catch the school bus here. To be that person who helps them find the brick and mortar where that happens is one of the most important and fulfilling things a realtor can do. I love my job, and I hope my clients see that in everything I do.” Meet CAROL COOKE . Carol is the personification of a very long list of all things Sotheby’s. A frequent world traveler, Carol could easily call Brazil, South Africa, France, Australia, Germany, Jamaica, The Dominican Republic, Russia, and England her homes away from home. And she has contacts in each country for our clients who are looking for properties in all of the 72 countries where the Sotheby’s International Realty brand has offices. She has copious relocation experience, and has served clients at all purchase levels, from million-dollar-plus clients to the first time home buyer.
Carol and her husband, Mick, have lived in Ballwin’s Meadowbrook Country Club for 20 years. “My husband is from Sheffield, England, and our blended family of 7 has experienced all the best that west county has to offer. We love living here, and my clients come from all parts of St. Louis, and the US. This is such a wonderfully diverse city, and every seller and buyer brings a new dimension to my real estate portfolio.” Her clients have grown accustomed to a level of service that she brings to every transaction. “This is my job, and I know that with every interaction they count on me to make their sale or purchase seamless, stress-free, and as enjoyable as the process can be. I mean, who doesn’t want to wake up the morning after a closing and believe they made the right decision, they negotiated confidently and strategically, and they are certain that their goals throughout
the process were met. It’s my job to give them that experience every single time, whether here or across the globe.” And finally, meet CANDACE FARMER. Candace earned her Executive MBA in 2019 from the Olin School of Business at Washington University in St. Louis. An accomplished and gifted professional with a dynamic business and personal portfolio, Candace engages and consults clients from all walks of life. “I am a firm believer in the concept that knowledge is power. There is really no substitute for knowing what you are talking about, for understanding the market around you, and having the ability to translate that invaluable information to help a client make informed and exciting decisions. Buying or selling a home can be a roller coaster experience, so knowledge and expertise are paramount.” Candace, her husband Joe, and their two girls are part of the daily fabric of the west county community. Candace is actively involved in local politics, and husband Joe is a councilman. “We place ourselves in positions to help our neighbors. We support them because that’s the beginning of community. Sometimes that means giving advice to a client who needs another bedroom for a growing family, sometimes it’s helping them know who to call at City Hall. I know I’ve done a great job at the end of the day when I have helped to make someone in my community glad that they live in a west county neighborhood. These are our neighbors, and we are here for each other.” r
