Our real estate agents are excited for another wonderful year in Wabash County.

Between showing off beautiful Huntington homes for sale, you'll find our Huntington real estate agents enjoying community events all year long. There's always something to do. Some dates and locations are still in flux, but the 2023 Wabash Calendar is already online.
