ANNE COOK, BROKER
Here it is - Your Local - REAL ESTATE CONNECTION
My career as a real estate professional has given me so much reward. Supporting buyers and sellers in acquiring or selling the home or investment they have worked so hard for is an exciting proposition. As your agent, I will provide excellent customer service, a plan that is conscientious of your personal situation and a results-driven atmosphere. I would love to have the opportunity to talk with you, and at your pace, we can move forward.
If you are selling your home, I will start with a market analysis. It is used to compare similar homes that sold in the last six months to a year to your property. We can discuss any improvements you have made in your home and what the activity is in your neighborhood. We can also discuss a few things you can do to enhance all the amenities your home has to offer. I can then determine a list price according to the current market environment. You can depend on my dedicated approach to selling your home.
If buying, I will take the time to understand you and your family's needs. We will discuss different neighborhoods, schools, amenities, parks, shopping and your drive time to and from work. I will refer you to an excellent lender so your mortgage will be pre-approved and ready to go when we find your perfect home. If pets are part of the family, we can view properties that accommodate their needs too. You will be able to organize your home search and set up alerts for new homes that come on the market that meet your specifications.

"Anne was always on top of everything. Answered any and all questions. If she didn't have the answer for whatever reason, she went out of her way to make sure she got it as quickly as possible and back to me.
