We had the good fortune of connecting with Charis Johnson and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Charis, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
First and foremost being in charge of my life, able to make decisions based on my needs. I enjoy being able to pick and choose the days I want to work, it allows me to be present for my family.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
After being a firefighter for 17yrs, you learn quick thinking and creative solutions for solving problems, but most importantly you learn patience. The biggest challenge is communication, there seems to be a miscommunication when it comes to real estate & real life. I want to bridge that gap, put people in homes they can afford and allow them to make their dreams possible. The home buying process doesn’t have to be hard, I aim to make to make it fun. When people choose me as their realtor, they know I am supportive & encouraging.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Well my best friend is coming soon for my birthday and we have a weekend of stuff planned already. I’m so excited but for the food we are going to The Gatsby in Montrose, the best steak & service hands down and we are going to try out The Gatsby Prime Seafood. We both are taco lovers so we must go to Tacos A Go-Go in the Heights. The night time we will go to Five Central one night, Urban Social another night and this hidden gem in the Heights called Ivy House, so cute and the drinks are good. We love to laugh and have fun, so we’d go to Puttery and The Post.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
My sons, Ricardo & Deshawn. I was a young parent so we kinda grew up together. They are my driving force to continue to show up for people and do better. I want to show them that anything is possible when you do something you enjoy.
