Jeff Cook is a real estate broker in Charleston, South Carolina, and is part owner of the second-largest realty company in the Charleston Metro area, The AgentOwned Realty Co. Jeff was laid off in 2002 in the corporate America environment for being among the best sales associates, when the company eliminated commission-based sales agents and paid them their average hourly wage. Jeff rebounded in 2003, graduating both with a bachelor’s in business from the University of South Carolina and also from Real Estate University, both within a week of each other. Jeff went on to open his own small business, where he could be rewarded for his honest, hard work and provide a safe goal-oriented work force within his organization. In 2011, Jeff was the No. 1 residential resale agent in the Charleston, South Carolina, market (non-REO and non-new construction) and is frequently sought out by local media publications, talk shows and local radio stations for his real estate update. Jeff is married to the lovely Sarah Cook, and they have a husky-shepherd mix named Johnny.
