Who We Are
The Hancock Team is a team of REALTORS® currently comprised of Sandy Hancock and her son Trey Hancock. While Trey is new to real estate, both team members bring unique skill sets and experiences to the process of buying/selling/renting/investing.
--Sandy has been in the industry since 2005. During her time in real estate, she has gained countless skills and experiences that enable her to adeptly guide investors, sellers, buyers, and renters through their respective processes. Her career highlights include teacher and counselor at Churchill High School, and administrative roles (principal and vice principal) at Smithson Valley High School, Spring Branch Middle School, and Comal Leadership Institute/Comal Discipline Center. Her time in the school system lead to an unparalleled knowledge-base of San Antonio and surrounding areas.
--Trey joined his mother in 2017 after getting his M.S. in Psychology from the University of Texas at San Antonio. What he lacks in industry-specific experience, he makes up for with advanced technological skills in social media, marketing, web and graphics design, and mobile technology. In addition to those skills, he also brings experience in quantitative data analyses and behavioral analysis to the table.
How We Work
While experience, knowledge, and passion for the industry drives The Hancock Team, it is our broker, JB Goodwin, who supercharges the team in the following outlets:
--Marketing resources: From providing signs and local advertisement, to publishing our listings on over 103 websites, JB Goodwin remains at the forefront of real estate marketing. JB is always looking for new platforms to advertise on, and maintains a significant social media presence both for the company and individual listings. List your properties with a JB Goodwin agent (preferably The Hancock Team!) and you will receive maximum exposure both on- and offline.
--Education and training: Unlike many brokers, JB Goodwin actively provides constant opportunities for education, frequently at little to no cost to the agents. What this means for the client is they can be assured that working with JB Goodwin allows him or her the help of knowledgeable and up-to-date agents and office staff. This helps in many facets: from marketing to knowing about different areas around Bexar county. This level of training and scrutiny on our management's part also helps to minimize and transaction snafus that may otherwise arise.
--Community support: While JB Goodwin operates primarily in the Austin and San Antonio markets, they have a truly global reach through their membership in the by-invitation-only group of elite brokers known as "Leading Real Estate Companies of the World". This allows the client to not only sell a home locally, but also be referred to REALTORS® of a similar caliber to help them find their next home, anywhere in the WORLD! Additionally, the environment at JB Goodwin is one of familial support, not cut-throat competition. Due to the close connections between agents, it means that a client will never be left in the dark because their agent happens to be unreachable for any given reason.

This was my first experience in the sale of property and Sandy was very attentive, efficient, and helpful in every part of it.
Sandy was by far the best and most informed agent we have worked with.
Sandy is the best, hardest working agent I have ever worked with. She anticipated, facilitated, organized and nurtured this process very positively.

My husband and I had the distinct pleasure of working with Sandy for what could have been a pretty complicated transaction. We had a very unique situation in that we needed to rent our current home and sell my mother-in-law's home in order to be able to purchase a home for our combined family. Sandy managed to list both the rental and the sale and had contracts on both within a week!
Sandy navigated the rental, sale, and purchase of all three properties with professionalism and ease. Sandy is an exceptional agent! She is very knowledgeable, friendly and truly cared about our family and our needs. No matter what time of day or night it was, if I had a question, Sandy would respond. No other realtor could have made all three things happen for our family! I would HIGHLY recommend Sandy Hancock to help sell or buy a home any day of the week
Sandy listed some property for us. She is very knowledgeable and guided us through the paper work. She kept us updated as to what was happening. After a few months the property sold. Sandy is a hard working, reliable, caring & honest realtor. I do not hesitate to recommend her to friends.
Her genuine interest in my concerns, her positive, responsive, and sincere attitude are things I liked in working with Sandy. She looks out for you like a dear friend. I thought critically about areas of improvement and none come to mind. I would use her services again and refer her to family and friends. She gets all 10s

Sandy wants what is best for us. We give her 10's in all areas and would absolutely use her again and refer her to family and friends. This is our 4th transaction with Sandy in 4 years.
We liked everything about working with Sandy. She was fantastic. We give her 10's in all areas and could absolutely work with her again and refer her to family and friends.
Sandy Hancock has been my realtor for many years. She has represented me as the seller and the buyer. Her work ethic and attention to details are far superior than any I have ever seen. She treated us like we were her family and looked out for our best interests. She walked us through the processes and made sure we understood every part. She is always easy to get in touch with and very flexible with our schedules. I love working with Sandy and I recommend her to anyone needing a realtor. She is the best!
