Episode 15: Interview with Karen Brown


About Karen Brown:

Having grown up and lived in Colorado all of my life, I’ve been drawn to the outdoors and an active lifestyle. I’ve worked in store and mall management, but those experiences were merely leading me to something better – working in real estate and ultimately working at Keller Williams.
