About Charlene

About
Charlene's foray into real estate began at Keller Williams where she helped to open their first franchise in Ohio and her passion for real estate began. Eventually she left KW and obtained her real estate license, but remained in a financial management role. The trigger for a sales career fell in her lap when a friend and mentor told her she should sell real estate. He said you can do this, I know you can and in 2004, she took the leap of faith. Today she cannot imagine her life without her clients, her team or most important, her growing family. Charlene's philosophy in starting her real estate career was to do the right thing in a transaction and always be forward-thinking in your business decisions. Her team is a shining light and each partner has their own area of expertise. Every person is different, yet we are a closely-knit family. This family works hard and always in our client's best interest. It is who we are and how we have become the success we are today!

Katie M. sold a home in Gahanna

We worked with Charlene Fairman last year when buying our new house in Columbus, OH. Charlene was extremely knowledgeable about the area. She took the time to talk to us about what we were looking for in our new home. We were undecided about the neighborhood, so she was very accomodating in showing us multiple neighborhoods in order to make the most informed decision. She was very patient with us and we were able to make the best decision for our family. We really felt that she genuinely had our best interest in mind from when we first started house hunting until our signing. We will definitely be using her to sell our house in the future.

Peter M. bought a home in Powell

Charlene and her team were a great help to us during our recent move to the Columbus area. All her team were very professional, responsive and trustworthy. She made us feel very welcome in a new unfamiliar town and quickly guided us to neighborhoods that met our needs. She was also of exceptional help in recommending and guiding us with respect to other needed services with the whole moving process.

Jannette C. sold a home in Hilliard

Charlene helped me buy and sell this particular home. I bought in 2011 and sold in 2015. Over the 4 years that we lived in the home, Charlene and I stayed in touch - her firm never forgot my birthday and always remembered us at Christmas with hand delivered cookies. We had so much faith in Charlene that my parents also worked with her to buy their condo when they moved back to Oh in 2013 from Arizona. She knows her business and she is not afraid of tough negotiations. She makes things easy with online document validations and signatures. Because we were moving to Florida and looking for homes here, I quickly realized just how professional the pictures that were taken of my home were and that it makes a huge difference when a firm shows a house as well as Charlene and partners do. They are a great firm to work with and I would recommend them to anyone moving to the Columbus area or just selling buying a home or property.

Adrienne K. sold a home in Hilliard

Charlene is fantastic. She helped us buy a home 2 and a half years ago and she was the only reason we were able to get our home in a competitive market. We came to her when we were transferred and needed to sell our home. Both her and the team helped to make sure our home was appropriately staged, photographed, priced and marketed. Charlene took care of us how she would want her own family taken care of -- and it made the world of difference! Our house sold in 5 days. We cannot thank Charlene enough -- and are so sad to have left the Columbus market and are unable to use her services for our next purchase!

Matt R. bought a home in Dublin

Working with Charlene was an awesome buying experience. She spent time understanding the type of home we were looking for and in the neighborhoods we wanted. She was available at all hours of the night and her knowledge of the market and proposed home values is second to none. When the right house came available, Charlene negotiated aggressively, worked to understand the sellers "hot buttons" and got us a fantastic deal (in a multiple offer situation). Being new to the area, she stayed in touch with us post-close and helped us find qualified contractors to assist in making the renovations we were interested in. On a scale of 1 to 10, Charlene is a 12!

Patrick F. bought a home in Hilliard

The Fairman team was incredibly responsive to our needs and questions. Both David and Charlene worked with us, first time home buyers, to find the right house and win the hotly contested bidding war.

Tyler A. bought a home in Marysville

I had a great experience with the whole team at Fairman. I was moving from out of state and Charlene provided me with a great deal of information about the local area and Ohio in general. When the time comes to move, I will be using them again.
