Karen was born and raised in Torrington, Wyoming. She began working at her family owned business at an early age learning the ins and outs of a retail business. After graduating from the University of Wyoming, Karen returned to Torrington. She was involved in the everyday management of the retail business until its sale in 2005. Karen obtained her real estate license in 2005 and teamed up with her husband in Diamond B Realty. Karen and her husband Russ have had the pleasure of working on Real Estate projects and Right of Way projects in Wyoming, New Mexico and North Dakota. These opportunities provided valuable experience working and negotiating with many people of diverse backgrounds from more than 36 states and some foreign countries.
Karen has been involved in the community and state for many years. She served on the Goshen County Hospital Board and The Goshen County Nursing Home Board for many years. She was also appointed by the Governor to serve on the Wyoming Transportation Commission representing Goshen, Platte and Laramie Counties. She was the first woman to serve as chairman of the commission. These commitments provided me with lifelong lessons in working with people, serving our community and state helping to make them better places to live.
"In July and August of 2017 we sold our Colorado specialty Ag property and bought the Crazy P Ranch Southwest of Buffalo, Wyoming. Through all of the work and processes associated with the buy and sell parts of these transactions Russ Bandemer and Diamond B Realty, were invaluable. Russ referred our Colorado sale to a local broker with the right expertise and the property sold at the top of our expectations; we had an offer, literally, before the property was even formally listed. The ranch purchase was even more important to us as it was our future. Russ worked hard and did a great deal of preliminary screening across a range of properties within the specific geography we were wanting. He compiled benefits and features on each property and, in most cases, toured the ranches before we arrived. Over three days we evaluated ranches together and narrowed our interests to two properties. Shortly thereafter we made an offer on our preferred choice and it was accepted; we closed on the purchase roughly 60 days after we first toured all the properties. Russ knows ranches and the attributes to consider. He was also incredibly diligent and responsive to our questions and ideas. And, importantly to us, he was thoughtful, friendly and very supportive through a fairly complex transaction."
