“Casey is aggressive in his marketing efforts and had an answer or contractor for every need, from addressing curb appeal to repairs that were needed after I had an inspection done”
“My experience with Casey Cooke began when I received a phone call from one of his team members and I happened to pick up the phone. I found Casey to be very client-focused with a comprehensive approach to selling a home. After listening to his pitch, I had no doubt that he would be able to sell my house quickly and help me to get the top sales price. He gave good counsel up front and continued to do so until the transaction was complete. I never felt like I was in the dark or not in the loop on anything. Between Casey and his staff, I had real-time information throughout the entire process. Casey is aggressive in his marketing efforts and had an answer or contractor for every need, from addressing curb appeal to repairs that were needed after I had an inspection done. I was impressed with this added convenience, and with his overall efforts for a seamless transaction. In my experience, if one needs a house sold, Casey Cooke will get it done and will make it a very smooth process. I am glad I took the time to answer that call.”

I wish I was able to have Casey represent us every time we PCS...It was nice to ask something to happen and then it occurs with no oversight on your end!
Casey was awesome. I’m extremely satisfied with his level of service. After using USAA Movers Advantage for three other purchases/sales-I was leery about what he would provide. Additionally, I was facing two difficulties in selling our Oceanside home: I’m at Bragg and had a newborn arriving right when the home would hit the market. Casey worked with minimal guidance from me. That was huge plus on my end.
He kept me abreast of the process and what we needed to do. I told him I needed him to provide honest assessments and advice-and he provided both. If we disagreed, I was the decision maker. He maintained communication at all times and I’m sure we were not his only client. It was nice to ask something to happen and then it occurs with no oversight on your end.
I’m not saying you will duplicate our exact results as with our home sale-but we closed the sale a sizable amount above our list price due to small improvement projects (which Casey suggested) and how he got the word out about our house (Facebook, YouTube, open houses).
I wish I was able to have him represent us every time we PCS.

Then, even after the close of our home when the money was all exchanged, Casey took care of hauling all the trash that was left behind from the previous residents. He took the time to call someone and schedule the pick up, and he even paid for it making one less thing for us to worry about…
We wanted a Realtor that was all-around professional…committed, honest and level headed. It was a very busy time for us and we needed someone who could just get the job done. We knew Casey from Rancho Buena Vista Little League and loved the fact that he would give back a percentage to our local teams. We quickly came to see why Casey and his team are so highly recommended. With Casey as our selling agent, the sale of our home went great; however, we ran into a few issues with the purchase of our new home. First, the agent representing the sellers of the home we liked was not very professional and was extremely rude. Christine did a great job at handling our frustrations and letting us vent, while diffusing potential situations and keeping our eyes on the big picture. Then, even after the close of our home when the money was all exchanged, Casey took care of hauling all the trash that was left behind from the previous residents. He took the time to call someone and schedule the pick up, and he even paid for it making one less thing for us to worry about. We were about to take on a full renovation so it meant a lot to us that he handled all that. Those are just two examples of how Casey’s team went above and beyond. We were impressed throughout the whole process. Property transfers are usually never seamless, it is important to have someone who will really look out for your best interest and not just their pockets. When things go off track a bit, you need someone who will represent you professionally. Casey’s team did just that! They know the business and work well together. They are extremely professional and always take the high road. We LOVE our home and can’t thank them enough for their efforts in helping us own it.

Casey is North San Diego County’s Hometown Realtor!
We were first approached by Casey Cooke as he canvassed our neighborhood with a friendly phone call about selling our home. His timing was perfect – as luck would have it, we had been renting it out and decided it was time to list and sell. After researching and reading up on Casey, I found out that he was the go-to Realtor for North San Diego County and that he specialized in marketing and selling homes in our neighborhood. This was confirmed during our first meeting. I could tell that Casey knew the neighborhood, knew the market, knew what buyers would be looking for and was very connected. For example, he recommended an incredible jack-of-all-trades contractor to work on upgrades for our house. Not only was the work done well, but it was also done quickly which we appreciated to help expedite the listing. I would definitely use Casey again. He was always prompt and professional and came across as a true businessman helping to navigate the waters of a bumpy closing process. I am extremely happy with my experience and definitely recommend him for anyone looking to sell their home in the North San Diego area.

Casey is a great negotiator and strongly represents his clients.
I first learned about Casey Cooke through a referral search program. After our first meeting, I knew he was the right choice. He came well-prepared with numbers, home values and a comprehensive home seller’s packet for me to review. He was on time, professional and very honest and forthcoming with information regarding my home and the market. In addition to knowing the market conditions, Casey knows his communities. In fact, he had a buyer lined up for my home before we even had to list it. There were a few unexpected surprises with the buyer during the home selling process; however, Casey and his team were on top of everything and kept me in the loop. I happen to live in a different state than the home I was selling so Casey worked as my eyes and ears for me when I couldn’t be there myself and he represented my best interests while taking care of things on my behalf. He even stepped up and helped the buyer find a new lender to help facilitate the sale. One of the things I liked the most about Casey is that he respected the fact that I live out-of-town and promptly responded to my calls, texts and emails. He is a great negotiator and a top real estate agent. I highly recommend his services.
Casey is the hardest working Realtor we know. He consistently went above and beyond to keep our transaction moving forward.
We’d certainly recommend Casey Cooke. He has the two essential complements of people skills and real estate experience. He is a sharp negotiator and was always on top of things. When Casey first came over to look at our house, he began making valuable suggestions for us before we even had a signed contract in place. We were impressed with his candor and knowledge about what a buyer would be looking and asking for. He pointed out many useful things for us to consider before selling and gave us great advice. We scheduled a follow up meeting at his office where he presented us with his marketing package and guarantees – that was a huge reason why we chose him as our Realtor. Not once did we feel uncomfortable when working with Casey. What probably impressed us the most is how much he went above and beyond to do what was needed to satisfy the buyer and keep things in motion. We had to navigate the homeowners association management company and Casey was great at coming up with creative ideas to do so. He was a good listener and offered the right balance of reason and caution while giving us his professional insight. We couldn’t have done better with anyone else selling our home.

We felt like Casey’s team would drop everything to take care of us, even though we know they are always very busy.
This is the second time we’ve purchased a home using Casey Cooke’s services. We chose him because we know from past experience that he is the best there is. This time around, Casey not only negotiated with the sellers to pay for extensive inspection repairs, but to also pay for the closing costs! In addition to being effective, Casey is reliable and is always quick to respond. We felt like he would drop everything to take care of us and he always made sure we got to see the homes we liked right away. He is likable and friendly, which always made it easy to pick up the phone to call or text him. We couldn’t be happier in our new home and wouldn’t choose anyone else to work with.

Casey has a good mix of old and new Realtor practices. He still works directly with agents, buyers, sellers and vendors; yet, he is also very tech savvy. He made our dreams come true!
I’ve previously worked with Casey on a business level and liked how he handled himself. When it was time to sell a rental property, he was the first person I thought of. Casey handled the showings of that home with care, cautiously working around our tenant, and the home sold very quickly. Naturally, when we decided it was time to buy a home we once again thought of Casey. We were looking to buy a more complex, rural property with acreage and could tell that Casey knew a lot about them and that he was an expert on the market. Casey not only helped us find the right property with the best fit, but he finessed with the sellers to negotiate a contingency package based on the sale of our current home.
One of the things we liked best about Casey is that he has a good mix of old and new Realtor practices. He still works directly with agents, buyers, sellers and vendors; yet, he is also very tech savvy. He utilized tools and resources like professional photos, video and social media, but he still wanted to present our offer in person to the sellers as opposed to using email and a phone call. Casey was very on top of everything and it all turned out perfectly! We are very pleased with the transactions we’ve had with Casey Cooke. He made our dreams come true!

Casey got us into escrow so quickly and negotiated a shorter escrow that we were actually able to close on our old house two days before we closed escrow on our current home and my parents didn’t have to co-sign and we did not have to move twice. This saved us thousands of dollars from having to refinance at a later time…
We had a tricky deal on our hands because the people we bought our current home from wouldn’t agree to a contingency clause on the sale of our previous home. This meant we had to submit an offer on our new home without having first sold our house. I stressed to Casey that we needed our home sold FAST so we wouldn’t be stuck with two mortgages. With Casey’s awesome marketing, negotiating and sales expertise, and his eye for helping us cleanup and stage our home, we went into escrow in just FOUR days! We were originally going to have my parents co-sign in order to get our loan, but because Casey got us into escrow so quickly and negotiated a shorter escrow at 25-days, we were actually able to close escrow on our old house two days before we closed escrow on our current home and my parents didn’t have to co-sign! That literally saved us thousands of dollars from having to refinance later or go through the hassle of doing a quit claim on our new house. It all worked out perfectly! Then, to top it off, Casey continued looking out for us after all was said and done by helping to navigate concerns with the new owners of the house we sold. We cannot say enough about how great our experience with Casey Cooke has been. Only someone like him could pull something like this off. Casey deserves every ounce of his success. He is a hard worker, a true professional, a family man and an overall good person. He truly cares about his clients. We are so grateful for his efforts on our behalf and highly recommend his services.

Casey truly handles everything that the sale and purchase of a house might entail, and he is such a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend him to my friends and any prospective sellers in the North County area.
I received Casey’s card from my friend’s neighbor who had met with Casey and was planning to list his home with him. After my first call, Casey quickly came to my home to meet with me about my needs. He took a lot of time to listen to my situation and he helped me see the whole picture regarding the selling and buying of houses.
From the moment I listed my home, Casey was 100% available, even late into the evenings. He immediately responded to all my needs during both the sale of my home and the purchasing of my new home. He was respectful and I could easily talk with him about all of my concerns. I appreciated his straightforward advice as situations arose and I could tell that my best interest was always his priority.
Because of Casey’s exceptional Realtor knowledge and experience, his services were beneficial to me as both a seller and a homebuyer! Happily, my home sold in just two weeks. The purchase of my new home wasn’t quite as easy, but Casey never once wavered and he accomplished what needed to be done on my behalf. He successfully negotiated a price reduction after the contract was signed based on needed repairs that became known after the home and roof inspections were completed. He made repeated contact with the seller’s agent regarding a variety of problems she was failing to address, and he even came to my rescue by speaking to the seller’s son-in-law regarding a trash issue when the seller did not move out on time.
Casey truly does handle everything that the sale and purchase of a house might entail, and he is such a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend him to my friends and any prospective sellers in the North County area.
