The Cocotos-Scott Real Estate Group of Kimberly Cocotos and Kristen Scott recently joined Allie Beth Allman & Associates. The duo was previously at Virginia Cook Realtors.
“We have nothing but great things to say about Virginia Cook,” Cocotos said. “It took us a long time to decide but we eventually just felt this was the best move for us,”
Scott and Cocotos first met while doing charity work together. After becoming friends they decided to team up professionally three years ago.
“We like to say that we tried each other out first and found out that we were a good team,” Scott said. “Between the two of us we round out the team really well because we can play off each other’s strengths and help each other out when we need to.”
Cocotos has been in real estate for nearly a decade. Prior to that, she did medical device sales and marketing. She left that field to raise a family, but soon realized that being at home full time was not for her. She earned her license in 2010, and has been in real estate ever since.
Scott’s background is in finance. She worked first in the corporate world and later as a financial consultant before leaving to join Cocotos. Despite the career change, she still utilizes her financial experience on a daily basis.
“What I was lacking, she was strong in,” Cocotos said. “It’s made for a good team and we’ve found that there is a lot of crossover in our networks.”
As for the move to Allie Beth, Cocotos said they wanted to take their business to the next level and felt like they needed a company with a stronger market presence. Among the other factors she and Scott cited were Allie Beth’s marking efforts, the company’s long-term vision and the fact that it is a part of the Berkshire-Hathaway organization.
They made the move at the end of 2018, which Scott said was the perfect time to switch. Now that they are settled in, they are ready to get to work.
“I think we are going to have a big year,” Scott said.
