About Us

At the leading edge of technology and on top of the market for over four decades, learn about the brokerage and its agents that makes CENTURY 21 Bill Bartlett such a well-known name in Central Texas Real Estate.

SINCE 1973

Central Texas' Top
Real Estate Brokerage

Bill Bartlett started this legacy of a company in 1973 as Bill Bartlett Real Estate. Leaving behind his career in life insurance with Farm Bureau in Brownwood, Texas, he sought to build something for himself and his family, closer to where he was raised. He found an office in Belton and opened its doors as its newfound proprietor. He would later reminisce this choice as the second best decision he ever made in his life, his first: marrying Ruth.

Since that bold decision to leave a promising career to start a business and jump feet first into Real Estate, our company has prospered. We moved our office from Belton to Salado in 1982 and joined CENTURY 21 in 1992, becoming what we're known today. Throughout the years, our integrity and intense desire to better our community have shaped every decision we've made, allowing us to garner the reputation and respect needed to succeed.

Values

Teamwork

Many offices compete amongst themselves, producing a toxic environment to the detriment of the client. Not Here! We work fantastically with our clients, other brokerages, and ourselves. (besides, we have to see each other at Thanksgiving!)

Professionalism

We are incredibly friendly, but that doesn’t mean we don’t have a job to do. You will never need to worry whether we will be on time, how we hold ourselves in negotiations, or if we will ever lose our cool.

Honesty

Our words can always be taken at face value. We strive for openness, so you can always stay informed. Even if the truth is inconvenient or difficult, it is our job to make sure you never worry if you have the full picture.

Integrity

Not only are our words true, but our actions always follow our words. If we say we’ll do something, we do it; if something changes, you’re the first to know. The last thing we want is for you ever to be blindsided.

Loyalty

We will never lose sight of who our client is. Acting in our own self-interest is not only wrong but also an easy way to ruin a business. We will always have your back.

Responsiveness

We make responding to not only our clients a priority but everyone else party to your transaction. Unfortunately, many brokerages overlook this important facet of being successful in our industry. We realize the quicker we respond, the quicker you’re in your dream home.

Our Team

Of the 8 people at CENTURY 21 Bill Bartlett, 5 are from the Bartlett Family; the other 3 might as well be.

5 Agents - Each a Rockstar in Their Own Right

For over a decade straight, CENTURY 21 Bill Bartlett has won the CENTURY 21 Per Person Productivity Award, given to offices with only top producing agents. This means that you’re guaranteed to have an amazing, smooth, and experienced professional whoever you pick from our agents.

BILL BARTLETT

Founder | Namesake

Bill Bartlett is the founder of not just our company but the Bartlett Family as well. The progenitor of two more generations of Real Estate Professionals, his two daughters, a granddaughter, and grandson continue his 49 year legacy of providing exceptional service to an ever-growing clientele base. Serving as the Chairman of Salado ISD Board of Trustees, a member of local banks’ Board of Directors, the President of the Temple-Belton Board of Realtors, being elected to the Water Board, and many other local positions, he is a shining example to the rest of us on what community involvement truly means. He sparked our family’s passion for giving back to the community, eventually granting the Bartlett Family the honor of being inducted into the Salado Hall of Fame in 2009.
