About Paul

Untitled photo

Residential Real Estate has been a full-time profession for Paul since 1995, being a licensed Real Estate Broker in both Indiana and Texas. Paul has seen the Real Estate industry as a whole evolve into an environment dominated by technology. While this technology is informative, it can also be overwhelming. What is not lost on Paul is the importance of today's buyers and sellers having a trusted, knowledgeable, and professional Realtor working on their behalf.

In addition, Paul is a Real Estate investor, currently owning four rental properties, as well as having successfully flipped multiple properties. Paul resides in Fishers and specializes in the Fishers, Geist, Carmel, Lawrence, and Washington Township markets.

In his free time, he enjoys an active lifestyle which includes regular exercise, studying & playing the piano, snow skiing, hiking, American Civil War studies, and personal growth.


It is our pleasure to recommend David Perez and Paul Bates of F.C. Tucker as real estate agents for anyone looking for a wonderful experience in buying or selling your home. My wife and I interviewed multiple agents for the sale of our home in Fishers, IN and we couldn’t be happier that we chose Paul and David to be our realtors. From the very first interview, we felt very comfortable with both Paul and David. They sat down and explained the entire process with us and went through step by step how they would come to a reasonable selling price for our home. We asked them both to come back for a 2nd interview and at that interview they went into the process in even MORE detail. This was BEFORE we even hired them! It was at that time that we told Paul and David that if they had already put in this amount of work before being hired, we have no doubt they would go above and beyond in the sale of our home. We were NOT disappointed.

Paul and David are extremely knowledgeable and incredibly professional at what they do. On the flip side, they are also both so down to earth that it felt like working with old friends. They were beside us every step of the way and put us at ease the entire way until the home was sold. With the work they put in, our home had an accepted offer before the first Open House. The Covid pandemic happened at exactly the same time our home went up for sale, and Paul and David navigated us through that with ease.

If you are looking for a realtor that will be beside you through the entire home-selling process, I highly recommend both Paul Bates and David Perez of F.C. Tucker.

Working in the NFL has allowed my family and I the opportunity to live in different cities in the United States, and working with different Realtors in each city. My wife Joelle and I came to know Paul Bates as a great friend, in addition to being a great Realtor. We enjoyed our time spent with him, and he has earned our trust.

As an experienced real estate investor, I have had the opportunity to use many Real Estate agents over the years. I came to know Paul Bates thru social circles, and always saw him as someone who treated everyone with respect and kindness. He also came across as being structured and polished in all aspects of his life, whether personal or professional. Having worked with Paul on several investment properties, he quickly gained my trust, and from there I used him for my own personal real estate needs.
