As we all know, buying a home is probably the biggest purchase your family will ever make and it involves many difficult decisions. It makes sense to get the best professional counsel available to save you time, stress, money and costly mistakes in addition to representing your best interest in negotiations. Many buyers pick a home that they are interested in from a photo on the Internet and then take the Realtor that comes with the house! It has been said that a picture speaks a 1,000 words. Photos of homes on the net can sometimes be misleading. What appears to be a great deal in a good location may actually end up being a waste of your time. The same is true with Realtors. Not all Realtors are alike. You owe it to you and your family to work with the best and experience Realtor to represent you in the purchase of your dream home.

Before you list your home For Sale, there are two important questions that should be addressed before you sign the Listing Agreement. Both are critical to a successful sale. The first question is "How much should the list price for my home be." When a sellers price their home within an appropriate market value range for their home, they will net more money for their home, sell their home more quickly, and with a lot less stress. Maureen Cool will provide you the information and counsel you need to properly set your asking price and get you home SOLD in the least amount of time. Perhaps the second and most important question is "Which Realtor should I select to market my home?" NOT ALL REALTORS ARE ALIKE! You owe it to yourself and your family to get your money’s worth. It takes more than a Realtor’s sign in the front yard and entering your home in the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) to get your home SOLD. This approach represents the lowest level of service for which you are still paying a top dollar service fee. Maureen Cool is one of the top listing and selling agents in Highlands County in terms of getting RESULTS! There are many reasons why she sells so many homes. Maureen Cool is a master marketer with a very proactive approach. Even though your property may be listed in the database of available homes for sale in the Multiple Listing Service (MLS), it takes creative and aggressive marketing to get the word out and compete with all the other sellers for qualified buyers. Maureen’s proactive approach is based on an effective mix of newspaper advertisement, direct mail and Internet marketing.

I live out of state and Maureen helped me by suggesting what needed to be done to give the home a fresh look. She even found a painter for me, sent me before and after pictures And followed thru with a fast sale Maureen comes highly recommended! I also made a good friend in Maureen.
"We feel very lucky to have "found" Ms. Maureen Cool through a random inquiry about a property that was listed on the internet. After meeting with Ms. Cool one time, she knew what we were looking for, our budget and what we expected our retirement home to be. Being 800 miles away, Maureen was our eyes and ears as she kept our best interest at heart and was there when we couldn't be. She found us a incredible property, which was a "short sale" and 10 months later, Maureen's dedication and persistence paid off !! In our eyes, we are now the proud owners of our "perfect piece of paradise" and we looking forward to our retirement years in Sebring !!! Her professionalism and her work ethic are outstanding and we would HIGHLY recommend Ms. Cool for any or all of your Real Estate needs."
