The Memphis Ambassador

    Maybe it was being born here; maybe it was the summer visits where family took me to downtown, Chucalissa, Maywood (yea Maywood ha!), Botanic Gardens, Dixon, the symphony, the parks, music, and more; maybe it was the grit that gets in when I'd visit more family down further south in the Delta at Helena; or maybe it was coming back here for college and experiencing the town as a young adult. Regardless of where it came from, this town gets in your blood and in your soul. A friend recently called me the Ambassador. Haven't thought of myself that way, but I like it. It seems to fit me.

    And who am I you may ask? I have a BA from Rhodes College and an MBA from The University of Memphis. I'm a 30-year veteran of corporate real estate with multi-family, hospitality, and student housing experience in market information, operations, sales, and development. With nearly $1 billion in financing and development under my belt, I'm quite comfortable helping you assess the residential market whether it's a $75,000 or $1 million home. What I don't know, I'll find out for both of us!

    More importantly to me, is my passion and commitment to help you find your place here, to help you experience for the first time or rekindle that grit, that "thing", that gets in your soul around this town.

    Our town is Shelby County, Tipton County, Fayette County...

    It's Memphis, Lakeland, Collierville, Germantown, Arlington, Atoka, Munford, Oakland, and so many other communities.

    It's music, dance, art, food, sports, science, education, and nature.

    It's volunteers, donors, and helping hands.

    It's our home. It's us. Each of us.

    Let me help you find your home in our town.

    My Client Testimonials

    Professional, courteous, punctual, kind, accommodating are only a few adjectives I would use to describe Charles Harris. From the moment we met Charles I knew we made the right decision to rely on him to guide us through the stressful process of home hunting in Memphis. His willingness to arrange viewings of multiple homes until we found the right one was so helpful. I could go on but I don't want him to get a big head! Just know that if you're looking for someone to help you in buying or selling a home you would be remiss not to avail Charles of his services. Robert & Roxanne Wilson
    After three years of house hunting with other realtors in the Memphis area, we were very disheartened about finding a home for our family, but Charles Harris made it happen! Charles always made himself available to view new listings and was very professional and knowledgeable. If you are looking to buy your next home, we would definitely recommend giving Charles a call! Amber and Matt Sullivan

    Charles did a fabulous job finding the perfect home for us in Collierville! More importantly, in a very tight, competitive, and fast moving housing market, he made sure we had all the info, specs, and comps to put in an offer that couldn’t be beat and wouldn’t be turned down! The cherry on top in working with Charles…it was enjoyable to ride around the Memphis area with him as he took off his realtor hat in the car and put on his tour/history guide hat. He showed us great houses, great food, great local hang out spots, and a record setting Grizzlies game! We highly recommend using Charles for any and all people buying homes in the Memphis area! Anne and Ben Heath

    I’m very thankful for the help and support Charles gave me through the process of purchasing my new home. He was kind and attentive and always available to answer questions or calm my fears. When one offer didn’t work out he was diligent to search for another suitable option until we were able to secure a contract that stood through to closing. If I need a realtor in the future I will definitely give Charles a call. Carol Hoyle
