents, we met and I thought I was wasting my time, but Jud was different than the others, he got it SOLD..Since I live in Florida, there were many phone conversations, but he kept me informed on the progress and I had no worries. I want to let anyone know, what a great job he did. Thanks again Jud and F.C. Tucker Emge!!!"
"The ground we had listed with Jud went very smooth and it was a quick sell."
" I want to express my gratitude for helping to make my dream of purchasing a home come true. Jud was a great help with the whole process, keeping me informed and taking care of things quickly and efficiently. Jud answered my many questions and addressed any issues in stride and was always very friendly and courteous. I would recommend him to anyone, anytime.
""We had a great home buying and home selling experience working with Jud and FC Tucker. Because we were buying and selling at the same time, we had a lot of high-pressure situations that were critical to getting the right outcome for all parties. Through making those decisions, Jud was great about thinking about the situation, giving us his advice, and letting us make the decision that was best for our family. We always felt that he was advising and looking out for us throughout the experience, and we got the results we were looking for - both in finding the right buyer for our previous home, as well as for the purchase of our new home. I'd recommend Jud to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate in the area.""

"Would like to give a shout out to both my realtor Jud Collett and loan officerBrian P Smith for helping me through my first home purchase! It was a smooth and painless process with them on my side.

"Katrina and I recently had the pleasure of working with Jud Collett when looking for our home. From day 1, Jud was for homes to view based on what we were looking for. All throughout the negotiations and closing Jud was there quickly handling any issues that may have risen. If the time ever comes when we will be looking for a new home, there isn't any question on who my Realtor will be!

"Jud was great! I know him, I trust him and he didn't let me down. He handled everything and made both selling and buying as easy as possible for me.
" In our search for our new summer home, Jud was extremely diligent in answering all our questions. He worked through and helped resolve some tough issues in our early negotiations. His work ethic, responsiveness, helpful and polite manner is highly commendable. I would recommend his services to future real estate customers. Ken Willlis"

"Great guy very helpful. I was able to call him on weekends and late in the evening and he was always willing to help."

"My husband and I just purchased a home in Jasper. Jud was our go-to guy for several months in our search. He showed us so many different homes - both ones that we said we wanted to see and ones that he'd recommended. He kept our "wants" in mind and only recommended ones that either fit in with those wants or were close enough and had enough going for it that it would be really good for us. At no point did I ever feel like he was rushing the process or just trying to get us to buy something to be done with it. I really trusted his opinion through the whole process. He answered any questions we had. I never felt like I was being treated condescendingly.
I was impressed by his easy-going professionalism and friendliness. He was great with my son, who is 6, so I never felt bad if he was with me while we did paperwork or while looking at a home.
If we ever need to move again, we know who to call. We definitely recommend Jud.
Thanks for all your help, Jud!"
