After 15 years, Danielle Windus-Cook Properties has a new name: RE/MAX Titanium.
The new premium real estate franchise debuts on Oct. 25, 2017. It's co-owned by brokers Danielle Windus-Cook and Kyle Rath and will be located at 1 Park Ave., Brockport.
These lifelong residents of Brockport and Hamlin have over 50 years of combined experience in real estate with over 32 million dollars in sales in 2016.
They've known each other since high school and have long admired each other's professionalism, commitment to their clients and passion for the business.
“Danielle was a loan officer for a local bank in the 90’s. Every week, she would come into the office when I worked with Schepler Realty to make mortgages happen for her customers, always with a positive attitude,” Rath said. “The market was a bit bumpy back then, but she never gave up. 2008 was the biggest bump in our real estate careers, and Danielle came through that strong and in one piece. That is the kind of person I want to work with.”
Says Danielle of Kyle: “There is no one I have ever met in real estate who has a bigger heart in his own community. He is a big producer with a big presence in the Hamlin, Hilton and Kendall areas. We’ve always worked well together on real estate transactions, and I am proud to call Kyle my business partner.”
Danielle's son JW recently graduated from St. Bonaventure University, marking a new chapter for Danielle.
“Now that I’ve raised my son, JW, it is time to focus on building our business,” she said.
Together, Danielle and Kyle are actively recruiting experienced agents to add to their team of 12 licensed real estate agents.
As of October 25, RE/MAX Titanium will appear on signs, advertising and all marketing materials throughout the franchise’s territory. Danielle Windus-Cook Properties will continue to operate solely for campground transactions.
Website visitors will be redirected to www.titaniumhomesales.com where listing, buyer, seller and open house information, agent biographies and contact information can be found.
Social media followers will find new usernames on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram under the RE/MAX Titanium page name or @RemaxTitaniumNY handle.
The official RE/MAX Titanium launch will take place on Wednesday, October 25 at 5:00 p.m. with a ribbon cutting ceremony. Following the ceremony, the new RE/MAX Titanium agents will be available for a meet and greet. The community is invited to attend.
RE/MAX was founded in 1973 by Dave and Gail Liniger, with an innovative, entrepreneurial culture affording its agents and franchisees the flexibility to operate their businesses with great independence. Over 115,000 agents provide RE/MAX a global reach of more than 100 countries and territories.
