REALTOR® Michelle Cocké is determined to close the deal for her clients! Once she takes you on as a client, Michelle is dedicated to making you happy to the very best of her ability. Whether you spend one week or months viewing homes, she’s ready to work until you find the home you’ve always dreamed of!
Before becoming a REALTOR®, Michelle worked in the fashion industry for Zulily in Seattle as an assistant buyer for women’s apparel. As a very detail-oriented person, Michelle thrived in the environment there, and she worked with several vendors to put on sale “events” for the website from start to finish. A few of her responsibilities in this role included onboarding new vendors, selecting and organizing samples, studio coordination, image selection, pricing, and negotiating cost.
Michelle was born and raised in South Africa, and she moved to the U.S. 8 years ago to work and continue her education. During her time here, she’s lived in San Francisco and Seattle, and currently she lives in the Browns Point neighborhood of Tacoma. Newly married, Michelle has 3 wonderful “bonus” children with her husband, and since her husband is a basketball coach at a local high school, she gets to spend a lot of time supporting the youth in her local community. Michelle also loves working out, traveling, and watching HGTV!
Q: What can clients expect when working with you? How do you typically communicate with them?
A: For me, in-person communication initially is very important because it is the start of a very important relationship with my clients. I do not only want my clients to sell or buy a house, but to enjoy the entire experience because it is one of the biggest decisions and investments that most people make in their lifetime. I would say my style is unique because I take pride in the fact that I come from a very diverse background that can easily relate to people from all walks of life. My life experience is what makes me the person I am today. Without the hardships and really working hard, I wouldn’t be who I am today.
Q: Why are you excited to join Windermere Professional Partners?
A: I am excited to join WPP because their focus expands further than just the real estate market. WPP is actively involved in the community and giving back. The energy and environment of the offices, REALTORS®, and staff is amazing and very welcoming, which makes starting off so much more exciting. I can tell that the brokers are not focused on the competition of this industry but more so helping each other and being a part of the team.
