Karen Abbey – 2015 Outstanding Member of the Year

Karen has committed to the 501(c)(3) a community partnership which allows her to give back 10% of her commission from UFSC home purchase/sales referrals to our organization.  Karen Abbey of Coldwell Banker Bain has been a Small Business Resource Client for three years.  She consistently shows up and participate in our cause, such as the Veterans Stand Down at Central Community College.  Coldwell Banker Bain sponsored a tee box sign at our 1st and 2nd Charity Golf Classic.  Karen recruited a new member, Chris Freeman, to join our organization as the Treasurer during our annual Holiday Soiree/Mixer.  In addition, Karen sponsored a 1st Time Home Buyers Workshop for the young professionals pursuing the “American Dream,” home ownership.  Karen is willing to continue supporting the organization with homebuying options and is working with her mortgage lending partner.  Karen’s fresh outlook and smile lights up any room she steps into.  Thank you Karen for the years of dedication to our organization and supporting our mission.
