Why Me? How Can I Help?

As both an experienced Realtor® and a licensed mortgage broker, I'm uniquely qualified to serve all of your real estate needs. Although I assist both sellers and buyers, I specialize in first time home buyers. Because I work with a team of financial consultants with a portfolio of many lenders, I have financing available for every need. I'm even able to get buyers with minor credit problems into the home of their dreams. If you are looking for a home, the benefits of having an agent with this background should be obvious. If you are selling your home, it means that I can offer financing to assist buyers with the purchase of your home, thus increasing the number of potential buyers! 

I possess a wide range of real estate experience and will help you to find or sell your home in a timely and professional manner. I do this by creating a customized marketing plan designed specifically for your unique home. I will make sure that your real estate transaction is smooth and stress-free by taking advantage of cutting edge technology, products and services. I keep in constant touch with sellers to make certain they know about all actions taken on their behalf.

As you can see, there are plenty of reasons to allow me to be of professional service to you! Why not call me today at 727-459-5460 or click one of the appropriate logos below? 

Selling a home is a complicated process. When you decide to sell your home, in addition to knowing all the legal requirements that help prevent costly law suits, you need a professional to provide expertise in the three "Ps" which constitute the most important aspects of selling your home. Pricing, Preparing and Presenting. I can help!

Buying a home is sometimes a complex undertaking. Hiring me, and my full service staff of real estate and mortgage professionals, will help save you time and money. I will determine your needs and wants and help you find your next home and/or sell your current home. 

I specialize in helping first time home buyers and will work when you need help. I provide information to help you understand the purchasing process. Although it can be a daunting experience on your first purchase, I'll help walk you through the entire system, saving you time, worry and expense!
The steps to buying your home are easy. In order to simplify the process, all you need to do to purchase the home of your dreams is:
  1. Click the "Just Listed" button below. Complete the simple form describing the homes you would like to have sent to you in your e-mail. If you view listings on this site that you would like to see, write down the "MLS" number and provide it to me.
  2. Contact me at and I'll help you to complete the mortgage application form. I'll have my loan officer contact you and search out the perfect financing to suit your budget and circumstances. Having this pre-approval will arm you with one of the most important negotiating tools available. (Next to me!) Once that is done, delay making any major purchases, as this will affect your credit rating and it will be checked by the lender again prior to final loan approval.  
  3. Select homes you would like to see from those I send to you. We'll arrange a convenient time to visit and view those homes.
  4. Select the home of your dreams. I'll do the rest!

I enjoy helping everyone. The elderly hold a special place in my heart. Recently, I received the following message from the adult daughter of one of my clients:

"Thank you so much for taking such good care of my mother, Mr. Cooke! It helped me get used to the idea that she was moving away. It meant a lot to both of us!" J. Haggar, St. Petersburg, FL

Another client offered this testimonial:

"We have dealt with 7 realtors in the course of buying and selling 4 homes in our lifetime and Bud Cooke has gone far beyond our most demanding expectations. He is absolutely the most professional, courteous, ethical, sincere, motivated, enterprising, and hard working of them all. As a bonus, he's just a real nice guy and fun to be around. I could go on for quite some time singing his praises but I'll just cut to the chase -- Quite simply, Bud Cooke IS ... "The Gold Standard of Realtors"."

Ed and Carolyn C., formerly of Largo, Florida. Now residing in Jacksonville, Florida

Another client offered this testimonial: 

Bud, Thanks for all your hard work. The closing went smooth. You really earned your commission, with your hard work & efforts.

Rich D., Formally of Largo, now residing in Port St. Lucie.
