*Licensed to sell real estate in N.C. & S.C!
Marshall Winstead is co-owner of Cooper Southern Properties, Inc and has lived in Alexander County for the last seven years. He graduated from South Mecklenburg High School in Charlotte, NC and then earned his Bachelor of Arts degree from UNCC.
Marshall owned and operated a window and door/renovation company for several years until 1997. He is a licensed building contractor and always enjoyed the construction industry and working with homes.
In 1997 Marshall went to work in the new home industry as a Realtor/Broker for the largest privately owned home building company in N.C. He gained valuable experience there and found that this combination of building and home sells was the type of work he loved best.
In 2001 Marshall's brother, a well known architect in Newton NC, encouraged him to move to the area, join him in some joint construction ventures, and consider opening a real estate company. Marshall did just that but soon met his fiancée, Marissa Cooper, who was also starting a company and they decided to join efforts and work together.
Over the last nine years they have created a successful real estate firm that in 2007 was named Alexander County's Small Business of the Year. Marshall is very active in our community serving where he can to make a difference. Marshall is involved in several outdoor sports and enjoys participating in running races and triathlons.
