Are you a renter or a landlord, a buyer or seller? 29-year veteran REALTOR®, Certified Property Manager, 2014 Edgar J. Hansen award winner and 2009 REALTOR® of the Year Martha Cooper will find the win-win solution to meet your residential dreams.
A lifelong Sonoma County resident, Martha Cooper explains all sides of the Real Estate equation in terms you can understand. Martha’s goal with regards to real estate management: “It’s important for tenants to know their rent is invested well into a home worth paying for. It’s equally important that landlords know their rental is a great source of income.” Numerous testimonies from tenants and landlords attest to her success in achieving this dichotomy.
Now with 28 years at Century 21 Bundesen, the high volume of properties she and Century 21 Bundesen currently manage verifies this success. Martha’s commitment to excellence and professionalism is also evident by spending over 90 hours in classroom instruction to earn the California Association of REALTORS® Graduate REALTOR® Institute, a nationally recognized GRI real estate designation. Martha completed an intensive series of 14 live lecture courses designed to improve marketing and negotiating skills, learn the latest in technology, provide an understanding of the new disclosures and legal aspects of real estate, and become familiar with the latest trends in financing; all designed so that clients will be provided with the best service.
She can take tenants from renter status to homeowner status. “I’ve served many tenants who didn’t realize they could be and have become homeowners,” said Martha. She develops and maintains strong relationships with all her tenants and landlords by providing a level of competence, thorough service her clients trust.
As a licensed real estate agent, she can serve landlords wanting to transition their rental investment into a real estate sales opportunity. In addition, she proves invaluable to landlords desiring to increase their portfolios through 1031 exchanges. Once the purchase is made, Martha as the property manager gives them a “headache-free rental investment” experience. Martha continues to develop her skills through numerous channels.
