My wife and I were introduced to Bill by a close friend who worked with Bill to acquire a property several years ago. Bill worked with us to identify and purchase a property on which to build our retirement home. Throughout the process, which took about 14 months, Bill maintained a calm professionalism that helped buffer some of the bumps we encountered along the way. Throughout the twists and turns our search took, Bill always maintained a positive attitude and helped keep our focus on the end result. In addition, his intimate knowledge of northern Chester County, its history, residents and government officials proved to be a huge asset. Given our experience working with Bill and his staff we would not hesitate to recommend his firm to anyone looking to purchase real estate in this beautiful part of our state.
Lou and I would like to sincerely thank Bill Cochrane and the entire team at James A. Cochrane Inc. on our purchase of the Bryn Coed Farms property on Miller Road from the Natural Lands! We have been working with Bill for many years, waiting to find the perfect location for our four horses, two donkeys, two dogs and cat to call our special and forever home. Bill made himself readily available as well as personally individualizing the entire process. He guided us through the bidding, sale of agreement to settlement; including suggestions for lawyers, financial and mortgage firms. He threw in a good dose of humor along the way and made what could have been daunting at times, to down right fun! We are so very grateful for his time and thoughtful expertise through this wonderful passage and are truly blessed to now be a part of this magnificent equestrian communitiy in the making! They did such a great job! We highly recommend Bill and his team and are happy to work with them again in selling our current home.
Warm Regards ~ Philippa and Lou
It is with much gratitude that we say thank you, again, for your help in the purchase of Pine Swamp. Kevin and I feel so blessed to have been given the opportunity to restore the beauty that the property holds and to be able to build our dream home there. This journey from March till now has truly been a blessing in our lives.
With gratitude – Kevin & Jamie
We had tried other realtors but either they did not know the area or they did not understand our needs. Then we met with Bill Cochrane and discovered that he was aligned with our vision.
It was clear from our first drive that Bill knew the nuances and history of Chester County properties. He immediately built our trust by not trying to up-sell us into a bigger and more expensive home, (which the lenders would have gladly allowed -- and would have also awarded Bill a bigger commission). During our drives, He continued to process clues from our reactions to properties and he used those clues to fine-tune our search. Bill was extremely patient and good humored as he consulted with us through the very personal process of finding a home.
Well, with Bill’s help we found our home, within our budget, in a great community that we are thankful to be part of everyday!
We still have the pleasure of seeing Bill at different events around Chester County – and each time we tell him how much we appreciated having him as our realtor.
We worked with Bill Cochrane to sell our home in Warwick Township. Bill went above and beyond in his efforts to bring our home to close. Everyone in his office was pleasant to work with and the listing photos were exceptional. Besides experience, Bill has integrity, patience and just a very calming demeanor. We would highly recommend this office and would work with them again!
I worked with Susan Perkins at James A Cochrane to sell my North Coventry home in 2009, and since then to rent a home. Susan is professional, caring, responsive and well informed. She walked me through the entire process, gave me sound advice through each stage and made closing on the deal a breeze. Susan also helped me located a home to rent. She listened to my needs and wants and never tired of finding the “right place”. Susan and the team at James A Cochrane made my experience a positive one! I would recommend them to anyone selling or buying a home….you won’t regret it!
Our experience working with Susan Perkins and James A Cochrane realty was nothing short of exceptional. The attention to detail, professionalism and knowledge of the business from pre listing to closing was the best we've ever experienced. We highly recommend the services of this group.
