If you asked a young Rebecca Cooper what she wanted to do when she grew up her response was , “I want to be able to help people”. Although she was one of the only girls in her middle school biology class who was not horrified about having to dissect a miniature shark, the course descriptions for biochemistry and physics in college were more than just a little intimidating so a career as a medicinal chemist or neurosurgeon was off the table.
Although she is not out discovering a cure for cancer her career choice as a Realtor with Cooper Southern Homes at Atlanta Communities does enable her to help people with one of the largest financial investments they will make as she guides her clients through the homebuying or selling process. As a licensee for nearly twenty years she has had the privilege of helping clients in all walks of life from those purchasing a first home to those downsizing as they enter their empty-nester years. In 2018 she obtained Top Achievers Gold Level membership with Cherokee Association of Realtors.
As the daughter of an educator and as a mother herself she has a passion for supporting education, which is why she created the Cooper Cares Home Initiative whereby each of her clients selects a school to be the recipient of a $500 donation upon their home closing. Her desire to support her community and her heart for helping children is also evident as she is the founder and coordinator of the Weekend Blessings Backpack Program at Kennesaw United Methodist Church and serves on the Paulding Education Foundation Board and leadership team of Marietta Business Association.
