Sophie

Sophie Cohen

Owner/Broker

9505 Reisterstown Road
Suite #3S
Owings Mills, MD 21117

Sophie Cohen has worked in the real estate industry in one capacity or another since graduating college as a Sociology Major and Psychology Minor from UMBC. Her career started in the mortgage industry, then transitioning to the title business prior to taking a job in Human Resources at a prominent Baltimore based company. After working in a corporate environment for 5 years, Sophie missed the excitement of the real estate industry and decided to get her license. She began working at Keller Williams then transitioned to Long & Foster. It soon became clear…

She began working at Keller Williams then transitioned to Long & Foster. It soon became clear that this was her passion. She then wanted to take her career to the next level by getting her Brokers license and becoming an Associate Broker with Long & Foster.

After spending several years learning the ropes and working for larger brokerages, Sophie noticed that the industry was lacking the personal touch that a small brokerage could provide. Her clients wanted to feel a connection with their agent and not feel as though they were just another commission to be earned that month to meet quotas set by these larger national brokerages. In 2017, Valley Realty was formed.

As a mother to 3 young daughters, Sophie understands the importance of making a house a home. She strives to ensure that every client finds the perfect home for their lifestyle. Sophie is patient, genuine and committed to her clients’ success.

In her free time, Sophie enjoys vacationing with her family in Florida and Bethany Beach Delaware, taking her 2 dogs, Louie and Josie, on hikes and cooking with her daughters.
