Karen Bartlett contacted the Veterans Business Outreach Center (VBOC) in February of 2011, requesting marketing assistance for Veterans Home Team, her real estate business in Fair Oaks, California.
Karen Bartlett is an independent realtor with Keller Williams Realty. Karen works diligently to educate and assist first time home buyers, specifically veterans on the home buying process. Karen collaborates with various banks and government entities to stabilize and sell REO properties back to home owners. She has participated in many workshops and even conducted a conference with the assistance of VBOC Business Consultants in August of 2011.
Karen, a veteran of the United States Army, pairs her entrepreneurial spirit with humanitarian efforts. Karen will be completing a cross country bike ride that will benefit two charities, KW Cares, a non-profit arm of Keller Williams Realty created to support Keller Williams Realty associates and their immediate families with hardships suffered as a result of a sudden emergency, and Operation Home Front, a veterans organization that provides emergency financial and other assistance to the families of service members and wounded warriors.
Karen’s dedication to supporting veterans, as well as her drive to become successful for both herself and other service providers has certainly made an impression on VBOC staff and business consultants! Karen was nominated for Woman Owned Business of the Year for the U.S. Small Business Administration Sacramento District Office, which was awarded on May 24, 2012.
