My wife & I would like to put our feelings into ink regarding Jo Ann Cook. We purchased our dream home in the Florida Keys-Marathon in July 2020, in the middle of a pandemic. The process of finding our home & closing could not be anymore seamless. We did our closing 1500 miles away live online, WOW!!! "A breeze"!!! It has now been sixteen months since we closed, and Jo Ann Cook is still serving and sharing local & market information. Recently Jo Ann informed us of the market value of our home and comparable properties that sold in 2021. Who does that?? Jo Ann Cook does. WOW!! We made the right decision with Jo Ann Cook & Ocean Sotheby's Internationa...— Steve Callum
I can’t rate Jo Ann Cook high enough. We bought 3 houses through her real estate agency during our time in the Florida Keys. Each transaction was smooth and done with the best professionalism. When we decided to move on from the Keys, Jo Ann was once again put in charge of the sale of these homes. Again, it was all done with professionalism and generated top dollar for us. If I was to ever reinvest in property in the Florida Keys, Jo Ann Cook would be the first call that I would make!— Dan and Elise Warrick
There aren’t enough superlatives to describe Jo Ann Cook. She is the best realtor we’ve even known. She’s the full package; knowledgeable, kind, conscientious, fun to be around, a leader in the community and just plain good at what she does. We recommend her without hesitation!— Linda Granaghan
