Meet The Team
Serving all has never been more true than in the foundation of The Cooper Group
With Greg serving his client base in northern Marion and Hamilton Counties, Lisa Phillips covering the downtown neighborhoods of Indianapolis through the northside areas like Meridian Kessler & Butler Tarkington and Rew Van Wyck & Kristin Smith adding support to all of those areas, it truly is a team effort. The Cooper Group has THE BEST OPERATIONS DIRECTOR in the real estate industry, Mercedes Halbert! She keeps the process on track for all clients and customers while also managing the day-to-day workings of the team.
One of the more important things for The Cooper Group is giving back and being a part of the communities they serve. The Patachou Foundation and others will be the beneficiaries of the success of the team both in direct donations and awareness throughout Central Indiana. Helping those in need while serving their clients has always and will always be a top priority for The Cooper Group.
"We cannot adequately express how much we appreciate Rew and all that you have done for us. You have gone above and beyond to ensure this process has been perfect.

Thank you or all of the after-hour phone calls, extensive texts, and for always being there for our meetings We could not have gone through this without you and are so excited for our new home. You are incredible at your job! Thank you!"

"Lisa is great to work with. She has a lot of knowledge and understands the housing market. She is able to assess existing and future properties quickly and accurately. She makes my life easier."
“Rew is an amazing Realtor®. She worked over a year with and never let the market dictate her efforts in selling our home. She constantly did open houses and tried to keep our listing at the top of MIBOR. I cannot say enough about her. We relocated to another state and she even did searches to find us Realtors® that would understand what we needed and made sure they were up to the task. It took some time, but Rew fought the fight the whole way and we couldn’t be happier to call her our Realtor®, but really a true friend. Thank you for everything Rew!”
"Lisa is very easy to work with. She has great knowledge of the area. Thanks to her suggestions, we are able to sell our home in under 40 days!"
"I was looking to buy a fixer-upper out in the country. I gave Rew my list of requirements and within a week or so we looked at two listings. The second listing was a home run and we made an offer. She was also very through and kept me informed during the whole process. If not for Rew’s persistence, we wouldn’t have made our closing date,. In fact my lending officer at TCU was impressed with her enough that he wanted her contact info so he could work with her in the future. I would not hesitate to use Rew again and highly recommend her to anybody looking for a Realtor®."
"We put our house on the market near the start of quarantine having finally found a home to move to after two years of searching. To say we were nervous was an understatement. Greg constantly reassured us our current home had great value even in times this uncertain. The first night our home sold over list price. We’d have never taken the chance if it weren’t for his expertise."

"Lisa's knowledge helped me find a great neighborhood that was in my desirable location and school district. Her prompt attention guided me through my first home buying experience and made it very pleasant overall. Thank you Lisa!"
"Lisa Phillips was great to work with in selling our Carmel Indiana home. We had a rather unique home and time restrictions that worked out perfectly. She is an expert in the Indianapolis market area."
"Four homes in, Greg has helped us every time since moving from Georgia in 1999. We came here knowing no one and Greg had every resource for our family to begin our new life in Indiana."
Becca & Dan R.
"We started out in a bungalow in Broad Ripple. Greg assured us it was the perfect place to build equity and would give us the ability to move up when we were ready. Today we’re in Bayhill in Carmel in the place our children will always remember as their fondest childhood memory."
Aden & Maria
"We thought downsizing simply meant we would have a smaller investment. Greg helped us understand downsizing meant lifestyle & a quality of life we deserved because we had earned it. We’re thrilled to be in a townhome a block from the Palladium in Carmel & never understood that THIS was what downsizing is truly all about."
Mark & Danielle
"Rew was a gem to have as my real estate agent. She went above and beyond to show me houses that met my individual needs, taking all facets of my personal and working life into consideration. She was a wonderfully supportive guide through all the unknowns in the process. The house I landed in is an 11/10 on my wishlist and it’s all due to her dedicated service. Thank you, Rew!"
"Lisa was absolutely amazing in one of the most stressful times in our lives. It wasn't easy to find the perfect house, but she listened to our concerns and desires for a house, and we got EXACTLY what we wanted. We had a few hiccups that were completely out of her hands, and she handled them with patience and certainly acted with grace under fire. She was always very quick to get back to us, negotiated well on our behalf, and really, really knew her stuff when it came to the area and the market. Most of all, she was one of our first impressions of Indiana, and she did nothing, but welcome us and take time and care with us. Every client presents different challenges, but she made us feel like friends. Now we are. We are still in touch, and hope to be forever. We couldn't have been happier with the process, and can't recommend her highly enough!"
"Lisa is extremely ambitious. She mandates excellence of herself and her constituents through the example she sets. She's sharp and willing to do what it takes to guarantee the success of any given task. I advocate working with Lisa in any capacity."
"Our home. Our son’s home. Our other son’s home. Our daughter & her fiance’s home. Every step of the way Greg has been there to guide our family at our most important turning points."
S & J
"Lisa and I met over 12 years ago when we started as agents. I decided to go back to construction and we have since worked on numerous projects together. Home renovations, update, maintenance, new builds, investment properties. Lisa has been our realtor and friend for over a decade. Her ability to fit the perfect home with her clients is impeccable. She helped find our first home, helped us sell it (over 17% neighborhood comps) and find our current home. She navigated our parents home purchase as well as our current investment property downtown. Not only is Lisa professional and able to keep cool under immense pressure, she’s just a great human being overall. She has always kept our best interest at heart even if it meant at the expense of herself. We are very lucky to have her in our corner. Looking forward to our future projects!"
"WOW! Rew the Realtor® made a crazy house search so pleasant. She is there for you as a client and a human ♥ We have a tight schedule and she didn’t bat an eye at multiple weeks of cramming in 5 to 10 houses on the days we could search. Rew is knowledgable, kind, informative, always puts the clients wishes first, and just just great fun to be around! Do yourself a favor and make Rew the Realtor® your next Realtor®."
"I can’t say enough about Rew the Realtor®. Rew is not only a great Realtor®, she is an amazing person as well. She truly cares about her clients and wants only the best for them. She takes the time to make sure you fully understand your options and that you are comfortable with your decisions throughout the entire process. With Rew, you will always have someone working for you!"
