We are a married couple who have been in the business for nearly 25 years. We serve the Greater Orlando area with emphasis on Maitand, Winter Park, and surrounding areas. We're here to help!
Get to know Charlie & Malaney West
We both have our GRI and CRS designations, have been active in the local Board of Realtors, and have won many production awards over the years. Malaney had a stroke 4 years ago and has recovered really well. Due to health issues and the downturn in the market, our business took a downward spiral and we are trying to re-jump-start our business by investing in marketing, building our listing inventory, and getting personal coaching. We have been with Coldwell Banker in Winter Park for nearly 20 years, and love that company!
Our manager & assistant manager are very pro-active in providing us with ongoing training and excellent tools. Buyers and Sellers alike seem to enjoy working with us, and tell us they appreciate the attention to detail with which we work. We are asked often why we haven't retired, and the answer is.....well, we just never thought about it. We do this full time, and it is our living. And, we happen to like it very much. We are not ones to just sit for long periods!
Our greatest joy is our family. Next comes friends. We are active in church and love the outdoors. Before the health issues, we were active tennis players and bikers, using the beautiful bike trails around the Orlando area. We are gradually working our way back into these activities. Malaney's goal is to be able to walk without a cane, and that's coming! We also enjoy boating on the WP Chain of Lakes on our pontoon boat.
We love it when the child of someone we sold a home to 20 years ago calls and tells us they want to buy a home but don't know where to start! Or a friend calls and tells us they are ready to down-size. We believe in balancing work and business, while maintaining a sense of humor. We have to say that life is good!
We try not to specialize in one particular area of the market, but have several "niches". Our business runs the gamut from 1st time home buyers to high-end listings, and everything in-between. Coldwell Banker is a member of Cartus Relocation and USAA, and we are on the relocation team. Having moved many times ourselves we "feel their pain"!
Our most favorite area to work in is Winter Park-Maitland, and from there we can go almost anywhere!
