Cook & James Appoints Mary Jackson Market Developer

Atlanta-Area Real Estate Attorney Firm Continues Growth

Mary Jackson has joined Cook & James, the Atlanta-based real estate attorneys who are pioneers of at-home closings. As a market developer, Jackson works closely with the firm to build social media engagement, advertising and web content for the firm and its agent allies.

“Heather and I are thrilled Mary has joined Cook & James and we look forward to seeing her expertise and enthusiasm springboard us to even greater success internally and with our valued clients,” said Kara Cook co-founding partner at Cook & James. “Mary’s values and strong work ethic mesh well with our corporate culture of innovation and collaboration and we look forward to traction from agent and client relationships she’s already developing.”

The market developer position was added after the firm unveiled a new logo and website earlier this year to drive new marketing initiatives and position Cook & James for accelerated growth. Jackson is a frequent presenter at the firm’s events developed to cultivate agent allies through robust support for practical search engine optimization (SEO) applications, web development, analytics and other social media strategies for agents’ successful business outcomes.

Jackson comes to Cook & James from Elliott Wave International (EWI), global financial market analysts and forecasters, where she was a product marketing manager responsible for sales and marketing strategies. Among other success at EWI, she redesigned the company’s social media and ultimately increased engagement by 200 percent in a mere six-month period. Jackson previously drove web and social content for FSC, Inc., a boutique public relations firm in Buckhead.

Jackson holds degrees in business marketing and English/communications from Truett McConnell University in Cleveland, Ga., where she played on a volleyball scholarship. She continues her active life now pursuing the great outdoors and is an avid hiker, camper, mountain biker and fly fisherwoman. She lives in Buford with her Rottweiler, Labrador/pit bull mix, and her husband.
