Real estate is my life, enjoy meeting new families, and working with past clients. I assist families with relocation, sellers, purchasing new construction, move up buyers and first time home buyers. Each aspect of these areas has many rewards. With the designations I hold - GRI, CRS, ABR, CNE and e-Pro, they all give me the tools in which I can assist clients better in their goals for home ownership. I listen to clients' needs or wants before proceeding in a search, and trying to keep those in mind to achieve their goal. As a FULL-TIME REALTOR® I stay on top of the new rules that affect the real estate market and stay on top of market trends!
I believe in communication, and believe this my strongest virtue. Whether you have a home that is a tough sale or a buyer with 50 items on the wish list, I will work hard to get the job done.
My office is in the South part of Denver, but have lived and work all over the Denver metro area!
Your search for your DREAM HOME can start with my web site, or I can narrow your search into the criteria you are looking for and then set up a drip email from MLS. You should always speak with a lender to get "pre-approved". Lending today is much more difficult than it was in years past. If you have obstacles to hurdle, do them before you find that home of your dreams, so it does not slip through your fingers. Be sure you ARE a buyer, before you act like a buyer! When you have a pre-approval, this gives you more leverage in a transaction. In today's market, you need to be ready to commit when you find that DREAM HOME as homes are going under contract very quickly.
If you are new to Denver, and need assistance with schools, commuting times to work locations, and hospitals I can help you with these items.
Do you have questions about updating, finishing a basement, or your first rental property? Please call me, I would love to assist you with these questions. Many times home owners update their homes, and believe all they have invested financially, will be recouped when they sell their home. This is NOT the case. You will recoup most, but not all. I can provide you with stats on approximately how much you would realize on a sale --- remember do it for YOU, not for resale.
Denver has been my home for all but 6 years of my life! I LOVE MY CITY! There is so much to do here in the City, and enjoy outdoor activities all year long. With over 300 days of sunshine, it is easy!

Testimonials for Joan Cox
Don & Julie Hiller07/22/2013
A bit over a year ago, I became the financial representative for my uncle who had to move to a nursing home. In time it became clear that the move was permanent and something would need to be done with his Aurora townhouse. I live out of state so I was not in a position to spend much time on-site on the project. I enlisted the help of a downsizing business to deal with much of the contents of the townhouse. Joan Cox came highly recommended through them. I think think the recommendation fell well short of the expertise, wisdom, dedication, energy, and integrity Joan displayed throughout the process of preparing the house to sell, pricing it realistically, listing it to its advantage, getting word out about it, advising me on the suitability of offers, seeing things through the process leading to closing, and seeing me through the inevitable difficulties along the way. Throughout the process, I felt very much that we were a team, working well together on this project, start to finish. Joan is completely professional and at the same time relates in an understanding, caring manner. And if I hadn’t pieced together that she spends nearly all of her time helping clients, I would have said her main focus was on selling my uncle’s townhouse. I would not hesitate to highly, unconditionally recommend Joan to anyone in the Denver area considering buying or selling a home.

Joan Cox was a real partner in helping us get into our new home.
We were looking to relocate to Oklahoma and move into a home under construction. The sale of our home in Aurora and the timing of that sale was critical in making this move. Joan handled the sale of our house in Aurora from start to finish. After a market study of the area, she gave us a realistic estimate of what she thought our house would bring. This was critical in our decision to move and purchase the new place. She candidly pointed out the things we could do to make the house more marketable and steered us away from those things that would not be that much help in the sale.
Joan did a lot more than simply put a sign in front of the house and list the property in the MLS. She marketed the house with color flyers and ads in various magazines and newspapers. She used her network of contacts to find other realtors who might have buyers interested in a property such as ours. She held a number of open house showings and coordinated showings with other realtors. After every showing she got feedback about the impressions - both good and bad - from the other realtor and their client. Throughout the whole process, she kept us appraised of what was going on, both with what she was doing to sell our house as well was what was happening in the local real estate market and how that affected us.
When we received an offer on our house, Joan negotiated on our behalf with a counter offer that successfully got us a sale price that was very close to her original estimate of the value of our home. Joan was able to set up a closing schedule with the buyer that dovetailed perfectly with the closing on our new home.
Joan also helped us with the purchase of our new home by using her network of contacts to find us a realtor in Oklahoma that would represent us in that deal.
I have worked with several realtors over the years and Joan was not only one of the most professional, she was also truly concerned about her client's needs and finding a solution that worked for them.
