We worked with Charlene and Donovan this past fall on a piece of land we were interested in. They were hands down the most responsive real estate professionals we dealt with during our search and I trusted them every step of the way. Even though it was a fairly small transaction, everything was handled efficiently and professionally. I can recommend Charlene and Donovan without any hesitation if you are buying or selling.
Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $175K in Springfield, OH.
My home had been on the market for a while (almost a year) with another agent attempting a short sale. The broker noticed our house was still listed and had given it to Charlene to get it "off their books." I was told, she was the best I could get, and that she was Realtor of the Year and I should have no worries. I was promised she would get it sold and she did! Once in her hands, we had an offer in a matter of weeks, it was taken care of with little to do on my part. She managed to get the bank to approve the shortsale!! I was getting married during all of this, as if I wasn't already stressed out!! She was very supportive and made the whole process stress free.
She helped me and my new husband find the home of our dreams not long after that! Everything she does is in the best intrest of the client. All calls, texts and/or e-mails are ALWAYS answered promplty. Actually i don't ever recall having to leave a voice mail because she always picks up her phone.
I highly reccomend Charlene!! She made the selling process less painful and the buying much more enjoyable!! I am very happy in my new home, and owe that to Charlene!
