Chinowth & Cohen Realtors and its affiliated companies continued to see enormous growth in 2021, expanding resources and business across Oklahoma, continuing to be the largest independent real estate company in the state.
Along with gaining an additional 170 agents in the past year, Chinowth & Cohen Realtors has also announced 2022 plans for offices in Glenpool and Wagoner, stretching the powerhouse real estate company's reach to a total of 16 real estate offices, along with the property management division, American Property Management.
The company is also seeing continued success in Oklahoma City after purchasing Churchill Brown & Associates in 2020. The Nichols Hills and Edmond offices already have around 120 agents between both locations. Mary Fitzpatrick is the Managing Broker of the Nichols Hills office, and Khari McVey and Bill Beauprey assist in training new and existing agents in the Edmond office.
Chinowth & Cohen also built a brand new office in Owasso. The new location, just off U.S. 169 on 116th St. N, replaces the company's former Owasso office at Smith Farm Marketplace off of 96th St. N. The Owasso branch, one of C&C's first offices, launched in 2004 with only a handful of agents. Now, with around 115 agents in the Owasso area, Chinowth & Cohen knew it was time to build a new office, which also includes a state-of-the-art training facility. The office held its grand opening in October.
C&C also added new members to its corporate leadership team, including Lindsay Padilla as Director of Corporate Development, Travis Guillory as Director of Marketing & Public Relations, and Julie Orlando as Director of Accounting. Jamie Smith has been hired on to run American Property Management, Arlys Spiker is the new Managing Broker of the Bixby office, and Adonna Anderson has been promoted to Director of Education to spearhead the company's real estate training efforts.

Speaking of Chinowth & Cohen's education department, in addition to continuing its commitment to providing aspiring and current agents with top notch real estate training services, C&C created and implemented a new Post 45 course for provisional associates, upgraded the main training facility with new technology to provide in-person, live webinar, and hybrid classes, and created 10 new OREC-approved classes. C&C also added a full-time trainer in Oklahoma City, expanding the team to a total of five educators statewide and around 20 OREC approved instructors.
One of the most exciting developments for Chinowth & Cohen Realtors in 2021 is the partnership with Partners United Financial, a multi-state joint venture mortgage company formed in tandem with Newrez.
Partners United Financial is a fully-funded, independent mortgage banking firm that offers an array of unmatched advantages and perks to mortgage professionals, including direct access to agencies, innovative Non-QM offerings, marketing and sales support, industry-leading benefits and more.
Nikki Pauly has joined the firm as Senior Loan Officer, and the joint venture is seeking to hire a total of at 15 talented mortgage professionals to join the team between Tulsa and Oklahoma City.
Another fantastic service Chinowth & Cohen provides in-house to its agents and clients is Elite Title Services, which saw two grand openings in 2021. The Oklahoma City office, along May Ave, held its grand opening in June. The South Tulsa location moved from 101st and Yale to 61st and Yale in KingsPointe Village. That office held its grand opening in October and continues to provide unparalleled title services. ETS also has locations in Midtown Tulsa and Owasso.
These developments have secured Chinowth & Cohen's placement across the state as a dominant real estate entity. And because of smart business decisions made by Sheryl Chinowth, Lee Cohen, Leland Chinowth, and Taylor Chinowth, clients can come to our family of companies and receive top real estate, title, and mortgage services all under one umbrella, making the home buying and selling experience one like no other.
