Karent Plasencia is a Broker Associate/Partner with Sears Real Estate and has been a Northern Colorado resident for most of her life. She has seen the community grow strong in density, diversity, and entrepreneurship. Giving back to the community where she lives has always been part of her core beliefs. Through her career as a REALTOR®, nothing fills her heart more than having the privilege of being a small part of her client’s accomplishment of achieving the American Dream of homeownership.
As a REALTOR® she has networked with many other entrepreneurs specifically Latinas who share the same level of enthusiasm and passion for giving back to the community. She is one of the founders and President the local non-profit Las C.E.O.S. (Chicas Emprendedoras Optimistas Sin-miedo). Yearly they award the Latina Emprendedora Scholarship to an inspiring Latina entrepreneur high school senior in District 6. They volunteer at various locations such as: Gifts from the Heart, the Weld Food Bank and Habitat for Humanity.
Her passion for giving back to the community does not stop there. She is also one of the founders and the Secretary of the Northern Colorado Chapter of NAHREP (National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals). She serves on the GARA (Greeley Area Realtors Association) Board and has been appointed the President Elect for 2024. She loves to listen to and dance to music. She believes it should be available for all to enjoy. To help keep the music playing in the local community she has taken on the Corresponding Secretary role for the Greeley Philharmonic Orchestra Guild. To share her observations and challenges in the local housing market she has joined WASSH (Weld’s Attainable, Safe, and Sustainable House Workgroup) to work towards actions/solutions for everyone to obtain a place they can call home.
