About Renee Cooney, Franklin, NC Realtor®

Renee Cooney, Franklin NC Realtor

Hello, I am a native of Macon County and have extensive roots in the WNC area.  I attended Southwestern Community College, where I earned dual degrees in Surveying Technology and Civil Engineering Technology. I am a licensed North Carolina Professional Land Surveyor and a Notary Public for NC. I attended Cumbie & Trull School of Real Estate in Asheville prior to acquiring my North Carolina Real Estate Broker license.  I am the Owner & Broker-in-Charge of my own firm, Legacy Properties by Renee, LLC, a member of the National Association of Realtors (NAR) and the North Carolina Board of Realtors (NCAR) as well as the Multiple Listing Service. I am also a 2018 member of the William C. Bass Leadership Academy with NCAR, where I will enhance my leadership abilities and represent our WNC Realtor area. 

I am the 2016 Realtor of the Year for Carolina Smokies Association of Realtors. I am also the 2015 & 2016 Past President for the Carolina Smokies Association of Realtors. I teach the Real Estate Prelicensing & Postlicensing Courses at Southwestern Community College as well as serving on the SCC Real Estate Advisory Committee and the Multiple Listing Service Board. I am involved in the North Carolina Society of Surveyors and the local Nantahala Chapter of the organization.  I am past President of the Parent Teacher Student Organization (PTSO) for Macon Early College and Past President for East Franklin Elementary School PTO. I enjoy gardening, hiking, sewing, and reading and traveling. 

I am blessed to say I had over 2.2 million in sales this year.  Please contact me today if you are looking to buy or sell a home, land or commercial property. I look forward to hearing from you.
