Renee S. Congdon

Renee is a Midwest transplant to Colorado. She grew up in Indianapolis and started her law career at a mid-sized firm in Indiana. She joined Sparks Willson in October 2017, and her practice concentrates on the full range of real estate matters for clients both large and small.  Renée has extensive complex real estate transactional experience as well as experience in providing guidance on title issues, special district and annexations. She has a wide variety of client representations, to include negotiations and documentation of complex commercial and real estate transactions. Here at Sparks Willson, she has been able to focus primarily on real estate and land use.

Prior to joining our firm, she worked for 3 years at the Colorado Springs City Attorney’s Office, which has given her insight that few have about how to effectively work with the government to accomplish clients’ goals. She understands the inner workings of local government and what elected and appointed officials are looking for when they make decisions.

Prior to her legal career, Renée served the Colorado Springs community as a fundraiser for the Colorado Springs Philharmonic Orchestra. Although she learned a lot from her time at the orchestra, it was her experience there that convinced her to go to law school. She felt like a law degree would help her to have a greater impact. She continues to serve the community as a board member of the Pikes Peak United Way.

Renée spends her time away from work with her husband and three young children. She hopes that one day her little ones will enjoy hiking and the mountains as much as she and her husband do.
