Better Living Lake Anna

Local real estate agent brings her passion to helping clients find their ideal homes

By Julie Matthews

Growing up in Spotsylvania County, Kristie Cooke has spent a lot of time visiting Lake Anna. She knows the lake and its communities very well, and she offers clients high quality, “whole package” customer service while assisting them with their real estate needs.

As a realtor and property manager with Lake Anna Realty, Cooke represents home and land sellers and buyers, as well as representing homeowners as their property manager. “I believe what makes me stand out as a property manager is I offer a local presence that national or bigger companies cannot offer,” Cooke says. “I physically manage your property with ‘boots on the ground’ versus from a desk.”

Cooke takes pleasure in sharing Lake Anna’s special small-town charms and all that it has to offer, including the slower pace of “lake time” and its positive lifestyle benefits. Lake Anna’s tranquil surroundings give a sense of balance and peacefulness to its residents’ lives. Besides its relaxing, low-key atmosphere, the area offers numerous outdoor activities, and is conveniently located near the historically and culturally rich cities Fredericksburg and Charlottesville.

Along with its beauty, Lake Anna’s tight knit community is definitely a reason why it is so popular with home buyers and renters. This is apparent in Cooke’s interactions with her clients. “I genuinely care about my clients from moment one, and their best interest is what I strive for and am willing to ‘fight’ for,” Cooke says. “I don’t just have a passion for real estate, I have a passion for people. The majority of my clients become repeat customers and more importantly, they become friends.”
