Kevin Stelly – Round Rock, TX – Agent Char
Char is wonderful. Exceeded my expectation of who a realtor should be. Easily contactable and available when needed. Gave honest, helpful feedback on houses we viewed. If you are thinking about buying or selling you need to contact Char.
Micheal Dye – Austin, Tx – Agent Char
Char, did an amazing job working to get my house sold. She worked really well with my contractors to ensure we did the right update to my house to bring in the best offers. Due to her expertise and knowledge we sold my house the first day it was on the market for well over asking price. I would not recommend any other realtor but Char to handle buying or selling you real estate.
Zeid ~ Austin, Tx. ~ Agent Char Washington
I am very pleased that I had the chance to work with Char, I truly think that if it wasn't for her this deal would have fell off. First I was outbid for the house and with her help I won the bid. Then the loan process took too long with one of the major banks and it was her working tirelessly with the loan manager and the title company to help get it done. I look forward to work with Char in the future and strongly recommend her for others.

“Wow! She knows her stuff!” That was the first thing I told my husband after we met with Charl for the first time. It was such a great first impression that I did not want to look any further for a realtor. As we were new to the area, we did not have much knowledge of the neighborhoods and what to expect. Thankfully, Charl was able to guide us to areas of our liking by taking the time to getting to know us as individual and not just as clients. During the process of searching for the perfect home, we were able to feel as if she was truly looking out for us. While we looked at the home with excited future buyers’ eyes, she would tour the home and then tell us the repairing it needed and helped us envision what it could be with the help of a small home project. Not only did she tell us what needed repairing, but also she often gave us a pretty good idea of the amount of money we would be looking at. At the end, we were able to determine if we really wanted to invest in fixing the home or if we chose to keep on looking to a more ready to move in home. As previously mentioned, we were new to the area and it was possibly the reason why we were not as decisive as someone from the Austin area. With that being said, not once did we ever feel as if Charl was losing her patience with us or rushed into buying a home that was not “the perfect” one for us. All she would say was, “Okay, let’s keep looking!” with a positive attitude. We looked and looked and looked and looked some more for a house to call home and we finally found one. During the process of buying the home, Charl was there to support us and guide us. In the end, we were blessed to find such a kind, intelligent, determined and amazing person we are glad to call our friend since 2014. After some time, we had to relocate and sell our home. We did not have to think twice about reaching out to Charl. While being about six hours away from the Austin area, we could not be as involved in the process, but she always kept us informed of the progress and gave us suggestions on what to do in the home to make it more appealing. Again, it felt as if she had the best interest in us and not just in wanting to sell a home. When looking for a realtor six hours south of Austin, we hoped to find another Charl; if that was even possible. We met with several and each time I felt like flying Charl down and have her be our realtor or at least be with us when touring the homes to give us her feedback. OH I WISHED! I recall asking a realtor, “So, what improvements would you do to this home? Do you see anything we would need to repair?” I was so disappointed when her response was, “ No, it is move in ready.” WHAT! I thought to myself, it clearly was NOT move in ready, it just felt as if she wanted to have us buy any home. It made it even more obvious that we had won the lottery with Charl. I highly recommend Charl as a realtor as she was truly amazing and made the process fun. She is a straightforward individual who will work hard to get you into your PERFECT home.

Omar and Suzy Tonkins – ROUND ROCK TX – Agent Char
My husband and I were renting a home for 8 years we didn't think we were financially able to buy a home yet. We were referred to Charlette Washington by a co-worker that she had helped a few months prior. We were told she was honest and sweet and would work with our crazy hours.Our first impression of Charlette was that she had it together, knew what she was talking about and taught us so much about buying homes and what to look for. I had no idea looking for homes could be fun as well as informative. Not only did she refer us to a great Mortgage Lender, We never felt like our time was wasted or that we were rushed she made sure that each home we looked at was what we were looking for in a first time home and we only looked at a few before we found our dream home. We had a few bumps in the road with the seller But Char took care of everything and even worked on THANSGIVING to help us out . We have recommended a few people who are already buying and selling! Thanks again Char for all you did for the Tonkins family. Purchased a home in Round Rock, Texas Omar and Suzy Tonkins 12-10-2016
Ricardo Nellie Lopez Jaimes – Austin, TX – Agent Char
After my husband and I found ourselves renting for 8 years we decided to take the step to home ownership. Given that we would be first time home buyers we were looking for someone who would guide us the whole way. We were scared and afraid to find a realtor who would rush us into purchasing. It was a blessing to find Char. She turned out to be everything plus more than what we expected. She was very honest,trust worthy, knowledgeable and most importantly very patient. She treated us like family and was determined to find my family a home. Her devotion to her career is more than just a job she truly enjoys putting families in their future home. Since we would be first time home buyers she made sure we would love everything about the home. With her expertise she inspected every inch of the home before we even put an offer. From the beginning to the end of closing Char explained every move we would make. My husband and not only found the dream of our home we also found a friend in Char. She made us feel so confident in our decision. Char would be our number one recommendation to anyone looking to purchase a new home. After a little after a month of working with Char she found us our dream home. If you are ready to buy or just interested on what the steps to buy are please please reach out to Char!!!

Harihara Ranganathan – Round Rock , TX – Agent Char Washington
Char is a very highly skilled , kind and helpful realtor. She helped us (first time home buyers) locate and buy a home. While she ensured that the process was smooth and that we got a fair deal , she also educated us on buying and maintaining a home. She is a great realtor and one of the most positive minded people I have met. My wife and I appreciate Char's friendship and are very thankful that we could get acquainted with her.

Lance Avery – Austin, Tx ~ Agent Char
Char is an amazing person that makes you feel like family, from phone calls to in person interactions. She took excellent care of me and always double checked that the home was I wanted and pointed out any faults or issues. She is always knowledgeable and on top of everything. I would recommend her to anyone and have before. Lance Avery ~ Austin, Tx 5-6-2016
Tatiana Miller – Leander, TX – Agent Char
My husband and I are a young couple who w looking to purchase our first house. I was very nervous and scared to go into this whole process because of all the horror stories you hear about buying a home. Not this time. No horror story here. We found Austin Summit Group by chance when we were looking for houses on Zillow. They had a review pop up, and thank goodness it did. We met Char and explained what we wanted, What our price range was, what our must haves were, what we don't want, etc. Char listened to what we wanted, and found whatever she could to fit our needs and wants. She is very knowledgeable, she pointed out what was wrong, mentioned what had value, potential value, and so on, which helped very inexperienced buyers like us know what to look for and what to be aware of. She went above and beyond for us on many occasions, occasions that I believe most other realtors wouldn't do. She has an extremely friendly disposition, one of which makes you feel like old Friends and not just clients. For me that was a huge positive. We are truly grateful for having Char as our realtor and all the help she provided is. She's a great person and a wonderful, hard working realtor. I would recommend her to everyone. Thank you Char and the Austin Summit Group. Tatiana Miller ~ Leander Tx 5-6-2016
Carol and Frank Whiteaker – Odem, Texas – Agent Char
We consider ourselves extremely blessed to have had the privilege to work with Charlette. We closed on our new home yesterday and we are so incredibly happy! Char played a HUGE part in making it all happen so quickly and smoothly. Because we were also selling our home in Corpus, while looking for a new home in the Leander area, we had many irons in the fire at the same time and she was sensitve to that and worked with us and our crazy schedules. We had a small window to work within and she made it happen. She made our new home buying experience such a positive one. She is so knowledgeable, professional, attentive and went above and beyond to ensure that we were informed and taken care of. From start to finish, she was always available and helped us throughout the process to make sure we were happy and well informed. She took time to get to know me and my husband so that she knew enough about us to help us find the perfect home. She is reliable and trustworthy, beyond measure. Her knowledge of the communities she serves is also such a tremendous asset because when you are moving from one city to another, it is so helpful to know about the community you will call home. Her knowledge is so vast and she takes time to educate her clients, like us, who value that. We are very fortunate that she was our realtor who represented us, took care of us, walked us through each step of our home buying process. We are thankful for the relationship that we built along the way and will definitely refer her to anyone who needs realty services. We have asked her to help us with putting our existing home either on the market for lease or for sale so we will continue to rely on her expertise. Thank you Char!!!

Jaime and Tammy Gonzales – Cedar Park TX – Agent Char Washington
Charlettee was recommended to us by our old next door neighbor who had just moved out of our old neighborhood. I had numerous friends in Real Estate, including my own father in South Texas. But the personal recommendation from our good friends was out of norm. Our neighbor is very, very particular. So, seeing as how we were looking, we called Charlottee. I am not a very trusting person when I meet people, but she immediately made us feel comfortable. She's extremely knowledgeable on everything about homes and regulations and upgrades. She never had a problem showing us multiple homes, although she quickly figured out what we wanted and found it very quickly. She was on our side the entire time and took care of advocating for us on the entire process. Calls back and forth with her were like talking to close family member. We took every recommendation she gave us, and have saved thousands on things she saw coming and we planned for ahead of time. We've been in our house for over 6 months now, and we absolutely still love it. I don't do recommendations. But believer me, Charlottee is someone you can count on. I recommend her to anyone.

Jessica Ramirez – Leander, TX – Agent Charlettee Washington
Char is amazing. She really understood, through a single conversation, what I was looking for, and we found my dream home in a matter of days. She was an amazing cheerleader as I took the plunge into home ownership, and really took the time to make sure I understood what I was stepping into. I would and will recommend her to anyone I know that is in the market. Jessica Ramirez Purchased a home in Leander, TX 12-21-2015
Richard A Lazo – Round Rock, Texas – Agent Char Washington
Char was a God-send during a turbulent week in my life. My wife & I decided to separate and I needed to find a condo/apartment/house to lease near my family as we have two young boys. She found something for me in 3 days and I moved in a week after meeting her. 7 days! Char understood my situation and literally worked into the wee hours for two nights working through applications & contracts. When this lease is up in 6 months, I will absolutely lean on her again if my situation does not change. Her personal attention was heart-warming & comforting during the worst week of my life.

Dwaine and Alana Thompson – Liberty Hill, TX – Agent Charlette Washington
From our first conversation in the winter of 2013, while I was stationed overseas in Okinawa, Japan, Charlette has been a new home buyer’s dream realtor. She entertained some of the most austere or unusual questions and comments that I’m sure most home buyers never ask. One thing that stood out for my wife and me was the tremendous patience she has for people. I must have asked some questions many times over that had been thoroughly explained by her before. Nevertheless, Charlette answered them over and over again to us. She has been a true professional, and her knowledge and expertise demonstrated that she was clearly not a rookie realtor. There have been so many scenarios that could be highlighted, but there are certain characteristics of Charlette I would like to share that stand out and distinguish her from the rest. Charlette was always true to her word, all the way through this process. She did not mislead us one time. Her loyalty was impeccable. Her loyalty to me, the buyer, was evident even more so as she battled it out with the seller on our behalf. I can’t tell you how many properties we asked about, and she researched all of our requests, following up with us in a timely manner. She is a very hard-working, dedicated realtor, who is also down to earth and understanding, and we appreciate our time spent. Instead of a business transaction, the whole process felt like a lasting relationship of friendship for life. She did not rush us, but kept us informed, and updated us with the latest information on the market. We thank you, Charlette, and hats off to you on helping our dream of being home owners become reality. Thank you for all your hard work and helping us find and acquire our dream home. Even through the crazy time zone difference of Japan to the U.S., it never hindered you from helping us. We are so thankful for you!! And may the Lord give back to you all the time taken away from your family helping us find our home. God bless, Dwaine, Alana, Dejahnae, Shanaya, and Isaiah Thompson ~ 8-3-2015
Jennifer Giffen – Austin, TX – Agent Char
When my partner and I decided to take the plunge and purchase a home in Austin, we were a little apprehensive. Having no idea what to expect and little to no knowledge of what that would entail, we went for it. In choosing a realtor for help, I knew Char was our girl. Having had few interactions with her through mutual friends, we felt safe choosing her to lead us on our journey. From the minute we met for lunch to discuss the process, I knew that our choice was on point. Char has an aura about her that exudes honesty. She wanted to ensure that we were looking at things from all angles. She was never reserved when sharing her knowledge of what were important considerations when purchasing a home. We felt safe with her and knew she genuinely had our best interest at heart. She went out of her way to make sure that every single detail of each house was in good, safe condition. She took us under her wing and made sure that whatever house we would choose had everything we wanted and more. She expressed concern when appropriate and pointed out important factors to consider that never even crossed our mind. She is brilliant. We were amazed at the amount of knowledge she had about foundation, air conditioning units, roofing, flooring, the list goes on and on. We must have looked at 30 houses before we finally found our home. When my family was in town, she took time out of her very busy day to drive an hour out of her way to come down and show them the house that we had bid on. She made the process so much fun and much easier than we could have ever imagined. She turned what we thought would be a grueling process into an amazing adventure. We cannot sing the praises of Char enough. She is the salt of the earth in our eyes. Now as one of our close friends, we are blessed beyond belief to have Char as a part of our lives. Thank You Again Char for Everything. Love - Jennifer and Melissa 6-4-2015
Alecia and Mitchell Lovci – Georgetown, TX – Realtor Char
My husband and I decided to move to Texas from North Carolina and had every intention of quickly buying a home. After getting a short six month lease with an apartment complex and checking out the housing market on our own, we quickly decided that we couldn't go at house hunting alone. After a few less than fantastic experiences with several realtors, a co-worker recommended Charlettee. From the start Charlettee was quick to respond to any question, no matter how small and really seemed to care about what we wanted in a home. Especially as a first time home buyer, she made sure we were comfortable with our decisions and understood the process every step of the way. She's so knowledgeable of the housing market and really every facet that goes along with it. She doesn't miss a beat; every time we mentioned a project we were interested in starting with our new home she had a recommendation or connection to help get it done. I couldn't be happier with my home buying experience. Alecia and Mitchell Lovci - Georgetown, TX 6-2-2015
Linda McAllaster – Austin TX – Realtor Char
I just recently bought my first home and had a wonderful experience with the whole process largely due to Char my realtor. She was very energetic and positive that we would find the right home for my son and I. She listened to the criteria that I needed and immediately started sending me listings so we could begin the search. Char is extremely knowledgeable in her profession and answered all my questions in a manner that I could understand. I never once felt pressured to submit an offer on a house. Char made my house buying experience a memorable one and I have no doubt in my mind that if I wanted to sell or buy another home she will be the realtor I go to.

Ryan and Emily – Liberty Hill, TX – Agent Charlettee Washington
Char is amazing! Our family tends to be picky about a lot of things, and when it came to finding our new home, we were definitely hard to please. We had all sorts of ideas about what we wanted, didn't want, and just couldn't live without. Char listened to each and every one of those ideas and followed through to help us find just the right home. In the months and months we spent looking at dozens and dozens of houses, Char never gave up on us. Instead, she listened, answered all our questions, and patiently showed us each and every home that might fit our requirements. Most importantly, she was genuinely interested in what we wanted and whether we were happy. When we finally found our perfect home, Char was there every step of the way to get us smoothly to closing. She was fantastic, and we’d recommend her to anyone. Ryan and Emily, Liberty Hill, TX
Lynn Lau – Austin, TX – Agent Char
I was looking for a leasing agent to lease my town home and saw Char delivering a case of beer to my new neighbors from across the street. I went to introduce myself and my neighbors told me that the lady who had just left was their agent who had helped them find their rental. They said a lot of great things about Char and encouraged me to contact her. So I did. To be honest, I did shop around and contacted another agent. I came back to Char as I found her much more organized, attentive to her clients, and easier and more flexible to work with. Char has a lot of experience and is always willing to share all the ins and outs of the business. I also appreciate the fact that she cares about both sides' needs, which really makes the process smoother. Char has given a lot of good tips in making potential tenants at ease, which has helped build a trusting and amicable relationship with my current tenant. In the end, I have found really good tenants and it's a win-win situation as we are both very pleased with each other. I cannot thank Char enough for all her help and expertise. I highly recommend Char to anyone looking for a leasing agent! Lynn Lau - Austin,Tx
Anthony Esquivel – Cedar Park Texas
My wife and I have had the pleasure of working with Charlettee in purchasing our new home. I met Char while browsing on-line months ago various properties and realtors while I was living in south Texas. She was one of many who promptly called me back on a property inquiry. However, as our conversation went on I got a sense of comfort and sincerity in her voice and tone. She came off as very down to earth, kind, and non over-bearing. Most realtors are too pushy and tend to take over and can mislead you in the entire home-buying process. Charlettee is the exception! She takes the time to listen, gives sound advice, and is an outstanding worker. As my wife and I got to meet her for the first time, we knew she was the one who was going to help us find our home. She demonstrated superior knowledge on what to look for in the house & neighborhood and the overall house-buying process. Char also displayed utmost patience when showing us multiple houses. My wife and I fully endorse Charlettee Washington for anyone looking to purchase a home! Anthony Esquivel 10-14-2014
Allison & Shane Summers – Austin, TX – Agent Char
Char was a pleasure to work with. Any questions we had she was quick to find the answer and respond. She made our move to Austin less stressful and enjoyable. We were able to find the house we wanted the first time we went out with her because she narrowed down our options based on our feedback and provided us with a well filtered list. By only viewing houses in our price range and which fit our specified criteria it was easy to make a decision. It was a great experience and we will definitely be using her again when we look for our next home! Allison & Shane Summer's 10-14-2014

Praveen Rapolu and Samatha Rapolu – Austin,TX -Agent Char Washington
Charlettee is an excellent real estate agent we found. We were glad that we were able to find our perfect house with the help of her. After working with several agents, we found Charlettee as the right one for us. Charlettee is unique in that she is very sensitive to various cultural backgrounds and understands the clients. We were very particular about the "Feng Shui"( vasthu) configuration of the house and Charlettee really helped us in finding the right one. She is very knowledgeble about the market trends and keeps us informed about what's available and the right choices. She has a great deal of patience, worked beyond our expectations and helped us negotiate to get better deal. We were also able to get the best Mortgage Loan Plan available in the market through her assistance. We look forward to work with her for future ventures. Praveen & Samatha Rapolu 10-9-2014
Ian O’Hala ~ Austin, Tx. ~ Agent Char Washington
Charlettee was more than helpful in everything with our lease. Me and my roommates were having a lot of problems scheduling times to visit houses. Char was more than helpful at scheduling and staying in contact with us throughout the entire process. Thanks for everything and I know in another year we will be contacting her again!

Deborah & Hunter Harms – Leander, Tx – Agent Char Washington
My husband and I were renting a home for 2 years when at the last part of our contract our landlord informed us he was selling by having his realtor show up at our house unexpected. Needless to say my husband and I were frantic we had 2 months to be out and didn't think we were financially able to buy a home yet. I found Charlette Washington just by looking at various homes and their realtors and honestly she just had an honest and sweet face :) I had dealt with a few realtors by the time I contacted Char but it wasn't a pleasant experience. Our first impression of Charlette was that she had it together, knew what she was talking about and taught us so much about buying homes and what to look for. I had no idea looking for homes could be fun as well as informative. Not only did she refer us to a great Mortgage Lender but she also looked for various grants and ways to help us. We never felt like our time was wasted or that we were rushed she made sure that each home we looked at was what we were looking for in a first time home and we only looked at a few before we found our dream home. I could write all day about how wonderful of a person Charlette is, to know her is to love her :) I have recommended her to everyone I know if they are ready to buy or even if they don't think they are financially able to, still reach out and get a hold of her because she will find a way to make it happen like she did for us!!!

Trey Drury – Austin Summit Group/Char Washington 2/14/2014
I had the privilege of working with Char this past December and January 2013/14. My wife and I were first time home buyers and she could not have made the process any easier. Because we were new to the process, she went the extra mile to help us fully understand what home buying is really all about, and gave us realistic expectations. We were able to communicate to her what we wanted and she found us anything and everything that fit into that list of specifications. She was very honest with us while looking at houses, pointing out both the pros and cons of each, and didn’t pressure us in any way. Because she tailored every search more and more each time we gave her input, we were able to find our house within a couple of weeks. Her fast action actually allowed us to visit the house less than one week of it being on the market. She did her research and was very strategic on our initial offer to ensure we were not paying more than the fair market value of the home, while still ensuring the sellers would not be scared away from our offer. After our offer was accepted, she kept in contact throughout the closing window, letting us know what was going on and what we needed to do next. She referred us to a great mortgage lender, and continuously found ways to save us money. We closed on our house in about 30 days with no problem and it was easier than I had imagined. I couldn’t thank Char enough for getting us into the home we really wanted and loved. Trey Drury 2/14/14
Ashley & Brian Roderick – Austin, TX
My husband and I were looking to move to a home with land out in the country, Charlettee really listened to us, even as we were still figuring out what we wanted. Her enthusiasm and knowledge about not only real estate, but general homeownership really shows. The home she found for us was perfect! Charlette helped make the process of buying a home smooth and easy. She is our #1 recommendation to all of our friends. Ashley & Brian Roderick
