There are so many real estate agents out there, so what makes a Hancock Group agent stand apart from the crowd? We believe a team is only as good as the sum of it’s parts. That said, we are a small powerhouse team of agents who are highly motivated and focused on producing results. Our philosophy is not to have a lot of team members, but rather a small group of hard working agents who do a LOT of business. HG only consists of the very best of the best.

All HG agents are full time, experienced, and trained to the highest level. In addition, when you hire an HG agent, you are hiring an entire team of people who are all working on your behalf. The days of relying on just one person are over, because we understand that buying or selling a home requires a lot of cooperation and specialization to be as successful as it can possibly be.
