Renee Lossia Acho was destined for a life of real estate - you could say it’s in her DNA. Her grandfather was a broker in the late 1960s and her uncles are successful architects and builders (whom she worked for as an apprentice during summers) and her aunt and mother are skilled designers.
Despite having a natural ability for architecture and design, Renee ultimately decided to become a high school teacher. She graduated from the University of Michigan and began teaching for the Farmington School District. As a natural trailblazer, during her eight years working in education, Renee helped to develop the Block Scheduling program which has since been adopted by school districts across the nation.
Although she didn’t pursue architecture or design as a profession, her love of these mediums never waned and while she was teaching and raising a young family, Renee would help friends design their own homes by sketching out kitchens and layouts.
Renee eventually left teaching to raise her family and after one of her children began to need additional healthcare, Renee was motivated to get back into the workforce. With her natural skill for architecture and design, entrepreneurial drive, and the desire to remain flexible for her family, Renee obtained her Real Estate license in 2005.
While working as an agent, builders realized she had the unique ability to bring to the builder’s attention the current styles, needs, and wants of the market and apply them from the very beginning of the building process — in the design, the selections, and finishes — so that the end result was on target with the needs and wants of homebuyers.
Renee has been recognized as a Top Producing Agent every year since 2011 and in 2016 Renee was among an exclusive investment team who introduced the Keller Williams luxury brand to Birmingham by launching KW domain. The company has now expanded to more than 250 agents and is a leading real estate brokerage in metro Detroit. As a top real estate producer and industry leader, Renee is consistently one of the top-producing agents in the state and has generated over $550 million and area sales ranking her among the top 1% of realtors nationally. She credits her industry knowledge, experience in architecture, building, and design, and creative marketing for her success. The expertise, market knowledge, and commitment Renee provides each client results in an unsurpassed experience and is the number one reason why referrals continue to be her primary source of her business. Her volume in 2019 alone was $53 million – an accomplishment she said would not have been possible without her team.
For nearly a decade Renee has been recognized as a female leader in metro Detroit. Her many include the 2013 Women’s Council of Realtors Entrepreneur of the Year, 2015 Esteemed Women of Michigan, and in 2017 she was the first woman to be named as the Chaldean Chamber of Commerce is Business Person of the Year.
Active in her community, Renee serves as a board member for the Children’s Hospital of Michigan Leaders for Kids committee and was the first female on the Bank of Michigan board of directors. This year, Renee was selected as a 2019 panelist for the United Way Female Influencers.
In her free time, Lossia Acho enjoys designing and building her own homes. She is currently on her seventh project since 1999. She draws the plans from scratch, and each project has a completely unique design from the last. Most of all, however, she enjoys spending quality time with her three children.
