FORTVILLE — Selling homes is where Mark Forcum and Bren Flatter’s hearts are.
Not surprisingly, the real estate world brought the soon-to-be-wed couple together.
As a salesman, Mark sought out leads from Bren’s title company. The two first met for a business lunch, which helped lay the foundation for their relationship.
“Being a pesky salesperson, I called her back again with more questions,” said Mark, a Mt. Vernon High School graduate. “After bothering her one or two more times, she finally figured out that I was calling her on a social level.”
Ever since their first dates at a Broad Ripple restaurant and a race week event at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway back in May 2007, the pair has been practically inseparable, aside from all the hours each logs at their jobs.
Mark proposed to Bren last June, picking the most unlikely of days to make his move. As part of Mark’s birthday celebration, the pair went out for dinner and a walk down the White River canal downtown. The following morning, he decided it was time to pop the question.
“I did it because I knew she wouldn’t expect it on my birthday,” said Mark, who works as a Real Estate Investment Professional at Century 21 Realty Group. “I knew she would think the entire day was supposed to be about me, so it would throw her for a loop.
“It was planned, but the plan didn’t happen. It ended up being better than the plan. I didn’t even have to take her out for dinner.”
Although Bren contends that her fiancé still owes her a dinner, neither has any complaints about the planning for their July 24 wedding, which will take place at Holy Spirit at Geist with a reception following at the Skyline Club.
Bren said hiring a wedding planner has made the process much easier to swallow.
“I still to this day do not understand why brides get all freaked out,” Bren said. “It’s really not that stressful, if you take one thing at a time.”
Bren said the planner has been a godsend because of the 70 to 80 hour work weeks she often contends with. Because of their similar career paths, her fiancé can relate.
“There was just something different about him,” Bren said. “He wasn’t threatened by how much I worked. He wasn’t bothered by my ambition, which was something that was very appealing to me.
“I understand why a lot of Realtors get married because of the weird hours and the demands that it comes with.”
The National REO account manager at Meridian Title said meeting her match finally convinced her being a pair beats being single.
“When I found someone who could let me be me and appreciated my work ethic, I realized that you can have the best of both worlds.”
