About Irene

Irene Cochran
Real Esate Broker/Owner/Entrepreneur
Greater Lexington/Louisville Metropolitan Area
I am a licensed Principal Real Estate Broker in Kentucky, Florida, and Oregon.

My historic transaction closure rate is over 95%

Currently I specialize in newly constructed multi-unit townhomes and condo/apartment
complexes. Single family residential sales as well as new to be constructed residential
sales.

My experience spans back to the 1990’s. Beginning with downtown South Beach
residential acquisitions and renovations. I was just in time as South Miami was heating
up.

While renovating and living in sunny south Florida I obtained my private pilot’s license.
Which serendipitously led to my move to the Panhandle of Florida.

This panned out in a very big way for during my time in Northwest Florida through
selling my own acreage. I assembled and brokered neighboring properties that resulted
in two of the largest and highly successful developments in that area.

Then deja vu , all over again.

While on one of my flying adventures I discovered Mustang Island Corpus Christi, Texas.
After settling in this area I bought, assembled and brokered once again. One of which
transactions resulted into the sale of the property which became Cinnamon Shores the
most successful development today on the Texas coast.

I also successfully owned, renovated and ultimately sold three Savannah Historic
buildings. Two of which ended up on the Old Town Trolley Tours of Savannah route.

While all this was going on I was exchanging downtown Boston condos, of which I had
accumulated over the years. By doing so it allowed me to tap the huge appreciation
gains that had become of them.

These exchanges were traded for numerous multi-unit properties that had greater
cash flow while still enjoying valuation appreciation.

Which then led me to my new home and to open Meridien Real Estate.

I believe the Lexington and Louisville metropolitan areas are early and solid for long
term investment in which I currently and actively invest in for myself.

When I am not running around doing 5 tasks at once for my real estate.
I can be found at home cooking provincial Italian recipes as well as gourmet dog food.
Yes I meant to write that. I make gourmet food for my beloved pets Mia, Gia and
Finbar. Who are all chocolate brown colored Boston Terriers!
