Zechariah Cook, Founder, The Bulfinch Team

Douglas Elliman Real Estate


In Boston’s real estate scene, Zechariah Cook stands as a seasoned professional, guiding clients through the complexities of the market with expertise honed over 15 years in the industry, learning the market by living in many of its vibrant neighborhoods. As the founder of The Bulfinch Team within Douglas Elliman Real Estate, Cook specializes in sales and leasing, focusing on properties in the Greater Boston area with a keen eye on neighborhoods like Back Bay, Beacon Hill, South End, South Boston and Dorchester.

His journey into real estate was a deliberate pivot from the restaurant and hospitality industry, where he spent more than a decade crafting memorable experiences for guests. “I absolutely loved it and thought I was going to go in the direction of owning or managing restaurants,” he recalls. However, inspired by a period of self-reflection and readings from authors like Napoleon Hill and Tony Robbins, Cook set his sights on a new horizon—real estate. With his wife by his side, they chose Boston as their new home, and Cook dove headfirst into the industry.

Throughout his career, Cook’s deep-rooted connection to Boston has been instrumental in his success. “Living and investing in different neighborhoods throughout the city has given me a unique perspective and experience when it comes to Boston real estate,” he explains. His commitment to service and exceptional communication skills have earned him the trust and admiration of clients, who appreciate his personable and relatable demeanor. “In the majority of my reviews clients find me to be someone they can trust, and they know I am on their team,” he shares.

Beyond his professional endeavors, Cook remains deeply committed to his family and community. A proud husband and father of two, he builds his schedule around his family’s needs. Additionally, Cook is actively involved in philanthropy, serving on the Huntington Avenue Advisory Board and co-chairing the Teen Professional Development Committee.

“We worked hard to create a positive culture that was focused on being the best version of ourselves,” he says of the team culture within his office.
