Charlotte Jean Works Hard + Loves The Olympia, WA Community
Olympia is an amazing area and we’re proud to call it home. Because we love living and working here in WA so much, it makes it easy to help local families and investors buy and sell local properties.
Representing Olympia, WA‘s homeowners and future homeowners, we are committed to educating our clients and the public with truthful data and information so that they are informed about the real estate market and confident in their decision to buy, sell or remain in their home.
Our mission is to serve not sell and to be advocates for our clients, whether that is in the form of education or during a negotiation. We want our clients to feel comfortable throughout the process. Our clients appreciate our patience, no-pressure sales, ability to listen and explain everything so that they feel comfortable taking the next step.
Knowing the local Olympia WA real estate market like the back of our hand should be a given for any real estate professional you consider working with. Market knowledge can be the difference between you overpaying or getting a great deal, finding the right property or missing it, and buying a property fully informed or missing critical things during inspection that can cost you.
But where we take it farther is our focus on you having an amazing buying or selling experience so you can focus on living life.
Let us worry about the details.
If you want to chat real estate or even just connect for a quick coffee, reach out to me anytime!

Charlotte Jean, REALTOR®: Always deliver value!
Constantly embracing innovation, one of Birch & Cedar Realty Group‘s core values, Charlotte has incorporated technology, video and 21st century digital marketing strategies, used by Fortune 500 companies, to revamp the real estate experience for her buyers and sellers. She’s taken to social media platforms to provide education and much needed truth in an industry where news media tends to use scare tactics or click-bait. “It always amazes me when I read a headline and then the following article, how offbase it is with what is really going on in the industry and here in our local market.”
Charlotte focuses on new techniques, strategies, and technologies to make sure that her clients have the best experience possible. For sellers, this means that Charlotte does not rely on putting a sign in your yard, putting the home in the MLS and waiting for it to sell. “A yard sign, newspaper marketing and traditional open houses aren’t tactics that work anymore. You have to go where the buyers are…online. So, I make sure I am up to date on the latest digital marketing trends to get you massive exposure on your home.” Using professional photographers, stagers, videographers, drone photography, virtual tours, single property websites, virtual online open houses, and unique advertising techniques, Charlotte’s marketing stands out and reaches tens of thousands of locals and out-of-state buyers every week. This exposure is key to netting the most money and selling as fast as possible.
For buyers, Charlotte educates her clients on every step in the transaction. Starting with financing, she works with her clients and their lender to make sure they have a budget that truly fits their lifestyle, the best loan program, appropriate financing, and ensuring that all aspects of the payment and loan are understood. She focuses on out of the box solutions to help find her clients the best property to suit their needs. Charlotte uses Virtual Reality House Hunting to not only help her clients save time while looking for a home, but as a backbone to helping her relocation clients find a home remotely.
Just as Charlotte is passionate about educating her clients and the public, she’s dedicated to continuing education for herself as well. Charlotte spends thousands of dollars every year on classes, summits, coaching and networking opportunities allowing her to learn from the best and network with top producing agents around the country. “Education, coaching and masterminds have been key to building my business and adjusting quickly as the market changes. I have been able to surround myself with other innovative agents across the nation.”
By building trust with honest, integrity, reliability and professionalism, Charlotte continues to build her real estate career on referrals and repeat business. You should have a REALTOR® in your back pocket that has a pulse on the market and the community. Someone you can go to for answers to your questions or referrals for vendors, not just when it’s time to buy or sell a home.
“My goal is to be a community market leader with a pulse on both the community and the real estate market. It’s not about real estate transactions, it’s about the people. That’s where I want to focus. I’m here to be your trusted advisor and serve, not sell.” When Charlotte isn’t helping her clients, she is enjoying reading (a mix of all genres), listening to podcasts (usually business or true crime) or spending family time with her husband, son and furbabies. They enjoy outdoor activities, local wineries, farmer’s markets and local restaurants, along with spending a lot of time building Lego sets together.
