Hilliker Corporation, a St. Louis owned and managed commercial real estate company, knows how to help cook up deals in the city's downtown area.
Hilliker broker Patrick McKay recently represented buyer P&F Properties, which is owned by serial entrepreneurs Dr. Daniel Cook and wife Anne Leners, for the fourth time with this latest purchase. Cook's company has already leased the first floor of the 9,000-square-foot retail and office building located at 412 N. Tucker.
