I started working in real estate in 1982 in Rockford, Michigan. I had just graduated from Rockford High School, and a good friend of the family, also a Realtor at the time, suggested that I obtain my real estate license, so I did. Interest rates at the time were 18% and it was a different world back then in every aspect of this profession. I wanted to grow in this profession. I knew it then.

From there I ventured deeper into the real estate industry by way of title insurance, mortgage processing, appraisal, loan origination, and underwriting. I loved working with people, but found that I was being lead away from what I enjoyed working with the most: The Home Owners!

I have found that I love helping them understand the continently changing real estate process. I love a client that calls just to say "Hi, and oh, by the way, can you look this home up for me?" or "Do you know someone who.....?" My initial meeting with new buyers and sellers allows me to stress one very important thing: Real estate changes daily! I love teaching what I learn!

I continue my education daily in this industry to better serve my clients needs. I read, I network, I blog, I take classes specially designed for agents to become the best agents for their clients and in their profession; I talk with other professionals to share ideas of what works and what doesn't. I research the market trends as well as monitoring home sales in my communities. I interview other professionals in the industry that might have a product or service my clients might need now or in the future. But most importantly, I listen to the needs of my clients so that I can fully understand what they are wanting from me..... their real estate agent for life!

I love what I do! Having someone working for you that enjoys what they do makes your real estate experience successful and less stressful. Although the times have changed in real estate since I began my journey, I truly love what I do. I love the fact that every home sale brings uniqueness with both the home and the buyers/sellers. No two homes are alike and neither are the clients. Their needs or their situation and therefore should have their real estate process designed for them.

What does this mean to you? Whether it is a first home, downsizing the family home, relocating, or anywhere in between, I will be involved and available. I have also become very passionate about helping those in need of short sale or foreclosure help. Giving hope and direction to those who are facing econmic issues is not the "fun" part of my job, but the most rewarding. My experience and knowledge allows me to get the best price for a buyer, negotiate the best price for a seller and is a resource for those who want to know more about real estate in their neighborhood and in real estate in general. Reviewing every week what has sold or is currently on the market in their neighborhood gives me the edge on marketing for a profitable, faster home sale. For home buyers, that means looking at as many houses as possible to find the best one that meets the needs of the buyer and helping them obtain the best financing as well as negotiate the best price for their new home. My goal is having happy clients for life! Your life! Your needs!

    Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $275K in Belmont, MI.
    We bought a home in the Grand Rapids area while living in Massachusetts. We only had one weekend to see potential homes, and we did the rest long distance. Because of this, Charlene had to do a ton of work for us, and she did so very well. We felt as if we were in good hands during this stressful process.  MoreLess

    Bought a home in 2013.
    Charlene's knowledge and expertise of the local real estate market was a tremendous asset to us during our pursuit of a new home. She quickly understood the likes and dislikes we had in searching for a home and worked diligently to find homes that matched our expectations. She was very patient with us as we looked at many, many homes until finally finding our perfect fit. Charlene worked hard to get us the best possible price for our new home and helped us navigate the challenges of titles, sewer inspections and all the other tedious aspects of the final purchase process. Based on this experience I would greatly recommend Charlene Hammontree.  MoreLess

    Listed, but didn't sell my home in 2010.
    If you want a caring, knowledgeable real estate professional who will work for you, listen to your needs, with a personal touch, than Charlene is the perfect choice! She assisted us in the selling process of our home, and provided us with the tools to make the necessary decisions throughout the process. We are grateful we found her, and would recommend her highly.  MoreLess
