      • I can't not say enough good things about Amie. She was overly helpful and accommodating with me for my first home purchase. She far exceeded my expectations and was the absolute definition of professionalism. I feel that I was fortunate to have her reply to my initial inquiry and would be more than willing to recommend to anyone!

        - randall51286 -Bought a Single Family home in 2019 in Rock Hill, SC.

        - touchberrya - Sold a Single Family home in 2019 in Fort Mill, SC.
      • Landon has a unique gift and after our experience with him selling and helping us buy a home I can honestly say this is his Purpose. We had other realtors with selling our home in the past and all I can say is am glad this young man was ready and available for us this time. He was very professional and so consistent! Amazing customer service! My husband and I had gave up owning our dream home until we met Landon Albrick! We can't thank him and his team enough!

        - Latonya Leach - Bought and sold a home in 2019 in Lesslie, Rock Hill, SC 29730.
      • I had a great experience with Pam and the Stephen Cooley Real Estate team. This was my first home buying experience, so I didn't know everything to expect. She was super helpful throughout the whole process. She listened to all my concerns and took a lot of the stress out of the process by being knowledgeable and genuinely caring about if I found what I was looking for. I would and have already recommended her for any friends looking to buy or sale their homes. You will have a great experience

        - zuser - Bought a Single Family home in 2019 in Plaza-Shamrock, Charlotte, NC.
      • Melissa worked very hard to get our property ready for sale. She was always a pleasure to work with and went above and beyond what an agent would normally do as we were not based locally. She organized contractors on our behalf and did a good job of keeping them on task. I would recommend her to anyone selling a house

        - bethandgiles - Sold a Single Family home in 2019 in Chester, SC.
      • We absolutely loved working with Danielle. We moved from Phoenix to Charlotte with our two babies earlier this year. Danielle helped guide us from start to finish from neighborhoods to negotiations. She took the lead in coordinating all conversations between our buyers agent as well. She always kept our family informed of next steps and items to keep an eye out for. She will be our lifelong agent!

        - james patrick day - Bought a Single Family home in 2019 in Park Crossing, Charlotte, NC.
      • Debra has been instrumental in our house buying process while we were in another state. After filling out a contact form on her group's website, she immediately contacted me and began gathering a list of needs and wants for our future home. She always took the time to get answers to us when we had questions and assisted us with a live walk through via FaceTime due to us being out of state. Her knowledge of the area was beneficial in knowing we were buying a home in a good area for a family. I highly recommend Debra and her team for any house buying decisions. She certainly has many years of experience and it shows. We love where we live and couldn't be any happier. Thank You, Debra!

        - eatonm9 - Bought a Single Family home in 2019 in Rock Hill, SC.
      • Pam was very helpful in the sale. She was always keeping us up to date on the viewings and comments. If there was a question she was always available to take our calls. Pam was very helpful on things to do to help sell the house. Very good.

        - altwedt5 - Sold a Single Family home in 2019 in Fort Mill, SC.
      • I highly recommend Kellee Wilson, she sold my house for way more than I thought it was worth. It was easy and fast to work with her too. Her knowledge and experience with real estate is a huge advantage too if your trying to get top dollar for your house.

        - robert7chorny - Sold a Single Family home in 2019 in Matthews, NC.
      • I had a wonderful experience work with the Stephan Cooley group. Everyone was very professional and made the selling and buying process extremely easy. Above all, my realtor Sharon Salisbury was AMAZING!!! I would strongly recommend her to anyone in need

        - lyndrildb - Bought and sold a Single Family home in 2017 in Lake Wylie, SC.
      • A friend recommended Dale to me and I can understand why. Dale Loftis is not only knowledgable in his field, but is also personable, empathetic, and truly believes in helping people find a home. He helped me consider a home not just on my housing preference and budget, but my lifestyle and future life plans and goals. He was extremely transparent, making mention that while he is knowledgable and can answer 99.9% of the questions you ask; he will always find the correct answer for you if he happens to not know it. In term of showing, he did extremely well and he was able to give us his best advice in a multiple offer situation. We were able to view four properties, make an offer, and have said offer accepted in one day! Furthermore, Dale has great connections with great people when it comes to closing. Anyone he recommended to me regarding the closing process gave me the same great service as he did. To wrap up this review, I also want to make mention of his commitment to those he serves. I am person who does not drive due to a visual impairment--Dale was able to help me get back and forth to the house during part of the closing process. The experience working with Dale has been a great one; his love for his job, his commitment to his clientele, and above all, his ability to personable and empathetic make you forget he's a realtor showing you a home--because it feels like he's a friend helping you in the next stage of life.

        - zuser - Showed home in 2019 in Forest Lake, Fort Mill, SC 29715.
      • Melissa Starnes is amazing!! When our first mortgage fell through. She suggested another mortgage company. Well she was right!! We got the home of our dreams thanks to Melissa. To say the least she is a super agent. From start to finish she was our rock and support system thank you for Everything you did Melissa

        - ghuff43 - Bought a Single Family home in 2019 in Lancaster, SC.
      • We loved Pam from the minute we met her. Great personality and was willing to work with all our "picky demands" for a new home. She was a wealth of information on the area, neighborhoods, history, shopping, etc. Even though we have since decided to eliminate her area from our search at this time, we would highly recommend her to anyone who was interested in the Rock Hill/Charlotte area!

        - terri greg - Showed home in 2018 in Newport, Rock Hill, SC 29732.
      • A business woman who knows how to treat her clients like family while helping them become happy doing her job.She knows how to make a deal. Even with gov. in the middle of shut down im still closing on a house

        - mcclure c77 - Bought a Single Family home in 2019 in Henderson Circle, Charlotte, NC.
      • This company was extremely helpful when I was looking for my first time home. Agent Crystal Clemence really goes above and beyond for her clients including working with funky schedules. My work schedule was so varied I usually couldn't make it out to see houses until after business hours and she was a champion in helping me find a place that was perfect. She worked with me for close to nine months to find the right home and get it secured. She answered any questions I had and was very supportive in getting the house. Very knowledgeable. I was extremely pleased to have her as my agent

        - kathryn powell12 - Bought a Single Family home in 2018 in Rock Hill, SC.
      • Danielle was the only person in this process who returned my calls, emails and texts right away and if she did not know the answer, she found out right away. Went above and beyond the whole time. Highly recommend her and her staff. A++++

        - gse53 - Bought a Condo home in 2019 in Fort Mill, SC.
      • OUTSTANDING is an understatement! My wife and I viewed many different homes, changed our minds about what we were looking for many times and they accommodated us in everyway. We viewed homes in the rain and even on the weekend ( Thanks Amie Gallagher). Some documents had to be scanned and resent numerous times for editing. This process was difficult with me being overseas and my wife taking care of everything but we were well taken care of by the entire team. Even at closing my wife was trying to sign the documents and my kids were restless and Amie offered to walk around with them so she could get it all finished. I would HIGHLY recommend Amie and the entire staff at Stephen Cooley.

        - entrepreneume - Bought a Single Family home in 2019 in Rock Hill, SC.
      • Melissa is the best realtor around to deal with she made selling our home an easy process and fast on getting it listed I would recommend her highly on either getting your property sold or looking for a new house

      • Sharon is a very nice lady. She was always able to show me houses as soon as I asked and she know the area very well. I am a young girl and I was looking at houses in not so safe areas, and she let me know that. She had great ideas on negotiating, she got the seller to pay my closing cost and I really didnt have to put any money down, I found a great house and its all thanks to her! Highly recommend!

        - sarrahgrace21 - Bought a home in 2018 in Daniels, SC.
      • Landon was patient, responsive, and genuine. The purchase of a modest renovation got complicated quickly, and he went above and beyond to see it through. Overall, he and the Stephen Cooley team saved us over 20 percent.

        - zuser - Bought a Single Family home in 2018 in Rock Hill, SC.
      • Sharon was absolutely amazing. Within 24 hours after listing my house I had 2 showings already scheduled and had a full offer 48 hours after listing it. I could not have asked for a better Realtor. The whole team did an amazing job through the whole closing process helping me through it. I highly recommend using Sharon and her team if you ever need to buy or sell.

        - jonestravis1187 - Sold a Single Family home in 2018 in Steele Creek, Charlotte, NC.
      • Wow, Chris has been incredible this far in our search for our first new home. He arrived at the first showing several minutes before we arrived to check out the home so he could show us around. His knowledge and experience is incredible and he truly cares about all of his clients and loves answering any questions you may have. One of my favorite things about Chris is how he is a young inspiring individual and how prompt and responsive he has been throughout this entire process. If you are looking for an awesome realtor I totally recommend Chris to help with all of your real estate needs.

        - zuser - Showed home in 2018 in Riverview, Fort Mill, SC 29708.

        - Tiffany Drenth - Bought a Single Family home in 2018 in Stanley, NC.
      • Amazing! Extremely hard working and perfectly aggressive! She always got back to me in a timely fashion. Explained every step of the selling process very well and made sure I was comfortable with each decision prior to placing into action.

        - quentin2332 - Sold a home in 2018 in Mountain Road, Halifax, VA.
      • Pam Kirby was excellent to work with while selling our home. She is very professional and assisted us in every step from beginning to end. She offered great tips for staging, used great negotiation skills, and offered extra help with our dogs during inspection and walk through. Pam goes the extra mile to not only take care of her customers but to give them the knowledge needed to make good decisions. Pam Kirby is the best!

        - martha3boys - Sold a Single Family home in 2018 in Rock Hill, SC.
      • Landon is tremendously dedicated, responsible, diligent, professional, kind and courteous. He must never sleep because he is extraordinarily responsive. He clearly cares -- a very evident fact with Landon. My wife and I cannot be more pleased and thankful to have had Landon as our agent.

        - zuser - Bought and sold a Single Family home in 2018 in Clover, SC.
      • I had dreaded for years when the moment would come that I would have to sell my town home rental. I thought it would sit on the market for months and months while I continued paying the mortgage and utility bills. That didn't happen with the Stephen Cooley Real Estate Group! Within 48 hours I had multiple offers to choose from and closed within a month. The entire process went extremely smooth and I was guided along the way as to what the next steps were. I would highly recommend The Stephen Cooley Real Estate Group to anyone looking to sell or buy a home! They are very responsive, know what they are doing, and easy to work with. Many thanks for a job well done!

        - user2083423 - Sold a Townhouse home in 2018 in Fort Mill, SC.
      • Tyler DiPretoro, is absolutely one of the BEST agents I have EVER worked with. He is so professional, kind and genuinely had my best interest throughout our home buying process. Tyler communicated with me on a constant basis, and I never felt lost in this process. It took us almost a year to find that house that I could call home. He was always willing to show a house to me no matter what day of the week it was. Id recommend Tyler to anyone looking to sell or buy a home. He was super considerate of my time and understood that with a very demanding job that time was of the essence to get things completed. Tyler was there when I couldn't be for inspections and all things related to the home buying process. Thank you Tyler and I stand behind you and Stephen Cooley 100%.

      • I was not the easiest person to deal with. First, I chose my house sight unseen while abroad. Then changed my mind and went in another direction. All the early stage work was done from Greece and Sharon handled it as if it happened every day. The closing of my house was particularly tricky due to the way I chose to finance it. Sharon and her team stuck with me and did an excellent job. She was never too busy to answer my questions and always responded quickly and accurately. I love my new home. Thank you, Sharon. You're a true professional with exceptionally high standards.

      • Debra helped me purchase my first home - she was great at showing me properties that stayed within my budget, helped me navigate the unknown process of home buying, and made great recommendations in regards to financing, insurance and making sure I got exactly what I was looking for with my 1st home. I would highly recommend her to anyone - she was responsive, answered all of my questions, and was great to work with.

        - klgrn71 - Bought a Single Family home in 2017 in Lancaster, SC.
      • My Realtor, Brian McCarron, was fanastic to work with! He explained everything that was happening and always responded quickly to questions and concerns. The often unsung hero of the day was Crystal Rawlins, my Closing Coordinator!! She was so proactive and kept me informed of the process as well as contacted closing attorney, lenders and buyer's agents when things appeared stalled or they weren't communicating with us. She kept me sane during what can be a nerve wracking time as the final details and scheduling were handled!

        - mccullough justin - Sold a Single Family home in 2018 in Rock Hill, SC.
      • Pam was fantastic! Every house I wanted to see, she scheduled quickly. She was not pushy but gave me all of the facts and information I needed to select the home I wanted. She responded to all of my emails, texts, and phone calls. She is very professional but you can tell that she truely loves her customers and her work. I have truly enjoyed working with Pam and getting to know her!

        - laurenbrsmith - Bought a Single Family home in 2018 in Rock Hill, SC.
      • Pam did a great job for us. I dont we would have our new home if not for her assistance. She was patient and thoughtful to help us overcome obstacles and worked diligently with the sellers party to make sure we were satisfied. I would recommend Pam to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. Thank you Pam

      • Michelle works HARD for her clients! We switched from another, well known, agent and have been so incredibly happy with the care and attention weve received. She is never too busy to text or callshe values clear communication. We are very happy to be working with her!

        - mom4thebomb - Listed, but didn't sell my Single Family home in 2018 in York, SC.
      • We are currently working with Michelle in our search for a new home. Michelle has been so amazing to work with. She called us immediately after we inquired on a property and she has been so responsive and patient with us. We had had such a wide variety of questions from selling to purchasing a primary property to purchasing a fixer upper and she answered them all!! I highly recommend Michelle Ayer, she is by far the most knowledgeable agent Ive worked with.

        - Thomas Bruss - Showed home in 2018 in Rock Hill, SC.
      • Michelle has been diligent in searching for a house to meet our criteria, which has not been easy!! She has searched high & low, drove us to several neighborhoods, toured many homes with us & most importantly has not given up even when my hopes of finding something in our price range were dashed. She continues to search & reach out, with hopes of finding us the perfect home. I could not ask for anything more in an agent!

        - kathycarreanderson - Showed home in 2018 in Steele Creek, Charlotte, NC 28278.
      • Pam was an amazing realtor. She was unrelenting in finding just the right house for us. Pam spent so much time showing us houses and providing her expertise when we needed it. Thank you Pam and Stephen Cooley Real Estate group!

        - karenroof48 - Bought a Single Family home in 2018 in Steele Creek, Charlotte, NC.
      • Rick is amazing and a pleasure to work with. We were relocating from CT and he took us around to 12 houses in one day all around Fort Mill so we could get a sense of the town and various neighborhoods. Unfortunately none of the houses were our dream home and we went back to CT without finding our forever home but he really teased out our checklist of what we were really searching for. Because we couldnt travel back because of work and kids we kept working with Rick who FaceTimed us at several different houses. We ended up trusting Rick so much that we bought our forever home without stepping in it until the walkthrough on the day of closing. We could not be happier with our new home and with all of the help and professionalism from Rick. Id highly recommend him to anybody that is searching for a new home.

        - lee johnmc - Bought a Single Family home in 2018 in Fort Mill, SC.
      • My husband and I had the pleasure of having Crystal Clemence as our realtor. Crystal was not only professional but also quick to answer any questions that we had as first time home buyers. Crystal frequently went to look at houses for us since we were out of town and would send videos to help give us the full experience of seeing the house. We were very thankful for such a smooth and easy buying process! Would recommend her for anyone! We also got to use the moving truck that comes with buying a home with Stephen Cooley Real Estate Group. What a great perk!!

        - sarahnwebb - Bought a Single Family home in 2018 in York, SC.
      • She was amazing! My fianc and I had never purchased a home before, so we were nervous and had thousands of questions. But Melissa was extremely knowledgeable, always available at any time of the day (such a good sport), and did everything possible to help us close on our beautiful home. On top of all that, her passion for what she does is undeniable and she truly cares about her clients. If you are looking for a realtor you can trust, count on, and celebrate such a huge life decision with - Melissa Starnes at Stephen Cooley is the realtor for you!
