Team reviews

Chris Cooke and his entire team were extremely knowledgeable and helpful. The Chris Cooke team truly made my first time "selling" a house an easy process. I appreciated his exceptional negotiating skills that helped me get more for my house than what most homes in my neighborhood were selling for. My house was sold in Baltimore during the spring of 2015.

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $300K in Canton, Baltimore, MD.

Chris is an experienced agent with good knowledge of the Baltimore neighborhood where the house we sold was located. He initially over estimated the selling price. Selling efforts were adequate but his only suggestion over time was to lower the price. Ultimately we sold the house for what I believe is a price I could have gotten without an agent.

We are truly sorry that Mr. Brinnier was not satisfied with our services and we were shocked to receive this feedback as he had not expressed any reservations in accepting his offer. He had purchased this home in July 2006 at the peak of the bubble. Because Mr. Brinnier was "underwater", we provided him with the highest sales price that we felt was achievable for the market and instructed him that he could make price reductions earlier in the process if needed. He decided to list the property for $5,000 more than the highest sale price that we thought was achievable. Professional HDR home pics were taken and we purchased premium advertising. We called agents and scoured our database to find a Buyer. Despite the pricing, we generated 46 showings in 65 days and sold the home for 91% of our recommended price in 65 days. We make every effort to negotiate the highest price possible but the Seller makes the ultimate decision of whether to accept the offer or continue marketing the property.

I have used Chris to successfully list and sell several properties in Canton and Highlandtown. Not only is he extremely knowledgeable about the real estate business but his customer service and professionalism provides for a very smooth transaction.

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 in Bellona-Gittings, Baltimore, MD.

Chris Cooke has been involved in over 25 sales for us in the last few years and we are happy to continue our relationship with Chris and his team.

Handling so many transactions in Baltimore City and Baltimore County, he has a current grasp of the market and trends and brings a high level of confidence to both buyer and seller. His office is a machine for selling; and we appreciate their expertise in straightforward and more complicated transactions.

His team is highly organized, coordinating the efforts of other brokers, attorneys, and title companies to insure that closings happen on time.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $275K in Baltimore, MD.

We were amazed that our house sold so quickly, the professional style that Chris and his associates used was the BEST. Very professional and the picture layout by his photographer was excellent and we think was very influential in selling our house.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $325K in Upper Fells Point, Baltimore, MD.

Chris is very knowledgeable of the local market and has put together an impressively efficient team supporting all aspects of the sale. His marketing process is truly excellent and could not have worked better with us - a professional photographer, high visibility and many showings, resulting in offers within a couple of weeks on the market and even over the Holidays! His contractors are promptly available. His admin and settlement staff experienced and responsive. That alone makes for a great agent and I have not mentioned his best quality yet... Chris is extremely professional, honest, open, rigorous and fair, all of which are qualities always advertised with Realtors but very seldom truly found to the degree that Chris embodies them.

Sold a home in 2011 in Cherry Hill, Baltimore, MD 21230.

We had to sell our house as we were moving out of the country. Chris' expertise and attention made the process much less stressful and ultimately resulted in a sale we both felt very satisfied with. Chris is no nonsense, knows the market, and knows how to market your house.

Sold a home in 2011 in Fells Point, Baltimore, MD 21231.

Chris Cooke and his whole team were a pleasure to work with. Time on the market and sale price were right in line with what Chris estimated they would be. Listing photos and marketing materials were beautiful and represented the property well.

The whole process was easy and everyone was very respectful of showing instructions and always gave adequate notice of showings, inspections, etc.

Weekly updates of showing activity and feedback were sent and Chris was very responsive to any questions or concerns. We are very satisfied with Chris Cooke and his entire team.

Sold a home in 2010 in Tarton Hill, Perry Hall, MD 21128.

We have been working with Chris Cooke and his team for approximately 3 years and we have sold over 50 homes in the Baltimore Metropolitan Area with Chris as the listing agent in that time. He and his team are excellent. Our properties have received maximum exposure and Chris is very skilled at managing the negotiating and closing process. Transactions are conducted professionally and smoothly. I highly recommend Chris and his team.
