"I relocated from IL to TN. Craig made a not so easy situation much easier! His awesome attitude and expertise made all the difference. I have worked with many agents in the past, and Craig is top notch. Highly recommend if you are looking to buy or sell!"
"My wife and I recently purchased a 2nd home in Nashville. Riley helped us find a home in a city we had only been to once and recommended we purchase a home in the Germantown district of Nashville, based on our needs and price point. Riley and his team directed us through the buying process remotely and we closed on our new home 3 weeks after our offer was accepted. We love the Germantown area of Nashville and love our townhome. I would strongly recommend using Riley and his team for all of your real estate needs in Nashville, personal service with no pressure."
"Craig and Riley are professionals that go above and beyond! They understand the market, kept us patient, were flexible to meet during odd hours, and ultimately helped us close one purchase and two sales in less than 60 days! Could not recommend them enough!"
"It was a pleasure working with the Cowan King Group. At a time when the housing market in the Nashville area was very competitive, Craig and Riley always had other options/other suggestions. They wanted to make sure that the barriers that often pop up with house hunting were managed and less troublesome. They were always responsive and always willing to go look at homes last minute. If you are looking to buy/sell in the Nashville area, I highly recommend reaching out to them!"
"We are so fortunate to have found The Cowan King Group. Craig and Riley are incredibly knowledgeable and have a knack for relationship building. They are a team that listens to your needs/wants and looks out for your best interest. Whether it’s luxury living, a starter home, property with acreage, an investment property - whatever your real estate needs are in Middle Tennessee- If you are looking for a real estate team, we can’t speak highly enough of Craig Cowan and Riley King with The Cowan King Group."
I was a first time home buyer with many questions and the whole process was daunting to me. Luckily I had Craig as my Realtor. Firstly, he was able to put together great homes that met my laundry list of wants vs needs to check the boxes which met my criteria. Secondly, he made the process so simple. He worked around my schedule and his communication was second to none, answering every call despite how simple the question might be. The one time he didn’t answer the call was returned in 5 minutes. He walked me step by step through the whole process and was thorough throughout the negotiations, ensuring we were on the same page and I was comfortable to move forward during the process. Being a first time buyer I thought once the dotted line was signed I would be on my own. However, Craig has always been available since my closing and has even checked to see how things are going. I really appreciate the fact that he is still a phone call away. A home purchase is such a life changing experience and to have a realtor with a genuine interest, especially being my first purchase, is very much welcomed. Many thanks!
"Craig was in constant communication and answered instantly or promptly. Listened to my wants/needs and found resolutions that were more than suitable. Really feel he went above and beyond to see me through start to finish."
"Being from out of state, we were unfamiliar with the Nashville housing market. Riley and his team researched neighborhoods to find a home to meet our needs and price point. Within a short period of time, Riley helped us negotiate, purchase and close on our beautiful Germantown property. Riley and his team kept us updated every step of the way & were always available for questions. I would highly recommend The Cowan King Team for your real estate needs."
All I have to say is, what a team! As a first-time home buyer, I was overwhelmed with all the steps needed to be completed in buying a home. Craig and Riley were with me every step of the way. They were kind, patient, transparent, and most importantly trustworthy. Even when I asked my one million one questions, they answered each of them in a timely manner with the detail I needed, and if they didn’t know the answer right away, they were prompt with their responses and shared information as it was provided. I am so thankful for these two gentlemen and the confidence they gave me when purchasing this first home. Still to this day, they continue to check in to see how the house is coming along. I promise you will be in great hands with these two on your team. Thank you again, Riley and Craig!
