About Lana Detro

Lana Detro is the Principal Broker for Ala Carte Realty in Indianapolis, Indiana, and specializes in REO Bank Foreclosures throughout Central Indiana. Lana began her real estate career in Austin, Texas, where she was introduced to the world of defaults during the S&L “scandals” of the 1980s. She quickly became one of the top real estate agents in the area by servicing and selling foreclosed properties and assisting HUD and other clients with their REO.

With her family, Lana moved back to Indiana, where no one else specialized in REO, and became the go-to for banks wanting to sell their non-performing loans. When the big wave hit in late 2006 through 2008 and beyond, Lana was someone the lending institutions were calling. She studied the market and traveled to banking conferences, investor forums, REO events, and any other place where economists, market experts, and soothsayers gathered.

“Our desire is to be cooperative and to help any other real estate agents who bring their buyers to us and who may need advice on the selling process,” Detro said.

Lana has been involved in the Indianapolis real estate community as one of the Founders and President of the Indiana Association of Independent Real Estate Brokers, Chair of MIBOR’s Downtown Division, Eastside MIBOR Board of Directors and member of the professional standards committee. Lana is a member of the Metropolitan Indianapolis Board of Realtors, National Association of Realtors, Indiana Association of Realtors, and co-founder of Default Industry Leaders, a national organization of real estate professionals involved in REO.

Lana has partnered with the Indiana Neighborhood Housing Partnership to teach homeownership to new buyers. Lana was also nominated for the National HOPE Award for her outstanding work with minority buyers.

“After all these years in real estate, I am always excited every time we find a buyer for ‘his’ house. I don’t want this thrill to stop!

“As real estate professionals, we are not fortune tellers, but we are experienced agents who have been doing it for years. We study trends and know where the market is heading, even when other we poop and then get caught off guard when the inevitable starts to unfold,” Detro said of the current state of the Indiana real estate market.

“The timing is always a little different across the country. Some states reflect changes a little faster than others, but everything moves in cycles. Right now the real estate cycle is down,” she said.

“We’re seeing homes stay on the market for much longer, prices are reduced, and the flood of multiple offers has died down,” Detro said.

“In other words, there is a hint of a return to a more normal market. As we navigate this time, just remember what every default agent knows, ‘what goes up’ must come down. Historically , the cycle changes approximately every 10 years. So hang on for the ride during this correction because it is coming. In the meantime, we will continue to navigate this strange beast together.
