— James A. Cook has joined the Ski Town Commercial Real Estate firm, according to a news release.

“With fifty years as a licensed real estate broker, Jim adds an extraordinary amount of depth to the team,” said Jon W. Sanders, managing broker at Ski Town Commercial.

Cook was responsible for bringing the Prudential real estate brand to Steamboat Springs, and with his son, he went on to found Colorado Group Realty.

A founding board member of Main Street Steamboat, Cook has also been active in the arts community as a former board member of the Steamboat Arts Council and Perry-Mansfield Performing Arts School and Camp.

He has been a very active, pioneering force in the redevelopment of downtown Steamboat Springs. A self-professed “foodie”, Cook negotiated the leases for the very popular E3 Chop House and Aurum restaurants.

In his role with Ski Town Commercial, Cook will be a prominent member of the leasing team for 910 Yampa, a new project downtown. Formerly the headquarters of Yampa Valley Electric Association, the historic rehabilitation of this repurposed property is destined to add to the vibrancy of Yampa Street.

Established in 2009, Ski Town Commercial specializes in large asset acquisition and disposition, as well as warehouse, office, retail and multi-family acquisitions, commercial leasing, development analysis and business brokerage.

The firm’s partners, Sanders and Brandon Dardanis, have extensive experience in commercial real estate and Development. Since 2014, the team has brokered more than $45 million in commercial real estate transactions in Colorado.
