  • Stephen listed and sold my home

      I didn't deal w/ him/ i dealt with the tall kid.

    • Stephen listed and sold my home

        Stephen helped me in the sale of my home and purchasing a new smaller home. Stephen and his team showed excellent knowledge of the area I was interested in. Their professional, informative and work hard for you. I would recommend them to anyone.

      • Im there for you. This is what Sherry Avant told me at my closing but it was true throughout the whole process! My initial contact with Sherry came about me asking for more info from the Zillow app. Sherry was always available when I wanted to see a house and greeted me with a big smile. Whenever I tried to communicate with her via phone or text she was available immediately or would respond within a reasonable time. Once we started making offers her office people at the Stephen Cooley Real Estate group were quick to get the paperwork ready. To top it off, they lent me their moving truck free of charge as long as I filled the tank. Wow! Highly recommended realtor and realty group!

      • Stephen Cooley Real Estate Group made my first-time home buying experience one of comfort and reassurance. My realtor, Dale, was transparent about the process and made sure that I had all the answers I needed before advancing in any part of the home buying process He was also transparent about considering my lifestyle, values, etc. in regards to purchasing a home so I could make a purchase that fit my budget and would be a home that I could enjoy for years to come. I was shown four properties, made an offer, and managed to have that offer accepted in one day--absolutely amazing! Furthermore, Stephen Cooley Real Estate Group also has plenty of great connections. Everyone they recommended me to for the closing process was hospitable, personable, and empathetic of my needs and concerns. I would 100% recommend the Stephen Cooley Real Estate Group for anyone looking to buy a home--whether it's your first or fifth.

      • the very best the south has to offer. Amie was at the top of anybody's game!!!! we met on line from NY in Feb of 2011. she showed us homes for almost a year, because we needed an offer on our house in NY before we could make a bid here in Charlotte. anybody else would have walked away, but not Amie. she stayed the course. pick us up at hotels, drove around area we would like. when we finally were able to make a bid, she handled everything for us. the contract, negotiated a price, was there for the inspections, appraisals, found us a lawyer, everything and i mean everything. do not get fooled by her young age, because she is as good if not better that any seasoned pro i have met. this is the best thing that happened to us, except her recommending Luis Fernandez in NY also from Keller Williams. he listed our home and within 45 days we had an offer and was able to start our life in Charlotte. Amie is now our friend and we will see a great deal of each other. speaking of friends she also introduced us to people from NY and now we are good friends. if Keller Williams , Amie and Luis were insurance people you would be "in great hands" with them. the best team, one stop shop ever. if you are selling or buying, this is your first and last stop!!! the very best!!!! TEN STARS if there was that option.

      • Amie is a wonderful realtor. She was there anytime day or night to answer any questions that me or my husband might have. As a first time home buyer, my husband and I had a lot of questions and did not understand a lot of things. Amie was patient with us the whole time. She was able to listen and be attentive to us and explain anything we needed to know in terms that were understandable. You will not be sorry if use Amie Gallagher...she knows what she is doing.

        - user514453 - Bought a home in 2011 in Forest Lake, Fort Mill, SC 29715.
      • I was very pleased with Stephen Cooley's knowledge of the current economy and his advise as to what we should list our house for was very accurate. We had been trying to sell the house ourselves for several months and when we listed with Stephen Cooley for a little lower price, we sold our house in one week.

        - user743487 - Sold a Single Family home in 2012 in Rock Hill, SC.
      • We would highly recommend The Stephen Cooley Team for your real estate needs. The team approach that he uses certainly adds to the level of service you receive. Stephen and his team are knowledgable, dedicated, and professional. Our home was listed, sold, and closed within three months. We believe the fast turnaround time was due to the expert advice we received from Stephen Cooley and his team.

        - user93606527 - Sold a Single Family home in 2013 in Rock Hill, SC.
      • Everyone on the Stephen Cooley Team was polite, professional and helpful. They were conveniently located at their Ebenezer Road office and always ready to offer advice.Their various marketing skills, quick responses to our questions and concerns made them stand out above the rest!We would recommend them to anyone in the future

        - le0716e - Sold a home in 2014 in Provincetowne, Charlotte, NC 28277.
      • All around great experience, very professional and great about return calls. I will use him in the future. My credit wasn't strong enough at the present time, to buy. Stephen gave me the number to a group to help me out with the situation I am in. Very helpful and considerate to my situation very Professional. Thank you.

        - zuser - Showed home in 2014 in Lesslie, Rock Hill, SC 29730.
      • Stephen is the best realtor I have ever worked with. His experience with the local York County and Southern Mecklenberg areas is second to none. He is also an excellent communicator and negotiator. One of the primary benefits of working with Stephen is the comprehensive team of folks he brings to the table: from selling to buying, marketing capabilities, exposure, contract negotiation, repair requests, and all of the dozens of nuances required in any real estate transaction, Stephen's team assists the seller and buyer through the entire process. In short, when you hire Stephen Cooley you are hiring a complete team and you simply cannot put a price on peace of mind. Albeit this is probably not the norm in today's market but Stephen sold our home in 6 days! In working with his buyer's agent we were able to find the right home fairly quickly as well. I would highly recommend the Stephen Cooley Team to anybody who wants a full service real estate pro.

        - CharlotteToFtMill - Bought and sold a Single Family home in 2014 in Yorkshire, Charlotte, NC.
      • We were very satisfied with the service. Not only were they knowledgeable in their field they were very personable. We still keep in touch via face book. All around great people which helped for a great experience. Thank you so much for helping us find our home.

        - user8493113 - Bought a Single Family home in 2010 in Rock Hill, SC.
      • We viewed two houses, made an offer and the price was settled in three days with satisfaction on both parties. Closing issues were resolved without incident and consistent communication that answered all our questions.

        - user9081958 - Bought a Single Family home in 2012 in Fort Mill, SC.
      • We have purchased and sold many properties in the Carolinas and have worked with many agents over the years. Heather and Sharon are now our only real estate team. Give them a call and tell them what you need and they go to work for you immediately and will not stop until you are fully satisfied. Their combined experience and record fast response times make them hands down the most knowledgeable and helpful team in the region. If you're interested in purchasing or selling or anything to do with real estate, look no further. They've got you covered!

        - user3061357 - Bought and sold a Single Family home in 2012 in Blacksburg, SC.
      • I have to say that the team really met my expectations. I advised as to what I was looking for and found my dream home almost immediately. All of my requirements for my new home were met and then some. I am very pleased with the service by the team and the fact that they were so very helpful when problems arose with the seller. Negotiation skills were excellent. To top things, they were also able to refer me to a great insurance agent that gave me an EXCELLENT rate on my home. They are a team with beautiful personalities that are genuine. If I ever had to look for another home, I would contact them, however the home they found me is perfect and I look forward to growing old and raising my children in it and entertaining my grandchildren one day.

        - user587326 - Bought a Single Family home in 2012 in Clover, SC.
      • Sharon Salisbury helped us find our home. This was a short sale, and the seller's bank created one road block after another. Sharon never became frustrated, and she steered the process throughout, and was always there to answer any question. She has great contacts in the industry, and she recommended very professional and thorough businesses to do the appraisal and inspection. I highly recommend her. I don't know how to rate negotiation skills because we did not need to negotiate on price, but I bet she is pretty good.

        - user2990232 - Bought a home in 2012 in Filbert, York, SC 29745.
      • Real Estate Carolina Group helped me find a home for my father, who is elderly and new to the area. Heather and Sharon kept in close contact and took us to see LOTS of homes! They were with us every step of the way, even through the crazy financing we had to do, and it made it so much easier. I highly recommend them.

        - user15495513 - Bought and sold a Single Family home in 2011 in York, SC.
      • Stephen Cooley Real Estate Group provided the best buying experience around! The real estate agent, Amie Gallagher, took time with me even during early morning hours to late evening hours. I could always count on her to help find the answer! As a first time home buyer, I had several questions that I asked the entire team; whether it was the real estate agent, closing coordinator or Stephen Cooley directly, everyone graciously answered everything. I recommend Stephen Cooley Real Estate Group to everyone and looking forward in using them again in the future. Thank you Stephen Cooley Real Estate Group!!!!!!!

        - Bigbyz2 - Bought a Multi Family home in 2015 in Third Ward, Charlotte, NC.
      • Overall we had a great experience. Angie Mitchell was always on top of our calls, texts and emails, even nights and weekends. She led us through the processes of both selling and buying with confidence. We knew heading into the process of buying that it was going to be a competitive market for the house that we wanted. Angie did a great job advising us about putting in the right offer on the home that we wanted that was receiving multiple offers. In the end, we ended up with exactly what we were looking for! Definitely would recommend to potential buyers or sellers

        - atlong13 - Bought and sold a Single Family home in 2016 in Rock Hill, SC.
      • Sharon Salisbury was our realtor with Stephen Cooley. She was the best, also sold the prior home. Closed on the sale in 2 days, found the house of our dreams in a week! Would definitely recommend their services!

      • I can't say enough how great the Stephen Cooley group is! Katie King was our realtor and she went above and beyond to make sure all of our needs were met and that everything went as smooth as possible. This was our first experience with home buying, and the entire team made sure everything was in order. They even have a free truck for you to use when you're ready to move. I will not use any other agency in the future, and I will most definitely recommend them to everyone! Thanks guys

      • Definitely recommend Tyler DiPretoro. He has been very helpful, patient, knowledgeable, and helped us to find a great home. He works very hard and makes sure he is available when you need him.

      • Stephen Cooley treats you like family! They are upfront and honest throughout the process. They also walk with you every step of the way. My realtor called to check on me throughout the financing process, he comforted me when things got tough. When I made it to the end of my journey, he was sitting at the table with me to be eyes and ears foe matters I may not understand. Did I mentioned that I am now a first time homeowner at 26 years old! Thank you Stephen Cooley! You all literally helped to change my life.

        - boonerl1914 - Bought a Single Family home in 2016 in Rock Hill, SC.
      • I have purchased two homes and sold one with her aid. Very little was needed to be done by me because of her knowledge and connections. She was even able to help my sister find a beautiful home, even though she had lost faith in the system because of the way she was treated by a previous realtor.

        - fidelbyrd - Bought and sold a Single Family home in 2014 in Rock Hill, SC.
      • Sherry was GREAT to work with. Not only did she help us see every house we wanted to see, but she really shined in the offer and purchase stages. She diligently project managed the entire purchase process, coordinated activities between inspections, the lender, the seller, title, insurance and other stakeholders. For busy professionals like my wife and I, she was a tremendous value add to our buying process. Even after close she continued to follow up and check with us to ensure that everything was as expected.

        - tbyrum - Bought a Single Family home in 2016 in Indian Land, Indian Land, SC.
      • Crystal helped my husband Chris & I buy our first home. To say we were blessed to find Crystal as our agent is an understatement. She had to deal with two people with completely different tastes in houses. But Crystal worked with us for a year to find us not just a house but a home. Crystal was there with us through every step of the process and helped us get a beautiful home at an affordable price. Never once did she ignore us or let us down. She truly is an agent with a heart of gold. If you're looking for an agent that will work hard to find the perfect fit of a home then look no more! Crystal Clemence is the best!

      • She was fantastic! I was a first time home buyer and she found houses that fit what I was looking for and in my price range. In the end she was able to help me through the process of a for sale by owner. The owner was a first time home seller. Melissa was able to help myself and the home owner go through the process of purchasing and selling a home. She was very knowledgeable and the process was easier than I could have ever imagined!

      • Tyler was very professional and not pushy at all. He showed us houses that were on our "wish list." We were very pleased with his services and will recommend Stephen Cooley to anyone looking to buy or sell.

      • Melissa was extremely kind, knowledgeable, and full of patience as she help me sell my old home and buy a new one. Her diligence led to me receiving an offer on my home within the first week of listing and showed me numerous new places to consider. I was very impressed with her and even recommended her to my parents - who listed with her and also sold their home!!

We have 5 children who tagged along to every house visit just about and she was so patient and kind to our kids! She got them the cutest "monster inspection" reports and a book to show that their new rooms were monster free and safe! We just loved her !!!!! Wonderful experience for buying our first home.

      • Stephen and his group helped us sell our first home in Rock Hill after relocating form Schenectady, NY. Although we were working with another realtor during that relocation process, we were disappointed in her performance when it came to selling our home. When the listing expired we chose Stephen's group becasue we heard from so many satisfied customers in this city alone! they are professional, polite, and experts in both NC & Sc properties! They are great returning calls and making suggestions and referrals!

        - user5357392 - Sold a home in 2013 in Newport, Rock Hill, SC 29732.
      • I've had the opportunity to work with Stephen and several of his agents on multiple occasions and without a doubt, they're some of the hardest working, most client-focused real estate agents around. They take very seriously their responsibility to make the process of buying or selling your home and they do everything within their power to make it as hassle-free as possible. As with any complex transaction where multiple parties are involved, there will undoubtedly be issues that arise, but Stephen and his entire team work tirelessly to correct and overcome any obstacles or challenges that might present themselves. If you're thinking about buying or selling a home in the Charlotte or Rock Hill area, give Stephen Cooley and his team a call. You'll be glad you did!

        - cindyhafer - Showed home in 2017 in Riverview, Fort Mill, SC 29708.
      • Dale has a tremendous amount of local knowledge, having lived in the area for many years. He was able to guide us to areas where we could find a home built to the standards we were looking for. He knew which realtors typically built in what neighborhoods or even sections of neighborhoods. He was great during negotiations for both the sales price and the punch list items after inspection.

      • Melissa Starnes is absolutely WONDERFUL! Our house was live for seriously SIX hours and was sold. She was very very prompt with getting back to us with responses and listings that met our want/needs. When our dream home went live, Melissa went above and beyond getting us in for a walk thru at the first available showing. She was very thorough about everything involving the selling and buying process. And made it such a smooth process. My husband is a third time home buyer & this is my first- she was very patient with me and helped me to understand everything through both buying and selling. She was never NOT available. We always heard back within a matter of minutes. Which we LOVED. Melissa is just THE [ link omitted ]!! :) She is our forever go to realtor!!!!

        - dechaffee - Bought a Single Family home in 2017 in Gastonia, NC.
      • Melissa went ABOVE AND BEYOND to bring our family back home to York County! She was helpful in picking out houses that matched exactly what we were looking for, on time, was willing to work around our sons nap time with no issues at all, was creative in her solutions to any problems or concerns that arised and most importantly was PATIENT as we were on the hunt for our home. Once our previous home went under contract and the search needed to be expedited, she handled that change seamlessly as well! We would recommend Melissa Starnes to any of our friends searching for a realtor in the Rock Hill area and will definitely plan to use her when we are ready to sell!

      • We made a move across the country from the west coast and Tyler was great with coordinating tours when we came out in search of our new home. We found a house and Tyler coordinated all the inspections and the subsequent negotiations to our satisfaction. We bought the home and have been here for over a year and love it! So glad we worked with him! Highly recommend him to everyone.

We were able to get full listing price with Reggie and her team and they were there for us every step of the way. Professional and efficient, I highly recommend The Stephen Cooley Team for all your real estate needs!
