Charisse is the best real estate I’ve worked with. Was clear on all fronts and sent paperwork and information faster than any other agent I’ve worked with. Will seek to use her again.

My husband and I first met Charisse when she was showing prospective homes to our son and daughter-in-law. We were impressed with her friendliness, knowledge and ability to step back and let us discover and discuss the particulars of each home. When the new home was selected we were again impressed with Charisse’s thoroughness and attention to detail when it came to contract negotiations and completing due diligence. Charisse also sold our son’s condo in record time. My husband and I had been thinking about moving to a lower altitude for some time so when the grandchildren moved we decided to look for another home – specifically a one-of-a-kind home at a much lower altitude and close to the children. Charisse found us two unique properties that offered us the space, privacy and tree-laden yard that we were looking for. Ultimately, we purchased the property that gave us the much lower altitude we needed and was still within three miles of our grandchildren. Not only did Charisse exceed our expectations in finding our dream home but she helped us negotiate an acceptable sale price and was always there for us to enable and monitor all the due diligence inspections in a timely manner. Above all else, Charisse is a good person!
My wife and I had a completely seamless experience searching for, viewing, and buying our home with Charisse! She was very much on our side the entire time, and coming from out of state ourselves, she was extremely informative about the current market. She found and lined up all our mortgage and closing needs, and even surprised us with a delivery dinner on our first day in our house after we drove 12 hours to get here, had a trailer full of our belongings, and didn’t know anyone or anything about area! I would recommend Charisse 1000% for any of real estate needs!Update: it’s been over a year and a half since we bought our home with Charisse’s help and she has never failed to serve our needs with any questions or concern we have had since! She has helped us find contractors to do a Reno, given home warranty and rental tips, and even found us a lender that has refinanced our house and saving us over 650$/month on our mortgage! Charisse never fails to add value to everything she does! She has never charged a cent for any additional help or advice and went above and beyond!
When we were getting ready to sell our house, it was probably one of the hardest times of my life. I had just lost my job, I had no prospects insight and we were scared. The last thing we wanted to do was sell. We loved our home and we had made it into something special. When we contacted Charisse she was a breath of fresh air. She was positive and despite the rough situation we were going through, she somehow lifted our spirits and made us believe that we were going to be ok. When we first talked to her about what we were hoping to get from the house, she asked us, “Is this something that you are sure you want to do?” I was very taken aback by this question. When we sat there and thought about our situation and what we wanted to do, the fear we had, left. She helped us realize, without actually saying anything, that this was a stepping stone to something better, to something more. We agreed it was time and regardless of our situation, this was the right thing to do. She made us feel like real people and not just another sale. She showed us the way to position our home to make people see their future in it. She helped us not change our home but create an environment where others could feel as if they were in their home. When we put the house on the market (Saturday), we had an open house that same day. Before the weekend was over we had multiple offers on our home; all at, or above what we were asking. She brought an excitement back into our home that had been gone for multiple weeks. She was able to sell our house 16%-18% higher than what we purchased it for the year before. That was insane to us. Charisse gave us the chance to start over and have enough to put down on a new home. We loved her so much that we used her to help us find a new home too. Which was another amazing experience.
I originally met Charisse as a referral when she did paperwork for me to sell my house to a family member. We developed a relationship through this process and I realized Charisse wasn’t interested in just money, but in me! I told her that I was selling another home of mine to my son-in-law’s niece and told her for how much and the terms, which were not good. Charisse asked me questions and found out my motivation and she cared enough about me to tell me the truth! She told me that she believed I could make more money if I listed my home, and offered that if she couldn’t sell it by the time the other people were willing to buy it, she would let me out of the contract. So, we listed the home. I ended up making $70,400 more on my home than I would have. Charisse marketed it well and we had over 20 offers as a result. Due to some extenuating circumstances, Charisse went above and beyond by going to the Courthouse to obtain documents, calling numerous people to find out information, and getting connected to the people we needed to find out the answers to some questions we had. Charisse is not only friendly, knowledgeable, passionate about serving her clients, and goes above and beyond, but is also compassionate. Even though we closed, we still get mailers, notes, calls, and other information from her periodically. I would HIGHLY recommend her and will use her again!
We want to extend our gratitude to Charisse Walker for being such a great realtor. My wife and I began to look for a new home a little over five years ago. We were living in a beautiful home in a wonderful Taylorsville neighborhood and were quite happy, it just wasn’t our dream home. We had very specific requirements and requests and would not accept anything less. Simply put, we knew what we wanted and we weren’t going to settle. We were unsure we would ever find the home we were looking for in the location and price range we were set on. We searched for a home with various agents for a long and wearing 5 years and endured frustrating and disillusioning attempts at home purchases. It is as if other realtors would send us to homes that had none of our expectations. We were ready to give up and remodel our existing home when we finally found Charisse Walker. Charisse listened to our needs and wants, she understood what we were looking for. Charisse was always there to assure us that everything was fine and to answer all of our many questions. She never pushed us into doing anything that we didn’t feel comfortable with. We always felt that we were important to her and that she always had time for us; it was as if we were her only clients (though we know she had many other projects going on). Charisse is everything that you look for in a great realtor, she is professional, knowledgeable, honest, kind, patient, helpful, and determined. She helped us find the perfect home for our family, right when we were ready to give up again. We are so grateful to have worked with Charisse and we would definitely recommend her to anyone who is looking for a wonderful, hard-working realtor. She is the best!
As we were first time home sellers Charisse was very attentive to each detail including the multiple questions we were asking sometimes on a daily basis during the brief time our home was actually on the market. That was the amazing part- our home listed and we had multiple offers the very same day. Even though our first contract did not pan out- the second contract was started two days later with the suggestion by Charisse to raise the listing price. Which we did and got above our asking without concessions. We thank Charisse for this- she guided us on how to prepare our home and even lended a hand with staging. We were anxious as we were moving from Utah to Arizona on a time frame deadline but leaving our home in Utah knowing that Charisse was keeping an eye on it was such a relief. Charisse kept in contact each step of the way. Charisse is professional and caring. People say that buying/selling a home can be one the more stressful things a person(s) can go through so why not have someone by your side that is outstanding.
Being an architect who was looking for a lot to build my own home on, I frightened more than a few Realtors away in my search for the perfect property. I had a very specific idea in mind of what I wanted and where I wanted it. Many people told me that what I was looking for just didn’t exist in the neighborhood I wanted to live in, and if it did it would be way out of my limited price range. Luckily I found Charisse. Between our combined efforts, a lot of searching, and even a few unsuccessful offers, we eventually found the needle in the haystack. Charisse helped guide me through the process of putting in the offer, which I did from my phone while on the beach in Miami, and even helped set up loan options to secure the lot until the construction loan went through. She also helped put me in contact with the right people to get the construction loan and made a very stressful process, much more manageable. Thanks to Charisse’s help and expertise I soon will be starting construction on my first home which has been a dream of mine for many years now.
