Why A REALTOR®

DON'T BUY A HOME WITHOUT ONE

Having a qualified REALTOR® to represent you in your home purchase or sale is one of the most important first steps to take.  The Cook Team is a group of professional, knowledgeable REALTORS® that will guide you every step of the way.

WHAT IS A REALTOR®?

A REALTOR® is a real estate agent, but not all real estate agents are REALTORS®.  Only a professional member of the National Association of REALTORS® is able to use the term REALTOR®, and the member must adhere to the strict Code of Ethics; a code in which the professional trade association is founded.  The Cook Team is proud to be professional members of the National Association of REALTORS® and holds ethics in the highest regards.

WHAT CAN A REALTOR® DO FOR ME?

Having a professional REALTOR® on your side that is experienced in the buying process can make the difference between a smooth purchase and a stressful one.  A REALTOR® that is a local expert in your preferred area can assist you with your search, helping guide you through the numerous neighborhoods and communities to narrow down the perfect one that suits your lifestyle and your needs.  The Cook Team also has a user friendly website and app available at no cost to all of our clients.  In addition, we will guide you through the transaction process, working with your lender and the title company to ensure a smooth sale. 

If you are looking to sell your home, a professional REALTOR® familiar with your specific market area will be able to guide you through what to expect in the process.  The Cook Team will perform market research to properly help price your property, market your home in various avenues for the utmost exposure, and guide you through the sales process, all while keeping your best interests at heart.  You may also use our Instant Property Value Tool to see an estimate of your property in today's market.

Choosing the right REALTOR® for your real estate transaction is key.  Having a qualified REALTOR® represent you in the home buying or sales process ensures that you have a professional on your side, always representing you and your best interests through the entire process.  Contact us today to let The Cook Team help guide you through your next real estate transaction.
