Broker/Owner, RNR Realty International
Nene Matey-Keke’s enthusiasm for real estate is second-to-none. With a background in real estate and project development, construction, and financial planning, he is uniquely positioned to offer clients a well-rounded perspective, breadth and depth of knowledge, and valuable connections.
He is a strong proponent of education. Over the course of his career, he has earned six professional licenses, four designations, and nine certifications (including working with seniors, relocation, and international markets). He not only believes in being well-educated himself, but gives back to his community by volunteering as a first time home-buying instructor for nonprofit organizations, teaching basic budgeting skills to formerly homeless Minnesotans, and teaching high school students the importance of financial literacy and the value of homeownership through a partnership with Junior Achievement, which he established with the Minnesota Association of REALTORS® while serving on the Board of Directors. His achievements were recognized in 2014 with one of the greatest honors in the real estate industry—he was named “REALTOR® of the Year” by the Minneapolis Area Association of REALTORS® for his association participation at the local, state, and national level, attentiveness to his clients, and active volunteerism.
He started his own brokerage, RNR Realty International, in 2004. Since then, it has “grown by leaps and bounds,” says Nene. He added a sales manager, 10 residential agents, and two commercial agents just to keep up with demand.
“We service a diverse range of clients,” he comments. “Because of our well-established relationships both in domestic and foreign markets, I truly feel my team has the talent, drive, and knowledge to satisfy any clients’ needs.”
