We had the good fortune of connecting with Jonathan Cook and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Jonathan, what role has risk played in your life or career?
With great risk comes great reward. I have lived by this my entire adult life. When we approach a decision on The Jonathan Cook Team we ask ourselves how can we take the maximum advantage over competitors through calculated risk. I have watched so many amazing no brainer home run decisions be turned to the tune of 10s if not 100s of thousands of dollars just because the person says I’m not a real risk taker.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
To get to the top I had to approach real estate from a different angle. I took my international business experience, tried and true work ethic and gorilla marketing skills from Universal Records days and applied them to real estate. W through witty billboards, to a YouTube series featuring a character I created called “Johnny Real Estate” a flamboyant 1970s used car salesmen type over the top realtor, and combined that with an amazing customer experience the rest has taken care of itself!

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Globe Life Park for a Texas Tangers Game, Fossil Rim Wildlife Park, Att Stadium for a cowboys game and American Airlines center for a live concert! Not to mention we have the finest golf courses in the world here in DFW

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I’m so thankful for Dennis Tuttle one of my best friends and no co workers at Keller Williams Arlington. Dennis lightly leaned on me for years with this opportunity for when the time was right. Through his friendship and persistence he took a risk on a young 29 year punk rocker turned realtor in 2013 and Praise God be all the glory that he did!
