Testimonials

There are many things I can say about the high quality of service I try to provide to my home seller and home buyer clients, but probably none would be as credible as testimonials from some of my recent clients themselves.

So please take a moment to read the following testimonials. I hope they indicate my experience and integrity, as well as make it clear how much I enjoy helping people with their real estate needs.

I asked for advice on what to eliminate from my house before showings. After following Frances? suggestions, the house sold immediately! This lady knows her business. I chose Frances as my realtor because of the service she gave me ten years ago when I was looking to buy a house.

And I did. Thanks Frances!J Woodard, Pittsboro NC

Dear Frances, our sincere appreciation to you and your staff for such an incredible service and professionalism on the purchase of our Ocean Isle Beach home. We appreciate you being so patient with us during the entire process.A and D Hunt, Raleigh, NC
In the spirit of the season, I wanted to thank you for the hard work you did in finding a house and helping us get into the house. It has been a wonderful six months in this house. We love it. I am usually a pretty self reliant person and I have bought 4 houses in my life. 3 were done without a realtor because I felt like I could "save" the money. I have to say that working with you has absolutely changed my view of what value a realtor can bring to the transaction. There is no doubt in my mind that we could not have gotten our house without your tireless efforts, willingness to be on call at a moments notice to show us a house and your understanding of the market to ensure we got a good value. So, here we are six months later and as I think of what I am grateful for this season, having you as our realtor is certainly one of the many things I am thankful for. Our family has thoroughly enjoyed this second home and you made that happen for us. THANK YOU and I hope you and your family have a fantastic holiday season.T and T Young from Cary, NC
Frances, Thank you for your professionalism and sage advice since listing our home. We knew we were getting the best and we weren't disappointed. Please visit us whenever you're in the Asheville area. Thank you for helping us realize our dream.Sincerely yours, B & D Dillard, Shallotte, NC
I was always impressed by Frances. Her professionalism was always apparent throughout the sale process. I would highly recommend her to any future buyers.B. Quintano from Ocean Isle Beach, NC
France Warner is one of the best realtors we have ever worked with. When we asked her opinion on property we have been interested in purchasing, she will give you the pros and cons and her honest opinion . There is no other agent we would ever work with. Frances is totally into making her customer satisfied whether purchasing or selling a property . She cares for you as a human being.R. and C. Wolgemuth from Henderson, NC
My wife and I had a great experience with Frances. After dealing with a different realtor for two years where we knew absolutely nothing about the market and how our house related, we asked Frances to take our house on. She had facts and data that gave us quickly a reality check regarding the market at OIB. She gave us frequent updates regarding the situation at OIB. We did not feel left out and forgotten. In summary, we felt that Frances was definitely on our side. We knew when and where our house was advertised. We knew when it was shown by other realtors. We would have liked to received a better price, but she showed us with current data that the price was fair in light of today's markets. There is no harder working realtor in our view.G. and L. Taylor, Christianburg, VA
We can't say enough about Frances. We would highly recommend Frances to anyone who is selling or buying real estate. Frances always put forth the extra effort and works extremely hard to get the job done. She knows the market, makes suggestions she feels will benefit the transaction, works well with prospective buyers and sellers, her memory is terrific ( I wish I could remember clients who might be interested in a certain property that has just come on the market), her feedback was wonderful and always prompt. Frances always handled herself in an effective, competent and professional manner, a pleasure to work with in every way.L. and R. Alexander, Shallotte, NC
Working with Frances Warner (Cooke Realty) has been an extremely positive experience. She was very proactive in helping us find the right property for our needs.

Wiggins from Charlotte, NC

We enjoyed Frances' help in selling our two homes and wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone interested in buying or selling a home.M. and M. Kurtic, Ocean Isle Beach, NC
?Frances was wonderful to work with. I?d have to say of the seven residential real estate transactions and realtors that I?ve worked over time with she was by far the most organized and thorough of anyone I?ve ever dealt with. She had an amazing knowledge of the market, was superbly prepared, and represented us well. Her attention to detail was incredible. I wouldn?t hesitate in recommending Frances to a friend?E. and A. Hill, High Point, NC
"Frances, I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate the work you did selling the house for us. You did such a good job helping us find the house and buy it, back in 2000, that I never considered not coming to you to help us sell it. Your marketing strategies exceeded my expectations, your professionalism was always outstanding, and your communication with us was always timely and meaningful. You answered every question quickly and accurately. And when you had to be out of town you left us in the very capable hands of your daughter Elizabeth. You have trained her well. All that I have said about you could easily be applied to her as well. She should have a very rewarding career in real estate as a result of your training. I would heartily recommend you to anyone interested in buying, selling, or investing in real estate in this area. Having a contract with you means getting the best service available, at the same cost as the run of the mill agents. You should be proud of your accomplishments. Cooke Realty is lucky to have you on-board."M. Brown, Ocean Isle Beach, NC
"We do appreciate all that you and Elizabeth did to list, sell and handle all of the required transactions that were necessary to make our closing a smooth transition.

We will miss it but we are enjoying being close to our children and grandchildren. Thank you so much."Best Regards, D & A Wheeling, Greensboro. NC

We have worked with Frances Warner as a buyer and a seller. She is always professional and accessible when you need to talk to her. She is very knowledgeable about the island of Ocean Isle Beach and the surrounding area. She is always friendly and helpful. We would definitely recommend her to anyone looking to buy in the area.C & R Wright, Hickory, NC
Thanks so much for your excellent help with the sale of my parents? beach house, and with the purchase of our new beach house. Thanks in a large part to you this was one of the few ocean-front closing in the last several months. Many would have given up under the circumstances, but you persevered. My wife has remarked how calm you are even in difficult circumstances and that certain is the case. We love our new house. You can be sure that I will be a great ambassador for you to all whom I come into contact.Very truly yours, R & L Womble, Raleigh, NC
We enjoyed working with Frances. She was not pushy, and helped us get the best deal possible on a great condo.Job well done! M & A Holoman, Greensboro, NC
I am extremely happy with the way Frances conducts business and have had a wonderful experience having her be my agent. Frances listens to her clients and does not make a decision for anyone. She will take any offer that is valid and while she offers her opinion she will do anything that is ask of her. Many real estate agents decide what someone will take and make the decisions themselves. Frances is a true professional and understand her position is to bring people together with out personal prejudice on the numbers. Frances is very tenacious and will not give up. She is fun to work with and really loves what she is doing. Maybe that is why she is so good at it. I do not know of anything she could have done better and I will continue to work with her on future projects. I would recommend her very highly.J. Dunning, Ann Arbor, Michigan
Thanks to Frances Warner, we are proud owners of a condo at OIB. Frances always presented us an up to date listing of available property and guided us in selecting the best property to meet our needs. She listened to our concerns and readily addressed them to be resolved. We knew she had our best interest in the final choice and made this transaction as smooth as possible. She remains very professional and knowledgeable in her expertise as a top realator. I highly recommend her for any future purchase or sale of property.C & F Adams, Nashville, NC
Frances was a fabulous realtor to work with. She listened to all of the points that were important to us and what we were looking for. She was honest about the various properties that were for sale on the island and was realistic about what would and would not be a good investment(especially regarding rental income). She is very knowledgeable about the area.B& K Khan, Highpoint, NC
