About Us

Bob Cook the broker is licensed in Idaho, Oregon & Nevada.

aboutAce Realty was established in 1976 by Ray Steinhaus and Bob Cook.  Both came from addition years of real estate with another broker here in the Treasure Valley of Idaho.  After several successful years as partners Bob and Linda  bought out the Steinhaus’s and they remain as independent owners to date.

Over the years most all of the franchise real estate companies have approached Ace Realty about becoming a franchise.  Ace has chosen to stay independent as they feel that they have the ability to offer more one on one personal service.  They have always prided themselves, as being unique with no way of knowing that just operating as an independent would become unique.

In 1999 they expanded their business across the border into eastern Oregon with an office in Ontario.  They acquired a super group of realtors who know the true meaning of T.E.A.M work.  Together everyone accomplishes more as they have been together for many years. Each office offers full services in residential, residential income, farms, ranches, dairies, development, auctions and property management.

Bob and Linda are both natives of the great state of Idaho.  Bob is the broker, Linda is a licensed Realtor working with the other agents in their offices.. They have been married for 45 years and have worked together 40 of those 45 years.  They have two children and six grandsons.  They have owned several businesses over the years from a grocery business to an automobile dealership.  Real estate has been their full time career for over 30 years. Sports has been a challenge for them, as there is not much that they do not like to watch and get involved in and there just isn’t enough hours in a day. The summer months for over 16 years were filled with Division 6 NHRA drag racing for Bob, Linda and their son, Darin.  Winter months are filled with snowmobiling, cross-country skiing and ice skating with family and friends.

The future belongs to those who dare.  Go confidently in the direction of your dreams and let Ace Realty help make your dreams come true.
