A Passion for Housing
Our team is committed to our Cook mobile home park residents, our partners, and the communities we serve.
We work hard to provide the best service to each and every Cook mobile home park resident — the heart of our business. Our actions are inspired by what we call the Cook “SPARK,” an acronym representing our five core values that guide our attitude and actions every day at Cook Properties.
At Cook, we respect, support, and trust each other because we go further when we work together as a team. This means we’re all in it for the collective success of our communities and the people they serve.
Progress Over Perfection
We learn from mistakes and are patient with ourselves — all while keeping the train moving. This means our residents get the best versions of ourselves, day in and day out.
Adapt & Innovate
While we COULD stay in our comfort zones, we wouldn’t grow. Cook focuses on pushing outside our comfort zone, seeking solutions and then diving in to achieve them. There’s no problem we can’t solve for our residents.
At Cook, we believe that every interaction is an opportunity to lift each other up. Positivity is contagious, whether it’s a conversation between coworkers or welcoming residents to their new community.
Keep it Fun
We’re all about celebrating wins, building relationships, and finding joy in the journey.
At Cook Properties, we thrive on positive vibes. We like to call ourselves a “25-year-old start-up,” because although we’ve been in the real estate business for many years, our rapid growth has been an opportunity to evaluate, adapt, innovate, and evolve literally every day! We’re “work hard, play hard” people. Our best days are when we come together and celebrate achievements — big and small. We take pride in being there for Cook mobile home park residents — serving as a stepping stone to help others achieve their dream of home ownership.
