If you are buying or selling in South Forsyth - the Cole Team is your best bet when it comes to real estate. The housing market moves fast these days and if you want to buy with ease or sell quickly - you need a strong realtor who can navigate the complexities of this market for you with confidence. This mother / daughter team worked TIRELESSLY with us and handled even the most difficult real estate situations with extreme poise, professionalism and energy. While others say they are a "team", Stephanie and Meriellen define it - and the benefit to you ... two experienced realtors on your side! The buying process: If it's South Forsyth, these ladies are in the know! Their extensive experience makes your buying process easier - from understanding amenities in a neighborhood, school districts, household upgrades (and craftsmanship) as well as local quality resources to do "handy" work post sale; these ladies are a wealth of knowledge and helped us go from considering a move to home owners in less than 30 days!!!! The selling process: I cannot say enough good things about Stephanie and Meriellen when it comes to selling! This is a seller's market and strong negotiations are key - these ladies made sure they fought for every dollar we wanted to get. We encountered several tough situations with buyers from contracts falling through due to no financing, requests to lease to purchase, extreme buyer requests ... some of the crazier things you can imagine in a contract process! I could not be more thankful we had these ladies representing us. They kept their cool and were the upmost professionals in at all times, even when emotions would start to get the best of us! With all of the chaos, we still managed to sell our home for what we wanted after being active on the market for less than 2 weeks total and going through several crazy contract situations {{{and all done in less than 60 days}}}. The best part ... in addition to buying a beautiful new home and selling our very loved and dear house to a new family; I managed to make two new friends along the way. These ladies are tops and you would be crazy NOT to call them! Less ... More

No one knows more about Real Estate than the Cole Team! I listed my house with them on a Monday and I received an offer on Friday of the same week. Even more impressive is the fact that the State of Georgia was shut down Tuesday, Wednesday and half of Thursday due to the first ice/snow storm in February. If you are serious about selling your house, call the Cole Team!

I can't say enough about the service we received from the Cole Team. We sold our home and had a 30 day window to find our next dream house. Stephanie and Meriellen seemed to be available at any hour of the day to show us homes and answer one of our many questions. Not only did they find our home, they provided great ideas around the bidding, inspection and moving process. At the end of the day, they are just very nice people that work hard for their clients and they have the experience to really know what they are doing throughout the entire process. Less ... More

We leased out our home in Georgia and bought a home in Florida. Very stressful time for us, but Stephanie and Meriellen were the best, they not only were very professional and pleasant, but they treated us like we were family. In two years hopefully we will look to sell our home and we truly can't wait to have them again as our real estate agents! They were always very informative, pleasant and always returned calls promptly!! Thank you to the Cole Team!!

Everything was a breeze!!! I did what they suggested I do regarding the preparation of my home for optimum sales results! The house was 4 weeks listing to closing! Their knowledge of the area, and great relationships with other agents was very impressive! A friend of mine sold several of her homes with The Cole Team with similar results! Of course I saw no other possibility except to call them, I am so glad I did! The service they provide goes far beyond the listing, or even sale- they have an extensive team that met all my needs, including finding my new home! Less ... More

I would have to say that these 2 are the best in the community in selling homes! I was very impressed with the sense of urgency they both had and the realistic figures when selling a home. I also loved the fact that they had a "stager" come in my home to give us ideas and advice on what buyers look for in a home and this was at no charge. I would recommend the Cole Team to anyone especially if they are in a situation that involves urgency and accuracy!

We had an incredible experience with the Cole Team. They helped us stage our home, gave advice on asking price, and negotiated the closing in a way that worked best for us and the buyer (which we appreciated). They sold our house in 1 day at a price that we thought was more than we would get. Unbelievable.

We contacted the COLE Team because we needed agent(s) with experience in our community and who had a no-nonsense approach to selling homes. Meriellen & Stephanie were very professional in our initial meetings, and in consultation regarding preparing it for sale; we listed it immediately after following their recommendations. We were particularly interested in the COLE Team's marketing expertise, and they proved their worth with TWO OFFERS in the FIRST 4 DAYS! Needless to say, we were VERY pleased with these agents, and would recommend them to others looking for professional representation during the selling process. Thank you for the opportunity to provide a summary of our customer experience! Less ... More

We worked with Stephanie and had a fabulous and rewarding experience. She listened to all of our wants and needs in our next house and presented us with several great matches. She was able to provide us with information about the area that we would never have been able to find on our own using an Internet search. I'm certain she was helping other families find their next home, but she always made us feel like we were her one and only client. She responded quickly to all of our questions and requests, any time of day. I would highly recommend the Cole Team to help you with your real estate needs. Less ... More

We started the selling of our home with another agent and relisted with the Cole Team when we weren't happy with the progress after 8 months on the market. The Cole Team listed our home within 24 hours of meeting with them and it was under contract in 48 hours! We then worked with them to find our next home and can't tell you what a wonderful experience it was to work with them. They are extremely knowledgeable about the area and extremely diligent/persistent in negotiations. We would recommend them to anyone. Thank you for all your hard work Cole Team! Less ... More

The Cole Team, Meriellen and Stephanie are remarkable! Our house SOLD in about two weeks and they listed the house across the street and it SOLD in a week. Of course I am sure they would not say they sell every house in a week or two. However, they are truly on top of everything! They did a wonderful job on marketing our house with the video online for viewers to see. I have noticed that so many other realtors have poor videos, and you barely get a clear view of the house. Both of these ladies are very professional and guide you every step of the way. You won't go wrong with this mother/daugther team! THANK YOU MERIELLEN AND STEPHANIE!! Less ... More

The Cole team was very helpful in meeting my needs in finding a new home. I worked mainly with Stephanie. As we looked at homes, we discussed what I liked or disliked about each home we viewed and she continually came up with more suggestions until we finally found the home that I ultimately purchased. I would recommend this group to any prospective home buyers. They were very knowledgeable about the new and resale home market.

I highly recommend the Cole Team. They were organized, professional and were great to work with. This was my second experience working with them. They sold our home for us 6 years ago when we moved out of the state. That was such a great experience that we used them again as our buyer's agent moving back to GA. As expected, they were amazing. We wouldl use them again as well as recommend them to our friends.

Meriellen Cole is absolutely wonderful! We were not easy on her as our purchase had too many complexities to chronicle here. The bottom line is that Meriellen never got frustrated. It was a pleasure to work with someone so positive and knowledgeable. We got the house we were looking for at the price we wanted to pay. My recommendation is that anyone reading this review should do themselves a favor and contact the Cole Team the next time you want to buy or sell a house.

The Cole team did a fantastic job selling my home. My only complaint is that it was sold too quickly! In a down market, i had expected 6-8 months before an offer. Receiving and agreeing to an offer within one week of the listing was beyond my expectations. Their fact-based approach to identifying a proper sale price, use of technology to list the home and general care that was shown to my wife and I leaves me very confident in recommending them to any family or friends in the area.

The Cole Team was Amazing! First of all, they listen. My parents were moving from out of state and needed to find a home. I found the Cole Team online and sent an email. They called me right away. I discussed with them that I would be looking for homes on my parent's behalf. After a couple of weeks of looking with the Cole Team my mom and dad came to Atlanta to review the homes that I had selected. The Cole Team took my parents to all of the homes and let them get familar with the area. During this process my parents and I changed some search criteria and they were very understanding and helpful during this process. Finally we found the Right home for my parents and the Cole Team made the buying process very easy. They were professional, organized and made sure the move was painless. My parents love their new home! Less ... More

I would recommend without hesitating the Cole Team to find or sell your home. I was looking at first for a new home in our community and when I asked the builder's agent who I should contact about possible resales, she even recommended the Cole Team. What I liked best was their knowledge of the area from retail to subdivisions. They listened to our needs and found the right place for us. I will use this team again when I decide to sell and relocate.

We were so delighted and fortunate to find Stephanie Patterson of the Cole Team to help us find a lakeside cottage on Lake Lanier. She went so far and beyond what anyone would expect to find us "exactly" what we were looking for. In the cold, long harsh winters of upstate New York we longed for a get-away in the south. We knew what we wanted and she found it for us at an unbelievable price. We will be relocating to the south in a few years when we retire and will need a larger house at that time and would not even think of using another realtor. Stephanie's knowledge of the real estate market and personal attention to us was remarkable! On top of everything else she is a wonderful person who we now value as a friend. Less ... More

The Cole Team is professional, knowledgable and a delight to work with. From our first meeting, I felt confident that they would work harder to present and sell my home than other Realtors I had interviewed. Their Internet marketing was the best I'd seen on the web. They covered every imaginable aspect to reach today's tech savvy buyer. They also offered the services of a professional stager to assist me in showcasing my home to its best advantage. He made it look fresh and inviting. Most importantly, The Cole Team sold my home in an exceptionally short time. They took the stress out of the contract process by communicating effectively with all parties, 100 percent of the time. I enthusiastically recommend The Cole Team! Less ... More

Our family has used The Cole Team several times in the past few years. They are knowledgable and understanding of our families needs.

They provide excellent and extremely knowledable service in this area of Georgia!
