The revived Cook Realty LLC is set to move into the Iron Springs Building some time after April 1. “We’re having the building painted and renovations should be done by (then),” said managing broker Jodi Leonard. “We will be having an Open House at the office when we open the doors, the first week or so in April.”
Cook Realty was opened by Andrew Cook in 2006, but after three years in business he decided to merge with Pinnacle Realty in Malta. Cook met Leonard and Linda Mielcarski while at Pinnacle and the three formed an internal sales team, Cook and Associates, in January 2011. “We really enjoyed working together and formed a close professional partnership and decided to open our own brokerage,” Leonard said. “I am the managing broker and Andrew is my partner in the company. Linda Mielcarski is our Director of Sales and Relocation.”
Cook Realty’s latest incarnation is off to a fast start. “In just three weeks we have the business up and running and have our first pending transaction,” Leonard said. “(We) should have more to follow in the upcoming months.”
Leonard started with Pinnacle in 2007 and got her Associate Broker’s license in 2010. Cook was Director of Sales at Pinnacle and Mielcarski was a training manager.
“We enjoyed our time with Pinnacle,” Leonard said, “but felt it was time to make a change and we are all very excited.”
The latest incarnation of Cook Realty offers services including staging, relocation, broker opens and open houses, buyer representation, rentals, listings, commercial properties and vacant land transactions, among others.
The Iron Springs Building is located at 16 Milton Ave. in Ballston Spa. For information call Cook Realty LLC at 518-885-9200 or visit their website at www.cookrealtyllc.com or on Facebook at www.facebook.com/cookrealty.
