United Country’s Corky Heard Shares Unique Connection with Homeowner

August 22, 2016 (KANSAS CITY, Mo.) – It’s one quaint home with five generations worth of stories and now it’s up for auction. Bob and Pat Cochran have lived in their home on Grant Street in Sentinel, Okla., since the early 1970’s. Pat Cochran’s family has had the home since it was originally built more than 100 years ago.

“A lot of memories have taken place there,” said Pat Cochran. “It was my childhood home. My parents lived there as well as my grandfather and great-grandmother. Our children grew up there. At one point, we thought about building our own home, but I told Bob that I just couldn’t leave because of all the memories I have there.”

Bob, now in his 80’s, can no longer maintain the family home. A longtime auctioneer himself, he turned to Corky Heard of United Country – Heard Auction & Real Estate for help selling his home. It will go up for auction September 8. Heard spent time with Bob and Pat recently and, by a twist of fate, found out they have more than just auctions in common.

“We were walking around his property and I found some old United Farm Agency signs in his garage,” said Heard. “I was excited to tell him I work for that very same company now. We also found out we went to the same auction school and to the Certified Auctioneers Institute, just decades apart. It was a really cool connection.”

United Farm Agency was the previous name of United Country Real Estate more than 40 years ago. Bob Cochran worked for United in the 1970’s as a real estate agent and auctioneer.

“At some point, Bob read about United and that they advertised nationally,” said Pat. “At the time we had an insurance agency and real estate company and wanted to be able to serve everyone in the area. As he learned more about this new idea and other interesting aspects, he became interested in becoming part of this company.”

The home, sitting on a quarter acre of land at 709 E. Grant Street, offers large bedrooms and two bathrooms. It was remodeled in the 1980’s and contains beautiful stained glass windows that were previously on display at the Methodist church in Sentinel. Also included are a deck, patio with a cellar, and a workshop that Bob Cochran personally built. The additions made it a local attraction for those who passed by.

“People are just really impressed by it,” said Pat. “The sun shines through those windows and it’s really beautiful.”

The personal property will be selling in an online only from August 27 – Sept. 6 and the home selling live and online on Sept. 8. It will be conducted by Corky Heard.
