A Little About Me:
I am a born and raised Northwesterner. I was born in Spokane, Washington, lived in Seattle for 15 years and have called Portland home for 20 years now. I LOVE Portland. It is such an easy, friendly, beautiful and enjoyable place to live! I've lived in SE Portland (Clinton St, Westmoreland, and Eastmoreland) for 15 years and before that I lived in NE (Irvington and Dolph Park).
My formative years were spent in the parochial school system, including a girls High School. Desiring a "bigger pond", I set off to the University of Washington where I obtained a Bachelor's degree in Speech Communication and a Master of Arts degree in Organizational Communication. My first career was in Marketing and Advertising with a large financial institution. Then I ventured into Health Care Marketing at the University of Washington Medical Center, followed by Women's Health Care Program Management in Washington County, Oregon. After having children, I became a Stay-At-Home-Mom and Property Manager for 8 years.
Real Estate has been in my blood for a long time. Since 1990, I have owned and managed investment property: 4-plexes, duplexes, single family homes, condos and a vacation rental. During this time, I remodeled and restored many homes. When my children were both in school, I decided that it was time to get my Real Estate license and I've been actively selling Real Estate for 8 years now. I specialize in older homes and plexes in close-in SE and NE Portland and working with clients who plan to rennovate homes.

Here's What Some of My Clients Say
about working with me...
"I worked with Charlotte as a buying agent on my last home purchase. She spent a considerable amount of time pre-screening potential homes and was a great help in finding just the right one. There was never any pressure to settle for a house I wasn't completely happy with. I would recommend her to anyone contemplating the sale or purchase of their next home."
---T. Hill, SE Portland
" Wow! I cannot thank you enough for leading us through this wonderful whirlwind! Your time, help, and patience have been precious during this journey."
---A. Mann, North Portland"
"A million thanks yous. In the last year of looking at houses, Carla and I have met with many different real estate professionals, and worked closely with two of them, who we thought we could work with. As it turned out, they always seemed to have an agenda that didn't meet our needs or goals.
You came in like a breath of fresh air. From working with the seller, to lining up and meeting with the inspectors, to contacting the city regarding the sewer, and finally sitting with us during our signing, your service is far and above any elses we've ever worked with, and we just want to say how much we appreciated your attention to detail and how much we value you as a professional and friend.
If this letter sounds a little over the top, we've acheived our goal, because it's supposed to sound that way, since it's the way we both really feel about working with you. Thank you again, we look forward to working with you in the future."
---Carla M. & Robert B., SE Portland
"Thank you for all that you did to make our home buying process such a pleasurable experience. Your thoroughness, your expertise and your listening ear earned our trust almost from the beginning. But your desire--not just to sell us a house--but to find us a home that we would truly love, is what won us over completely.
We feel blessed for the opportunity to have met you and work with you."
---Mark & Karen NE Portland
"Charlotte is wonderful to work with. She is very skilled at accentuating the unique attributes of a house. She contacted an architect friend to render a plan for a master bath addition. This visual display helped potential buyers to see the possibilities for that space. We were very pleased with our selling experience."
---Corrina & Nathan SE Portland
"Hi Charlotte. I want you to know just how much I appreciate all you did to facilitate and bring to an end the sale of my sister's house. You not only went that extra mile, you went many extra miles."
---Lura A., Grangeville, ID
"CHARLOTTE, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR HELPING ME FIND A HOME. YOU WERE SO WONDERFUL PROVIDING SUPPORT AS WELL AS KNOWLEDGABLE INFORMATION. I FEEL FORTUNATE THAT YOU WERE WILLING TO GO THAT EXTRA MILE FOR ME. YOU ARE AWESOME."
---CHRIS, NE PORTLAND
"You rock--I really apppreciate working with you. Thanks so much."
---KATE, NE PORTLAND

"My family really likes Portland...the kids have made a lot of friends already. This was actually a really smoooth transition from one state to another thanks to you. I'll keep you in mind when others mention that they are looking. You have a calming personality which is really helpful during those times of high stress!!"
