My first blog post, so I guess I should introduce myself. My name is John Cooper, I am the co-owner of the John Cooper Realty Team located in greater Sacramento area. My office is located in Roseville which is great because it gives me a fairly central location to the entire area. If I need to head to Elk Grove or Marysville/Yuba city they are only about 30 minutes’ drive.
Why we are in the business of real estate, is probably the only thing that differentiates myself and each agent from each other. (Weird thought there.) What I mean by this is that each agent is in the industry for their own reasons, mine is 2 fold. This first is that I love to solve problems. When a homeowner or prospective buyer is looking to make a move in real estate they have a problem and I have the solution. I have the knowledge, expertise and drive to get my clients what they need in a stress-free, easy and smooth process. The second reason why I am in this business is because I just love real estate and real property. When I see a rundown house or a piece of land my brain kicks into high gear. What could I do with that, I think, as I drive by. Could I fix the house up and make a profit or could we do something with the dirt that makes sense or creates a benefit.
A little about me. I grew up in a small town just west of Roseville called Pleasant Grove, yes there is a town called Pleasant Grove. We have a stop sign and our own zip code. I went to a small rural school that is a one school, school district. I went to East Nicolaus High school and my graduated with about 60 kids in my class.
My hobbies include, hunting, fishing, snowboarding, photography, camping and I am also a volunteer fire fighter for the Pleasant Grove Fire Department.
I would describe myself as a little quirky, obnoxious, somewhat introverted unless around my friends and extremely loyal. If a friend were to ask me to drive up to the mountains in the middle of the night to save them from car trouble, I would, because I have done it.
My goal with this blog is to brain dump my information to help homeowners understand the real estate industry.
