I agree with almost everything (except the comment about Greenfield - snobby??? it's an agricultural town)
It would also be helpful to know what side of town your husband will be working - that can affect the commute time.

I would probably check out Zionsville or Noblesville first. (I personally live in Carmel)

Zionsville has excellent schools and the Village of Zionsville is just picture-perfect. Home prices are a little higher there and the commute to downtown on I-65 could be done in 30-40 minutes, most days. Most (if not all) of the smaller, more rural area of Whitestown is adjacent to Zionsville and within Zionsville's school district. The home prices in Whitestown are generally less expensive, there is new building (both residential and commercial) going on right now, it's closer to I-65 but also is still close to the Village of Zionsville and has Zionsville schools.
Downtown Zionsville

Noblesville also has good schools (not ranked as highly as Zionsville, though). Noblesville is the county seat of Hamilton County (where Carmel and Fishers are located).
It has a lovely downtown with an historic court house and charming older homes in the area. Downtown Noblesville has shops and restaurants too. IN-37 has lots of new shops/restaurants/entertainment.
Noblesville has a mixture of both older and newer homes, and is generally less expensive than Zionsville is. However, Noblesville is further from Downtown, more in the 40-50 minute range, depending on exactly where in town you're headed.

Nice building in a decent downtown, suburb north of Indianapolis.

Please let us know if you have any other questions!
