When I heard that the 2017 numbers had come in for the Greater Tyler Association of Realtors (GTAR), it was no surprise that Shelia Cooper had landed herself at the top for individual sales. Shelia was also voted as the 2017 Best of BSCENE, Best Realtor by the readers' of BSCENE Magazine. Shelia Cooper is a top RE/MAX agent in East Texas and the owner of RE/MAX Impact on Old Jacksonville in Tyler. Prior to her real estate career, Shelia was a paralegal for 12 years which gives her a strong understanding of contracts and negotiation techniques. Shelia then discovered that she wasn’t enjoying her career due to the lack of room for improvement, and with an interest in real estate and starting a business, she decided to switch careers and has now been selling real estate for almost 12 years.

According to BrokerMetrics year end reporting, Shelia is the number one selling agent in Tyler based upon total sales volume.  In 2017 alone, she has sold a total volume of approximately $30 million, covering areas such as Tyler, Flint, Bullard, Jacksonville, Arp, Troup, Whitehouse, Chapel Hill, Lindale, Chandler, Browsboro and Van. She is very proactive, a great communicator and a very good negotiator. With Shelia by your side, you feel as though you are her only client, and benefit from her extensive experience and knowledge of the real estate market.

Not only can Shelia assist anyone buying or selling any home or land in East Texas, she has an in-depth understanding of new construction and the home building process, as she is married to one of the top builders in Tyler.  This knowledge can greatly assist her clients wanting to purchase, sell or build a new home.  Chris Cooper, with C. Cooper Custom Homes, Inc., has been in the construction business since high school and has been building homes in East Texas since 2004. He is a member of the Tyler Area Builders Association and has completed approx. 500 homes, covering most of East Texas.

Chris’ homes vary in size and price, depending upon his customer’s needs, but one thing each customer will go home to is a high quality home with beautiful amenities. He is very knowledgeable about the building process, which makes working with him a great experience and cost effective. With C. Cooper Custom Homes, the customer can feel confident knowing that Chris is able to make smart financial decisions throughout the entire building process, resulting in an affordable sales price for your custom luxury home. 

Currently, Shelia and Chris are developing a new neighborhood in South Tyler, which is a gated community.  Crown Point Estates has a serene country setting just minutes from everything that South Tyler has to offer! Live like royalty in prestigious Crown Point Estates as this planned development consists of only 16 lots. The lots are large with the smallest being a half acre. They currently have 2 homes near completion with 4 bedrooms priced at $365,000 and $399,900.  There are a few lots still available for sale and builders
are welcome. 

They also have homes available in Elk River, located near Jack Elementary, and Chapel Woods East, located close to UT Tyler.  These new homes range in price from the $250s to $350s. Lots are available if you would prefer to customize your dream home!

In their free time, Shelia and Chris love to travel and spend time with their family. They have five children, ranging from the age of 5 to 17. They also enjoy hosting parties and events at their new home. There are a lot of great real estate agents and builders in East Texas, but if you are looking for a dynamic duo to buy, sell, or build your next home, the Coopers are definitely a team you should consider. To be honest, when I called Shelia to congratulate her on a successful year and to ask her a few questions for the article, I argued with her about only being an agent 12 years.  When I met her my son was a baby and he just turned 12 this month. She was so passionate and knowledgeable  about real estate and really good at it that I assumed she had been an agent for years. Who would have known she had just passed her exam! Today, 12 years later, Shelia Cooper is still just as passionate about real estate and her clients ... she just has a lot more experience, several awards, and now holds the title as the 2017 top individual sales agent in the Greater Tyler Area which includes 1,081 active members at GTAR.
