     The COLE TEAM is a full-time mother/daughter team assisting clients with their home selling and buying needs for over 40 years. Family is what brought the COLE TEAM, a.k.a. Meriellen Cole Arenz and Stephanie Cole Patterson, to Forsyth County many years ago. "My brother was relocated to the area and at the time my father was ill...we all wanted to be together to "do life" and help each other. Within a few months we all moved our families here. Mom and I were determined to share our real estate knowledge and serve our clients. We've always done things differently and from the heart which I think sets us apart." said Stephanie.

      Above all else, their clients will tell you the COLE TEAM offers a fresh, technological driven approach to make their client's real estate experience worry-free and enjoyable. Their dedication to their clients has helped them to close over $15 million in real estate consistently every year, even in a down market which places them in the top 1% in the nation. They've also added several assistants, home stager, photographer and a lender to their team to aid with client needs. While the "numbers" sound nice, it's not what keeps this team going strong, "We feel so blessed to be in a position we can serve others. Nothing gives me more gratification than helping families with the most important investment of their lives. We strive to net our clients more." says Meriellen. 

      Both Meriellen and Stephanie agree that their biggest measurement of success is their client's satisfaction with their experience. They were recently honored by Forsyth County News with the 2015 honor of "BEST REAL ESTATE TEAM IN FORSYTH COUNTY."

     If you or someone you care about is thinking of a move call the COLE TEAM. They'd be honored to put their experience and expertise to work for you.

Team reviews

This is the second time I've worked with the Cole Team. I can't say enough about their professionalism, knowledge, and responsiveness. They are great at what they do and you can tell they enjoy it. I can't recommend them highly enough.

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 in Cumming, GA.

Steph and Meriellen are the best. They truly care about us and would never compromise our needs or their own integrity for the sake of the deal. The Cole Team is very well-respected and does things the right way. Steph really listens and made sure that we were happy every step of the process. I would not hesitate to call upon the Cole Team for all of our future real estate needs.  More Less

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $275K in Alpharetta, GA.
Primary point of contact: Torie Roush

I worked with Torie Roush from the Cole Team, and she made buying my first home a breeze. Buying a first home is a big and scary prospect, and the more I read about it the more reluctant I felt. But once I was contacted by Torie, things went on cruise control mode, and everything started falling into place. She negotiated good offer terms, gave us good referrals when needed, and was there to answer all our questions (and there were many). She is also very knowledgeable about the Alpharetta area. All in all, it was a very pleasant and smooth experience, and I would definitely recommend her and the Cole Team to anyone looking for a real estate agent.  More Less
