Karent Plasencia stands as a dedicated individual within the realm of real estate, carrying the titles of COO, Broker Associate, and Partner at Sears Real Estate. Her roots have firmly taken hold in Northern Colorado, a place she has called home for most of her life. Witnessing the growth of this community, she remains humbled by its increasing density, diversity, and entrepreneurial spirit.
Embedded in her very core are beliefs centered around giving back to the community that has nurtured her. Throughout her journey as a REALTOR, there exists no greater fulfillment for her than the privilege of playing a small role in her clients' journey towards achieving the quintessential American Dream – homeownership.
As the Chief Operating Officer of Sears Real Estate, Karent Plasencia's influence reaches far beyond her community involvement. With a humble demeanor, she channels her dedication towards nurturing a thriving real estate environment that goes beyond transactions. Her role extends to vital aspects such as agent retention and recruitment, as well as the strategic planning that propels the company's continuous growth. Karent’s approach to agent retention is grounded in fostering an atmosphere of support and camaraderie. She recognizes that a united team thrives, and she works earnestly to provide avenues for professional growth and development. Her humility shines as she attributes the company's success not to herself alone, but to the collective efforts in the company to continue to be “Simply the Best.”
In the company of fellow REALTORS and entrepreneurs, particularly remarkable Latinas, Karent Plasencia has fostered deep connections. These connections share a common thread of enthusiasm and a resounding passion for making positive contributions to the community. Her endeavors have led to the co-founding of Las C.E.O.S. (Chicas Emprendedoras Optimistas Sin-miedo), a local non-profit organization. One of their annual accomplishments is the bestowal of the Latina Emprendedora Scholarship, a beacon of hope for aspiring Latina entrepreneur high school seniors within District 6. Beyond this, their volunteer efforts extend to invaluable institutions such as Gifts from the Heart, the Weld Food Bank, and Habitat for Humanity.
A testament to her unwavering commitment, Karent Plasencia is also a founding member and Secretary of the Northern Colorado Chapter of NAHREP (National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals). Her influence reverberates across the spectrum, including her role on the GARA (Greeley Area Realtors Association) Board and her impending presidency in 2024. A lover of music and dance, she passionately believes in making music accessible for all to relish. Her role as Corresponding Secretary for the Greeley Philharmonic Orchestra Guild epitomizes this conviction.
Delving even deeper into her aspirations, Karent was an active participant in WASSH (Weld’s Attainable, Safe, and Sustainable House Workgroup). This involvement underscores her dedication to confronting the challenges within the local housing market, striving alongside others to pave the way for attainable, secure, and sustainable housing solutions.

In the year 2023, her dedication and contributions have been acknowledged through notable awards. Among these accolades, she was honored with the prestigious Entrepreneur Award by the Hispanic Women of Weld County. This recognition serves as a testament to her remarkable entrepreneurial spirit and her tireless efforts to uplift and empower those around her.
Additionally, her impact has resonated even further as this fall, she will be recognized by the Friends of a Woman's Place with the title of Outstanding Women of Weld County Community Champion during the 30th Annual 2023 Celebrating Women Gala. This honor underscores her exceptional dedication to making a positive difference within the community, particularly in the realm of supporting women's well-being and empowerment.
