Proven History

Working with DeAnne was a pleasure. She was always accessible, efficient, and very knowledgeable about the area. She made our move from Wisconsin to Tennessee very enjoyable. DeAnne not only helped us find the right home and school, but also put us in touch with the finest professionals we needed to help us with the transition. She is more than just a realtor! - Thank you for everything, Corky and Tammy Dawes

I have had the pleasure of working with DeAnne and her clients for more than 8 years. In my industry, I deal with a lot of real estate agents everyday on a constant basis. I am always impressed by the knowledge she imparts to her clients before they enter into the home buying process. Consequently, she makes my job easier because she communicates so well to her clients all the proper steps necessary in the home buying process including the financing. DeAnne has the unique ability to connect with the first time homebuyer to the seasoned homebuyer because of her experience, knowledge and personality. However, more notable in my eyes is the way DeAnne has always looked out for the best interest of all her clients and treats each with the highest of integrity. - Clay Boone

DeAnne Cotthoff provided excellent service in the sale of my Franklin residence in 2004. I found her to be very personable, professional and responsive on every issue throughout the process. Her marketing/advertising methods resulted in a quick contract on the property, at a very competitive price, and her knowledge and negotiating skills withstood the numerous challenges encountered in closing the transaction as planned. It is difficult to imagine a better choice for real estate in the Nashville area! - Jim Hillis, Brazoria, TX

We would highly recommend DeAnne Cotthoff to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. Since this was our first home purchase, we needed someone to trust and who would have the patience and knowledge to guide us through this process. DeAnne was that person and we are forever grateful to her. She was the utmost professional and was always there when we needed her. And now 6 monthly later, we couldn’t be happier in our new home! - Thanks again, DeAnne! Mark & Leslee Engle

We’ve worked with DeAnne on buying our last two homes. She found us exactly what we needed and wanted. Her expertise and professionalism made the hunt enjoyable! - Jack & Terry Randow

When we came to DeAnne, we had to find a home, purchase and move-in, all within a month’s period of time. DeAnne understood our needs and because of her, we found the perfect home in the perfect neighborhood and we moved in within the month! Thanks for making the process go so smoothly, you’re the BEST! - Jim & Melissa Brady

This was our first home and we were very nervous. DeAnne had great patience with all of our phone calls and emails regarding every detail of the process. She has such a sweet and outgoing personality that made her such a joy to work with. I recommend her to everyone I know looking to buy or sell their home. - Kason & Tanya Hatfield

Describe the “perfect” broker and you will be describing DeAnne Cotthoff. In our search for a new home, she first listened to our needs, and then pursued all possibilities. Along the way, her suggestions helped our decision making process. She was always available when we needed her and she made sure all the little details that go along with buying a house were taken care of. The end result was a beautiful home that was exactly what we wanted at a price that was very attractive. Kudos to DeAnne! Bob and Cindy Crichton

We’ve worked with many real estate agents in buying and selling homes over the years (Knoxville, New Orleans, Kansas City, and most recently Franklin). DeAnne and her team are the best! She developed a winning marketing strategy and materials in selling our home in Franklin, insulated us from all the paperwork and logistics, had the network of contacts to do some minor repairs, and kept in constant communication with us throughout the process. We wish we had her help finding a new home in Chattanooga! - Rob and Charlene Williford

When it came time for us to sell our home in Franklin, we checked our neighborhood “for sale” signs for several weeks. One name kept popping up again and again – DeAnne Cotthoff. DeAnne came to our home prepared with a complete marketing plan for selling our home. Her efforts resulted in a quick sale (a contract in 24 hours!!) and a great price. We also used DeAnne to help us find our new home in Brentwood. She was patient and insightful, and guided us to just the right place. - Robert and Cindy Sterling
