A Bit About Me:
I love real estate! I am so fortunate to be in a business where I can help people buy a home --the right home -- and to help people sell their biggest investment. I'm in my eighth year in the business, and have done extremely well in the market. I think that's because I work hard, but also I'm very detail oriented naturally, and like to know --and follow-- the rules. And more than that, I'm a good listener. And I like people! I go above and beyond for my buyers and sellers, and I think that's been one of the keys to my success. Actually, I don't even know what "above and beyond" means; I owe everything to my clients. I have a wide range of skills and experience, but I am never afraid to say, "I don't know -- but I will find out." I'm about making my clients happy, meeting their needs. I never forget for whom I'm working -- it's the client, not the company. I've completed my GRI - Graduate Realtors' Institute-- and SFR (Short sale and Foreclosure Resource -- because I think education, both formal and informal, is what allows me to do an excellent job for my clients, and anything less than excellent is unacceptable. And one more thing: while I'm serious about protecting and serving my clients; serious about the rules, the laws, the ethics, I have fun doing it!
Areas of Expertise
Blue Ridge Mountain area, Asheville, Marion, NC Foothills Residential and Land Sales. Lake James homes and land, retirement homes and LAND, for that dream second- or retirement home. Local builder liaison for new construction.
We made first contact with Charlene as result of a dart throw search of the web for homes in the mountains of NC. We consider it a blessing that the dart landed on one of Charlene's listings. While that particular listing was not the right one for us, Charlene continued to work with us to sort through the myriad of options before us, including contacting agents outside her area. She demonstrated strong knowledge of the home market in the area. She was attentive to our desires and did not waste time on listings that did not meet our needs. Since we were traveling from another state to view homes, time was very important to us. Through the entire process, Charlene was enthusiastic and maintained a super human energy. What could have been a stressful experience was instead enjoyable! We now call NC home thanks to Charlene's competent guiding hand. - Jon & Cheryl Ridings
Dear Charlene, My wife and I were impressed with your knowledge of the local real estate market. You had a lot of patience and showed us a wide arrangement of available properties. It paid off and we are very happy with the property we purchased. We will recommend you to anybody we know who is looking for property in the area. -Best regards, Victor L Wennink
Hey Charlene, Thank you for all you did to make our dream of having a "get-away" home in the mountains become a reality. There is no way it could have happened had you not been willing to put in the extra mile for us because of all the situations that we ran into - seemed like tons of them at the time. Thanks to your hard work we now have a lovely mountain "get-away" that we have really enjoyed. Thank you also for checking on the house when you are in area. Not only do we consider you a terrific realtor, but a terrific friend as well. -Billie Page
