Our Philosophy

The goal of Team Hancock is to focus on you, what you want and need to make your best choices. Working as a team, we share our knowledge and experience, educating and guiding you throughout the process. We do not accept dual agency arrangements, preferring to be an uncompromised advocate for your best interests. We love what we do and it shows. It may be old-fashioned but it’s still rings true: we care.

At Team Hancock we believe the excellence you expect is our personal awareness, mutual respect and the integrity of offering open and honest guidance. It’s the knowledge and experience to provide the best professional skills. It’s not settling for just ‘good’. It’s always asking, what else can we do, to make a better, smoother experience for you. Team Hancock works closely with their clients. We strive to be innovative and on the leading-edge of service – but, approachable.
