-Renee Thompson-, Broker/Owner, CRS, CLHMS, GRI, RENE
Hi, I am the Broker and Owner of Spartan Group Realty, serving South Tampa and the Tampa Bay region. It doesn’t matter the wealth of the client, or the size of the home; I am committed to listening to the client, giving sound business advice, and making my clients feel great about their real estate decisions.
I believe in continually educating myself to better serve my clients and learn from top producers around the country. I have earned one of the highest designations in Real Estate, the Certified Residential Specialist (CRS). A CRS Realtor® is your assurance that you are working with one of the top professionals in the business. Approximately 3% of all Realtors® have earned the CRS designation. I have also earned the Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist (CLHMS), assuring affluent sellers and buyers that I have the knowledge, experience, competence, and confidence they require. In addition to the above designations, I also achieved Graduate, Realtor® Institute (GRI) designation which has provided me additional knowledge on many of the technical topics in real estate. Most recently, I have been identified as a Certified Real Estate Negotiation Expert (RENE).
On a personal note, I served in the US Army around the world for a number of years. I have moved many, many times, and understand the stress, anxiety, and excitement that comes along with relocating. I believe that this experience and genuine understanding has helped me in my career. I am married to a wonderful man, have one child, and one dog. When I am not working, I enjoy reading a good book, cooking, traveling, and having the family over.
When deciding on a name for the firm, I decided on Spartan Group Realty for many reasons. A friend and client had come up with the name, and I loved it! I believe in the Spartan ethos; hard work, ethics, loyalty, never quitting. This is who I am. I am proud to be a Spartan, as I have run a few Spartan races. Also, I am very proud of my military career, where the same culture exists.
It is truly my pleasure to answer any Real Estate questions you may have, and help you with your Real Estate needs. I look forward to showing you the beautiful Tampa Bay area or helping you relocate to your next destination.
Have a wonderful day,
