An expert in the real estate space, Kurt Carlton is a solution-oriented, innovative leader who operates with a refreshing, candid perspective. As the co-founder and president of New Western, Carlton currently oversees the New Western portfolio of companies, including the company’s consumer brand HomeGo and its lending platform, Sherman Bridge. Along with the CEO, he establishes and oversees the short and long-term goals, planning efforts and overall strategies for all aspects of the businesses.
Carlton has spent the last two decades in the real estate industry. During the 2008 recession, he saw an opportunity to help rewrite the playbook for the investment real estate industry, thus co-founding New Western. That vision has led to the largest private marketplace for fix-and-flip and fix-and rent residential investment properties in the U.S., operating in over 40 markets and supplying homes to more than 150,000 investors.
Prior to founding New Western, Carlton worked in the mortgage industry and with real estate developments in the U.S. Virgin Islands. He is a licensed real estate agent and mortgage broker in multiple states.
