Lender Recommendations

We know the very best people in this business and we want you to meet them too. Need a helpful suggestion? Just ask!

Short Contracts

We meet people all the time who want to work with us and can't because they are "trapped" in a long contract elsewhere. Usually 6 months to a year. Our listing contracts are 3 months in length. The shortest you will find.

A Relationship

We are not a large corporate real estate firm. We are small on purpose and want a relationship with those we work with. We value the "people" side of this business and hope you will stop by the office from time to time to say hello. If you like being cared about, we might work for you!


The Charter House Team is lead by Mark Charter, who has over 12 years of experience helping people buy and sell homes. Mark has sold over $100 million in real estate during his career, so you can rest assured, there is no situation that cannot be handled.

Visibility and Tools

If you list with us, your home won't be a secret! We get your listing where it needs to be and it will look great, thanks to great photos! Your listing will be on all the major websites you would expect.

    Mark was a one-of-a-kind Realtor to work with. He was available all hours when we had questions. Not only did we get the lot we wanted, we also shared $2500 with another couple at his $5000 drawing! Since our purchase he has cared about us as individuals. What Realtor does that after the paperwork i…Read More
  • Robb Spearman - RE/MAX franchise owner
    Having owned a real estate brokerage for many years, I believe I am qualified to say Mark is truly a one of a kind agent. From his marketing to his promotions and idea creation, I have witnessed Mark come up with things I have never seen from any other agent. Mark truly cares about his clients and h…Read More
