Cook Realty Headquarters Symbol of Forward Looking Realty Firm [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park News-Herald & Journal — 17 October 1963
Cook Realty Headquarters Symbol of Forward Looking Realty Firm Cook Realty’s new headquarters building at 6330 N. Figueroa St., is the last word in modernity. The graceful effect of its functional design is softened and enhanced by refreshing touches of greenery. The 5000 square feet building contrasts in spaciousness and impressive beauty with the former headquarters at 6117 York Blvd. The contrast in fact is an accurate measure of the phenomenal growth of the real estate concern which has set records in sales and the amount of real estate deals handled in the 12 years of its operation. Beside the Cook Realty offices, the real estate building also houses the offices of a number of other firms. These are; Community Escrow, the law offices of Joseph Lazzaroni, attorney, the Cal-Dak Corporation. and Marion Brown, Insurance. The interior decor of the building is distinguished by decorative paneling and terrazzo marble treatment. Walnut paneling enriches the interiors of each of the Coo...

This service extends to Highland Park, Eagle Rock, West Pasadena, South Pasadena, Sagamore Park, Cypress Park and other Northeast communities to which Cook’s real estate sales and counciling service extends. This extra plus accommodam m tion is characteristic of Cook’s unique approach to selling real estate. Harnsberger sums it up this way; “What makes some realtors highly successful, while others must constantly struggle merely to survive? Ability? Of course. But it is something more than that. It is the ability of attracting and retaining a following every growing of clients and customers who freely entrust their confidence.

COOK REALTY RECORD SALES BASED ON FAITH! Over S3 Million Sales Tied To HP Progress [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park News-Herald & Journal — 17 October 1963
COOK REALTY RECORD SALES BASED ON FAITH! Over S3 Million Sales Tied To HP Progress The memory of a mother’s courage and devotion became the driving force that propelled Cook Realty from a run-of-the-mill office to its present multimillion dollar operation with its fingers in many Highland Park Investment pies. Ernie Harnsberger, the son who does not forget, took up the reins of management in 1952 when his mother, Mae Cook passed away and proceeded, with the help of Martha Walkinshaw, to build it into one of the most substantial realty companies in Southern California. It can be said with truth therefore, that Cook Realty which topped the $3,000,000 sales mark in 1962, is a monument to the mother, Mae Cook, who founded the company in 1924. In the twelve years of Ernie Harnsberger’s management, the company’s sales volume rose from less than a half million dollars a year to its present 1963 rate which may reach the four million dollar mark by the end of the year. Ernie estimates that 4...
Team Work of Cooks Staff Aided By Car Telephone Network [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park News-Herald & Journal — 17 October 1963
Team Work of Cooks Staff Aided By Car Telephone Network Whether the Cook Realty staff is sitting in their frequent staff conferences or its members are out in their cars driving to serve a client, the Cook Realty associates are always in close touch with each other. A combination of basic working philosophy and a unique communications network brings this about. Ernie Harnsberger tells about Cook Realty’s working principle; “We go on the belief that two heads are better than one, eight heads better than two. Teamwork is a working policy. We want each of our representatives not only to have the knowledge that comes from his own experience. We want them also to benefit from the knowledge, ideas and experience of all the other. “We pool our knowledge by constant communications. We have meetings, individually and in groups. Each contributes to the others’ knowhow so that the client has the benefit of our combined experience rather than just the one with whom he deals.” This is the first ...
Cook's Instant Service Also Is Knowledgeable Service [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park News-Herald & Journal — 17 October 1963
Cook's Instant Service Also Is Knowledgeable Service A corrolary to the “instant service” system of th e Cook Realty Company is a staff whose members have something of worth to communicate. This, the eight man and woman staff has in great abundance. The Cook staff is remarkably articulate, brimming with ideas and in sound knowledge of real estate development and sales, far above the average. The Cook company has planned it that way, according to Harnsberger. “The entire system depends on gathering together this kind of top calibre staff,’’ he says. No system can be any batter than the people who operate it." Beside Ernie Harnsberger, the Cook Realty staff consists of seven veteran real estate salespeople, many of them, like Martha Walkinshaw literally having grown up with the business. They are; Russell Austin who is presently president of the Northeast Realty Board, J. D. Mannie, Rosemary Beck, Robert A. Moore, Martha Walkinshaw and Emmi Campbell.
Old Timers Look Back 'Ancient' resident recalls old Garvanza phone [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park News-Herald & Journal — 17 October 1963
Old Timers Look Back 'Ancient ' resident recalls old Garvanza phone By Julia Mlkeska I date back to “ancient" times when the telephone prefix was “Garvanza” and the rate for a private line was only $3.75 without any kind of taxes added. The Garvanza prefix was changed to Albany after the new Telephone Exchange was built on the corner of what is now North Ave. 56 and Meridian St. The street signs used to read West Ave. 56 when we first arrived here. The Albany prefix with only four numbers remained for many years, until it was prefixed by either Clinton or Cleveland and an extra number added. Now we're supposed to omit the prefix and use seven digits. The corner property which we finally decided to buy was four blocks “up” from York Blvd. where we didn’t have to fear flood waters and from where we had a panoramic view of the hills from three sides of our house. With the passing of the years we found it interesting to see the progressive development in our locality and more street lig...

Old Timers Look Back Masl delivered in surrey [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park News-Herald & Journal — 17 October 1963
Old Timers Look Back Masl delivered in surrey By “OLD TIMER” Let’s go back to Thanksgiving Day 1904, when the Santa Fe "Overland” brought me from a land of snow to a land of flowers, sunshine and clean air, perfumed by the orange tree in our new home in Garvanza. Five rooms rented for $l5 a month. The Salt Lake Railroad had a daily train to Pasadena, with pullmans, for through passengers to or from the east. On the Santa Fe, the faithful old Overland rumbled through at 8:20 every evening. FIRST POSTMISTRESS Locally, in Garvanza the mail was literally delivered from a surrey with the fringe on top. The vehicle had a step on the rear and a seat just inside. The old horse plodded along in a zigzag pattern from house to house, seemingly without being guided. The post office was run for many years by Miss Jennie Gilbert, in an ancient building just south of the present gas station on Ave. 64 and York. I believe this station was the first in Highland Park. Two blocks north on Ave. 64, the...
