Kristen Cook, Nutley resident and VP of the Montclair-based Abrams Team, again co-stars on season two of the HGTV’s “Scoring the Deal,” a show where professional athletes spend millions on luxury homes. The new season premiers next Tuesday, February 4th at 11pm.
Cook appears on the reality show about the fast-paced world of high-end home buying with business partner Jason Abrams, dubbed by the industry as “Jerry Maguire of real estate.” (Baristanet interviewed Cook last year when the series premiered.)
In the series, Abrams and Cook help find dream homes for some of the greatest names in sports, such as NFL stars Kyle Arrington and Keith Bulluck; NBA pros Rudy Gay and CJ Watson; MLB’s Jerry Hairston Jr., and Brandon McCarthy; NHL star Kyle Quincey and WMBA standout Brittany Jackson.
The premiere episode features NBA star Rudy Gay and his fiancé Ecko, who have been living in a hotel room since he was traded from the Memphis Grizzlies to the Toronto Raptors. Not quite ready for permanent roots, the couple is eager to find the perfect luxury rental. Also featured is former MLB World Series pitcher David Wells who wants to list his sprawling Tuscan-style mansion located in Fairbanks Ranch, San Diego.
“When pro athletes get traded, become free agents or need a second home, that’s where I come in,” said Abrams. “Most real estate agents deal with a specific territory, but I deal with the entire country. And it’s my dream job to find these athletes their dream homes – with only a few days to complete the transaction.”
