Get to know Dana Cook

When you're choosing an agent to represent you, it certainly is about experience, but more than that, it is about the connection you have with them.

My business philosophy extends from my prior career as a teacher.  I believe that my commitment to educating the client regarding the selling and buying process greatly impact my clinets abilities to make sound decisions. When the client feels that they have all of the data; they are able to move forward confidently. Their faith in my ability to get the job done is reinforced by our frequent communication and the ease in which they are able to reach myself or my assistant. 

As a teacher, I was always taking additional classes and seminars to improve upon my skills, wanting to make sure that my students had an enriching environment to grow in. I have carried this over to my real estate career by attaining my Graduate Realtor Institute (GRI) certfication and participating in several national coaching programs. I am constantly striving to be on the cutting edge of our industry by staying in tune with our changing market conditions and trends. For the past 3 years, I have been one of the top producing agents in the McHenry County area. I am involved in my local community as a board member for the District 158 Education Foundation (a non-profit organization raising funds for grants and scholorships for teachers and students) and am a graduate of the Lake in the Hills Community Leadership School. My passion for real estate stems from my desire to help others to reach their goals.

I am honored every time a family chooses to let me participate in one of life's more challenging experiences - buying and selling a home.

My success in real estate stems from helping buyers and sellers reach their dream of home ownership. First time home buyers are thrilled with my step-by-step guidance through the buying process. From our intial, in-office training - to handing over the keys on closing day, my first-time buyers are completely aware of what to expect along the way and prepared in advance for each step as it comes. When I assist my clients in the purchase of new construction, they know that I am with them throughout then entire transaction. I don't just sign them in at the door and expect the builder representative to take over. Through candid discussion, we are able to put together a home that meets their families financial and physical needs. My out of town buyers appreciate my in-depth knowledge of the area and the many resources that we provide to make their move go smoothly.

My attention to detail and organizational skills help calm the nerves of the sellers that I represent. My clients recognize the stregth of my marketing plan by the repeated success I have at selling homes in their neigborhood.  Coupling these strengths with fierce negotiating skills instills confidence in my clients that their home will sell. They know that I am working to protect what might be their largest financial investment.
