In the vibrant communities of Frisco, McKinney, Allen, Plano, Prosper, and beyond, Renée Johnson stands out as a dedicated and accomplished real estate agent. With a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Communications from Texas Lutheran University, Renée’s journey into real estate was a natural progression of her passion for real estate and football, particularly as a devoted Dallas Cowboys fan.

From Corporate to Real Estate

Renée’s career path took a significant turn in 2002 when she transitioned from a successful 25-year tenure at AT&T as a Senior Systems Analyst to pursue her real estate ambitions. Rising swiftly in the local market, she founded JRenee Properties in 2005, marking a pivotal moment in her commitment to serving her community’s residential and investment real estate needs. Operating under the umbrella of Fathom Realty, Renée ensures that her clients and mentees receive personalized attention and tailored strategies to achieve their real estate goals.

One of Renée’s key strengths is her extensive knowledge, exemplified by her achievement of the Certified Residential Specialist (CRS) designation. This expertise allows her to offer dedicated representation to residential sellers and buyers, ensuring their needs are met and exceeded. Renée’s ability to offer invaluable guidance to investors looking to expand their portfolios further enhances her comprehensive services.

Joining Fathom Realty

Intrigued by the inspiring journey of her 86-year-old Aunt Ruby, who transitioned into real estate after a 30-year career as a registered nurse, Renée decided to follow in her footsteps. The connection to Fathom Realty deepened when her Aunt’s daughter, Angela, joined the company about twelve years ago. Acknowledged at the 2023 Fathom Summit as an enduring agent, she is still an integral part of the company today and played a pivotal role in recruiting Renée to embark on this exciting venture. Renée also recruited her cousin Sheryl Patterson, who is with Fathom Realty-San Antonio. This familial influence and the prospect of a fulfilling career in real estate prompted Renée’s decision to join Fathom Realty in 2020.

Nurturing the Community

Renée’s commitment to nurturing the real estate community extends beyond client interactions. Her leadership roles at AT&T, involvement in church ministries, membership in the Real Estate Agent Leadership Council, and status as a Fathom Certified Mentor highlight her dedication to guiding the next generation of real estate professionals and serving the broader community.

Partnering for Success

Wendy Cloud of Encompass Lending Group shared her perspective on working with Renée: “As an Encompass Mortgage Loan Originator, I’ve enjoyed partnering with Renée. Her clients enjoy the confidence of having a knowledgeable REALTOR®, ensuring they are in excellent hands. Moreover, I’ve witnessed Renée excel as a mentor, generously sharing her expertise with newer agents and seamlessly coordinating transactions under the Fathom umbrella, often pairing them with Encompass Loan Officers like myself.”

Advice for New Real Estate Professionals

Renée advises envisioning yourself as the entrepreneur and CEO of your own venture for someone embarking on a real estate career. The onus of the company’s earnings and success rests on your shoulders. While the work can be challenging, the potential rewards are substantial. Within the confines of Fathom and TREC guidelines, success aligns directly with the effort invested. Renée suggests making consistency, commitment, and the desire to help others be your guiding principles, recognizing that dedication will drive achievements.
