Polly Cockrill is always looking for ways to improve her client's experience, and provide clients with better results.
She is a Member of the National Association of Realtors Green REsource Council and a certified Short Sale and Foreclosure Resource.

Polly prefers to “hurry up and wait”. She gets it done right away. She is responsive, analytical, detail-oriented, and thorough.
