A Referral From Minneapolis Real Estate Agent Cotty Lowry Shows Why Other Real Estate Professionals Choose Madeline Island Realty
At the beginning of August, I received a phone call from Minneapolis area Realtor Cotty Lowry, inquiring about a Madeline Island property owned by one of his clients.
Cotty Lowry is a well-known and much respected Realtor in the Twin Cities area who specializes in the south Minneapolis area. He enjoyed a stellar career as a residential Realtor with Coldwell Banker Burnet, becoming one of the top 40 sales associates at that firm in 2002. Cotty is now a partner and owner with the Minneapolis Lakes Area Keller Williams office and a member of the select Keller Williams International Associate Leadership Committee. He's also a member of the Board of Directors of the Minneapolis Area Association of Realtors (MAAR) and a fellow Minnesota CRS.
After our conversation, Cotty put one of his best clients in our hands, sending us a referral listing for a home on Madeline Island. We love referrals of course, but it is especially gratifying to receive a referral from an agent with Cotty's background and credentials in the real estate industry.
Great real estate agents know how to find others with the same level of competence and industry knowledge. When sending a referral to another area, a great agent knows where to search for the most competent agent in that area and a great agent knows what questions to ask. Great agents do their homework when sending a referral and they make a recommendation based on facts, not on emotion or hype.
A large percentage of vacation home and second home buyers who choose Madeline Island come here from the Twin Cities metropolitan area. They buy here not only because of proximity to the Minneapolis and Saint Paul metro, but also because of the extraordinary beauty of Lake Superior and the unique quality of life which Madeline Island offers.
About a month after we listed the property belonging to Cotty's Minneapolis clients, he told me "I knew I sent this referral to the right real estate company". And coming from a top-quality real estate professional like Cotty Lowry, that's high praise indeed.
