Committed To Exceeding Expectations & Turning Dreams Into Reality
The Cole Team is comprised of Brenda and Scoop Cole, and team members Claudia Hoh, Vanessa Phillips, and Douglas Salmon. They specialize in residential and commercial real estate, short sales, foreclosures, vacant land, and new construction. Both Brenda and Scoop are certified specialists in short sales as well as foreclosures.
Scoop Cole was licensed as a Florida real estate agent in 1978, and was taught the art of real estate from his father Harmon, who opened Cole Realty Group in 1970 in Cape Coral. Scoop’s father was President of the Cape Coral Association of Realtors, & Realtor of the Year in 1975; the 1st father and son team to accomplish both! Brenda sold real estate in Columbus, OH and surrounding areas until 1984 when she moved to Cape Coral.
In 1989, Brenda and Scoop joined forces and franchised with Prudential Real Estate. They bought the building at 1515 Cape Coral Parkway, and operated their business there for the next 16 years. They were the first Prudential real estate affiliate in Southwest Florida, from 1989 through 2011.
When Prudential announced their decision to sell Prudential Real Estate and Relocation Services to Brookfield Residential Services in 2011, The Coles decided to move on and look for a firm matching their level of professionalism and goals.
Even though they still own the “Prudential” building at 1515 Cape Coral Parkway, they now have a new, more prominent location at RE/MAX Realty Group.
The Coles have earned awards annually since the inception of “Brenda Cole & Company”. These include coveted industry awards such as the “Top 100 Nationwide”, “Legend”, and the “Chairman Circle” with Prudential Real Estate affiliates. In 1989, Brenda was awarded “Realtor of the Year” and Scoop, proudly following in his father’s footsteps, was President of the Cape Coral Realtor Association. Scoop was also awarded “Realtor of the Year” in 1992 & 1993.
After 16 years of occupying the office at 1515 Cape Coral Pkwy, “Brenda Cole & Company” is excited about their new location at 1337 Cape Coral Pkwy E. Cape Coral FL, 33904.
Scoop is originally from Ann Arbor, Michigan and Brenda hails from Columbus, Ohio. Although their college teams were arch rivals, they now both proudly identify themselves as “Seminole” fans, as their youngest daughter is a student at Florida State University.
Scoop and Brenda have 3 children, Tara, Greg, and Brooke. Tara owns Delta Family Counseling, where she works with children ages 2- 18 utilizing therapy dogs. Greg is in law school at Ave Maria. Brooke is studying communications and theater at Florida State University, and in her spare time, riding her horse, Pistol. When they are not busy selling real estate, Scoop pursues his hobbies of car racing and golfing, while Brenda enjoys walking the beach, yoga, and boating.
