Cook Wins Inaugural Fox Haas Award

Recognition named after patriarch of the Mossy Oak brand

Bud Cook Fox Haas AwardMossy Oak Properties, Inc. is pleased to announce that Bud Cook, Broker for Mossy Oak Properties NC Land and Farm in Lake Waccamaw, North Carolina, received its inaugural “Fox Haas Award” at the company’s recent Land Summit, held June 7-8, 2017 in Starkville, Mississippi.

The Fox Haas Award, named after the iconic patriarch of the Mossy Oak brand, recognizes a member of the Mossy Oak Properties network that was nominated by their peers for possessing characteristics such as honor, integrity, and a servant’s heart.  Cook, who has been with Mossy Oak Properties since 2009, was humbled by the award.

“To be named the first recipient of the Fox Haas Award was overwhelming and a great honor, and I am humbled to even be considered for this award.  Mr. Haas is so very deserving of having an award named after him, because he is the definition of Mossy Oak: honor, integrity, service, and a land stewardship. There is only one Fox Haas, but each of us at Mossy Oak Properties strives to live up to the great example that he sets for us daily.”

Toxey Haas, Founder of the Mossy Oak brand, commented: “My dad has always been the most humble and unselfish person I have ever known.  He gets up every day just thinking of what he can do for everyone else.  I think that is why his quote ‘the good that men do will live long after they are gone’ is most appropriate to honor him.  It’s a simple message to spend time on things that matter…and last!  His lifelong commitment to honor, integrity, and leaving things better than he found them is self-evident and impacts everyone around him.  People like Bud Cook are cut from the same cloth, and we are thrilled to recognize Bud with this inaugural award.”

Mossy Oak Properties was launched in 2003 to assist landowners, sportsmen, and investors in their pursuit of the perfect piece of rural property.  The Mossy Oak Properties network has grown to over 90 offices in 26 states throughout the country, and currently boasts an inventory of over 3300 listings totaling in excess of $2 Billion.  Selected as a national "Best Brokerage" by The Land Report, our network also had twenty six groups named as Best Brokerage award recipients.  For more information, call 1-866-667-2289 or go online and visit
