Best of Moffat County: Cornerstone Realty wins Best Real Estate Agency
June 28, 2013
When you walk into Cornerstone Realty in Craig, it's as if a bright light shines down upon you.
It could be the light blue and white paint that eases your nerves, or it could be the Bible scripture that is eloquently written on the walls.
Yet after talking to co-owners Stacey Mathers and Sari Cobb you realize it's something else. It's God's presence.
That's exactly the kind of feel that the pair envisioned when creating their workspace located at 508 Yampa Ave. in downtown Craig.
"I think that the success, in my opinion, is that we felt very led to open this business by God," Cobb said. "We pray over our business. We pray over our clients."
The Ten Commandments hang in the hallway of their offices, constantly reminding them of their role on this Earth.
"We try to be ethical and moral and fair," Cobb said. "We're a Christian business, and we try to hold true to those principles. We trust that He opened the business, and when He's ready, He'll close the business."
It doesn't look like the business will close anytime soon, though. The company won Best Real Estate Agency by voters who participated in 2013 Best of Moffat County.
"I think we take ourselves out of the equation, and we put our clients first," Mathers said. "It's a huge undertaking to sell a home, and you need someone to be your buffer, to be your soundboard, to listen."
She too has a strong faith in God, and trusts that he's led the real estate company in the right direction.
"It's by the grace of God, and without him, we wouldn't be around," Mathers said. "It's not that we don't work hard and pull our part. We do. If he closes the doors, he'll open another."
Perhaps the most exciting thing for Cobb and Mathers is that every day brings new challenges, triumphs and successes.
"Every day is different. You think you have your day planned and you don't," Mathers said. "You're constantly meeting new people and making new friends. There's a lot of joys to it. It's nice to see people's dreams come true."
Seeing people find a new home that they love brightens the spirits of all those who work at Cornerstone.
"My favorite part is knowing that you were able to help someone find the right home," Cobb said. "I love seeing my clients down the road and hear them say they love their house."
Cobb and Mathers have become excellent friends throughout the years. They pray together, work together and hang out together.
Their faith in God keeps them strong, they said. Cobb has a scripture written on her wall in her office that reads, "Then one of them, upon seeing that he was cured, turned back, recognizing and thanking and praising God with a loud voice."
