I began my career in real estate over 20 years ago because of a passion for renovating my personal homes. I got my general contractors license and needed a real estate license as well so I could buy and sell our spec homes. After the market crash in 2008, I focused solely on my brokerage business and decided to use my eye for construction to help guide my real estate clients. About 6 years ago I partnered with a friend to create the Cook/Pizzo team. We are consistent top producers, best friends and obsessed with our job! My husband is an Orthopedic Surgeon who specializes in knees and shoulders. He is also the lead team physician for our local basketball team, the Charlotte Hornets. Fun fact, the Hornets are owned by Michael Jordan and we have met a lot of celebrities and gone to a lot of really fun parties associated with the NBA and the All- Star Games.
