CHARLESTON, S.C., Dec. 30, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Jeff Cook Real Estate, a leading provider of residential real estate sales in Charleston, SC, has given back to the community by donating to over fifty local schools, youth groups and non-profit organizations.
If you live in Charleston, chances are you've heard of Jeff Cook. His innovative marketing, including his catchy billboards and radio ads, have drawn the attention of many home sellers across the tri-county area and with the recent election, the country as a whole. However, most people are unaware of Jeff Cook's commitment to his community.
Since Cook's company became independent in early 2015, he has set aside a percentage of every real estate transaction for charitable purposes. In 2016, Cook used this fund to donate to seventeen youth organizations, twenty local schools, six churches and over twenty five nonprofit organizations including the Charleston Animal Society, Water Missions, the American Heart Association and Toys for Tots.
"Our mission at Jeff Cook Real Estate has always been to empower those around us to become a better version of themselves," stated Cook. "When the company was smaller, my vision was to empower our agents. As we have grown, not only do we want to empower those within the organization, but also to reach out to the surrounding community. Giving back is our way of thanking the community, for without them, our company would not be as successful as it is today."
The company's largest contribution this year went towards rebuilding five homes in North Charleston's Parkhill community which experienced heavy flooding during Hurricane Matthew. Not in a flood zone, many residents were without flood insurance and unable to complete the necessary repairs. Cook and his team helped homeowners by clearing out their houses and provided funding for the homes to be properly dried, as well as new drywall, paint and flooring.
According to Cook, the company's initiatives for 2017 include a focus on organizations that support the local youth and building a home for a family through Habitat for Humanity.
Jeff Cook Real Estate has been No. 1 in sales in Charleston since 2011. The team includes over 100 members. The independent Charleston real estate company helped 800 families buy or sell a home in 2017. To learn more about Jeff Cook Real Estate, call 843-225-2002 or visit www.JeffCookRealEstate.com.
