About Mindy Cotherman:
Mindy caught the real estate bug in 2002 when she bought my first multi-family house, in Holyoke, MA. Soon after, she obtained my real estate license and began helping friends and clients buy and sell homes. That quickly branched out into property management, continuing on the landlord track with a 2nd multi-family, and spending numerous hours advising clients on just what makes a well-built home. These days she keep busy consulting with sellers on the fixes needed to get their homes ready to put up for sale and then listing their property. Mindy also helps buyers sift through hundreds of homes so they can find the one that is perfect for them. Whether it’s helping her clients locate a single family home to downsize into, or to spend a lifetime in while they raise their family, or encouraging a budding entrepreneur in finding a solid multi-family and then discussing their livelihood as a landlord, steam energized by the entire industry and loves being involved in the real estate process from start to finish In between showing homes and keeping her clients moving forward, Mindy spends time with her Chesapeake Bay Retriever, Dante, at the Northampton dog park. If you haven’t been there, the dog park is one of the most picturesque places in the Pioneer Valley. In fact, she spends a lot of time with Dante; he’s usually riding shotgun in her Tacoma to the next real estate showing, nose hanging out the window to smell the crisp New England air. The most rewarding part of being a Realtor is that Mindy gets to spend time meeting new people, empowering them and then stepping into their shoes, seeing houses in a way that is important to them. Whether clients are searching for an urban environment or a more rural place to settle into, The Pioneer Valley offers a high quality of life and it’s a place that Mindy has proudly called my home since 2000.
