In its profile on Cooksey, which will be featured in the September issue of the magazine, HousingWire cited the success of the Cooksey Team ($212 million in 2016 origination volume), the branch’s expansion into the North Dallas and Los Angeles areas and Cooksey’s individual track record of coaching both his internal staff and housing industry professionals across the country as reasons for his selection to the “2017 Insiders” list.

“The Cooksey Team would not be where it is today without my amazingly dedicated, hardworking staff,” Cooksey said. “My success is merely a reflection of the awesome work my team does day in and day out to help homebuyers purchase the house of their dreams, and because of that, I take immense pride in this honor.”

HW’s 2017 Insiders were selected by HousingWire’s editorial board based on their vital and dynamic contributions to their companies. The 33 winners are the “go-to” team members in their companies and represent a wide range of occupations within the housing industry, from lending and servicing to investments and real estate. The Insiders are the professionals their companies turn to with their most important or challenging projects because their contributions and hard work lead to superior results.
