Christie’s Charlotte Homes For Sale & Real Estate


Colleen Ludington & First Book Charlotte

Presence in the Community

Colleen Ludington has a deep love of real estate and a passion for helping people buy and sell homes. With an eye towards staging and design, she can walk her clients through the process of turning a house into a home. She also has a love for helping children in her community.

0042 Ludington

That interest began while living in Nashville, TN in her late 20’s, when Colleen started spending her Saturday mornings volunteering with an organization called “Kids Klub.” During her 3 years of volunteer work, she was inspired to write a children’s book, which went on to become a best-seller.  She traveled the US speaking to kids groups, and donating books wherever she went.

First Book, Charlotte

When she relocated to Charlotte in 2004, she decided to harness her passion for serving under-resourced kids and began an internet search for how she could marry her love of reading and philanthropy.  She discovered First Book, a nationwide nonprofit that has provided more than 125 million books to children, and launched a local all-volunteer chapter in Charlotte in 2005.
First Book’s research bore out what she had seen first-hand in Nashville; in the average middle-income family, there are 13 books per child, yet in the average low-income neighborhood, there is only 1 book for every 300 children.
First Book LogoOver the last 11 years, Colleen has Chaired First Book-Charlotte,
advancing their mission of helping kids fall in love with reading through the ability to own their own new books.  The local chapter of First Book is the most successful in the nation, and Colleen now also Co-Chairs the National Advisory Council of First Book.

 Spring Gala

The 11th Annual Spring Gala will be held Friday, April 28th at The Peninsula Club.  This event, an upscale yet fun celebration of reading and the magic of books, raises the lion’s share of funding for the group. Because they are an all-volunteer board, 100% of the funds raised by First Book-Charlotte stay in the community and help to provide new books to local children.  At a cost of around $3 for a new book, sponsorships and donations go a long way towards changing the life of a child.
You can purchase tickets or become a corporate sponsor for the 11th annual Charlotte 2017 Spring Gala

Michelle Campos & The Ada Jenkins Center Spring Gala

Ivester Jackson | Christie’s agents are very involved in the local community, serving dozens of charities around the region.

Each month we spotlight one of our brokers who is helping to make Charlotte a better place.  Today we’re highlighting Michelle Campos, who works with the Ada Jenkins Center in Davidson. “The reason I got involved with the Ada Jenkins Center was to help make a direct impact on our community. While most look at our area as an affluent community, there are many people in need,” says Michelle, who is serving on the sponsorship committee for center’s 2017 Spring Gala.

A native of Charlotte, Michelle grew up in the SouthPark area and attended UNC Charlotte as a Division 1 scholarship tennis athlete.

After graduating, she moved on to a Fortune 500 sales career and soon became a successful business owner; owning both a large 0011 Campos MichelleCrossFit gym as well as an athletic recovery business in the Lake Norman area.

Drawing from her experience in high-level athletics, and from growing multiple successful businesses, Michelle brings an analytical, and results-oriented approach to her real estate
relations.

Million Dollar Range Surges in 2016, Post-Election Showings Point to Further Momentum

Luxury Market Surges

The Charlotte luxury market surged forward in 2016, bolstered by a strong performance in the $1 million to $2 million dollar price range which showed a 30% annualized increase in Charlotte, and a whopping 59% increase in Union County.

The entry luxury range below $1 million, also showed strong performance in both areas, posting a 17% increase in Charlotte, and a 23% increase in hopping Union County.

Pre and Post-Election Activity

Pre-election surveys reported as much as 45% of high net worth individuals indicated they had parked money on the sidelines, making the yearly results all the more impressive. Not surprisingly, post-election showing activity jumped, particularly in the million dollar range, with showings in Union County jumping 39% over the same November/December period last year, while Charlotte posted a 33% increase, a clear indication that first quarter 2017 looks to post strong results.

The range above $2 million continued to see a competitive resale market due to custom build options and infill/tear down activity striking a popular chord with ultra luxury buyers. Sold resale results in this range were down slightly compared to 2015.

Here’s a sample of just a few positive reviews you will find online.

Reviews:

Zillow – Lisa McCrossan

“Lisa is a true professional. We had our house listed with 2 other agents who like most real estate agents come in tell you all about their marketing programs “that will sell your home quickly”. They both fell short of expectations. Lisa however came in with a solid plan, brought in a interior designer to help stage the house. She made several suggestions on painting and removing wallpaper that made all the difference in the world. After 9+ months on the market with other realtors. Lisa had an offer within 30 days!

It is amazing what a little extra work will accomplish.
Lisa is the best realtor I have worked with in 25 years.”

Zillow – Christy Chaffee

“If we had to do it all again I would not hesitate to list our home with Christy Chaffe, Ivester Jackson. We were well represented from start to finish: our agent’s expertise, the amazing marketing materials created for our home to a smooth closing with no unexpected surprises. Thanks again, Christy Chaffee!”  twoangelsrus

Zillow – Leslie Fisher

“We worked with Leslie to purchase our first home about a year after we moved to Charlotte. She spent several months with us, driving around and just looking at houses and very quickly helped us figure out what we wanted. Over this time, we developed a great relationship with her. She was open and honest with us about all of the houses we looked at, and at no point in time did we feel any pressure to make offers or speed up our buying process. Once we decided to make an offer, Leslie’s key strengths kicked in– she is VERY organized and a tough negotiator.” 

Facebook – Susan Dolan

“She gets things done and has her clients best interest at heart. Breath of fresh air.” Bettina Morgan Howard

Zillow – Jackie Morgan Group

“Jackie was great from start to finish! From both the seller and buyer aspect she listened to our wants and needs and left very little work on our end. We always new she had our best interest in mind. When issues arose, she calmed our fears and guided us through it with ease. She comes highly recommended by us!” Kaitlyn Richer

Yelp – Dee Reid

“The epitome of professionalism and personalized service.  Dee was great and so vital to us finding the house that was a perfect fit.  We truly cannot say enough great things about all that Dee did to make finding and buying a house easy and painless.  A+++ with everything.”  Jay S.
