About / Bio
Ron Cooper is the founder of R.S. Cooper & Associates Realty, a real estate brokerage firm that specializes in the marketing, management and disposition of Real Estate Owned (REO) properties. As a seasoned veteran in the real estate industry, Cooper established the firm in 1983 and positioned R.S. Cooper & Associates competitively in a niche in the market overlooked at that time by most real estate brokers. Thus, allowing the company to gain market share as a REO service specialist and to prosper in the fast-paced Southern California real estate arena. Ron developed a unique “Production Team” client service model that enabled a comprehensive approach to performance of key functions required for the effective disposition of residential REO. That effective business model set the standard for other brokerages seeking to build REO focused clientele.

He is an active member in numerous industry trade groups, including the California Association of Real Estate Brokers (CAREB), Consolidated Board of Realtists, Southwest Los Angeles Association of Realtors (SWLAAOR), National Association of Realtors (NAR), and California Association of Realtors (CAR).
