  • For more than five years, Jeana has written extensively about Central Indiana's hottest real estate on a monthly basis.
  • Jeana is well-versed in working on home projects within a tight budget, becoming an expert at scouring the Internet for DIY solutions to various weekend projects.
  • She bought an 1830s "fixer-upper" and has done nearly all the work. This is her second fixer-upper property in the last decade, so she is extremely familiar with the ins and outs of old home renovations and the unique set of challenges they bring. She has worked through just about all of them.


Jeana has worked as a freelance writer for the last five years, with a specific focus on hot real estate and all things home. She is a contributing editor for Indianapolis Monthly Magazine and writes the 'Realty Check' feature each month. Jeana has toured some of Indy's most jaw-dropping properties to tell their stories in the 'Home of the Month' feature. She's an expert in weekend home improvement projects and DIY successes (with a few DIY disasters, too). If there's a trick or home hack, she's probably tried it, and she's always on the hunt for more. Living in the country on several acres, she's a devoted gardener and loves experimenting with new plants, landscaping trends, and homesteading projects.


Jeana double-majored in English and creative writing at Purdue University, where she was awarded the honor of Most Outstanding Senior in the Creative Writing Department.
