Charlene is exceptional. Always responsive, patient, and very thoughtful. She never tried to "sell" us on any of the many homes we visited, and instead took time to educate us (novice home buyers) and point out pros and cons our untrained eyes often overlooked. I have 100% confidence in her, would highly recommend her to everyone, and absolutely intend to work with her when/should the time come.

Charlie's knowledge was over the top. Had great ideas to market with the open house extravaganza and it paid off in 3 weeks time. I am grateful for her time and effort in this project!

Charlene made selling our family home an enjoyable experience. She not only respected the beauty of our home itself, but she listened and appreciated our desires for it to go to a family that would love it as much as we did (rather than subdividing it into apartments or something similarly unfortunate). I will not outline the numerous ways she helped us get everything together- I was overseas, and could not handle many of the nuts-and-bolts. She did it far better than I could have anyway! Perhaps the kindest, most thoughtful and most thorough professionals I have had the pleasure working with. Less ... More

Charlene was the utmost in professionalism. What impressed us most was that she took excellent photos of all the houses she represented. She edited our house's photos to make sure they looked perfect. She was so invested in getting our house sold that she even bought a plant to go next to our front door to make it look more inviting, a fine touch we never thought of. We were impressed with her from the beginning. We contacted multiple agents asking for proposals for our property on what services they would offer. Charlene was the only realtor to actually come to us prepared with a glossy presentation outlining her services and what we could expect to get for our property based on comparable properties in the neighborhood. She never pressured us and offered great advice. She was first class from the beginning to the end. We highly recommend her and would definitely work with her again. Less ... More

It is natural, that sometimes we need help or advice and we call our family doctor or electrician, plumber we trust. Same thing with real estate market. We need real estate agent who knows the market, highly professional, honest, reliable and punctual. Call Charlene Haislip - she has it all and you will see the difference. You will feel confident taking important decision. I called Charlene in 2012 and I am very happy I did. Every time I have question or need advice - she is there to help. Thank you, Charlene! Less ...

Charlene's guidance enabled my wife and me to purchase a house in Pittsburgh as an investment property. Her commission was paid by the seller. After the purchase she quickly found reliable tenants for us without receiving compensation from the tenants or us. We chose Charlene because of a stellar recommendation from a client who used her services to purchase a number of investment properties over the years. Our experience with Charlene was even better than we expected. She helped us to understand how we could best achieve our objective, which was to purchase a house in a vibrant part of the city that we would rent out until retirement, and would then either occupy or sell. She presented us with properties that met our criteria, which we refined under her guidance. She advised us against purchasing properties that would have earned her a higher commission but that would have been a poor investment for us. Unlike an agent we had employed when we purchased our residence, she did not inundate us with unsuitable prospects or try to rush us. When the tenants she found for us move on Charlene will find new ones, without charge. Charlene acted in our best interests, and has been a pleasure to work with. I strongly recommend her services.

Charlene is the go to agent when you want more than help with the basic home buying process. Most agents are fine with this basic help. Charlene digs deeper during the process and uncovers layers of helpful information that the average home buyer wouldn't even know exists.

Working with Charlene was a very positive and educational experience for my husband and I. Not only did she help us in selling our home, she was instrumental in assisting us in the process of building our new home. She is articulate in the financial end as well as the marketing process of the selling of our home. She worked very hard for us and it was a difficult selling time in the housing market. She knew we had to sell under a deadline and made sure we got the highest we could for our home. We would highly recommend her to anyone buying or selling a home. This is her Full time job. She takes this profession very seriously and loves what she is doing. We could not have hired anyone better to work with. She made the entire process stress free. Less ... More

Charlene was the biggest blessing to our family. We were buying a house from out of state and on a time crunch and Charlene went above and beyond to make sure we got the house that was perfect for our family. Through all of the negotiations, inspections, appointments, etc that we could not be present for, Charlene acted on our behalf and made sure everything was done with exact precision. I wouldn't have felt comfortable with anyone else representing us but Charlene because of how knowledgeable she is on the local market, extra addenda and clauses, as well as buyers/sellers rights. Through our whole process of buying our home, we almost felt as if she became a part of our family. If you want an expert in the Pittsburgh area that will bend over backwards to make sure her clients get the house that is meant for them, then go with Charlene. Less ... More

Charlene helped us to buy our first home.She had so much patience with the whole process, even when I was ready to give up! She's a great realtor who's very knowledgeable about the housing market. I have had other agents in the past but none as caring and concerned as she was! I would recommend that if your looking to buy, sell, or do anything dealing with realty you need to contact Char she is the best!!!

Charlene is an awesome realtor! She is focused and knows her market - and, most importantly, she listened to what we were looking for, and showed us only appropriate properties. She pointed out the problem spots as well as the positive assets. She helped us negotiate a good price and helped guide us through the complicated world of realty sales. We would certainly use Charlene again and highly recommend her!

There isn't room here for me to say how competent Charlene is at her job. She has helped me buy and sell two homes, and purchase a third. She is incredibly knowledgeable when it comes to financing, local laws (she keeps abreast of laws that *are going to be passed* to help you be totally on top of things and not be caught by surprise), taxes, construction/remodeling, the list goes on. I have probably looked at 100 homes over the past 15 years, and not once did I feel like I was a burden. I've looked in just about every area of the city and surrounding areas, and purchased in 3 different places - she knows it all. She is so professional, but also a fun person to hang out with for a day. She has an ease about her that is wonderful and welcomed when going through the home buying/selling maze. I recommend her very highly, and will never consider using another agent. Less ... More

Charlene is very knowledgeable about the local area, and both the buying and selling side of home sales. She was patient and helpful through months of searching for and negotiating the perfect home for me and my kids, and even though it was a small sale, she treated me with the same respect, time and care as if I were buying a mansion.

Charlene helped us to purchase our very first home. Buying a home can be a scary process, but not if you are working with Charlene! She really impressed us, even from our very first meeting. The first time we met she discussed all of the pros and cons of pretty much every Pittsburgh neighborhood, spending hours with us, helping us to figure out where we even wanted to look. She then hung with us for over 9 months of looking! She never lost her patience with us, and was always able to answer pretty much any question we had, whether it was about construction, taxes, schools, decorating, etc. I cannot recommend Charlene enough. She is not only very professional and knowledgeable, but also a genuinely great and caring person. Less ... More

Charlene was correct in making assumptions about the need our buyers had for help financially. Yet, when they offered less than our lowest offer, she told us not to go lower and to hold our ground. They came back and accepted at our price. She really knows what she's doing.

I cannot recommend Charlene highly enough! As first time home buyers, we were clueless about all of the ins and outs of home buying. Charlene guided us through every process and was always available when we had questions--and we had several. We viewed several houses before we found our current home which meant many many hours with Charlene and throughout it all she was patient, knowledgeable, and great company. When we are ready to sell and buy a new home again we will be calling her without a doubt. Less ... More

Charlene was an incredible help when purchasing my first home. She spent so much time finding places for me to see and showing me homes in the parts of town I was interested in. She was a positive and knowledgeable source throughout the entire process and was able to find me the perfect home, exactly where I wanted to be, and for a great price. I cannot speak highly enough of how great it was to work with Charlene as an agent.

Charlene helped us buy our home and is now our selling agent. Throughout our buying process she was very diligent in looking for a home that fit our wants and needs. She was the buying agent for our daughter as well and found her a perfect home. When it came to selling our house she was the first person we thought of. She is realistic in terms of assessing our home as to the market value and the community we live in. She proved to be an apt negotiator when we closed on our home in terms of price and recommendations of items that needed to be addressed. Less ... More

Charlene was the most honest and professional agent I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with when selling my home. The house was on the market for two days and sold. I recommend her highly as a real estate agent.
