Aledo, IL, January 17, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Starr Zook, one of the leading real estate brokers in Mercer County, Ill., for more than a decade, recently acquired RE/MAX On Track in Aledo, Ill., the office with which she has been affiliated since 2001.
Located at 221 E. Main St., the office has been extensively renovated since Zook took command in early December, with new equipment and a remodeled interior that Zook describes as “upscale yet relaxing.”
“I’ve long considered the idea of owning my own real estate firm, and when this opportunity presented itself, everything seemed to fall into place,” said Zook, a Mercer County resident all her life. “I love working in this community and my goal is to bring an even higher level of professionalism to our office.”
Zook has consistently ranked among the top sales producers in the RE/MAX Northern Illinois network. In 2009 and 2010, she was honored as the year’s top RE/MAX Northern Illinois broker for closed transactions outside the Chicago metro area.
She also works closely with her husband, Donald, who operates Zook Investments, Inc., a firm that specializes in rehabilitating older commercial and residential properties in and around Aledo. They include the historic 25,000-square-foot building in which RE/MAX On Track is located along with four other businesses and six apartments.
Zook plans to add brokers to the RE/MAX On Track team over the next few months, each of whom will share her commitment to delivering real estate services of the highest caliber, each one handled in a way that makes all parties to the transaction well informed and comfortable.
“The basis of my work in real estate has always been to treat others as I would want to be treated,” said Zook. “That is also part of the RE/MAX philosophy, and our office is committed to embodying that approach in everything we do.”
